Reader reviewed by Juliann



Conn is a wizards apprentice in a world where cities run on
living magic. His citys magic calls on him to stop the evil magic of a far
away city.



This is the second book in the Magic Thief trilogy. While Lost
is not a stand-alone novel, Prineas
includes sufficient references to the events in the first book to keep the
reader from being lost. 



Rather than merely making up words, Prineas plays with real
word roots (e.g., werelights, magister, Wellmet). Prineas uses the elements of
journal entries and letters so the reader knows how the story is progressing
apart from Conn without slowing the tempo with additional dialogue.



There are stereotypes, such as the wizard Neverly having a
cane and gray long beard and the evil wizard having an affinity for snakes. The
story is clearly a stance between light and dark, good and evil (e.g., the
section of Wellmet where the magic is strong is Sunrise while the section where
the magic is weaker and crime occurs is Twilight).



Overall, Lost is good
read; however, the reader will have to wait for the third book for a
satisfactory end to Conns story.
