Grade 5-10?Tris and her three fellow mages-in-training have barely survived an earthquake that hit Winding Circle Temple. Now pirates are threatening to destroy the only real home the young sorcerers have ever known. As in Sandry's Book (Scholastic, 1997), the first installment in the series, the companions realize they can save themselves and their community only by combining powers and becoming one force greater than the sum of its parts. Reminiscent of Virginia Hamilton's Justice and Her Brothers (Harcourt, 1989), but without the rivalry and menace within the four-person "unit," Tris's Book focuses instead on the growing friendship among the young mages and their realization that their magical connections are beginning to seep into other facets of their lives. Individually, the mages are also struggling to control their powers, which come on in overwhelming surges when their possessors feel strong emotions. Readers on the brink of adolescence, struggling with new feelings and abilities, will appreciate the young sorcerers' efforts. Pierce has created another gripping adventure that's sure to please her many fans.?Beth Wright, Edythe Dyer Community Library, Hampden, ME

Gr. 6^-9. Sometimes when the first volume in a series is exciting and readable and has interesting characters (each of whom will be featured in a separate book) and an intriguing premise, you wonder if the author will be able to sustain the momentum. That's certainly not a problem with this book, the second in Pierce's Circle of Magic series. It's just as dramatic and engaging as Sandry's Book. The four young mages introduced in Sandry's story continue to learn how powerful they are when they meld their talents. In this adventure, it falls to Tris, the weather mage, to harness her temper and magic to save her friends and the Winding Circle community from marauding pirates who are employing their own deadly magic. Pierce skillfully develops her secondary characters while allowing Tris to take center stage, and smoothly advances the plot. A cut above many fantasies for the age group.

I love this, and it's not even my favorite from COM. I think Tris is the character that intrigues me the most, although I could never have a favorite from among the four. Read morePublished on June 7 2003 by Camilla Kaplan
