Publisher Comments:

Part of the 8-book Tamora Pierce reissue for Fall 2006, this title in the Circle of Magic quartet features spellbinding new cover art. Coincides with the release of WILL OF THE EMPRESS in trade pb.

Four elements of power, four mages-in-training learning to control them. In Book 1 of the Circle of Magic Quartet, gifted young weaver Sandry is brought to the Winding Circle community. There she meets Briar, a former thief with a way with plants; Daja, an outcase gifted at metalcraft; and Tris, whose connection with the weather unsettles everyone, including herself. The four misfits are taught how to use their magic, but when disaster strikes, it's up to Sandry to weave together four different kinds of power to save herself, her friends, and Winding Circle.

Synopsis:

Here begins the tale of Daja, Briar, Tris, and Sandry--four children brought to Winding Cirle Temple for training in crafts and magic. They are outcasts in their homeland. But in this magical place, they are valued and respected for their special powers.

I loved this series. Each of the books are from one of their perspectives and this was a very good book for the series opener. Would recommend to anyone.

I really liked this! This series, Circle of Magic, centers on four young people who are just discovering the powerful magic they were born with. All four are troublemakers in one way or another, misfits who haven't found someplace they really feel comfortable. They are brought together at Winding Circle, where they begin to learn to explore and control their talents -- and how to trust people, as well.
What I really admired, beyond Pierce's excellent characters, was how carefully she has created the magic system that rules her world. It's surprising how many fantasy writers build worlds that are run by magic, but never put any though into the rules that magic runs by -- or worse, create rules, and then blithely break them
