BOOK FOUR: THE MAGIC THIEF SERIES. Conn has come a long way since the days when he was a thief and a wizard's apprentice. He and the dragon Pip have saved the city of Wellmet from doom more than once, and now his best friend. Duchess Rowan, wants to make him the ducal magister, the city's most important wizard. But the older wizards don't trust Con...especially now that their locus magicalicus stones are disappearing! Once a thief, always a thief, they think.
Oh. My. Goodness. I was beyond thrilled when I saw that Sarah Prineas was writing a fourth book in this super series. She had written the first three and then veered off for another four book series which, honestly, didn't grip me like The Magic Thief did. Then, when I saw she was going back to her original series I pre-purchased, Home, right away. And I'm so glad I did! Since I'm chatting about her hiatus from Conn and his adventures, let me say Bravo to Sarah as a writer for making this fourth book a seamless continuation for us as readers. As writers and people we grow over the years and my one worry was that after having taken such a long break, this book might feel different and not as awesome as the first three in the series. I'm so happy to tell you that book four IS as awesome as the first three and it does feel like coming "home" to the same characters, same streets, same everything and it's all good.
