    About "Tamora Pierce"

        Hey, folks I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single star ratings except I haven t How do I know I haven t Because I haven t read those books at all So before you go getting all hacked off at me for trashing your favorites, know that I ve written GoodReads to find out what s going on.I return to my regularly scheduled profile Though I would love to join groups, I m going to turn them all down I just don t have the time to take part, so please don t be offended if I don t join your group or accept an invitation I m not snooty I m just up to my eyeballs in work and appearances Also, don t be alarmed by the number of books I ve read When I get bored, I go through the different lists and rediscover books I ve read in the past It s a very evil way to use up time when I should be doing other things Obviously, I ve read a lot of books in 54 years I was born in South Connellsville, PA My mother wanted to name me Tamara but the nurse who filled out my birth certificate misspelled it as Tamora When I was 8 my family moved to California, where we lived for 6 years on both sides of the San Francisco peninsula.I started writing stories in 6th grade My interest in fantasy and science fiction began when I was introduced to The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien and so I started to write the kind of books that I was reading After my parents divorced, my mother took my sisters and me back to Pennsylvania in 1969 There I went to Albert Gallatin Senior High for 2 years and Uniontown Area Senior High School for my senior year.After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, I wrote the book that became The Song of the Lioness fantasy quartet I sold some articles and 2 short stories and wrote reviews for a martial arts movie magazine At last the first book of the quartet, Alanna The First Adventure was published by Atheneum Books in 1983.Tim Liebe, who became my Spouse Creature, and I lived in New York City with assorted cats and two parakeets from 1982 2006 In 2006 we moved to Syracuse, New York, where we live now with assorted cats, a number of squirrels, birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and woodchucks visiting our very small yard As of 2011, I have 27 novels in print, one short story collection, one comic book arc White Tiger A Hero s Compulsion co written with Tim, and a short story anthology co editing credit There s to come, including a companion book to the Tortall verse So stay tuned


    1. It's been too many years since I read this second quartet in the Circle of Magic series. I missed the full cast reading, but it's still so nice to give the words your own full attention. A few gaps in the story have been filled - now on to the next!

    2. This is more like a really high three, but I'm rounding up because of sentiment. I still find myself wanting more from the Emelan books, and not getting it. They just take place in such a short period of time, and there isn't much character interaction. There was even less in this one than usual, because the four main characters are split up, each character getting their own spotlight book while the others are off having adventures in other parts of the world.This one is Sandry's book, and the m [...]

    3. Four years after the magical plague swept their city in Briar's Story, the magical students of Winding Circle have separated to pursue further training. Sandry, whose gift lies in weaving magic as though it were thread, discovers a boy with a strange ability. Unlike ordinary mages, he has to dance to do magic. Everyone else in his family is a harrier (the city's version of police), but Sandry convinces them to let him train with her. Meanwhile, a feud between merchant clans leads to murder, as a [...]

    4. I *loved* this book. It's perhaps the darkest of Pierce's books so far (although the end of the Protector of the Small series, and much of the Beka Cooper series, rivals it), but I also love the way it builds on CIRCLE OF MAGIC. It's clear that THE CIRCLE OPENS is likely to be about adding new mages to ~the circle of friendship~ and about Sandry, Briar, Tris, and Daja growing up- at least, this book certainly seems to make that point, as Sandry is featured in a new role, and a new young mage, Pa [...]

    5. This was cute. The Emelan books aren't as compelling to me as Tortall, but I liked the idea of dancing magic a lot. WHOA, though, that ending is WAY more violent than Pierce usually goes with.

    6. I really enjoyed this book and it is a book that is on a higher maturity level than the original Circle of Magic books. Among the themes at play here are Sandry's devotion to her uncle and her desire to care for him out of selfless love as opposed to the selfishness of Duke Vestry's third son and current heir. In the original Circle of Magic books we saw Sandry as both the most psychologically damaged of the four youths due to her accidental imprisonment in the dark and also as the most compassi [...]

    7. is one of my favorite nostalgic books of my childhood. I find it so fun and comforting to read.I love this book as an expansion of that. I love seeing Sandry really coming into her own as a full mage and spending more time with her uncle. The new characters are fun and I think it's interesting to see more of how Tamora Pierce separates her two lands. We see police work and mages in this one but it's totally different from how things work in the Beka Cooper series. Anyway I've been having a lot o [...]

    8. I just finished re-reading the whole series. What I love about Tamora Pierce's books is that she creates different worlds within the greater cosmos/magical structure, based on countries in our world. Each of the books in this series revolves around one of the characters from her earlier Circle of Magic books finding an ambient mage to train, whilst trying to solve a different murder mystery. Half murder mystery, half-fantasy, and well integrated between the two. I will admit that they get a bit [...]

    9. I read/liked the Circle of Magic books when I was a kid but didn't realize this second quartet existed until last year when I found the originals in my closet and re-read them. So this is the first time. Tamora Pierce is a good storyteller and even though there are cliché elements they're usually put together in an interesting way. There's always the clear sense that this is a kid's book (thematically, and also in terms of writing style) but there's nothing patronizing about it.

    10. In the previous quartet, the four mages work and live together. But that's not the case with this new series. This first book was all Sandry. I thought that I wouldn't enjoy them being apart, but it felt right. I think it's necessary for the characters to grow as adults and as mages. I really loved this book and I look forward to the next three.

    11. These keep getting better! I really enjoy Sandry as a character and her development. The new magics that Pierce keeps creating are very interesting!

    12. Review originally posted at The Otaku Librarian.As a disclaimer, even though I've only given it three stars, I did enjoy it more than its prequel series, possibly due to the fact that it centered around only two protagonists rather than a whole slew of them. I originally thought this to be a children's novel along the lines of Tamora Pierce's other works. Once the blood and gore started splattering about, however, I was shocked. And then I realized, oh YA. But still, there are literal buckets of [...]

    13. Sandry, you are an inspiration. Seriously, she's an amazing person and a great teacher (while at the same time she's struggling with it, losing her patience with Pasco etc illustrating how very human she is) and reading about her is a joy; she's probably my favourite "Lady" character of all time. She spins her magic, she's soft-spoken and thoughtful and observant and feminine and if you think any of that is a weakness, you couldn't be farther from the truth - and both Sandry herself & this b [...]

    14. Unmagic. Eww. I'd really have hated to be Sandry when she wove that unmagic thread. Gah.Edited: Added detailI just realized that the unmagic is somewhat like depression. It robs you of the will to do anything and infects every part of your body and life.I'm glad that the children are growing up and learning to pass on what they themselves have learned. I'm worried about Sandry's Uncle and glad that he might have a new love interest in the beautiful dance Yazmin! :)Edited:I feel so bad for the li [...]

    15. I'd only read this book when it first came out, before now. I remembered it being flat and disappointing, and I have to say that I'm still not impressed with it on my re-read. Throughout the novel, I can't come to care about Pasco at all; he never really becomes a three-dimensional character. The book is very fast-paced, everything happens within the span of a week or so. It's a quick read, but it never hits emotional chords or makes me really care about what's going on. I love Sandry, but even [...]

    16. This is the first book in the second quartet about the mages of Winding Circle. Unlike the earlier four books, the four main characters have split up to follow their own paths, and each book really does focus on one of them in particular.I liked the first series, so I liked getting to find out more about what happens with Sandry and her uncle. The addition of Pasco, the dancer mage, is interesting, but his storyline seemed to be relegated to the background much of the time. He came off as more o [...]

    17. Whew. Parts of this are ugly. Those are the powerful parts, though. In fact, the plot here is much stronger than the characterization; Pasco is a caricature with a talent, Yazmin is every other funny, talented teacher, and Sandry doesn't change or grow. But both the plot and the idea of unmagic are great propellants: they're ugly and costly and result in painful decisions.I think this is the weakest of the later books, though. It's Sandry on her own, and these books are stronger when the protago [...]

    18. I listened to this on audio. I believe the author reads these, at least in part, and I almost had to abandon the story because I couldn't tell if she was a real person or some sort of computer generated voice. It was very distracting. I hate when great story gets bogged down in audio semantics. I'm glad I stuck with it. The story was engaging and exciting.

    19. I generally love Tamara Pierce, but I wasn't thrilled with this one. I haven't read the Circle series, so I missed some background & didn't have an emotional attachment to the main character. If anything, she annoyed me because she did not seem like a 14 year old. Maybe 18, but not 14.

    20. I think I like this more than the first time, but it's not quite a 4-star book. Sandry is now 14 and has to start training a younger magician, who's been dismissed and bullied by his large family, and who has lost his ability to focus and his ambition.

    21. I really like the Circle of Magic books. Kid safe, if they are old enough for serious bad guys and a little blood and guts.

    22. I grew up on Tamora Pierce, but I had always read books set in the Tortall universe. I've never read the Emelan books. Unfortunately my library doesn't have all of them, let alone in order, so I read this book 100 percent clueless as to what happened in the first series.I like Sandry. The way the book starts I thought Pasco, the dancer-mage that the book is named for and the cover depicts, would be the main character. By the end of the book I still felt like I didn't know him or had much reason [...]

    23. I always love revisiting a world that has swept me away. It was no different when I first started reading The Circle Opens series. Four years after the conclusion of The Circle of Magic series, Sandry is alone, moving in the adult world. That in and of itself would make a fantastic story, but the addition of Sandry’s first student makes this story irresistible. Add in a dash of crime, mayhem and mystery… and this tale is dark, twisted and brilliant.It is human nature to pass on our knowledge [...]

    24. First in the The Circle Opens fantasy subseries (fifth in the Emelan overall series) for young middle grade readers and revolving around Lady Sandry. If you're interested, there is a chronological listing of The Circle Opens books on my website. My Take I do love Tamora Pierce's stories. She has the greatest characters and the coziest scenes — she weaves a story you fall into. It's amazing what Pierce comes up with that spinning thread and weaving it can do as magic. Makes you appreciate threa [...]
