Editorial Reviews

In the first audiobook of Pierce's Circle of Magic quartet, the mage Niklaren Goldeye gathers four children and takes them to Winding Circle temple. They possess powers they do not understand, which leads to their being moved to Discipline cottage and which may end up making them a family. Full Cast Audio used almost 30 actors in this presentation, and the result is an exceptional match between the voices and the character descriptions, including children's characters being voiced by children. The resulting authenticity helps bring the world of Emelan to life. High production values are also seen in the musical accents and sound quality.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story about craft, about work, about magic, and most of all about the pleasure and difficulty of friendship. It begins when four young misfits with a talent for magic (and trouble!) arrive at Winding Circle Temple. Despite their differences, Sandry (the noble), Tris (the merchant girl), Daji (the trader), and Briar (the "street rat") find themselves bound together in a Circle of Magic - a circle they will need when they face crushing danger in a white-knuckle climax that will have listeners glued to the edges of their seats.
Follow the adventures of all the young mages-in-training with Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic series.

"Sandry's Book is a wonderful fantasy story and the Full Cast Audio presentation puts listeners right in the middle of the action." (The Shy Librarian)

Excellent production of a great book

I am a fan of Full Cast Audio (and their predecessor Words Take Wing). I am also a fan of the Circle of Magic books, of which this is the first. The combination is truly excellent; I have listened to this audiobook several times already. This is a great book for girls of any age, and my brothers love it too. I am crossing my fingers that Audible will get the other books in this series as they are released. Note: for those who may have concerns about the morals in Tamora Pierce's other series, these books shouldn't be a problem.

Excellent Read

I have long enjoyed Tamora Piece's novels. This one continues in the tradition of excellence that she has set out in her previous work. This book with its new take on magic, and its intensely interesting four young characters kept me interested from the moment I began to listen. This the first novel of the quartet describes how the four come to be togethor and details their trials in learning their own unique abilities and talents, and becoming more of a group and less individuals despite their different backgrounds. Also of note is the high quality of voice acting, w/ multiples actors for the different characters making the transitions in dialog smooth and keeping the flow of the story both interesting and pleasant.
