The Magic Thief

* * * */ Four Stars

Genre: Adventure, Action, Danger, Mystery, Suspense, Drama, Humor (though it is rather mild and widespread . . .)

When Conn (a street rat who's mother died) tries to steal a passing wizard's Locus Magicalus, the source of a wizard's magic (they cannot preform any magic without it), he is supposed to . . . well, be vaporized. That's what happens when a person who isn't its user snatches it. But, Conn is okay. Nothing really happened to him. The wizard in question, Nevery, has just returned from a long exile. And, seeing that Conn is different, he decides to take him on as his apprentice. Why is Conn still alive after living on the streets for so many years? Why does the magic of his city 'protect' him? What is really going on behind the loss of city magic?And finally,will Conn shine in his new role, or will he die saving all of the magic in his world?
I LOVED this enchanting book by Sarah Prineas. It is an amazing book that should have a place on everyone's shelf.
