The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an absolutely captivating debut fantasy adventure. Full of magic and trickery, this is the story of a wizard and his new apprentice trying to discover why the magic in their city is fading and how they must stop it from disappearing completely. It’s a richly imagined story and the first in a trilogy. You’ll be enchanted and excited and for sure you won’t be able to put it down.

Synopsis

The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas

Becoming the wizard's apprentice, Conn becomes embroiled in his master's plan to save the city, whose magic is slowly dying. Meanwhile, the Wizard, Nevery, is secretly beginning to question Conn's past: why did the thief survive in the Twilight?
