But in the ashes of this destruction, there are some who ask: Are the Greencloaks to blame? The young heroes are shocked to find themselves on trial, judged by a council of the world's leaders. Then the unthinkable happens. The council is attacked from within -- by Greencloaks --and an important leader lies slain.
In the blink of an eye, Erdas's saviors become wanted fugitives. Someone is trying to frame them as traitors, but why? As the four friends race to uncover this mystery, only one thing is clear . . .
The war is far from over.
Discover the fantasy and wonder of The Magic Thief, the first book in Sarah Prineas’s acclaimed middle grade fantasy series! Diana Wynne Jones, author of Howl's Moving Castle, said: "I couldn't put it down. Wonderful, exciting stuff."
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.

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?

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.

¡Vuela junto a los dragones en esta asombrosa fantasía de Sarah Prineas, autora de la exitosa serie El ladrón mago!
Rafi Bywater no es como los demás. En su pequeña aldea desconfían de él porque pasa demasiado tiempo en una guarida abandonada de dragones. Acusado por un desconocido, el señor Flitch, de llevar "la huella del dragón" Rafi se propone descubrir la verdad sobre los dragones… y sobre sí mismo.
Durante su viaje, Rafi se hace amigo de una joven científica de gran talento, Maud, que también tiene secretos, y con quien se embarca en la búsqueda de los dragones. A la vez que escapan juntos de un peligroso cazadragones, se ven envueltos en una persecución de coches a vapor y averiguan qué quiere de verdad de Rafi el señor Flitch. Ah, y a los dragones sí que los encuentran.
"Un cuento de aventuras y dragones, con un final emocionantísimo".
"—El mundo está cambiando, Rafi —respondió—. Con tanta fábrica, tanto motor de vapor y tanta carretera, no queda sitio para los dragones.
Quizá el de Barrow ya no esté. —Inspeccionó la pezuña de la oveja—. Ya puedes soltarla — dijo y se levantó.
—Hay quien dice —siguió explicando Shar— que lo único que hacían los dragones era robar. En Skarth se cuenta que cada dragón roba y acumula cosas diferentes, como joyas, coronas o princesas.
—Se agachó a recoger su cayado—. Hay quien dice que estamos mejor sin dragones.
—¿Y a ti qué te parece? —pregunté.
Se giró a mirar la cumbre más alta, donde había vivido el dragón.
Volvía a tener los ojos vidriosos.
—Ah, Rafi… Es que el dragón era tan bonito cuando volaba… Se lanzaba desde allá arriba, y al desplegar las alas se oía una especie de trueno. Después se levantaba el viento, y el dragón empezaba a dar vueltas con las escamas alumbradas por el sol. Nuestro dragón era más azul que el cielo y brillaba al volar. —Sacudió la cabeza, y enfocó la vista—. Peligroso lo era, no te queda duda, pero montaba guardia en las montañas y velaba por nosotros. El dragón era nuestro protector".
“An adventurous dragon tale that delivers an emotionally satisfying ending.” —Kirkus
