What's in a Name

I noticed that several other reviews on this page were asking whether this book was the same as Daja's book and it is. Fire in the Forging is the UK title for Daja's book like Healing in the Vines is the same as Briar's Book. I really enjoyed this book although I liked the Tortal books a little better I think that the Circle of magic books are a great read. Of all of the circle of magic books Daja's Book is my favorite. Part of the reason I enjoyed it was it really went into the details on the traders and enjoyed hearing about another of the cultures that Ms. Pierce has created. As usual for Ms. Pierce the characters were well and colorfully written so by the end of the book you felt lie you knew them. It was a fun story and if you choose to read it I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Circle of Magic, Daja's Book!

I have read all of the Circle of Magic books, but Briar's. Daja wasn't my favorite character in the Circle of Magic books. It's exciting to try to find out what happens to their magic after Sandry weaved Tris, Briar, Daja, and her's together in Sandry's Book. When the fire is out of hand and Daja is with the Traders, Daja doesn't know if she should save them after they kicked her out and marked her a trangshi when she was found after a ship wreaked with her family on it. I liked the end when some kind of metal was melted on her hand and was almost like her skin. I also like when Daja made a living metal plant that contains everyone's magic because Daja and her friends magic are combind together and they just found out how and why their magic are changing.


Although I did not consider Daja's book the best of the Circle of Magic series, nor Daja my favorite of the four charachters; I think Tamora Pierce made a masterpiece when she wrote this book. She creates a whole new world and culture with its own beliefs and way of living, not to mention a whole new language. A culture that has been stereotyped and abused but ignores the outside torment and stick to there beliefs, because the opinion of a kaq means nothing. It also shows you Daja's life before coming to Winding Circle. In Sandry's Book you have a clear picture of both Sandry's and Briar's backround but neither Tris nor Daja (until now) have shown their earlier life. In a way this book, of all four in the series lives up to its title. This book is almost completely about Daja.

Exelent Book A MUST READ!!!

Wonderful book by Pierce. It is about my favorite preson. I love how the Traders finnaly forgive Daja and make her one of them again. I also love how she made Daja carring enough to give Polyam her most want possetion. Write more like it Pierce:)

A Satisfying YA That Adults Can Enjoy, Too

As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed DAJA'S BOOK. I've been reading Tamora Pierce since ALANNA: THE FIRST ADVENTURE in the early 1980s, and it's been great to see her grow as a writer. I'd highly recommend this book to both teenagers and adults, especially those who've outgrown DRAGONLANCE and other by-the-numbers sword-slingers.The CIRCLE OF MAGIC series overall has been a treat--seeing her create a fantasy universe where the protagonists aren't, for a change, knights or warrior mages. (Not that I don't enjoy combat scenes--in fact, the highlight of TRIS'S BOOK is seeing her call down the thunder on the pirates!) But DAJA'S BOOK, like SANDRY'S BOOK, deals with natural disasters instead of human villains, and how Sandry, Tris, Briar and Daja use their magic to cope with more realistic problems like forest fires (this book) or earthquakes (SANDRY'S BOOK).Pierce, as always, creates appealing characters and a well-thought out universe. I can't wait to see what happens with BRIAR'S BOOK.
