    " I love love love Briar, and I like Evvy too. I like that in these books Tammy plays with students of different ages - Pasco was 12, Evvy is 9 or 10, and later Tris teaches an adult. I actually don't totally love the plot, with the gangs and the bored noble lady, although if we'd gotten more of her motivations I might have been more into it. I like that Evvy was crucial to the climax, which based on the acknowledgments was a change from the first draft. I love Rosethorn, obvs. And I thought that Chammuri was totally interesting - so interesting that I didn't realize until after I read the next two that it's my least favorite of the three new cities! This is only because the next ones are even cooler. I can't wait to borrow Katie's audiobook of Melting Stones. "

    " this is a really good book. it talks about the the teaching of magic-how do you do it? it teaches young readers about the neccissity of discipline. "

    " Audiobook: it was okay. I got really tired of clothing descriptions, though. "

    " "Street Magic (The Circle Opens, Book 2) by Tamora Pierce (2002)" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 2/5/2014

    " Both Briar and his new apprentice are both great characters -- appealing, quick-witted and honorable but still occasionally inclined to mistakes. The plant and stone magic well developed and interesting. It is also fun to see Briar grown up and teaching, especially when he is teaching somebody as interesting as Evvy. I found the plot, however, a bit too weak and unbelievable to rate this book higher. All in all, a quick, fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann Carpenter | 1/31/2014

    " This is my least favorite of the Circle books, though I still like it. Briar is one of my favorite of the characters (though Tris holds the top spot) and I love Evvy. But the gang stuff just doesn't do it for me, neither the initial assumption that gangs are good, nor the final decision that they are not (which felt a bit forced to me.) The other books in this second series about the Circle are mysteries, and I much preferred them. There is no mystery here, which is a disappointment. I still enjoyed the book, though, as I have enjoyed just about everything Tamora Pierce writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Yardumian | 1/21/2014

    " I am really enjoying this foray into the talented Tamora Pierce's Magic Circle series. Although these book are YA, as a high school teacher, I spend more time with teens than with folks my own age, so the protagonists are as good company as I'll find anywhere! As usual, Ms Pierce has created a believeable world peopled with engaging and complex characters. This is my first time through this series, but I thinks it's a keeper! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/20/2014

    " Briar is on his own with Rosethorn and he comes into conflict with who he is. He has his old gang self and his new noble self. He must decide how the two can co exist side by side while trying to help his new friend find her own inner power. "

    " I kept reading these in hopes they would appeal to me more than they did, but they just didn't resonate with me like the Tortall series did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob Chreky | 12/30/2013

    " An amazing book I still can't believe I finished it in one sitting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine Ricci | 12/5/2013

    " These books just are not as great as the first series. I did not like how the four are now separated. I hope that Pierce will write a new series about the foursome coming together again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 11/28/2013

    " Really enjoyed it. As been so long since I read it that it Was like it was completely new to me. "

    " Rosethorn, Briar, and introducing...Evvy. Tamora Pierce has done it again :) "

    " Listened to the Full Cast Audio CD edition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/14/2013

    " Oh, this one is way better than the first Circle Opens book. Maybe because Briar is just a more entertaining character? And also for the garden scene at the end. That scene is amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nisa79 | 4/18/2013

    " This series just gets better and better by the book. The first few were a bit slow, but I read on because the characters are so great! Sandry, Briar and Evvy are my favorite. I think characterization is the reason why I love all of Tamora Pierce's books. She has a great talent for painting people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abraham | 12/26/2012

    " It was my most favorite series from the Circle Opens series. I loved everything about this book. I'm just in love with Briar. You will definitely definitely love this book, this story, and character. It had its moment of racing heartbeats and action. "

    " Briar is my absolute favorite character in the Emlan universe. I <3 Briar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Evvy is pretty cool too, like how she collapsed that wall, and how she compares Briar to a cat, which I can totally see! I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!! I LOVE TAMORA PIERCE!! "

    " Briar is a plant magician who grew up on the streets as a gang member. Now he takes a young girl off the streets, protects her form others woh would use her powers. I enjoyed his amazing magic with plants and especially the way he cares for others. He grows up a lot in this story. "

    " Briar is the focus of this book, and I love following his maturing relationship with Rosethorn, and his new student. Great suspense and action as he learns more about himself through his student, and more about his power and her as he becomes her teacher. A great series! "
