Un ladrón tiene mucho de mago. Yo soy rápido con las manos. Y puedo hacer desaparecer cosas. Pero un día se me ocurrió robarle al mago su locus magicalicus y el que estuvo a punto de desaparecer para siempre fui yo.
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...
¿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.
In a city that runs on a dwindling supply of magic, a young boy is drawn into a life of wizardry and adventure. Conn should have dropped dead the day he picked Nevery's pocket and touched the wizard's locus magicalicus, a stone used to focus magic and work spells. But for some reason he did not. 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.
Never turn your back on a dragon! Sneaking out of prison isn't easy, unless you are a thief, or a wizard. Luckily, Conn is both! Trouble is, once he's out, where does he go? His home is a pile of rubble since he blew it up doing magic. His master, the wizard Nevery, is not happy with him. Worst of all, Conn's been exiled, and staying in the city will mean his death. But Wellmet is in danger from an evil predator coming to destroy the city, and Conn must set off on a quest to fight it. Suddenly, a huge shadow looms over him and he is swept away by something more awesome than his wildest imaginings. Is Conn brave enough to answer magic's call, or is he really just a thief at heart? Sarah Prineas's incredible world explodes with adventure-a place where cities run on living magic and heroes come from the most surprising places.
Never mix fire with magic! Conn may only be a wizard's apprentice, but even he knows it's dangerous to play with fire . . . especially around magic. His master, Nevery, warns him that it could all blow up in his face. Besides, they have bigger problems to deal with. There is evil afoot in the city of Wellmet, an evil that isn't human. But Conn is drawn to the murmurs he hears every time he sets off an explosion-something is trying to talk to him, to warn him. When none of the wizards listen, Conn takes matters into his own hands. His quest to protect everything he loves brings him face-to-face with a powerful sorcerer-king and a treachery beyond even his vivid imagination. Sarah Prineas works her own spells as she transports us to an extraordinary world where cities are run on living magic and even a thief can become a wizard's apprentice.
A young thief is drawn into a life of magic and adventure after picking the pocket of the powerful wizard Nevery Flinglas, who has returned from exile to attempt to reverse the troubling decline of magic in Wellmet City.

"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.
