Good book Jul 26, 2006
In the second book of the Circle Opens quartet, 14-year-old Winding Circle temple resident Briar Moss and his teacher Rosethorn take a trip east to the city of Chammur. Wandering through a market place, Briar finds a street girl who is using powerful magic to polish stones. He decides to find her a teacher. But when gang warfare breaks out, he learns that the fiercest gang is looking for a stone mage to help them find hidden treasures, and he might be the only protection Evvy will get. When Briar hears that the enemy gang has a benefactor he knows that to stop the war he must stop the benefactor. Then Briar learns that the benefactor is also a murderer, he realizes that the fate of Chammurs gangs might rest in his hands. Exciting and entertaining, this is a perfect book for 5th-8th graders.
major Tamora Pierce fan Feb 21, 2006
I loved this book. Briar is my favorite charecter, so maybe that's why I loved this book so much. Unlike SOME people, I am not going to give away the ending and stuff. Briar, after training as a mage for 4 years, is traveling with his teacher, Rosethorn. while he is traveling, he meets Evvy,a girl who is apparently a stone mage. He must teach her how to controll her magic and avoid other gangs so he can live. A rich lady decides to kidnap Evvy, and Briar gets mad... Anyways this is totally my favorite book that Ms.pierce has written.
Another fine piece of work! Aug 27, 2005
This is a great addition to the Circle series. I can't wait to see what she does in the next one!
Perhaps Tamora's best book Aug 19, 2005
I truely enjoyed this Tamora Pierce book best. Many people don't like the fact that (dramatic pause) she's actually writing about a male main chaceter. Well, she does it a he*l of a lot better then when she writes about girls.
This book doesn't soften any cruelty or meanness, and not everything works out Okey dokey in the end. There is a little bit of violence, but nothing overly diturbing.
And, I mainly just like Briar's chaceter best. He is more realistic then the rest of her quartet. Plus she doesn't muck up the entire book with romance. There's a little flirting, but you can't espect more from Tamora Pierce.
I don't cheat, i just lie. -something my friend should never have told the science teacher.
