by Sarah Prineas

Escapar de la prisión no es nada fácil... a menos que seas un ladrón o un mago. Por suerte, ya sabemos que para Conn esto no es ningún problema, pero ¿qué va a hacer después?, ¿adónde va a ir? Imposible volver a Wellmet, porque si le capturan le cortarán la cabeza. Pero tampoco puede alejarse de la ciudad, pues una oscura amenaza se cierne sobre ella, y él parece ser el único que se ha dado cuenta...

El ladrón mago. Perdido

by Sarah Prineas

¿Quién es Conn? ¿Es un mago? ¿Es un ladrón? A él le gustaría que la comunidad le reconociera de una vez por todas como mago, pero sabe que eso solo será posible cuando encuentre su locus magicalicus; de hecho ya tenía uno -resultó ser la piedra más exquisita de la ciudad-, pero se destruyó en una de sus aventuras. Ahora está convencido de que mediante un experimento pirotécnico la magia le dirá dónde se esconde su verdadero amuleto. El problema es que la pirotecnia está terminantemente prohibida pero, ¿es eso un problema para alguien como él?Mientras, en Wellmet, extrañas sombras convierten en estatuas de piedra y de polvo todo cuanto tocan, un polvo que sólo puede provenir de Desh, la lejana ciudad del desierto.

Nevery finds that interesting, and he takes Conn as his apprentice on the provision that the boy find a locus stone of his own. But Conn has little time to search for his stone between wizard lessons and helping Nevery discover who--or what--is stealing the city of Wellmet's magic.

Winterling

by Sarah Prineas

"We live here, my girl, because it is close to the Way, and echoes of its magic are felt in our world. The Way is a path leading to another place, where the people are governed by different rules. Magic runs through them and their land." With her boundless curiosity and wild spirit, Fer has always felt that she doesn't belong. Not when the forest is calling to her, when the rush of wind through branches feels more real than school or the quiet farms near her house. Then she saves an injured creature-he looks like a boy, but he's really something else. He knows who Fer truly is, and invites her through the Way, a passage to a strange, dangerous land. Fer feels an instant attachment to this realm, where magic is real and oaths forge bonds stronger than iron. But a powerful huntress named the MÓr rules here, and Fer can sense that the land is perilously out of balance. Fer must unlock the secrets about the parents she never knew and claim her true place before the worlds on both sides of the Way descend into endless winter. Sarah Prineas captivates in this fantasy-adventure about a girl who must find within herself the power to set right a terrible evil.
