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.
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.
