When pirates attack Winding Circle... Apr 1, 2007
Tris and her three friends, Briar, Sandry and Daja are still living at Disciplin Cottage located inside winding circle with their teachers, Frostpine, Niko, Lark and Rosethorn. Learning their studies quite well...but when Winding Circle is damaged by an earthquake they're left open for a pirate attack. And considering how they're left wide open pirates take advantage and attack winding circle's walls. With this everyone in winding circle is helping to rid of the pirates. And this includes Tris, Briar, Daja and Sandry. But please, don't get Tris angry...she'll blow her top.
I enjoyed this book very much and finished it in a day. It's excited, adventurous and even funny enough to keep you hooked. The four mages are lovable characters and they seem like old friends every time I read a book from the Circle of Magic quartet. Hope you read this book and all the others in the series!
Don't mess with Tris... Jan 1, 2007
At Winding Circle trouble rises when pirates attack there home. The four apprentices Tris with weather powers, Sandry the stitch witch, Briar who can controle plants, and Daja the smith mage desperetley want to help the other mages defend Winding Circle but of course they're only ten so they are told to stay out of trouble for fear of them getting hurt. The four must help and they disobey the rules and help. Can they save the day? Or will they just end up getting hurt or worse...killed?
TRIS'S BOOK is fun for all of you and anybody that enjoys fantasy and magic would adore this novel. But you should read the first book of the quartet, SANDRY'S BOOK before reading this one. Read this book because you won't want to put it down. -Hannah M.
Great Review by a young adult reader Jun 17, 2006
Well, the way I discovered Tamora Pierce's book 'The Circle of Magic; Tris' book' was by going into the library at my school. I was really looking for my friends and searched the library (probably making a lot of noise as the librarian kept scowling at me) I was about to leave, when I saw her get up towards me. I panicked so I quickly ducked behind a shelf to hide, as well as knocking off several books. I picked them up and the last one to put back was 'Tris' Book'which caught my eye and so I quickly read the first page, so far ao good! It was just the kind of book a girl like me likes, as well as a few boys, it was also about magic which would annoy my dad so I thought that I might as well take it out, the librarian had already gone off somewhere so I was in the clear. When I got back to my class, without the librarian biting my head off, I got back to reading it. It only seemed like a minute after I had lost myself into the first two chapters, and it was a fabulous book! I would recommend it to everyone and anyone. It was so great, I even failed my small Latin test. I was so into the story and plot, that I didn't even care! The book is amazing! It's like Tamora Pierce hipnotizes you, so that you keep reading and find yourself tied into the characters lives! All I can say after I finished it is buy/borrow it while I re-read this magical fantasy again and again!!!
fun book Feb 24, 2006
Tris' book written by Tamora Pierce is a very suspenseful book filled with lots of action. Set in medieval times, this book really draws you into this time period; it is the second addition to a group of four books that are all wonderful to read. Tris' book is a great book for anyone if you are just looking for a fun, fast book to read. Also, it does not contain any great vocabulary problems so younger kids will not have trouble.
Still trying to dig its self out of a recent earthquake, Winding Circle finds that it is once again faced with catastrophe; pirates learning of the recent earthquake have come to discover how they can take advantage of the situation. Infuriated at the pirates for trying to take away the one true home she has ever had, Trisana Chandler rebels in the only way she knows how. As the friendships with her three other mage friends deepens and Tris' emotional scars begin to heal, she is faced with the fact that another blow is about to hit close to home, a betrayer is in their midst. Trisana must learn how to not only to rely on her powers but to deepen her faith in the three that she has come to live with to have any hope of keeping her home.
"You Upset Her When She's Already Frightened..." Apr 5, 2005
This volume is the second in a four-part series called "Circle of Magic" and is also titled "The Power in the Storm". Set in a fantasy realm over a one-year period, Tamora Pierce tells the story of four young mages who are brought together to live at the temple community of Winding Circle, to control and properly use their various powers.
The children couldn't be more different, but their studies bring them closer together till they are bonded magically (unbeknown to their four mentors), each sharing in the other's unique magic. Pierce claims that her inspiration comes from the olde-world handicrafts that are dying from our own world, such as weaving and metalcraft. Such things are channelled through into the mage's powers, with the exception of Tris who is a 'weather witch' and can hear voices on the wind.
Summersea is still recovering from the earthquake of the previous book, but the damage done to the harbour defences mean that Winding Circle is vulnerable to pirates. The children at Disciple Cottage are called upon to help strengthen the damaged buildings, and it is then that the pirates appear on the seas - and they have their eyes fixed on the riches of the temple. Once again, it comes down the children to rescue their beloved home - which isn't easy considering their is a betrayer in their midst...
The tension and claustrophobia of the temple is vividly created, and the pain that the pirates caused heartbreaking. Most of the action concerns the mages and their teachers preparing the defences, though I have to say that when the climactic moment comes, it's over rather quickly. The turncoat within Winding Circle is obvious, and the subplot involving Tris caring for a baby bird is interesting, but a little needless.
However, the human element is something that Pierce is great at capturing and she does so here extremely well. Tris is a wonderful character, and perhaps the most vivid and interesting of all four of the children. Plump, with glasses, red frizzy hair and a bad temper, this bookworm has a prickly personality that often puts her at odds with most people, and she infinitely prefers a book to human company. Estranged from her unloving family, she is only now beginning to open up to the feelings of human affection. But it doesn't help that the weather churns up whenever she looses her temper.
Each book also explore one of the friendships between the four, and this one mostly concerns Briar and Tris. The fact that such opposites, from such different walks of life can become friends is immensely touching. The other two children have segments of the book dedicated to them, and the bond between all of them is deep and realistic.
Not the best Pierce has to offer, and yet still a pleasant read with Pierce's ability to create the shades of grey in what could easily be a black and white novel.
