Nevery finds that interesting, and he takes Conn as his apprentice on the provision that the boy find a locus stone of his own. His master, Nevery, warns him that it could all blow up in his face. Besides, they have bigger problems to deal with. 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.
Luckily, Conn is both!
His home is a pile of rubble since he blew it up doing magic. His master, the wizard Nevery, is not happy with him. 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. Buy Books! Authors Say. That same jewel sits at our right at the bottom with a salamander opposite it on the left. The series information is large on a brass plaque at the top, a semi-circular addition with a black connwaer looking over his shoulder below that, and below that, the much smaller title inside a scroll-like shape.
The title is a metaphor that can apply to Conn and Lord Jaggus, for both are Lost in their own ways. Aug 09, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: No one believes his theory that the magic is a living being. As shadowy beings stalk Wellmet and attack its residents, Conn becomes desperate to communicate with the magic again.
But his experiments with pyrotechnics cause a disaster so great he is exiled from Wellmet. Outside the city, Conn steals a place on a envoyage to a distant city he suspects may be involved in Wellmet's troubles. Along the way he makes new friends and new enemies, and discovers a threat far greater than he ever imagined. Even Conn's great skills of stealth and thievery may not be enough this time.
Conn comes off at times more subdued than in the first book, but overall he has the same straight-forwardly charming voice. Minor characters from the first book have their roles expanded, making up for the fact that the wonderful Nevery and Benet are left behind for many chapters.
It's a delight seeing the world further explored and learning all the new and intriguing details about how it works. The enemy Conn faces is truly frightening and unexpected, and the stage is well set for the trilogy's concluding book.
Recommended for all fantasy readers - though of course it's most enjoyable if you've read the first book already. Jan 04, Deva Fagan added it Shelves: A highly enjoyable continuation of the events of the first book, expanding the cast of characters, the scope of the world, and the complexity of the plot.
Some of my favorite bits: Conn and his understated personality. He keeps so much inside, but there's just enough insight that I felt for him greatly, particularly at a certain point midway through when some very bad things happen, and at the end.

There was one paragraph at the end that just got me in the heart, because the whole book had at least in my mind built up to it. I love that! I enjoyed getting to see more of her and because I am a romantic sap I am already eagerly anticipating how the relationship between she and Conn will develop in future books as she and Conn get a little older.
Especially with Argent in the mix I was very glad to see Rowan already putting Argent in his place though, heh. The underlying mystery. I'm intrigued by the way magic seems to work in this series and particularly Conn's relationship to the magic of Wellmet and the various animals that are associated with the magics. I am looking forward to learning more about what is really going on in book 3. Also, the dragons! Mar 15, Karol Sigda rated it it was amazing.
If you do then this book is for you. It's a fiction book. Let's review. The setting is part in Wellmet and part in Desh. In the beginning Shadows Attack Wellmet. In the rising action Conn gets exiled. In the climax Conn is set free by his friends. In the falling action Jaggus Falls to his death. In the resolution Conn goes to jail for literally setting foot in Wellmet. Let's do another paragraph shall we. Jaggus's death was scary. I agree with that but if you watch 1 of these movies from disney Beauty and the Beast, Snow White or The great mouse detective.
Conn deserved his exile. I'd agree with that but he is our protagonist. How 'bout another? Kernn's a jerk. I agree with that but she's just doing her job. Jaggus is just troubled. I'd agree with that but he is evil. In conclusion this book is epic.
That's why I gave it 5 stars. I recommend this to all you who like magic. So this is Karol signing out. View all 3 comments. Jul 14, Ellen rated it really liked it Shelves: In which we find, Conn, bereft of his locus magicalicus, trying to talk to Wellmet's magic by blowing things up.
I think I called Conn the Steve Jobs of magicians in my review of book 1. Maybe I should have gone for Thomas Edison, who I believe also blew things up. Edison lost the hearing in one of his ears and Conn blows up his master's house and gives Bennett, Nevery's bodyguard, a skull fracture.
We've probably all known people like Conn; people who are so convinced that they are right that th In which we find, Conn, bereft of his locus magicalicus, trying to talk to Wellmet's magic by blowing things up. We've probably all known people like Conn; people who are so convinced that they are right that they disregard the advice and rules of their elders and "betters. Conn, like Nevery before him, offends the political and magical bureaucracies so thoroughly that he is exiled and ends up tagging along with an unsuspecting diplomatic envoyage to a neighboring land from which dark magic may be emanating.
Normally I would resent the cliff-hanger ending, but luckily I didn't discover the series until after book 3 had been written, so it's all good Conn menangkap penggalan kata diantara asap ledakan. Sihir telah berbicara!
Makin lama cerita dalam buku ini kian menarik. Bayangkan saja, seorang penyihir tanpa memiliki media apapun untuk melakukan sihir Tiada tongkat, apalagi locus magicalicus.
Namun begitulah nasib Conn. Sedang locus magicalicus-nya rusak ia nyaris tidak bisa melakukan Damrodel Sedang locus magicalicus-nya rusak ia nyaris tidak bisa melakukan sihir. Ia juga tidak diperbolehkan sekolah karena tidak memiliki locus magicalicus. Para Magister berpendapat ide-ide Conn mengenai sihir bisa meracuni anak lainnya.
Bahkan Conn percaya bahwa sihir adalah semacam mahluk hidup! Dan ia bisa berkomunikasi dengan sihir melalui ledakan. Mantra merupakan bahasa sihir. Tak heran jika ia seakan terobsesi dengan ledakan. Conn merasakan bahaya yang datang. Ia harus berbicara dengan sihir walau resikonya besar. Alih-alih berhenti, Conn malah melakukan percobaan yang membuat heartsease meledak. Untuk itu maka ia dibuang keluar dari Wellmet. Berbekal keyakinannya akan pesan dari sihir, Conn pergi ke Desh, sebuah kota kota berkilauan di padang gurun yang dipimpin oleh Jaggus sang Raja Sihir.
Walau masih muda namun rambutnya sudah memutih serta selalu dikepang seperti ekor kucing. Matanya berwarna biru sungguh kontras dengan pakaian putih bersulam benang emas dan perak kegemarannya. Ia merasa kejahatan yang sedang berlangsung bisa ditemukan penanggulangannya disana. Dalam buku ini, kemampuan mencuri Conn ternyata berguna Ada hal yang membuat saya penasaran.
Entah kenapa, dalam buku ini locus magicalicus tidak dicetak miring mungkin karena sudah tidak dianggap kalimat asing. Sepanjang buku ini, banyak cerita tentang aneka jenis makanan. Sang koki,Benet, telah berhasil membuat Conn lupa akan bagaimana rasanya lapar.

Jun 07, Eva Mitnick rated it liked it Shelves: I loved the fresh voice and intriguing premise of The Magic Thief, so I eagerly dove into book 2.
Conn has discovered that explosions allow the magic of his city Wellmet to talk to him, and since his locus magicalicus stone was destroyed at the end of book 1, this is very important to him. This is horrifying to Conn but just as well, as Conn is quite certain that the magic of Wellmet w I loved the fresh voice and intriguing premise of The Magic Thief, so I eagerly dove into book 2. This is horrifying to Conn but just as well, as Conn is quite certain that the magic of Wellmet wants him to investigate and solve the problem of the Shadows that have been invading Wellmet — and the root of the evil seems to lie in the desert city of Desh.
With his friend Rowan and her retinue, he struggles against a mysterious magician and an ancient, malignant magic. With the destruction of his powerful locus magicalicus, Conn has seemed to lose some of his vigor and energy. Despite his penchant for explosions, he seems strangely subdued and even taciturn — even Rowan notices, pointing out to him several times that he has stopped talking to her. Getting exiled from his beloved city and its magic — and from his friends and his master — is horrifying and tragic for him, and it just makes him more silent and intense.
Luckily, some bouts of mortal danger toward the end of the book serve to wake Conn and the reader up, and we all gallop together toward the action-packed conclusion.
Finally, at the very end, comes the emotional scene that has been lacking, and we realize that Conn and Nevery both have feelings that they very rarely share. Final verdict — all fans of the first book must read this installment despite its occasional lack of affect. By the end, the old Conn is back, and readers will be on tenterhooks to find out what happens next. Recommended for grades 4 to 7.
Go read that book, otherwise a second-in-series review might spoil you a wee bit.
After losing his locus stone, Conn experiments with pyrotechnics to find another way of talking to the magic. Nevery tries to warn him, but when has Conn ever listened to a warning?
Add to that the fact that Wellmet is seemingly threatened by forces from outside the city, and you'll realize that this book is a huge step up from the relatively lighthearted adventure in "Stolen" "Lost" follows the events of Stolen.
Add to that the fact that Wellmet is seemingly threatened by forces from outside the city, and you'll realize that this book is a huge step up from the relatively lighthearted adventure in "Stolen". The adventure is still there, along with a bit of travel, new characters and an insight into the worldbuilding as Sarah Prineas introduces us to the city of Desh and its Sorcerer-King Jaggus. It is, however, also very emotional for a children's book, even though there are elements of humour. Conn is faced with evil he has never encountered before, has to live through the consequences of his own actions, and - even worse - has to go through emotional challenges.
While every emotional challenge is resolved at the end not all questions answered though - they need something to do in book three after all , I did tear up now and then while reading it. Which is what I'm going to read now: Mar 20, Ann rated it it was amazing Shelves: LOST" is the second book in the series that centers around street boy turned magical apprentice Connwaer.
This book picks up shortly after the first one ends, and deals with Conn's lack of a locus stone, his belief that the magic is a being protecting the city, and the consequences of these two plots.
Also, there's reports of strange Shadow creatures coming to Wellmet at night and leaving with people's lives. I really enjoyed this book, and think it's one of the best lately in t "The Magic Thief: I really enjoyed this book, and think it's one of the best lately in the Middle Grade genre.
I enjoy the writing and the plot which, while easily read isn't simplistic , and I adore Conn. Some of the other characters didn't really arc too much in this book, but some of the secondary characters from the first book are given more layers.
Works can belong to more than one series.
In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg. By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor.
So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.
A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question.
So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
