A great in-front-of-the-fire book that offers action and adventure, but will also touch your heart.

if you have liked other fiction books such as Harry Potter and Eragon then you will love this book. This is the second book in the The Circle Opens series and this series comes after the The Circle Of Magic trilogy. You also get more info on Daja, Tris, Sandry and Briar after they get their madalions.

This is without a doubt the best book in the series. It deserves 10 stars, but 5 was the most they would let me put. I have read them all. Ms. Peirce is an amazing writer. I started reading the books three years ago in 6th grade. it was my teacher's. You should read them. NOW!! I'm off to read now. e-mail me if your a book-a-holic. I know of most titles.

I liked this book where Briar, the student, becomes Briar the teacher. Tamora Pierce is known for her strong female protagonists in her young adult high fantasies and she's unapologetic about that. I've seen her state more than once that little boys and young men have enough fictional heroes they can identify with, but young woman not so much. Briar and this book therefore is unique among Pierce's novels in that the focus is on a male protagonist. Briar has the roughest background among the four friends that are the focus of the four Circle of Magic books--those should be read first. As a former "street rat" he knows the ways of the streets and gangs where he finds the young stone mage he mentors. His student Evvy is an appealing character in her own right and is the subject of a sequel, Melting Stones.

Briar and Rosethorn are traveling and Briar spots a street kid in a marketplace who seems to have magic with stones. Because he is the first to spot the magic, he must teach Evvy the basics or find her a teacher. One of the best in the Circle of Magic universe books. I really enjoyed the character of Evvy.

I really don't like Evvy much. She varies wildly between totally pliable and preemptively surrendering, and (as soon as she thinks she's safe) unreasonably stubborn. And here, her magic is a minor point...well, it makes her the trigger for the problem, and makes Briar act to deal with it. And she does free herself as he's coming to get her. But it's very much Briar's book, with Evvy being the reasons for Briar's actions but not much of an actor (acter?) on her own.

Briar and Rosethorn are in a new city, and Briar finds a girl with stone magic in the marketplace. Now he must find her a teacher - whom she rejects, so he must teach her himself, and also protect her from a gang. This gang is currently being controlled by a twisted rich woman who is becoming way too involved with the gang's dealings.

This is an excellent book by Tamora Pierce, one of the few in which she has the man character as a male. The characters are extremely well-developed to the point that the reader feels as if (s)he has know them for the entirety of their lives. The writing style is perfect for the targeted audience (young adults). The plot line is filled with adventure. This is an excellent book.

Occasionally confusing phraseology, and Evvy is unbelievably flexible in moving from a post-slavery street-rat to docile and obedient mage-student. On the book as a whole, why go to the bother of inventing a fictional fantasy world if you just copy customs and costumes from the sort-of-real Arabia and China?
