Review

'complex and cleverly crafted with the magical elements being extremely intricate but well constructed ... It is a very exciting story ... a gripping read' The School Librarian. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Sarah Prineas lives in the midst of the corn near Iowa City, Iowa, and can usually be found writing fantasy novels on a stealthy silver MacBook Air called Dash. Prineas's Magic Thief series introduced readers to the irascible wizard Nevery and his gutterboy apprentice, Connwaer. Sarah holds a PhD in English literature and recently taught honors seminars on fantasy and science fiction literature at the University of Iowa. She has an amazing dragon action-figure collection and occasionally bakes biscuits (although she says hers never seem to turn out as tasty as Benet's do in The Magic Thief).

Sarah is married to John Prineas, a physics professor, which comes in handy when she's writing about magic. They are the parents of Maud and Theo.

It has a great adventure with exotic characters including twists and turns in the story.

This book (and the series) does that and I highly recommend them for bedtime reading.

Format: Hardcover
Pickpocket-turned-wizard Connwaer is back for his biggest adventure ever in FOUND, the final book in the Magic Thief fantasy trilogy. This series is set in the magical city of Wellmet, which is comprised of two very different sections separated by a serpentine river flowing between them: beautiful and glamorous Sunrise on the eastern shore, and ugly, run-down Twilight on the western shore, home to all of Wellmet's warehouses and factories. The Dutchess Willa Forestal ruled over Sunrise with the help of her wizards, while Twilight found itself in the fearsome clutches of Underlord Crowe, whose minions handed out their own brand of justice.

Conn had been a "sneakthief" and "gutterboy" living on the mean streets of Twilight, trying to fill his stomach each day while evading the Underlord's grasp. That was before the great wizard Nevery Flinglas had found him and made him his own apprentice. Conn had gone to live with Nevery and his muscle man Benet in Nevery's mansion, Heartsease, on an island in the river.

In the first book, Conn had discovered that the magic that protected Wellmet and indeed enabled the city to exist at all was a living being. Magical spells were simply words spoken in the being's own tongue to enable the wizard to communicate with it, with the aid of a locus magicalicus, or a magic stone. However, in protecting the magical being from an enemy who sought to trap the magic of the city, Conn had lost his splendid locus magicalicus with which to speak to, and direct, the magic of Wellmet.

The second installment described Conn's increasingly frenzied attempts, using dangerous pyrotechnics, to find a new locus magicalicus with which to fend off the deadly shadowmen who targeted Wellmet.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Pop Bop TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 3, 2011
Format: Paperback
Volume 1, (The Magic Thief), effectively established the characters and the plot arcs for the trilogy. Volume 2, (Lost), was passable, but like all middle volumes it's purpose was to move the story and the players to the final installment, and to introduce whatever plot elements were needed to establish a foundation for the final installment.

So, the question then becomes, was it worth it and is this final volume worth the wait and effort? I would suggest that the answer to those questions is "yes". Each character stays true to form, but develops. I'm not a dragon fan at all, but the dragon's role here feels authentic. The conclusion is satisfying. The writing is leaner than in volume 2, and the author wastes little time moving the tale along.

This trilogy just seems like a very good introduction to quest/fantasy for younger readers, and well worth your consideration.

I've bought, borrowed and begged feedback from kids to find a series my son would love and not just read because we make him. He is up early reading this book. It is the third one and he takes it with him everywhere. He has 24 pages left and is really upset to see the end is near. I just googled the author and there is a fourth, but not scheduled for release until 2014. Raise a voice to the publisher and let's get this book now.

Sarah Prineas is a fantastic author. We read the first Magic Thief about 6 months ago as a bed time story to my kids. They loved it so much they asked to join her fan club and find out what else she has written.

Found is a little faster paced than "Lost", the previous book in the series. With the addition of Pip, the main character's tiny pet dragon, the book keeps you curious about this unpredictable creature will do. This is a must read. I have been enjoying it so much I find myself offering to read two to three chapters a night.

OF the three books in the Magic Thief series, Found was my favorite. I loved the pyrotechnic experiments! Connwaer continued the Journey of Exile and found a new ally, Pip. I highly recommend reading it!

I am an adult who bought the book for myself. I am a big Harry Potter fan and was looking for a book in a similar category. The Magic Thief was great I read all three books. It was a great adventure left me wanting more. I highly recommend it to all young and old.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
Sarah Prineas has penned a magnificent conclusion to her irresistible Magic Thief trilogy, which features the guttersnipe thief-turned-wizard Connwaer, his wizard mentor Nevery and his royal friend Rowan.

Conn, in exile after the literal pyrotechnics of The Magic Thief: Lost: Book Two (Magic Thief (Quality)), nonetheless conspires with Nevery to come up with a defense against the encroaching evil magic of Arionvar. To tell much more would be to spoil this novel. Let's just say that Conn heads out to find a new locus magicalicus stone and discovers it in the most unlikely spot. How he and Nevery end up protecting the city of Wellmet and its living magic makes for a most entrancing tale.

In the Audible version, narrator Greg Steinbrunner excels with all of the voices -- particularly the voice of the street-wise Conn and the slightly pompous magister Nevery.
