Briar is my favourite character of the quartet, so I was very excited to be reading his book. I always enjoyed reading his personality. His thought process was always amusing.

Once again, Tamora Pierce has impressed me. She creates a world which is both enjoyable and easy to read, and I found myself taking in every word. What I wished for (like in book one) was interaction between the quartet, and I feel that is what is missing for this series.

However, nonetheless, most enjoyable anyway, and I look forward to be reading the following 2 books. ( )

Briar becomes involved in local gang wars when he takes an interest in a young stone mage.

Briar and Rosethorn are some of my favorites, and I enjoy the new student Evvy as well. I'm looking forward to watching her grow with her expanding cat colony. ( )

Listened to the Full Cast Audio CD edition. Previously read. ( )

No where near as good as the other books in the "Circle Opens" series. I constantly found my attention wandering, and had to go back to see what actually happened. Part of this was because I just didn't care for Evy much, and part of it was the distinct lack of Briar doing any magic for himself. ( )

I guess this series is growing on me because I enjoyed this, the second book in the Circle Opens series. The storyline was predictable but entertaining. The writing is good, the characters interesting. Definitely growing on me! ( )
