    I loved this series when I was 11 or so. The series went on hiatus for a few years while it changed publishers and all the books were rereleased one by one - have you seen the old covers? *shudder* - so it's been many years since I've even thought about the books. However, now that the last two books have been published for the first time under the new company, I've decided to read the books again so that I can finally see how the series ends! (Thus completing my childhood. Yesss.)Avalon: Web of Magic originally consisted of the first 6 books, the ones after that being Quest for Magic, as those books follow a bit of a different storyline. It might not faze new readers, though.Having just reread this, I find myself wondering why I thought the book was so amazing in the first place. It's a bit cheesy, and the writing is not spectacular. Also, there are some typos which I hope have been fixed in the "revised" second edition books.On the other hand, it's definitely a children's series, so a lot of that can be forgiven. It's a fun story that really emphasizes the importance of animals in the world and our relationship with them. It may say something on the back about how "friendship is everything," but I think the animal message is stressed a bit more.Fun, quick read. A good fantasy series for the younger reader (I'd say ages 8+).

    10/10I first read this wonderful book 5 years ago, and it is still my absolute favorite series ever! This is a very fun and entertaining fantasy series, and after only reading this book I got pretty obsessed with it. A great thing about this book is that it is one of those that is really great for all ages. Young children will like it, teenagers will like it, and adults will like it. I made my dad read these books, he hates reading and even he liked these! I can't wait until the movie comes out next year, I've been waiting for it FOREVER!So this book is about a pretty normal girl named Emily Fletcher, who loves animals. She has just moved to a town called Stonehill, Pennsylvania, where there is a wildlife preserve. She meets a girl named Adriane, who is known for being the weird girl nobody likes, and a very hungry ferret named Ozzie who is actually an elf. They become friends and find out that they are mages and have to find Avalon, the home of all magic. There is also another girl named Kara, who doesn't actually become a mage in this book, who is the popular blond one that they both are very annoyed by, but then they all become friends. I'd go into more detail but then this review would be way to long. Overall, it is an amazing start to a great series.

    Avalon Web of Magic is a great book series. I remember reading the very first edition of the book Circles in The Stream but the cover art was so . . . strange looking I was embarrassed to read the book in public. When the new copy was released at my school book fair, I bought it. All through the years, this book series has really grown on me because they're so awesome! :) Mini Summary: Emily has just moved with her single mom from Colorado to Stonehill, Pennsylvania. There, she meets a strange girl who finds a terribly burned cat near the Ravenswood Wildlife Preserve. The next day as Emily is walking the dogs, they get away from her and run into the woods! Without thinking Emily dashes after them and discovers Ravenswood. Not to mention some strange magic . . . Afterwards, Emily is thrust into a new light when she meets Adriane Charday after freeing a talking ferret named Ozymandias. Emily's life will never be the same as she soon discovers her destiny is intertwined with magic and fairy tales and ... Adriane and the snobby mayor's daughter Kara.:] Read all twelve, they're really good! Plus, Rachel Roberts is coming out with two new series, Shadow Warrior and Sky Rider!Paste this link to visit the Avalon website:

    My daughter is really into animals and fantastical creatures. I honestly bought the first 3 books in the series purely for the cover art. It is gorgeous. In this particular case, you CAN judge a book by it's cover. My daughter loved them so much that she insisted I read them too. I would have to say so far I have enjoyed these books just as much as she has. I recommend them to anyone with a daughter that loves a good book. 12 books in the series.

    This is a five star for me not because it's the most fantastical piece of literature I've ever read but because back-in-the-day this was one of my favourite series. I could barely contain myself in between books.I never finished the series because of the long hiatus and my interest kind of wandered away. BUT, it still holds a very speculz place in ma <3

    This. Book. Is. Amazing.There are simply no exact words to describe this story--but I might go with wonderful, enchanting, magical, and beautiful. Miss Rachel Roberts did a great job of outlining the plot but hiding enough secrets to make the readers intrigued--and describing the characters and differentiating them and their unique characteristics that make them, them.We have three twelve-year old girls: Emily, Adriane, and Kara. Emily's personality is typical--she's the shy, new girl in town, but she would do anything and everything to help an animal friend in need. Adriane is the more dark and stormy type, and she snaps at Emily at first, but they two have one outstanding similarity: protecting the animals, especially the rare and magical ones we find in the Ravenswood Natural Preserve, where Adriane and her grandmother lives.And lastly, we have Kara, the mayor's daughter; an arrogant, spoiled girl that would have anything she asks her father to get. Kara and Adriane, coming from two different worlds, obviously get off the wrong foot, and are more tend to squabble than Emily, who always becomes the peacemaker between the two of them. But when a plague affecting the magical creatures in the wood beckon them for help, the three girls find out their true destinies and what they were always meant to be: the healer, the warrior, and the blazing star. Eventually, they put aside their differences and become friends.

    I'm conflicted on how to rate this book. On one hand, I loved this series as a kid (the first six books anyway; I wasn't aware there were more) but on the other hand I didn't particularly enjoy reading it as an adult.While it easy to give this five stars based on how much I adored this series as a kid, I have ultimately decided to rate it based on my experience reading it as a fully grown adult. Anything higher than three stars would be purely based on nostalgia rather than my actual reading experience this time around.I do love the themes - animal welfare, friendship, loyalty - but I didn't really enjoy the writing or the characters. But then again, this book wasn't written for a twenty-three year old in mind, so any complaints I have are fairly irrelevant, aren't they?I've decided that I won't continue on with the rest of the books - they can remain untouched by my critical adult eyes!

    This book made me think about reading more Fariy Tales.But this isn't a ordinary Fariy Tale its one of those book when you don't or don't know what to decide to know that person.And furthermore this book is about a main girl name Emily which has moved in a town.She works with her mom and found herself in a zone of magical cat.And in the part of taking care of the cat she met a girl named Adriane she's a ousider which lives in the Avalon woods, and discover Emily while she went in a peek in the woods.(she was'nt allowed beacuse there was rumors that it was haunted) Then another girl name Kara a popular and spoiled person which met by Emily and Adriane jewlry that was rude when she let them go hunt for more, but made it interesting.And lastly my final thought is that I like reading this book when it ends up has friendship and I loved this book so badly i want to read the second one.And pluse its magic which makes me wonder whats happening next..... yes the book:).

    Emily ever sense she was a kid never belived in magic. But all that changed when she met a strange girl named Adriane, a talking ferret, and a wolf that can turn into mist. What was going on?Then she dicovered a forest filled with strange animals like those everywhere. She then found out the forest was going to be chopped down because the government didn't know of the magical creatures. I liked Avalon by Rachel Roberts because of all the magic and twists in this suspenseful book. This book is good for girls 8 years old and older. This book is filled with mystery and action, I could not put it down.

    When I was in the fifth or sixth grade, I remember reading this book. I picked it up in my schools book fair and really liked the cover. I also thought it had a lot of potential. When I read it, I remember liking it, but that is all. It isn't the most memorable book. I reread it recently just to refresh my memory (I read it in about three hours total) and I think it is a good story line, just not for people over the age of about eleven. In all, it's a good book and I enjoyed it but it is definitely for younger readers.

    01-21I love Emily already, she has the life I've always imagined my own kids living: surrounded by animals everywhere you turn. She is very caring of them, especially the margay/ocelot type thing (Well, I'll let you know when I find out what it is and what attacked it).01-22 Less than 24 hours and I have finished the book. I love Ariel, the snowy owl that bonded with Emily. Storm is pretty cool too, and Ozzie even though technically he's not an animal is awesome.

    This was my first ever series that i read and kept. I have all 12 or 13. I have a rather large 'library' now and i love just looking at my lovely Avalon books. It was so amazing. Sadly book 4 got ruined by my little brother so now I'm looking for a new one. I just can't bring myself to throw the ruined one away though. This is such a heart warming, true friendship, and fantasy series. It is just so good, I would get called out in class and get in trouble for reading this.

    Reading this book is like eating ice cream. It's light yet delightful. It's tasty whenever and wherever you enjoy it. Before you realize it, you already finish it, and you're craving for more ^^~I personally love the illustrations in the book; they are adorable. This fantasy-adventure book is probably more fitting for girls rather than boys because the main characters are girls.

    I read this when I was very, very young. It was the first book series I really read all by myself; it was the first book series where I took the book I was reading EVERYWHERE with me; it was the first book series that I cried (sobbed) over when I finished the very last one. Needless to say, I have a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in this series and in this book.Now, I have not read this book again as an adult—partly because I have a lot of college work to do and therefore don't have the time, but also partly because I don't want to read it and not like it as much now as I did then. Even though I know it won't be as amazing as I first found it because it is a series for young people (tweens, I'd say). For the review, I'd say this: thinking back now, the three main characters—Emily, Adriane, and Kara—were all very different and therefore a reader could find someone to relate to. I think I got pulled in because the book opened with Emily, and I related to her most. I also liked this so much because there were so many things that I loved at the time I first read it: fairies, magic, gemstones (I love(d) rocks), magical animals.I'm very biased towards this book and this series because this series contributed to (along with Harry Potter) my love of reading and my desire to be an author—which I still want to be now, a whole decade later.

    With the help of Ozzie Emily, Kara and Adriane, the three mages go on a long journey to save Ravenwood wildlife preserve and Aldenmor from the Black Fire, and to find the meaning of Avalon. The Black Fire is a destructive poison which the Dark sorceress has cast upon the creatures of Aldenmor. Emily, Kara and Adriane are the only ones that can save the creatures from total destruction. To start their journey, each of them found a stone with special properties. Will they put their stones to use and stop Ravenswood and Aldenmor from harm? Or will the Black Fire take over and kill all the helpless animals?This book Circles in the Stream, was in my opinion a breathtaking story. It is mostly directed at people who enjoy fantasy, because in the book there are many different creatures. Most are good but some are evil, such as the Mistwolf, a take on the wolf but with the ability to turn into mist/fog, which makes them practically invisible. Even one of the main characters are a magical creature, Ozzie. Ozzie is an elf who came through the Aldenmor portal in search of the three mages to save his realm. Ozzie transformed into an Ferret when he came through the portal, which was kind of a surprise. Also I think this book is fantasy-based because it involved magic and different realms, such as when Emily and Phel healed some of the animals that got injured by the Black Fire, and the realm of Aldenmor which is full of many magical animals. This book is aimed for 12 to 15 year olds because it can get childish sometime, for instance calling Kara the “power shopper”. Circles in the Stream is an incredible book, with a make-believe storyline that involves different creatures and world jumping. Intended for the early teen years, I definitely recommend reading this book if you are of that age group.

    Bea, age 13, writes: Meh -- This book wasn't my favorite. Kara was SUPER annoying I had no sympathy for her, and I wished the black fire would get her the whole time, Adriane drove me crazy by constantly arguing with Kara, and I didn't like how they were constantly calling each-other names. And Phel, despite healing animals, didn't seem that helpful. If he's magic can't he escape the "muggle" warehouse or run from the hunters rather than sitting there and making the girls PICK HIM UP AND THROW HIM DOWN A HILL. Seriously, Phel. Other than that the book was good, it didn't have sentence fragments that I was aware of and at least the characters had personalities! I liked the start with the magic cat, and the stuffed animals because I love stuffed animals and it made me like Emily more. (Emily is my favorite character.)

    The book series that fanned the flames of my writing & reading passion! Rachel Roberts' debut novel does an excellent job in utilizing creativity and presenting inspiring characters, and the message about finding the magic within yourself is so encouraging. The positive and relatable themes as a whole would make this series suitable for girls 12 and younger. After all, that IS the age the main characters begin this journey. I just wish this series wasn't so underrated! Even though it's been nearly 10 years since I first bought this at a scholastic book sale in my grade school's multi-purpose room, this book--and the rest of the series--will always have a special place in my heart.

    I LOVE this book! It's all about fantasy, friendship and animals! I really enjoy this book.SUMMARYEmily Fletcher goes into the Ravenswood forest, just expecting to get her dogs out, but she finds much more. She finds a magic jewel, a little ferret, and Adriane Charday, a strange girl who has a jewel like her's. They find beautiful things in the forest, fantastical creatures, glowing jewels and a portal to another world. Along the way they meet Kara Davies, the snob and popular one. Through out towards the end, they realise why these fantastical creatures are not in their dimension..

Contrairement à beaucoup de séries qui visent les plus jeunes, celle-ci est vraiment intéressante et l'auteure ne prend pas ses lecteurs pour de gros bêtas. Elle explique avec des mots simples mais efficaces et surtout, elle a créé des personnages et une intrigue intéressants et prenants !"Chronique complète:

    I read this book when I was a kid and I love it :) Keep in mind it is a childrens book, but for what it is it's really great. This book in a way actually shaped me into who I am today a bit lol it's kinda funny, looking back. This was the first fantasy sort of book I ever read. This was the book that made me want to be a vet too lol I enjoyed the little funny moments and how certain characters act. This book is all about the love of animals, imagination, fantasy, magic, and scify.

    I think these books are perfect for any middle-schooler who loves magic and animals. Just like I did and honestly still do. I absolutely adored these books when I was in middle school. Every time I finished when I went back to the city library who reserved and requested them from other libraries for me. These books were a basis for my love of libraries.

    I read this series back when I was 11 or so, and I just remember really loving it. Except the original series was only 6 books by Shelly Roberts and the colors of the covers were very vibrant.
