Sandrilene fa Toren has moved to the palace of her uncle, Duke Vedris, to care for him after his recent heart attack. While the two are out riding, Sandry sees a boy named Pasco dance a magic spell. To her dismay she soon learns that since she discovered Pasco, she must handle his magical education until a proper teacher can be found. At 14, Sandry feels she is too young for this. Even worse, 12-year-old Pasco refuses to believe he even has magic. Light-footed and light-of-heart, he threatens to drive Sandry crazy.

But Sandry has greater worries than Pasco. Ruthless assassins are working to eliminate a local merchant clan, and as the grisly deaths mount, it becomes clear they are using a terrifying power called Un-magic. Even more unnerving, halting their reign of terror will require not only Sandry's magic, but Pasco's as well.

    " Sandry discovers a boy who can dance magic. I thought this was very creative and stoked my imagination. Her new student adds a lot of humor to the story. To top it off there is a really bad set fo villians. I always find it more satisfactory when they are defeated. Really good. "

    " Oh man, Sandry! She grew up so much in this book! I really liked the addition of Pasco and I really loved Sandry having to teach him and the epilogue? Perfect! I enjoyed this a lot a lot a lot! "

    " A very light YA story. None of the characters really gripped my interest but its decently written. Rather formulaic with the Medieval setting that dominates too much of Fantasy. Not a big fan of "Princess" characters either. "

    " Pierce delivers another book full of fantasy, finding yourself and danger. I was surprised at how fast the plot was advancing, but I had to remind myself that this quartet involves four different people's stories. "

    " The details of this book are not too clear; I remember being completely in love with the idea of dancing magic, and till now the idea still influences many of my creations. Enjoyable; the climax leaves a little to be desired, though. "

    " so far the book seems very interesting. its not like other magic book. except like all others the boy stumbles upon his powers when hes a teenager. classic but dull. an very confusing. if you read this book, listen to every detail. "
