Book Description

Sept. 1 1999 Circle of Magic (Book 2)
Four elements of power. Four children to control them. Four books of magic, adventure, and fantasy. Enter acclaimed author Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic.

In Book 2 of the Circle of Magic Quartet, earthquake damage has left Winding Circle vulnerable to pirate attack and Tris, Briar, Daja, and Sandry are working with the community to strengthen their defenses. When the pirate onslaught begins, two things become terribly clear: The pirates have a powerful new weapon — and they have an accomplice within Winding Circle. But they've failed to anticipate the fury of a young mage who has been betrayed once too often, and who has very stubborn, very loyal friends . . .

Product Description

From School Library Journal

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

From Booklist

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent follow up! June 25 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you thought Sandry's Book was good, you'll love Tris's Book! If anything, it's far better than the first one, with a lot more stuff happening, and the characters well fleshed out. Still, if it's an action filled fantasy thriller you're looking for, you won't find it here. This is a mainly character driven story without a lot of different things going on at once. Anyway, pirates have begun attacking Winding Circle in the aftermath of the devestating earthquake, while Tris's cousin Aymery appears, with a message from the family who rejected and ignored Tris, begging her to return to the side of her dying father. I won't say anything else to avoid spoiling the story, but trust me, this is a great book, good for kids of all ages, particularly the 9 to 12 age range. Older kids may feel a bit cheated reading a book about a bunch of ten year olds, but the author's skill got me over it quickly and I urge any fan of Tamora Pierce, young or old, to give this series a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book April 8 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Tris' Book is a book about a girl, who has recently discovered that she has powerful mage power, and her 3 close friends. They live at the Winding Circle Temple, which has recently received damage from an Earthquake. Unsettling things begin to happen, and it becomes clear that something is amiss and danger threatens Winding Circle. The danger comes in the form of Pirates, who are taking advantage of Winding Circle's wounded state. A cousin from the Family that cast Tris out shows up, and advises her to return home, but Tris is fiercly determined to fight for and protect the only place that she has ever felt at home, with her equally powerful friends right beside her.
This book has more action than the first book in the Circle of Magic series, and the ending, in my opinion, is more satisfying. This book allows more exploration of the characters, because introductions do not need to be made, allowing for a greater story line. It is definitely worth your while to read, I quite enjoyed it. I would give it about a 4 and one half star rating, but there is no half so I am giving it 4.

This book I would have to say was my favorite of all of them. It had lots of action and emotion, Though I do not read alot of books I read this series and can't wait to read more.
This book is about four kids (Sandry, Tris, Daja, and Briar)who's magic blede into each others after Sadry had combind them in an Earth quake. They now shared some abilities with one another. They now had a great adventure that lyes ahead that has death, Pirets and a new wepon. They work together to save their new home from the Pirets and the new wepon.

By Raven
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An exceptional work, Tris's Book will capture your interest at once- it did mine. The hard-hearted Trisana lights up a bit and truly comes through for her friends- and enemies. Very nice, worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars adventuorus~ you really get into it. Jan. 17 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is about a mage named tris. shes a weather witch who lives at winding circle temple. she also happens to live with two other girls, daja and sandrilene and a boy named briar.
In this book she seems less like a snob and more like a pesron who you could learn alot from. in this book they end up starting off in a humid summer cranky and still unsure of their magical powers.from the verry beginning i think tris knew that something was wrong but inside she just didnt want to believe cause she was scared i mean hey if i was 12 and i was being attacked by pirats heck id be scared to wouldnt you? but this book is really worth your while, its a journey in the eyes of a 12 yr old mage who is getting hit hard with the realities of the "REAL world" . but in the end guess who gets the best of it? youll have to read to find out. hope this helps you out a little bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great continuation! June 3 2004
By Amanda
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this book was even better than the last one! This book is mostly centered on Tris, the weather witch (hence the title). When pirates attack Winding Circle, the four children are very scared. The pirates definitely have an advantage, and things get quite dangerous. This book definitely has a darker air to it, but it also contains more action and a greater understand of Winding Circle and the young mages' magic.
Overall, I think this book is excellent, and even though I had some doubts about this series after reading Sandry's Circle, they have now vanished. I hope Daja's Book will be as good as, if not more, then Tris's Book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tris's Book Sept. 25 2003
By Jessica
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Tris's book is the second book in the Circle of Magic series. In this book, a powerful earthquake has destroy parts of the Winding Circle's defenses. Although pirates have not dared attack it for years, they can't help but take advantage of its vunerability. The pirates are led by the pirate queen, Pahua, and her mage brother Enahar. The four young mages, Sandry, Tris, Briar, and Daja, are some of those to witness the pirate new and dangerous weapons--boomstones. These stones can explode a large amount of land and kill hundreds of people. All four mages must use their magics to protect the Winding Circle from invasion. Tris also dicovers what she needs most--control over her powers.
