A young thief is drawn into a life of magic and adventure after picking the pocket of the powerful wizard Nevery Flinglas, who has returned from exile to attempt to reverse the troubling decline of magic in Wellmet.


A good read, even for precocious readers.   Not dark, not a lot of violence, main character is a level-headed, clever kid.

Sexual Content





Adults hit and beat kids.  A scene where bad guys attack Conn. Not a lot of description.


Conn’s mother is dead-her legs broken by bad guys and she died.  Conn is a pickpocket and a thief, able to pick locks.  His ability to pick locks is lauded multiple times and kids may want to give it a try.


Spells, scrying.
