I have not read this book of ever even heard of it, however if it is Daja's book it is very good. Im just hoping to alert Amazon that they should say if it is a retitled version of Daja's Book, because this is very confusing

After Winding Circle got rid of the pirates, the four young mages, their teachers, and Duke Vedris (Sandry's uncle), are headed to Gold Ridge. A drought in this part of the country has caused many problems, and grassfires are now burning constantly. While they are there, Daja has been assigned to make nails. However, something goes wrong and she accidentally creates a magical iron vine that grows just like a normal plant. Upon seeing such a creation, one of the Traders wants to buy it off Daja, yet this Trader refuses to speak to Daja because she is Trangshi. During her encounters with Traders at Gold Ridge, Daja starts to yearn for the life she used to have. Finally, she is given a choice: she must either return to Winding Circle with her "new" family, or stay with the Traders.
This book is a very good read and definitely has a lot of action going on. However, I didn't like it as much as Tris's Book because I found some passages about magic confusing. Overall though, I think it is a great read and we get to know more about each character's personality, especially the teachers.

I love this book. It is not as good as the Tortallan books, but I think that in that area they are the best. People who love to read will find themselves reading it over and over, and people who hate reading will suprise themselves by getting lost in the book. It is a crime not to read it. I also suggest that you read the tortallan books. They are wonderful beyond beleif! :D

This is my first book from this author, and I don't know why, but I just didn't like it. I thought that there really wasn't a good "struggle" in this book, the writing was not as descriptive as other authors' writing, and the characters did not seem as developed. Just an opinion.

In Daja's book, forest fires threaten them all. Daja learns how to make a new kind of metal called living metal. She meets a Trader for the first time after she became a tragshi. This meeting makes her realize just how much of an outcast she is ever since her family drowned. The Traders offer a high price for her to sell them living metal. She decides to sell it to them. When the Traders are trapped by a forest fire, Daja saves them, even though they treated her unfairly. Daja learns to make living metal and realizes who her real family is.

There is a severe forest fire, and there are only a few who can help save the people from the fire and the drought..
As Daja Kisubo, trangshi of the Traders, is working with metal, a stranger enters the forge. This stranger is a Trader. When she discovered that Daja is a trangshi - an outcast - she acts as if she is not there. Anger at her unfair treatment, though it was expected, cause Daja to throw her emotions into bars of metal, which created a living vine, made purely from metal. When the caravan of Traders wish to buy the vine, one must be able to speak to her. The bargaining continues as Daja and her three friends try to stop the forest fire, and the drought. But the forest fire spreads as the caravan is leaving. Will Daja be able to save the Traders?

This really is shaping up to become a great series! Definitelly improving over the last two as far as plot and exciting things going on, this one also builds on each of the characters, while Daja takes center stage. This book picks up with the four kids (with their respective teachers) on a journey to Goldridge Valley, where severe drought has caused rampant wildfires and many other problems. While practicing her metelwork, Daja (with accidental help from Sandry, Tris, and Briar) creates a bizarre vine, made of 'living metel' that only pure magic can shape properly. Daja's former people, the Traders, try to buy it from her, even though now they consider her Trangshi, a person so full of bad luck that no decent person can ever speak to her or deal with her. Even so, being around them again reminds Daja of the family she lost, and makes her long for the way things used to be, and soon she'll have to make a choice; return with the Traders and give up the metelworking she loves, or remain with her beloved teacher and friends, and dispare of ever being a true Trader again. Anyway, this book has charm, humour, warmth, and excitement. For anyone looking for a great fantasy read, this book is the answer.
