Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plants and Stones In the 2nd series of the Circle mages, we see Briar - a student of the famed Rosethorn, receive his own pupil. She is a ragtag street girl like himself, with a startling power over stones make and an impressivle collections of ally cats. Evvy and Briar a solid team. One of my favorites, I found this book to be highly entertaining, in a typical Peirceian world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Magic for Teen Fantasy This book really is well written. I believe it is adventurous to write this complex of a fantasy novel for such a realistic age group but I believe it has been embrassed well. The author really shows the meaning of qualities in a character and as a teacher, I love to base studies off his style. The novel itself really is magical and I think the world he's created really has shown success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I'm only half way through this book, as per usual, but I'm in love. I've read all (alright, excluding Cold Fire) of TP's books, and I love them. My only complaint is that Rosethorn is underplayed. (I love Rosethorn). Highly recommended, if you're a CoM fan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh Nooo This is one of the worst books i have ever read. the plot is very stupid and is insulting to people's intelligence. i would not recommend this book. it is awful. If you want to read a book read Harry Potter (laughs). It is at least 10 times better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magic is it all Magic is something I love, I know it probably is not real but I still love it. In Tamora Pierce's books I can live in a world with magic for a little while. In 'Street Magic' you get the message that anyone can be a mage(wizard, etc..) and maybe they just don't know. I really love this book, but I only gave it a 4 because I think that some of Tammy's other books are better.
