Bored, she resorts to stirring up trouble, murder, and worse. That Jooba-hooba is almost worse, for he was taught better. And I don't mean only the scolding Rosethorn will give him!

There are good values in this story for children — doing the right thing, generosity, thinking of others, fair dealing, all the reasons why gang life is bad — and Pierce presents them well.

There are no lectures in here! The Story Briar and Rosethorn are off on their own adventure, settled in the town of Chammur while they help the farmers there.

It's very much a work-study trip for Briar. While Rosethorn helps the farmers, Briar works with the local temple, replenishing their stores.

It's on one of his trips to Golden House that Briar encounters a girl with magic, and he learns the lesson Sandry learned in Magic Steps , 1 5 : He who discovers the mage must teach the mage.

Ikrum Fazhal is their leader. Members of the gang include Sajiv , Orlana , and Yoru. The Lady Zenadia doa Attaneh , a Chammuran noblewoman and the aunt of the amir , is a manipulating nasty woman who's bored out of her mind and sadistic.

I almost gave this book four stars, but I don't think I could quite justify it while the urge to skim read was still there. I feel like I'm reading this series to get it over with rather than for enjoyment, although I do enjoy a lot of the elements.

Evvy as a character has always kind of disinterested me. I never gravitated to her the way I do the other main characters. It always felt a little weird to me that of all the students in this series, she's the one who became a main character.

The whol I almost gave this book four stars, but I don't think I could quite justify it while the urge to skim read was still there.

The whole gang warfare plot line is something I want to like, but it feels shallowly written. Maybe because it's for a younger audience, but it feels like the choices made by the gang members are too easy and the conflicts too simplistic.

I want a little more from it. Not a bad book by any means. Definitely worthwhile and a fun time, but I wish I connected better to the story and cared more about it.

Oct 13, Natalie rated it liked it Shelves: magic , young-adult , adventure , mythology , fantasy , mystery. It just lacked the impact that all the other Tamora Pierce books have had on me lately and I just feel kinda "meh" about it overall?

It's still GOOD, don't get me wrong, but it's just What was her motivation? It never really became clear to me - even in the very final moments - and I just She's basically been systematically murdering people of all ages and class for years and there's nothing behind it?

Nothing explained? She was using her victims as fertiliser in the damn garden! I wanted just so much MORE to this dammit ;u; On the bright side Briar's use of of his magic to take out someone with allergies hayfever ;D was great at least?

Jun 09, Ajax rated it liked it. This was an OK read, certainly good enough to pass the time, but not my favorite of Pierce's books.

It felt underdeveloped and unsatisfying in parts. I appreciated Evvy and Briar's and Briar and Rosethorn's rapport, and the social commentary on growing up destitute and becoming vulnerable to gangs.

Pierce's worldbuilding was, as always, extensive and interesting. I admire her ability to include such a wide range of cultures in Emelan.

She also excels at action scenes, and the big one here is pre This was an OK read, certainly good enough to pass the time, but not my favorite of Pierce's books.

She also excels at action scenes, and the big one here is pretty memorable and surprisingly gory! Pierce barely bothers to distinguish them from one another and the relations between each gang and between the gangs and the main antagonist are so thinly sketched that everyone's motivations become muddled and confusing.

I also thought that things came way too easy to Briar in this book. His student is an absolute prodigy and never struggles with anything Briar teaches her.

He confronts Lady Zenadia and gives her some lip, and she docilely retreats to her room to commit suicide, boom, done. Briar is able to use his plant magic to defeat any adversary that comes his way.

He barely raises a sweat and doesn't get so much as a scratch. It's all too easy. For a hero's journey to have any meaning, the hero must undergo some great danger, or sacrifice something, or acquire a lasting scar etc.

None of those happen to Briar. At the very end, there is a tiny section on how he's having nightmares because of the dead people he found, but it's too short to really have an impact.

Feb 27, Marisa rated it really liked it Shelves: series-other-review. This book was a great look into teenage Briar and just how much mischief he was able to get into after leaving the Winding Circle.

As he begins to get to know Evvy, he finds someone who is just as stubborn, perhaps even more so. As the two of them find themselves thrust into a turf war, each of them quickly have to develop into a stronger version of themselves.

Warning: Contains some violence. Who should read it? See all my reviews and more at www. When Briar Moss spots a girl named Evvy doing stone magic in a market place, he takes her on as his student.

Soon after Briar takes on Evvy, they are swept up into gang warfare between the Camelguts and the Vipers. Evvy is kidnapped for her magic by the Vipers and Briar must decide weather he is ready to take the final step away from his gang life for good.

It is a fast paced book with plenty of action. It's a quick and easy read for those who want to read something but don't have a lot of time, When Briar Moss spots a girl named Evvy doing stone magic in a market place, he takes her on as his student.

It's a quick and easy read for those who want to read something but don't have a lot of time, this is the book for you! Evvy at first doesn't really respect Briar but after he rescues her, he purchase's her a 'stone alphabet' and teaches her letters and how to read, she learns respect for him.

He also takes Evvy back to Discipline with him you find this out at the end and in The Will of the Empress. This book is good for ages 10 and up.

Street Magic Tamora Pierce Apr 19, Tony Hisgett rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , review. I started to get irritated with this book quite quickly and this continued for at least two thirds of the book.

Briar is now 14 years old but he seems to have regressed. He spends half the book whingeing and seems to be unable to recognise I started to get irritated with this book quite quickly and this continued for at least two thirds of the book.

He spends half the book whingeing and seems to be unable to recognise the obvious dangers of a rampant gang war and a vicious scheming power mad noble woman.

Finally in the last quarter of the book Briar seemed to wake up and this became an interesting story. I would give 2 stars for the first three quarters of the book and 5 stars for the last quarter, which is why I eventually settled on 3.

Aug 06, Kira Nerys rated it it was amazing Shelves: woman-author , owned-read , magic , fantasy , teens-and-death , orphans , middle-school , kids-on-the-streets , poc-protagonist , 5th-6th-middle-grade-upper.

Tbh, reread this purely bc I impulse-bought a bonsai and I wanted to know if Briar's had a name. It doesn't; he only refers to it by its style.

There's a whole wiki page on it , though. This is my favorite of the Circle Opens books. Some of that's my affection for Briar, some comes from how well we get to know Evvy, and some's just the layered situation that shows up throughout the book.

And the badass ending. Overall, it's a fun read featuring magical powers easy to relate to and easy to imagine. First of all, Briar is the original Steve from Stranger Things season 2 he's 14 and he has a 9-year-old student.

And no spoilers but the scene at the end is EPIC. I listened to the audiobook of this and I'd highly recommend it. It's Full Cast Audio and the actors are great.

The first book in this series is Sandry's Book. The 4 main characters are 10 in that one and they're 18 by the last book in the series. Aug 18, Lindsey rated it really liked it.

Also can we talk more about how we've had two excellent and unapologetic lady villains now?? I was worried this would be really contrived re: Briar as the "reformed street rat" but I think it came together really nicely showing his growth but especially his affection for his former life and I'm pleased.

Sep 07, Jenna rated it liked it Shelves: children-s , fantasy. Quick, engrossing, and entertaining. Like the previous volume, I'm enjoying this series more than when we met the original group at the Winding Circle, with its four rotating POVs.

The plot didn't seem as convoluted and was rather straightforward. But seeing Briar show off his magic was rather awesome.

Dec 19, James rated it it was amazing. I will never get tired of Briar Moss. Jan 06, Karen rated it it was amazing. Second book in The Circle Opens series.

It is a continuation of the characters in The Magic Circle series. The first book is about Sandry and this one is about Briar.

Briar and Rosethorn are traveling and when word gets around that a green mage is in town, farmers are always requesting help.

Chammuri is a very ancient city and the land around it has been farmed for years--thousands of years and the soil is now nutrient poor which does not bode well for healthy plant growth.

While Rosethorn deals with this problem, Briar helps the healing centers to strengthen it medicines and make sure there is plenty of medicines available to last a while.

He also plans to sell his trees in the market to help with money for their further travels. Briar has come a long way from being part of a street gang.

Now he is a green mage of considerable talent despite his young age but he still finds that he can relate to the other young people who are part of the gangs in Chammuri.

In fact, he has made a few friends and provided some minor healing and medicines to a few of the members in the gang that controls the neighborhood where him and Rosethorn are currently staying.

While in the city's market area scouting for a stall to sell his miniature trees, he comes across a young girl who is messing with the magic of stones.

When he tries to talk to the girl, she runs off. Briar knows that a young mage who does not have control of their power can be a dangerous person without meaning to be.

A stone mage in a city built on the cliffs with no control of their powers can be extremely dangerous. Parents Guide. External Sites.

It's ironic that feminist writer Tamora Pierce's only male character, the self-named Briar Moss, is one of her best characters.

Amongst the rest of the mainly female cast, his charisma, street smarts and ongoing inner conflict between his younger, wilder instincts, and his older, more civilized self, makes him one of the most lovable and well-rounded characters in the Circle of Magic series.

Underlying their feats are the strength of the friendship and the bonds of trust that they forge, making the original four books one of the most touching examples of a self-made foster family in young adult literature, particularly Apr 12, Abi The Knights Who Say Book rated it it was amazing Shelves: best-fantasy , main-character-of-color , diverse-reads , fantasy , young-adult , spies-thieves-and-assassins.

I guess I just really like Briar? Because both books that focus on him have been the ones I've rated five stars so far in my journey through the Emelan universe.

Actually, I think what makes Briar's books so good is that they tend to focus on classism and this dichotomy Briar has of growing up on the streets and then abruptly joining this part of society that is respected and sometimes feared.

He's always reconciling his past with his present and it always impacts how he sees the world. Also his r I guess I just really like Briar?

Also his relationship with Rosethorn is everything. Like when he wants to be scary so he immediately jumps to channeling Rosethorn?

Or when she grouches at him and his internal Or when he sees her interacting with Evvy and is reminded of how it was just like this when she first became his mentor.

I love it all and could cry at any moment. She keeps cats and talks to rocks and snarks back to Briar and can take care of herself!

And watching Briar go from "no way am I going to be this kid's teacher" to "touch my student and I will end you" is truly the most enjoyable experience.

Enjoy turning into Rosethorn, buddy. The ending of this book was probably my favorite part of the series to date. Watching Briar unleash the full extent of his powers to wreck havoc is And so exciting.

So now for the few quibbles I mentioned in my first reaction: why does Briar have pretend to be disgusted by "girly things"? And it's sort of a loving teasing, but it's also sort of like Tamora Pierce thought to herself "what do fourteen year old boys think about?

How silly girls are? Yeah I guess my fourteen year old boy better be like that too". Like, why tho? I don't entirely understand the extent to which Emelan is a patriarchy or not, but we see enough girls holding the same roles boys do in Emelan that I'm not even sure where Briar's getting these ideas from.

It felt like she fell back on standard tropes for how a young, snarky thief boy should think that doesn't feel nearly as original as the rest of Briar's character.

I will give credit for the part at the end of the book, where Briar talks to Rosethorn and admits that he used to think Tris was weak for waking up with nightmares about the deaths she caused but now he understands because he gets them too.

That moment fell in line and made his earlier comments more like set up to a moment of character development, in which a boy who's internalized parts of toxic masculinity realizes it's ok to need comfort.

But frankly that one line wasn't enough to make it an entire arc of development, so having those earlier comments felt sort of lopsided and unnecessary.

EDIT: I did just remember that Briar grew up in Hajra before being brought to Emelan, so he could have internalized these sort of sexist ideas before learning on a practical level at Winding Circle that they're wrong.

But I still don't entirely buy that justification, partly because of how off it felt during the reading experience. View 1 comment. Oct 17, Kayla Edwards rated it it was amazing Shelves: young-adult-novels , favorites.

Briar and his teacher, Rosethorn, have taken up temporary residence in Chammur while Rosethorn works with the local farmers to restore the land.

While in the market, Briar spots Evvy,a young street rat, cleaning stones and passing some of her magic to them. He soon finds out that as the discovering mage he is required to find her a teacher or do it himself.

All the while, a war is brewing between the local gangs and Briar is staying far away to avoid slipping back in to his former ways. But when Briar and his teacher, Rosethorn, have taken up temporary residence in Chammur while Rosethorn works with the local farmers to restore the land.

But when the gangs decide they want to recruit the newest stone mage in town, Briar must find a way to protect Evvy without reverting to the street rat once was.

Another of my constant rereads, this novel is amazing. There are a few times during Briar's struggle with his past that I get concerned about what he will do because I care about him so much!

The protective attitude he takes towards Evvy is incredible to see - I know that those who took him in years ago are beyond proud.

Evvy herself is a spitfire of a new character and I cannot wait for you to meet her. Totally recommend! Aug 31, Rachel rated it really liked it.

I adore Evvy. And Briar is awesomeness personified in so many ways. I loved Pierce's look at gang culture, I love how much she makes certain, always, to recognize the poor and impoverished as HUMAN, and her ability to write mounting tension It's good, y'all.

Real good. I want this circle of friendship to really grow!! I am glad that I'm reading these all back to back without a break, because it means I'm not going TOO long without seeing any one of the kids or their teachers.

Oct 07, Andy rated it really liked it Shelves: read , audio-narrators-i-love. I really love the way this full cast works. It's so easy to understand since there's still a narrator.

I was slightly disappointed that this one isn't narrated by Tamora, but it makes sense since this is mainly Briar's story. Also, the narrator was still great.

Oh Briar, I love his passion for plants and how he protects Rosethorn. They have such a wonderful working relationship and I'm glad she was saved at the end of the other series.

It was really interesting to see how Briar's perception of fo I really love the way this full cast works. It was really interesting to see how Briar's perception of food, money and gangs has changed since he started at Winding Circle.

He was super conflicted about gangs since he still believes you need them to survive in the beginning of this. I loved seeing Briar figure out how to teach Evvy, she reminded me so much of Briar in Sandry's book.

It was truly adorable. Also anyone who thinks a plant mage isn't dangerous is so wrong and I love when Briar would show them. But since it was second and made clear the fact that this series is Pierce's most formulaic yet, it sort of soured it for me.

Individually this book was rock solid. Briar was such a badass. He's fourteen now and officially a plant mage.

He and Rosethorn are traveling the world seeking out new plants and such. In the city of Chammur, they happen upon a street urchin named Evvy who is an untrained stone mage, and because no stone mage can be found to teach her, Briar as the mage who discovered her is obligated to do the teaching.

But he's not the only interested party in Evvy, as gang warfare actually begins to spring up around her, the gangs thinking they can use her talents to find hidden gems in the stone mazes of the ancient city and profit from her talents.

Evvy and Briar have a really nice bond, and their relationship prompts him to finally push back the barrier on his own gang-related past and grow up.

The final setpiece with Briar doing all kinds of awesome plant magic to rescue Evvy was seriously so cool, and I wish I could see it on film somehow.

It was soured at first by the fact that Sandry's book immediately preceding it also featured her finding an untrained mage and conveniently being the only one available to teach that mage.

It also featured her coming to terms with being the teacher now instead of the student. It was also markedly inferior to this one. Sandry's struggles just aren't as interesting as Briar's.

She's a noble with almost no personal struggles of her own. I am almost positive that the second and third books will also follow this formula, which is very disappointing.

Even if they are great on an individual level, they will be cheapened by this adherence to a formula which Pierce has inexplicably decided to bust out mid-career despite never having written like that previously.

But Briar is still a badass. I adore this series! You can see my series review on the blog. Apr 30, laurel [suspected bibliophile] rated it liked it Shelves: audiobooks , fantasy , read , ya-books , poc-mc.

Briar discovers a stone mage, Evvy, and must teach her to learn to use her magic. But street gangs and a powerful noblewoman stand in his way.

I didn't enjoy this one nearly half as much as I liked Magic Steps , and I think that part of the reason was that the villain's arc was introduced very late into the story well, the evil-evil part of the plot, anyway and felt like an add-on to spark drama and action instead of being more of a part of the plot.

Also, I'm tired of the evil eunuch henchman t Briar discovers a stone mage, Evvy, and must teach her to learn to use her magic. Also, I'm tired of the evil eunuch henchman trope.

Additionally, Evvy's voice was nasally as hell and I wasn't fond of Briar constantly being surprised about girls being competent or girls loving to talk about everything or girls liking clothes TL;DR: I'm tired [image error] Feb 05, Anna 'Bookbuyer' rated it it was amazing Shelves: own , to-sort , read This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

To view it, click here. Stone magic, eh. I like Evy's pluck and Briar's protectiveness of her. When he tore down the lady's house to get to her.

Like she was a Goddess!!! I really hope that Evvy continues her education in both stone magic and general education. And that Briar survives having another prickly female mage around.

I like Evvy and Brian. I think they get along well Stone magic, eh. I think they get along well. Evvy is also one of the only characters from the The Circle Open series besides the main cast that is in one or more of the Circle Reforged series books.

I really dislike Chammur. I hate how they treat the poor and how they coddle the rich. I was happy to see that the watchman had a female assistant since Briar pointed out that wasn't common.

Of all the magics I find plant magic and stone magic to be a bit boring. I mean it's not playing with lighting or fire! But it was still fun to read about Briar again.

Second in The Circle Opens and sixth in the overall Emelan fantasy series for middle-grade readers and revolving around Briar Rose and his discovery, Evvy.

If you're interested, there is a chronological listing of the Emelan books on my website. My Take The idea of the tattoos Briar gave himself may have backfired a bit, but they suit him.

I like that Pierce has the kids finding apprentices whose magic is not the same as their own. It provides the storyline more independence as the apprentices requ Second in The Circle Opens and sixth in the overall Emelan fantasy series for middle-grade readers and revolving around Briar Rose and his discovery, Evvy.

It provides the storyline more independence as the apprentices require more characters to be brought in and made a part of the "family".

It's taken until Briar's story for me to realize the meaning of "The Circle Opens". I mean, duhhh, the original circle is Briar, Sandry, Tris, and Daja.

With this second quartet of books, The Circle Opens as each discovers a mage who needs teaching. I suspect The Circle Reforged will bring the four back together, although I haven't figured out what their adventures might be!

I do love that Briar's trees are arguing with him. I can't decide if I think the trees are like siblings or independent-thinking pets, lol.

Using the gang war as a device to influence Evvy to trust Briar was a good idea. It helps the conflict over Evvy accepting Briar's help smoother, more natural.

That so-called Lady is a piece of work. Bored, she resorts to stirring up trouble, murder, and worse. That Jooba-hooba is almost worse, for he was taught better.

And I don't mean only the scolding Rosethorn will give him! There are good values in this story for children — doing the right thing, generosity, thinking of others, fair dealing, all the reasons why gang life is bad — and Pierce presents them well.

There are no lectures in here! The Story Briar and Rosethorn are off on their own adventure, settled in the town of Chammur while they help the farmers there.

It's very much a work-study trip for Briar. While Rosethorn helps the farmers, Briar works with the local temple, replenishing their stores.

I feel like I'm reading this series to get it over with rather than for enjoyment, although I do enjoy a lot of the elements. Evvy as a character has always kind of disinterested me.

I never gravitated to her the way I do the other main characters. It always felt a little weird to me that of all the students in this series, she's the one who became a main character.

The whol I almost gave this book four stars, but I don't think I could quite justify it while the urge to skim read was still there.

The whole gang warfare plot line is something I want to like, but it feels shallowly written. Maybe because it's for a younger audience, but it feels like the choices made by the gang members are too easy and the conflicts too simplistic.

I want a little more from it. Not a bad book by any means. Definitely worthwhile and a fun time, but I wish I connected better to the story and cared more about it.

It's still GOOD, don't get me wrong, but it's just What was her motivation? It never really became clear to me - even in the very final moments - and I just She's basically been systematically murdering people of all ages and class for years and there's nothing behind it?

Nothing explained? She was using her victims as fertiliser in the damn garden! I wanted just so much MORE to this dammit ;u; On the bright side Briar's use of of his magic to take out someone with allergies hayfever ;D was great at least?

Jun 09, Ajax rated it liked it. This was an OK read, certainly good enough to pass the time, but not my favorite of Pierce's books.

It felt underdeveloped and unsatisfying in parts. I appreciated Evvy and Briar's and Briar and Rosethorn's rapport, and the social commentary on growing up destitute and becoming vulnerable to gangs.

Pierce's worldbuilding was, as always, extensive and interesting. I admire her ability to include such a wide range of cultures in Emelan.

She also excels at action scenes, and the big one here is pre This was an OK read, certainly good enough to pass the time, but not my favorite of Pierce's books.

She also excels at action scenes, and the big one here is pretty memorable and surprisingly gory! Pierce barely bothers to distinguish them from one another and the relations between each gang and between the gangs and the main antagonist are so thinly sketched that everyone's motivations become muddled and confusing.

I also thought that things came way too easy to Briar in this book. His student is an absolute prodigy and never struggles with anything Briar teaches her.

He confronts Lady Zenadia and gives her some lip, and she docilely retreats to her room to commit suicide, boom, done.

Briar is able to use his plant magic to defeat any adversary that comes his way. He barely raises a sweat and doesn't get so much as a scratch.

It's all too easy. For a hero's journey to have any meaning, the hero must undergo some great danger, or sacrifice something, or acquire a lasting scar etc.

None of those happen to Briar. At the very end, there is a tiny section on how he's having nightmares because of the dead people he found, but it's too short to really have an impact.

Feb 27, Marisa rated it really liked it Shelves: series-other-review. This book was a great look into teenage Briar and just how much mischief he was able to get into after leaving the Winding Circle.

As he begins to get to know Evvy, he finds someone who is just as stubborn, perhaps even more so. As the two of them find themselves thrust into a turf war, each of them quickly have to develop into a stronger version of themselves.

New York based artist and magician Jeff Sheridan is regarded as one of the pre-eminent U. More recently, other performers have garnered accolades from the magic community for their contributions to the art.

Jim Cellini a. Gazzo Macee a. Eric Evans has been a full-time professional since the s and co-wrote -- along with Nowlin Craver -- a book on the subject The Secret Art of Magic.

The second category is more appropriately called "guerrilla magic" [2] It is a relatively recent style of performing magic illusions where the magician performs a single trick or two in a public space such as on a sidewalk for an unpaying audience.

The desired effect of this "hit and run" style of magic is to give the audience a feeling that what they are seeing is impromptu , unrehearsed, and experimental.

This style of "street magic" is associated with David Blaine who popularized the term and more recently, Criss Angel , Derren Brown and Cyril Takayama.

Many magicians respect Blaine's choice of material and give him credit for creating an image of the contemporary magician distinct from other magicians in recent television history, such as David Copperfield or Doug Henning.

However, magic historians, such as Jamy Ian Swiss note that "guerrilla magic" is primarily associated with only a few individuals who perform on television and certain magic dealers that sell effects to amateur magicians who watch these programs.
