Briar and Rosethorn are in the city of Chammur,in Briar's old home land of Sotat.One day in the market he sees Evvy,a "street rat"polishing stones for a merchant.Briar can see that she has stone magic,and resolves to track her down and find a teacher for her .This means getting her to trust him.Meanwhile Briar is caught up in gang warfare,even though he promised not to go back to his old way of life.One of the gangs wants Evvy to join them,so she can track down hidden jewels for them.In the end he must choose between what he thinks he needs to,and what he knows he has do.This book opeons up a completely different side of Briar not seen in the previous one.

I love Briar's character!!!

I have always thought Briar was a very great character despite him being a boy. And me a girl. I really don't care what a book is about even if it's kinda bloody. Like this book. Tamora is a gifted author who can capture a character in twisted plots where they end up nlowing things up. I don't care if no one likes my review but I think this is one of Tamora's best books since Sandry's book and Briar's book. Briar having to teach a young girl when ( this is what I have noticed) he doesn't really like girls. This Book reminds me of Magic Steps. Because in both books the young mages have to become teachers to younger mages.

Loved it

I'll keep this short. I love all of Pierce's books and can't wait until the next. This book focused on Briar and his past. He faces his past as a gang member as he teaches Evvy. He reevaluates how good a gang really his. He finds someone else to care about besides the girls and his teachers in Winding Circle. I think that it was a great book and read it in one hour and a half. (I am a speedy reader) I absolutely loved it and I can't wait until the next one.=p

Briar the Plant Mage at fourteen!!!

It's been four years since Briar Moss left Winding Circle Temple in SummerSea . Now he is in Chammur. There he meets Evvy. She is a 10 year old girl who uses her magic to polish stones for a local merchant. When Briar try's to talk to her she flees.Finally , she gives in and Briar starts teaching her about her magic. Then, a local gang called the Vipers here Briar say that Evvy has stone magic so they try to kidnap her to make a profit on her ability. In the meantime the Vipers are trying to take over Camelgut territory with the help of a rich noble. She gives them weapons and the Vipers start a war with the Camelguts. I won't spoil the whole book. All I can say is that this book is right up there with all of her other wonderful,marvelious,outstanding,terrific quartets. I highly reccomend this book. Only if you can manage complex plots and many confusing parts. I hope many of you out there have lots of acadimic ability!!!!!! Farewell!

from the mage of Missouri

This book is great! When Briar discovers that there is a girl named Evvy who lives in all these tunnels who is a stone mage he finds out he must teach her as a student, he also discovers that there is a rich lady's toy gang named the Vipers who is after her so they can break into places and get all the jewels in the place and they will do anything to get her, he must protect her. Rosethorn is actually nice to her and they end up living with her. Briar makes friends with a gang called the Camelguts and helps them when they are being beat to death by the Vipers, and how do they repay them? by joining the Vipers because they don't wanna fight any more! In the Circle of Magic Quartet, Tris's Book they cover a pirate fleet with plants, but it takes all 4 of them, but in this book Briar destroys a giant mansion all by himself. You find out that their teachers have given them all tokens in these books to show that they can train as adults, but Briar can sence they aren't telling him something about the tokens cause everyone obeys them if they show them the tokens, I think it shows that they are great mages like their teachers. I'll leave the rest to you.
