Welcome to Pendark, a city of murky canals, brutal gladiator fights, and sorcerers who feud over access to the silvery magical substance known as Watermight.
Tamri is a scrappy magic thief who’s trying to get her grandmother out of this festering swamp of a city. But when a quick score involving a dragon goes wrong, she’s shipped off to a distant mountaintop kingdom where the legendary Fire Queen is starting a school for magic wielders.
Tamri’s not just going there to learn. The King of Pendark suspects the Fire Queen is up to something more dangerous than training young wielders, and he orders Tamri to find out the truth. If she fails, neither she nor her grandmother will survive the school year.
NOTE: You don’t need to read the Steel and Fire books to enjoy The Watermight Thief, but it does contain spoilers for the original series. Here’s the box set of the first three books.

“This is a great YA fantasy story. There’s a lot of action early on, well defined characters, dragons, magic, and even a bit of romance. My interest was captured early on, as the story is fast-paced. It has all the ingredients to create a wonderful series.” –Valerie Bliss, Advance Reviewer
“I rarely find a book that takes me off my balance, serving up surprise after surprise because it’s so different. This is one of those books that if you have a must-read or intend-to-read books list, this should be at the top of that list.” –Rickey Morris, Goodreads Reviewer
