Beschreibung von Audible
As with the other books in this fantasy series, this story revolves around four mage apprentices, though it focuses on Daja Kisubo, who is skilled with fire and learning the art of smithing. Daja creates a living vine out of metal, which traders seek to purchase. Pierce, known for her fantasy series portraying strong, young female characters, has created another intriguing person in Daja; the young performer who plays her creates a believable, likable Daja who is by turns wistful and belligerent. Author Pierce narrates this story along with a cast of 16, all well suited to their characters. This approach lends a depth to the story and will assure Pierce fans that it is read the way the writer imagined it.
On a journey to Gold Ridge, the four young mages-in-training, Daja, Sandry, Tris, and Briar, find their special magics overlapping, sometimes in frightening and destructive ways. One burst of this combined magic leads Daja to create an astonishing vine made of living metal.
Her creation is worth a small fortune. But can Daja bargain with the Traders who cast her out without losing her soul?
Once again, Tamora Pierce, America's most popular writer of young adult fantasy, leads the Full Cast Family in a thrilling exploration of her intricately woven Circle of Magic.
"The fantasy elements of the series as a whole are satisfyingly well imagined, as are the main characters." (School Library Journal)
