"The fantasy elements of the series as a whole are satisfyingly well imagined, as are the main characters." (School Library Journal)

"Full Cast Audio does it again"
This is the 3rd of 4 Cirle of Magic Books. You should definately listen to them in order. (The previous two books, Sandry's Book and Tris's Book are both available on Audible.) I loved the books (which I own), yet the audio versions are so good that I haven't read the books since I first listened to them. This one has much more information about the Trader culture and customs, which is very interesting. It also has a good lesson on how refusing to let anyone help you doesn?t make you strong. But mostly, it's just a lot of fun.
"What a great."
I love this series and recommend it highly. The variety of characters and their different strengths and weaknesses is always such a joy to me; to see a girl whose magic is in standard woman's work- sewing and weaving - and who is also strong and whose magic is incredibly useful and important; to see a girl whose magic is in what is usually considered men's work - smithing - and see her flourish; to see a girl whose magic is the most powerful and dangerous of all; to see a boy whose magic is plants and gardening, and to have his plantmagic teacher, a woman, be even more fearsome than he is - I just adore how the usual tropes are dumped out the window and how the story is more engaging and beautiful for it.
"One of my favorites"
I adore everyone in this this series but for some reason I've always loved Dajas stories the most. Her trader culture is fascinating and her straight forward no nonsense attitude is refreshing. The full cast presentation is great although sometimes the three girl voice actresses can get confusing when the author doesn't present them when they speak, like 'Daja said...' The dialogue just starts
"Best one yet"
ya out of all the circle books this one is the best. not perfect. but man it was a good read. I may even listen to it again.
Excellent series. But do wish they had recorded the first in the series, "Sandry's Book' and would get with the recording of the last in the series, " Briar's Book'.
We have really enjoyed listening to the children's fantastic tales.
