For years, the Empress of Namorn has pressed her young cousin, Lady Sandrilene fa Toren, to visit her vast lands within the Empire's borders. Sandry has avoided the invitation for as long as it was possible. Now, Sandry has agreed to pay that overdue visit. Sandry's uncle promises guards to accompany her. But they're hardly a group of warriors! They're her old friends from Winding Circle: Daja, Tris, and Briar. Sandry hardly knows them now. They've grown up and grown apart. Sandry isn't sure they'll ever find their old connection again, or if she even wants them to.

Tamora Pierce returns to the world of Circle of Magic for this smashing novel, which brings the four young mages back together as teens.

    " I have to say this is one of those true-blooded-hard-core fantasy books. I loved it though. I like Pierce's writing style a lot. It flows extremely well and I couldn't put it down. I think I read it in 2 days. "

    " Pretty interesting... though the summery wasn't as good as the book, the plot is very much more interesting as you unfold the mysterious past "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Sebesta | 12/13/2013

    " Can't help it - I like reading about these characters "

    " One of my favorite series growing up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 11/24/2013

    " I haven't read the Circle of Magic series, but having read this, I'm interested. I think her books skew a little young, but it was enjoyable enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 10/2/2013

    " As with the previous two sets in this series I really thought this book was great. It was a nice way to put a conclusion on the adventures of the four "siblings" and show them more grown up and coming into the part of their powers that isn't just raw strength. What a great way to finish up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise Riley | 8/11/2013

    " I love everything tamora pierce does. amazing "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Merrimack Valley MS Reads Library | 3/18/2013

    " I enjoyed the strong female characters with their various 'gifts.' Not having read the previous ones,it was a little hard to catch up, but overall a fun, fantasy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendi | 12/7/2012

    " Best book by Tamora Pierce so far ... The characters from The Circle of Magic and The Circle Opens are growing up, becoming much more thornier and complex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianna winter | 10/1/2012

    " not bad but other series are better "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/16/2012

    " The four have grown up a lot, and you can really see that in this book. It was a slower read for me, I didn't like it as much, but at the end of the day, it was still the same four that I know and I love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 lisa | 5/4/2012

    " this was a nice return from the shorter circle opens books, but a lot of it felt rushed (this could have been two books, i think) and also there's a quote from briar that really hurt my feelings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catie | 4/23/2012

    " SO MANY FEELINGS. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mallory | 4/3/2011

    " Excellent! For a little while I missed little kid Sandry, Daja, Tris, and especially Briar, but I learned to love them all grown up. They stayed in character the whole time. The plot was a bit easy to see through, but I still loved it all the same! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leesie | 3/27/2011

    " was fun getting back together with Briar, Sandry and the gang. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/29/2011

    " I like that this book brought the four back together, but it made a couple of them whiny and unlikable (Daja in particular.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Waylajoy | 1/22/2011

    " Fun fantasy with neat kinds of magic and engaging characters. I like the feminist slant to Pierce's books (the Alanna series was a favorite of mine from childhood!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/21/2011

    " Very cool story. I read it before its predecessor's, the circle of magic series, and wanted more when I finished it. Different idea about how magic works and is born in people. "
