One night, Conn, a boy just wanting to fill his stomach, picks the wizard Nevery's pocket. He takes out the wizard's power stone. Shocked that Conn was not immediatly killed by the stone, Nevery takes Conn on as a servant. Seeing Conns inquisitive nature and promise for magic, Nevery keeps him around. But Conn must find his own unique stone, his "Locus Magicalus" that will focus his magical powers.
One of Neveries fellow wizards convinced Nevery that one of his friends was in cohoots with the city's dark underlord. On a quest to defeat the evil underlord, Conn also must find his Locus Magicalus in time.
Readers will love this unlikely adventure by Sarah Prineas.
I rate this book 3 1/2 cheeseburgers.
Note: Sarah Prineas has a new book out for 2012: Winterling
