One of the best authors I have ever know, Tamora Pierce, is back again. In this novel, she continues a series of events that occur to four young mages, each with different powers. In the book before, Sandry weaves each of their powers together to make them stronger. Now, they are able to use their powers to overcome something none of them have seen before. If you like fantasy and friendship, this is definately a book that you should read.

I have read all of the CIRCLE OF MAGIC books. Out of all of them, this is definatly the best. in some of the other books, when something really magical is happening, it isn't very clear. But in this book, it is; and it's exciting all the way through. But you have to read the first one to like this one.i liked this book the most out of this series, then sandry's, then brairs, then daja's. they're all good though. I really like reading too. In school we have to keep track of the books we read, and i've read 28 during the school year. then i grabbed another sheet to keep track for this summer, and i've read 7 books since June 1st! Why, only this morning i finished the 6th book in the chronicles of narnia series. As queen of book worms, i hear-by give this book a 5-star rating.

This is one of her best books ever! I like magic and fighting, so of course I liked this, as this was one of the most exciting ever. My favorite part is when Tris uses the wind to press those boom-stones flat against the walls to prevent the Winding Circle from getting hit, or when she used lightning to explode another. This was one of my most favorite books, and Tamora Pierce is my most favorite author.

Simply this book deserves 7 stars. I've read them all. They are all good. This one was the best.

I think that this book was very well written. This book is great because you really get to know Tris and what she thinks. It is also real good because you can tell that the four really do become friends, even if they don't think they are. I just wish that she had written Sandry's book the same way she did this one, getting to know the character really well that is.

A great way to continue the series, and I hope everyone loves this book as much as me

Although I read the series out of the intended order, this was by far my favorite. Tris is such a complicated character with a lot of depth and feeling. Read this book. I highly reccomend it.

The second in the Circle of Magic series starts not long after Sandry's Book ends. The four young mages - Sandry, Tris, Daja, and Briar - continue to have lessons in the afternoons to develop their magic, but also begin to find ways that their magics have overlapped since their experience in the cave. Now, the protection of Winding Circle is threatened by an outside source, and the four will have to use all their ingenuity to save their new home.As I was talking about the books I've been reading with a couple of people today, I'm realizing that I'm reading these books right now for practically the same reason that I have not been rating them higher. Lately I've been in that late-winter funk that seems to be hitting so many people now, where I have not felt like reading several types of books that would appeal to me in a different mood, and can't really concentrate on something with too much depth. These books fit the bill by being short, typical of a genre I'm well-versed in, and not requiring much thought on my part. While not absolute brain candy, they are intended for a younger audience and do not get into intricacies of world-building or fleshed out secondary characters. The Full Cast Audio has been fun to listen to while running errands, though.

This book was more interesting than the first one in the series. There's more action as the mages fight to protect their home from a pirate attack. Still my least favorite Tamora Pierce series so far though.

Tris's book focuses on a pirate attack. It's quite a complicated plan that the pirates have, and of course, somehow the 4 from the Earthquake are the first to notice something is going on. A cunning pirate queen has united an armada of pirate ships, joined by her mage brother who enslaves other mages - with money and magic, and has created "gunpowder". With all of them working together, with a spy inside, they almost pull off their plan. The 4 are quick to jump in where they may or may not be needed, forcing their magic to work together and bleed together again.

Tris, Sandry, Daja, and Briar, the four young mages brought together in Sandry's Book, are still living - and learning - together and are closer than ever, to each other and to their teachers. What will they do when pirates attack their new home?Either the four of them trust each other implicitly, or they feel it's necessary to sneak around behind each other's backs. Which is it? There's confusion about that, and it weakens the plot. However, the overall story - of Tris learning to control her power and of the four of them learning how their combined magics make them stronger - is an interesting one, and the descriptions of Tris using her weather magic are really neat.

Tris is a teenage girl who has just moved from a complicated life to new home where she will be with three other children her age. Each of the children has a magic of some sort. In the first book the children have some issues but as they get to know each other they become good friends and settle into their life. Then trouble begins.I liked this book alright. Tris is not my favorite of the four so having it from her point of veiw was not so enjoyable. It is a good book. Well put together.

When pirates attack, Tris and her friends must combine their magical gifts to save their community. Still learning how to control their powers, the young mages must battle the pirates and their own inabilities.

I have always loved Tamora Pierce's books, and this one is no different. It is well written, the plot is good, as usual from her books there is great character development, and the female characters are not to be messed with! I can't wait to read the other books in this quartet and in the next!
