©2006 Tamora Pierce; (P)2006 Full Cast Audio
I really enjoy the Magic Circle and Circle Opens series. Written for young-adult readers but with enough interest for an adult, this is my perfect post-work 'unwind'. Characters and world are pleasant and well-realised, and the performances match the story.
i like this book but this is the second one in the circle opens there are three other books put those up please
"The Stone mage"
I liked seeing Briar mature in his second book, and I really liked Evvy.
The final confrontation always sticks in my mind, though when I think of this book tend to first remember Evvy's reaction to magic.
I don't have one.
Probably something cheesy like "Time to rock" but that's because i'm bad at making tag lines...
"Excellent bit of diversion..."
I listened to this independently of the series-- I actually thought it was the first of them-- and as soon as it was done I started the series.
This was a nice well-written piece of fantasy, with an intelligent plot and good characters. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
cant wait to read next one as well as others by same author. there
I loved this story. I'll be honest, I didn't like full cast audio in the first book of theirs I listened to, Wild Magic. But in this one they did a simply incredible job. Serious kudos! And, like everything by Tampa Pierce, the story itself is wonderful
"I always like full cast audio"
I was a little disappointed that it wasn't Tamora Pierce herself narrating this time, but Bruce Coville did a good job too, and the voice actors were great, as usual.
I love almost everything Tamora Pierce has written, both Tortall and Emelan, and enjoy their translation to full cast audio books.
The frist four books were outstanding. Both
as a writen work and as a audiobook.
I was very disappointed in this the fith book.
It was mostly done in the third preson narrative. Compare to the frist four book. which had lots more dialoge. With that said it's still a fair read/listen. Just don't expect them to be as good as the frist four. Or you too will be disapointed too.
