Despite successfully securing a balance between the competing magics of Wellmet, Co ...more
Not to sound like an absolute, utter bi-atch, but it has been year and I AM SO EXCITED. Imagine me as a fat kid. This story is my cake. And my parents have sent me to "Work ...more
I'd been waiting for this book for what felt like several lifetimes, but in actuality was only 5 years. Still, to a 12-year old bemoaning that Conn wasn't "Conn" and screeching about another book to a 17-year old staying up to finish this book when she should have been writing school assignments is pretty impressive.
It having been 5 years since I read the third book, (view spoiler)[ I cannot quite recall whether or not Conn had his memories back or we merely w ...more
His best friend Rowan is, at sixteen, the new Duchess of Wellmet and his cousin Embre is the Underlord who runs the Twilight part of the city. Rowan wants to "reward" Conn for his efforts to save and protect Wellmet by making him the Ducal Magister. Conn doesn't ...more
I’ll be honest: After The Magic Thief: Found, I couldn’t see where author Sarah Prineas could possibly take the story of a thieving gutterboy turned prescient wizard. That just shows my lack of imagination — and faith in a superior writer. I should have known better!
Lady Rowan, now the Duchess of Wellmet, elevates Connwaer — much to his distress — to Ducal Magister ...more
When I pick up the fourth volume of a trilogy, (this series supposedly wrapped up with the third volume in 2010), I think of a performer waiting nervously in the wings after his act is done, waiting to see if the audience's applause is enthusiastic enough to justify an encore. With this series the audience was very enthusiastic and there was much disappointment that the Magic Thief trilogy had concluded. Well, Book 4 has finally been launched, and it was worth the w ...more
For fans of the Magic Thief series by Sarah Prineas, the latest installment, The Magic Thief: Home, is a much anticipated and highly welcome addition. It also has the potential to draw in new fans as a new chapter in Conn's life and the city of Wellmet begins. Whether readers are old fans or newly experiencing the magic for the first time, every reader of this book is in for a fantastically twisty tale of magic, mayhem, discovery, and int ...more
This is the fourth book in the Magic Thief series. This has been a wonderful middle grade fantasy series that is great for all ages. This book was just as wonderful as the previous books in the series. My whole family enjoyed it a lot.
My whole family listened to this together on audiobook on a road trip back from Yellowstone. This whole series has been incredibly well done on audiobook. The narrator does Conn’s voice spot on and is excellent at all the other character voices as well. I highly re ...more
I also love Nevery and Conn’s relationship and its development over the four books. By the time you get to t ...more
The first half of the book annoyed me because after everything Conn had done, everyone was still treating him like a criminal or a child. I mean, Rowan goes and names him Ducal Magister, but then doesn't want to l ...more
We have the two magics, Wellmet and Arhionvar, fighting with each other. We also have unrest in Twilight and Sunrise both. We have locus magicalicii going missing. We have people trying to put Conn in a ...more

Magic is a living being-- it fights, it settles, and it can be harmed. After taking in the magic of a different city, the magic in Connwaer's hometown is in a mess, trying to figure out where they belong. Through this, the spells cast through a wizards' locus magicalius, the gateway to magic so to speak, are going haywire. On top of that, now these locus stones have started disappearing, leading to a plan much more sinister than first conceived. Now, it is up ...more
This book was really awesome. In some book series, some books are really good and other ones are crap. But so far through out this series, the books are all similarly well written and captivating (if not more so than the last).
Conn (ex gutter-boy/thief/wizard) is given the unwanted job of being a Magister of Wellmet. However, Conn and his dragon Pip soon find themselves in trouble (again) and are accused of stealing other Magister's locus stones. Conn, after not much consideration, decides to j...more

I really can't put it down! I'll say it right here that this installment is even better than the first three books! The action starts quite earlie ...more

After the catastrophic events of book 3, Wellmet has two magics running it, and they don't get along so well. Plus, Conn has to clear his name when someone starts stealing locus stones. The magisters think it's him, but it's not, of course. Conn goes undercover on the streets of the Twilight to get the scoop.
All the conflicts introduced in book 3 are carried forward. The dragon ...more
It was nice to see Conn confront his past a lot in this book, although it felt like less happened in it than some of the others. The plot was a bit simple, to be honest. But I still enjoyed it, especially the interactions between the characters. I love how Sarah could make you notice things about the characters without ever saying so, like Ke ...more
This book is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! From the start of the series to the end every character, symbol, and place has been thought out and planed so well! Conn, Nevery, Benet, and all the rest have not failed to charm me, and scare me at the same time! Hats off to Sarah Prineas for an amazing book! Many more successes to come!
Sarah Prineas has a loyal fan who will continue to devour her books in less than ...more
