Daja's Book (Circle of Magic #3)
Daja must choose--should she return to the Traders or remain with the Winding Circle folk who have become her family?
In Dajas Book, the four young mages, from the previous Circle of Magic books, must help save a city from terrible wild fires. Daja gets a chance to go back to being a Trader. This book has really cool demonstrations of all the young mages magic. Maybe even more than the first to books.
This is the third novel of the Circle of Magic quartet. Daja (a metal mage) in previous books has been declared bad luck by her Trader kinsmen. She is forbidden to speak with any Trader. When the traders first come in need of a blacksmith they insist that she touches nothing of theirs for fear of bad luck. However, their interest in her increases when as a result of accidental magic she creates living metal. But will Daja want to go back to those who shunned her?
Tamora Pierce tells Daja's story beautifully and portrays all of her emotions extremely well. The story has no dull moments. However, reading the first two books would greatly enhance a reader's understanding.
