The final book in an extraordinary new fantasy quartet by New York Times bestselling author Tamora Pierce.

Kethlun Warder was a gifted glassmaker until his world was shattered in a freak accident. Now his remaining glass magic is mixed with lightning, and Tris must teach him to control it (if she can teach him to control his temper first). But there's more at stake than Keth's education. With his strange magic, he creates glass balls that reflect the immediate past and expose the work of a murderer. If he can harness his power properly, he'll be able to see the crimes as they take place. Keth and Tris race against time, and the local authorities, to identify a killer who's living in plain sight.

TAMORA PIERCE is the critically acclaimed author of more than twenty novels, including the Circle of Magic and The Circle Opens quartets, The Will of the Empress, Melting Stones, and, most recently, the New York Times bestselling Beka Cooper trilogy. She lives in New York State with her husband, Tim, and her seven cats and two birds. V...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of the Circle Opens I was a little disappointed with the Circle Opens series until this book, it's my favourite of the 4. Tris was not my favourite reading the original series but she becomes much more fleshed out in this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never was a fan of Tris.. Her personality always seemed more prickly than Rosethorn's for me, but once I saw her level of compassion and faith in this book... damn, I think I could learn to like Tris. Definitely not my favorite of our circle mages(Briar and Daja <3) but I can respect her more, as she came across very merchantly brat like, even as the other books lead on. But I do appreciate her teachings & her way of doing things with Kethlun, and definitely with Glaki. Even her way of managing Niko is funny to me, but overall enjoyable - can't wait to read more of their adventures in the next books to be honest!

Editorial Reviews

“In lively prose laced with wry humor, Pierce creates realistic, dimensional characters--Tris is spunky, independent, and thoroughly likable--and places them in exotic, imaginatively detailed locales. . . . There's plenty of suspense, as well as a social commentary simmering beneath the surface of the story (the human rights of the lower classes are being ignored by the city in an effort to maintain its beautiful facade). Like previous books in the Circle Opens Quartet, this one is an engaging blend of mystery, magic, and timeless social themes. It will stand well on its own, and it's also sure to satisfy Pierce's many fans.” -- Booklist, March 1st, 2003“ In a series with so many predetermined factors, Pierce injects enough twists to keep the franchise fresh.” -- Horn Book
