Daja’s Book – Tamora Pierce

Circle of Magic: Book 3

While traveling in a drought and fire-stricken part of the country with her fellow students and their mentors, the young people’s magical talents somehow become intertwined,.

This allows Daja, who is linked to the element of fire and the craft of smithing, to create a seemingly living vine out of metal. Nomadic Traders recognize the vine as a powerful object and purchase it from Daja. Having been cast out by the Trader class as a young child when her family’s ship sank, she is seen as a source of bad luck to be avoided at all costs. During the negotiations, she must come to terms with the part of her that still yearns for her past life, and her growing power as a mage.

I really like how the teens accidentally link their powers, and even though it’s somewhat of a disaster, they still manage to create something wonderful. Daja’s vine is an amazing wonder.  This book really made me feel for Daja, who I had found a little tough in the earlier books.    – Jessica, Teen Librarian
