    After seeing the author at Chessiecon, I had an urge to re-read some of her books. I actual read the separate editions but they're so short, I didn't want to count them as four books in my total so I'm writing up the combined version. The first book starts out slow as the kid characters start off in jeopardy, then are rescued by Nico the mage, and then the Winding Circle is introduced. It is good that there is some tension between the four with their different background especially as one is a thief, one a noble, one a trader who don't have a history of getting along. Sandry is a little too good to be true, although a Noble, she likes getting along with ordinary people. The second book, Tris' Book, is much better with real jeopardy for the kids, treachery (although a bit obvious that the traitor character was up to no good, even one of the kids suspects the character) and a rather spectacular bit of magic.I'm inclined to characterize this series as a bit more of a children's series (rather than YA) than her other writing.

    I read the first book of the two: Sandry's story. It was dissapointing in just how little actually happened. And if I hadn't just read to learn that the book was intended to be "Sandry"s I never would have guessed from the fairly even amount of "screen" time. I did enjoy the diversity of the characters and would hope they progressed a bit in the next book but that half will have to come another time I think.

    I picked up this book at a book sale because I heard so much about this author...and I guess I can see where she would be good if you were maybe 9. But oh my god. The plot holes. THE PLOT HOLES! And she is apparently only capable of developing one character, and one character only. Never mind the fact that this was suppose to be two books - one about Sandry, and one about Tris - she can only develop Tris into anything other then a background character.

    The 4 books in The Circle of Magic and the 4 in The Circle Opens are written for younger children in mind--no sex, etc. But The Circle Opens books plots are for more 'mature' readers--serial killers, etc. They do not contain the more innocent themes of The Circle of Magic, which younger readers would really love.

    The first half of the book, Sandry's Book, is pretty boring and is all set up until the end, when there's suddenly a plot. The second half, Tris's Book, is where the series really takes off and starts developing the characters an their magic well. I think Book 2 is probably the best in the first quartet. The bonus story in the back is really good too! I enjoyed it very much.

    I love Tamora Pierce's books. Every book has strong female heroines which is why I bought the full set for my niece, who loves them too. I strongly suggest this and all her other books to fantasy loving females young and old!!

    An imaginative read. I enjoyed the characters a lot and will read other books in this series. The last 1/5th of the book I did get a little lost. Maybe, I just wasn't paying attention enough. Very enjoyable.

    These books were a little slow paced, but they are juvenile books. I think I would have loved them when I was younger. Still, I did like them. Every child who has been outcast in one way or another looks for a place to belong, even dreaming that one day they will be someone important.

    Written for a younger reader, but still a lot of fun.

    I am working my way back through this series to decide if I want to push them on my oldest niece, and I am thoroughly enjoying my time with these books.

    I can't believe I'd never heard of this book before I read it. I would definitely recommend this at work.

    Kind of innocent compared to current YA fantasy, which makes me all the more fond of it.
