Daja's Book (Circle of Magic #3) Reviews

    Daja?s Book is the third in Tamora Pierce?s children?s fantasy book series, Circle of Magic. I was previously classifying this as young adult, but this book has firmly set my mind on the subject. At the end of these books, I keep wanting more from them. More development. More sop...

    I really loved this book. The only reason it's four stars instead of five stars is because I didn't connect at all with some of the magic used here- there are times of the kids being magically away from their bodies, and that completely takes me out of the experience of the book. Bu...

    Small disclaimer: Daja has always been my favourite. Not just my favourite in the series, and not just one of my favourite Tamora Piece characters, but a favourite all-time character. As a child I was so, so envious of her ability to work metal, and her skill combined with her tough...

    Pretty standard fare for this series. I continue to have difficulty imagining the magical workings. ...

    Thrilling and emotional and wonderful. These books are amazing. ...

    I love all the insight we get into Trader culture in this book, and all the new characters! Daja is amazing. Don't fuck with nature. Forest fires are serious business. ...

    Ugh, these audiobooks are great but they take so much longer to finish than a physical book, so by the time I'm writing the review the beginning is kinda faded. Anyway, finally reading this series continues to be a great idea. I love how this book really delves into Daja's feelings ...

    While Tris's Book was a little weak and closely followed the pattern of Sandry's Book, Daja's Book mixes things up and it definitely benefits from this. The group is journeying with Sandry's uncle, trying to help areas that have been hit hard by drought and failing crops. The change of...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, and Sandry are traveling Emelan with the Duke to see what they can do about the drought and subsequent famine that is plaguing the area. During this tour, Daja runs into a group of traders - people of the culture that shunned her after her entire family died at sea. ...

    Third in the Circle of Magic fantasy series for young middle-grade readers and revolving around four young friends tied together by magic. Daja's Book was nominated for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's Literature in 2000. Visit KD Did It Takes on Books for a chronologi...

    I'd forgotten how this whole series takes place in such a short period of time. This one is only 4 months after Sandry's Book. And then if I remember correctly, 4 years pass between Briar's Book and the Circle Opens quartet. Thoughts on relationships: for all Tamora Pierce has said ...

    This one had more depth than the others. The characters are maturing, and as a result, the writing is too. ...

    Sometimes the selection of audiobooks through my library (i.e., free audiobooks) are quite limited. Case in point. That said, this is the third --- yes, third book I've read in this series. Why? The reviews sounded great, and I think I like Tamora Pierce. I can't remember why I...

    :') :') :') ...

    The third book in a series is always a mystery sometimes the main characters become dull and boring...other times the book series begins to reveal the mysteries of the novel...reading this one changed your prospective on Daja and her beliefs as a Trader...one of the best moments in the...

    There's a lot to learn about Trader custom and ritual in this book. Daja encounters some Traders, and has to deal with them labeling her as an unclean outcast. It's pretty rough on her, though she does get the upper hand when she accidentally creates a living iron vine that they want t...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, Sandry, and their teachers have travelled to the Gold Ridge Mountains to see if they can help with the drought that?s been going on for three years. While there, they meet with a group of Traders. When Daja, once a Trader herself, creates something so amazing that ...

    I originally reviewed this book on my blog - The Cosy Dragon. For more recent reviews by me, please hop over there. Tris, Daja, Briar and Sandry are still great friends, and their magics are twining together just as well as before. Unfortunately, that means that plant mage Briar is ...

    Alright book three. This one contines to bring the four closer but also to seperate them selves into individuals again. This one is also about belonging, but it includes loss, and change and longing for a return of what is forever gone. I guess it's also about acceptance of what's new ...

    Even though this book's structure is very similar to the previous two books - character-heavy all throughout, minimal plot that reappears and intensifies close to the end - I felt this book muddled things a bit. It bit off probably more than it could chew, trying to balance Daja's pers...

    Daja, the third member of the Circle of Magic, was born into the Trader culture; nomadic merchants who live according to their own rules and customs. At the beginning of the series, ten-year-old Daja was the only survivor of a shipwreck which killed her entire family. Because of this, ...

    I love the part where she saves the trader caravan despite their treatment of her! Go Daja! Edit: Added detail I always feel bad for poor Daja in this book. I hate how the traders treat her for something she couldn't control. I love learning more about the kids powers each bo...

    This one's my favorite of the original quartet, and it never disappoints. From the magic the four learn, to the exposure we get to Trader culture... I love EVERYTHING in this book. I love the smithing, the mixing of magics, the weaving of magics, the MAP-WEAVING OF MAGICS, the introduc...

    3.75/5 So many warm, mushy feelings at the end! I'm enjoying this series more and more, and it's definitely improved a lot from the first book! The only problem I had at times was understanding/picturing the magic. I find Tris and Briar's Magic a lot easier to visualize just because...

    I think Daja is my favorite one of the bunch. Not only was the story interesting, but it also had a pretty dramatic plot. On the external level, the mages need to stop a series of fires. On the internal level, Daja has to come to terms with her role among her people. The characters are...

    Here's where the series starts taking the threads it's set out until now and making them into really interesting stories. I liked this a lot. This is Daja's book, but it's not just her story: it really is the story of their interrelated magics, and the strange things that happen as a r...

    The Circle books are written for a younger audience than many of Tamora Pierce's novels, but they are still excellent. Daja's Book, the third in the series, is almost an environmental message of a book. It is intense, more so than either of the volumes that precede it, and will keep re...

    I always loved the 3rd book of this quarter - in part because I love Daja, but also because I loved the resolution that she reaches with her past in this book. As always, I generally love the entire group and the growth of their relationships with each other (and the way their magic wo...

    From the worst in the series, to the best in the series, this one is definitely my favourite. I think this is better written than the others, probably because Tamora Pierce doesn't try to do as much and keep tract of as many different plot lines in this one. I enjoy reading about Daja'...

    I really loved this book. The only reason it's four stars instead of five stars is because I didn't connect at all with some of the magic used here- there are times of the kids being magically away from their bodies, and that completely takes me out of the experience of the book. Bu...

    Small disclaimer: Daja has always been my favourite. Not just my favourite in the series, and not just one of my favourite Tamora Piece characters, but a favourite all-time character. As a child I was so, so envious of her ability to work metal, and her skill combined with her tough...

    Pretty standard fare for this series. I continue to have difficulty imagining the magical workings. ...

    Thrilling and emotional and wonderful. These books are amazing. ...

    I love all the insight we get into Trader culture in this book, and all the new characters! Daja is amazing. Don't fuck with nature. Forest fires are serious business. ...

    Ugh, these audiobooks are great but they take so much longer to finish than a physical book, so by the time I'm writing the review the beginning is kinda faded. Anyway, finally reading this series continues to be a great idea. I love how this book really delves into Daja's feelings ...

    While Tris's Book was a little weak and closely followed the pattern of Sandry's Book, Daja's Book mixes things up and it definitely benefits from this. The group is journeying with Sandry's uncle, trying to help areas that have been hit hard by drought and failing crops. The change of...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, and Sandry are traveling Emelan with the Duke to see what they can do about the drought and subsequent famine that is plaguing the area. During this tour, Daja runs into a group of traders - people of the culture that shunned her after her entire family died at sea. ...

    Third in the Circle of Magic fantasy series for young middle-grade readers and revolving around four young friends tied together by magic. Daja's Book was nominated for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's Literature in 2000. Visit KD Did It Takes on Books for a chronologi...

    I'd forgotten how this whole series takes place in such a short period of time. This one is only 4 months after Sandry's Book. And then if I remember correctly, 4 years pass between Briar's Book and the Circle Opens quartet. Thoughts on relationships: for all Tamora Pierce has said ...

    This one had more depth than the others. The characters are maturing, and as a result, the writing is too. ...

    Sometimes the selection of audiobooks through my library (i.e., free audiobooks) are quite limited. Case in point. That said, this is the third --- yes, third book I've read in this series. Why? The reviews sounded great, and I think I like Tamora Pierce. I can't remember why I...

    :') :') :') ...

    The third book in a series is always a mystery sometimes the main characters become dull and boring...other times the book series begins to reveal the mysteries of the novel...reading this one changed your prospective on Daja and her beliefs as a Trader...one of the best moments in the...

    There's a lot to learn about Trader custom and ritual in this book. Daja encounters some Traders, and has to deal with them labeling her as an unclean outcast. It's pretty rough on her, though she does get the upper hand when she accidentally creates a living iron vine that they want t...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, Sandry, and their teachers have travelled to the Gold Ridge Mountains to see if they can help with the drought that?s been going on for three years. While there, they meet with a group of Traders. When Daja, once a Trader herself, creates something so amazing that ...

    I originally reviewed this book on my blog - The Cosy Dragon. For more recent reviews by me, please hop over there. Tris, Daja, Briar and Sandry are still great friends, and their magics are twining together just as well as before. Unfortunately, that means that plant mage Briar is ...

    Alright book three. This one contines to bring the four closer but also to seperate them selves into individuals again. This one is also about belonging, but it includes loss, and change and longing for a return of what is forever gone. I guess it's also about acceptance of what's new ...

    Even though this book's structure is very similar to the previous two books - character-heavy all throughout, minimal plot that reappears and intensifies close to the end - I felt this book muddled things a bit. It bit off probably more than it could chew, trying to balance Daja's pers...

    Daja, the third member of the Circle of Magic, was born into the Trader culture; nomadic merchants who live according to their own rules and customs. At the beginning of the series, ten-year-old Daja was the only survivor of a shipwreck which killed her entire family. Because of this, ...

    I love the part where she saves the trader caravan despite their treatment of her! Go Daja! Edit: Added detail I always feel bad for poor Daja in this book. I hate how the traders treat her for something she couldn't control. I love learning more about the kids powers each bo...

    This one's my favorite of the original quartet, and it never disappoints. From the magic the four learn, to the exposure we get to Trader culture... I love EVERYTHING in this book. I love the smithing, the mixing of magics, the weaving of magics, the MAP-WEAVING OF MAGICS, the introduc...

    3.75/5 So many warm, mushy feelings at the end! I'm enjoying this series more and more, and it's definitely improved a lot from the first book! The only problem I had at times was understanding/picturing the magic. I find Tris and Briar's Magic a lot easier to visualize just because...

    I think Daja is my favorite one of the bunch. Not only was the story interesting, but it also had a pretty dramatic plot. On the external level, the mages need to stop a series of fires. On the internal level, Daja has to come to terms with her role among her people. The characters are...

    Here's where the series starts taking the threads it's set out until now and making them into really interesting stories. I liked this a lot. This is Daja's book, but it's not just her story: it really is the story of their interrelated magics, and the strange things that happen as a r...

    The Circle books are written for a younger audience than many of Tamora Pierce's novels, but they are still excellent. Daja's Book, the third in the series, is almost an environmental message of a book. It is intense, more so than either of the volumes that precede it, and will keep re...

    I always loved the 3rd book of this quarter - in part because I love Daja, but also because I loved the resolution that she reaches with her past in this book. As always, I generally love the entire group and the growth of their relationships with each other (and the way their magic wo...

    From the worst in the series, to the best in the series, this one is definitely my favourite. I think this is better written than the others, probably because Tamora Pierce doesn't try to do as much and keep tract of as many different plot lines in this one. I enjoy reading about Daja'...

    Alright book three. This one contines to bring the four closer but also to seperate them selves into individuals again. This one is also about belonging, but it includes loss, and change and longing for a return of what is forever gone. I guess it's also about acceptance of what's new ...

    Even though this book's structure is very similar to the previous two books - character-heavy all throughout, minimal plot that reappears and intensifies close to the end - I felt this book muddled things a bit. It bit off probably more than it could chew, trying to balance Daja's pers...

    Daja, the third member of the Circle of Magic, was born into the Trader culture; nomadic merchants who live according to their own rules and customs. At the beginning of the series, ten-year-old Daja was the only survivor of a shipwreck which killed her entire family. Because of this, ...

    I love the part where she saves the trader caravan despite their treatment of her! Go Daja! Edit: Added detail I always feel bad for poor Daja in this book. I hate how the traders treat her for something she couldn't control. I love learning more about the kids powers each bo...

    This one's my favorite of the original quartet, and it never disappoints. From the magic the four learn, to the exposure we get to Trader culture... I love EVERYTHING in this book. I love the smithing, the mixing of magics, the weaving of magics, the MAP-WEAVING OF MAGICS, the introduc...

    3.75/5 So many warm, mushy feelings at the end! I'm enjoying this series more and more, and it's definitely improved a lot from the first book! The only problem I had at times was understanding/picturing the magic. I find Tris and Briar's Magic a lot easier to visualize just because...

    I think Daja is my favorite one of the bunch. Not only was the story interesting, but it also had a pretty dramatic plot. On the external level, the mages need to stop a series of fires. On the internal level, Daja has to come to terms with her role among her people. The characters are...

    Here's where the series starts taking the threads it's set out until now and making them into really interesting stories. I liked this a lot. This is Daja's book, but it's not just her story: it really is the story of their interrelated magics, and the strange things that happen as a r...

    The Circle books are written for a younger audience than many of Tamora Pierce's novels, but they are still excellent. Daja's Book, the third in the series, is almost an environmental message of a book. It is intense, more so than either of the volumes that precede it, and will keep re...

    I always loved the 3rd book of this quarter - in part because I love Daja, but also because I loved the resolution that she reaches with her past in this book. As always, I generally love the entire group and the growth of their relationships with each other (and the way their magic wo...

    Small disclaimer: Daja has always been my favourite. Not just my favourite in the series, and not just one of my favourite Tamora Piece characters, but a favourite all-time character. As a child I was so, so envious of her ability to work metal, and her skill combined with her tough...

    Pretty standard fare for this series. I continue to have difficulty imagining the magical workings. ...

    Thrilling and emotional and wonderful. These books are amazing. ...

    I love all the insight we get into Trader culture in this book, and all the new characters! Daja is amazing. Don't fuck with nature. Forest fires are serious business. ...

    Ugh, these audiobooks are great but they take so much longer to finish than a physical book, so by the time I'm writing the review the beginning is kinda faded. Anyway, finally reading this series continues to be a great idea. I love how this book really delves into Daja's feelings ...

    While Tris's Book was a little weak and closely followed the pattern of Sandry's Book, Daja's Book mixes things up and it definitely benefits from this. The group is journeying with Sandry's uncle, trying to help areas that have been hit hard by drought and failing crops. The change of...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, and Sandry are traveling Emelan with the Duke to see what they can do about the drought and subsequent famine that is plaguing the area. During this tour, Daja runs into a group of traders - people of the culture that shunned her after her entire family died at sea. ...

    Third in the Circle of Magic fantasy series for young middle-grade readers and revolving around four young friends tied together by magic. Daja's Book was nominated for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Children's Literature in 2000. Visit KD Did It Takes on Books for a chronologi...

    I'd forgotten how this whole series takes place in such a short period of time. This one is only 4 months after Sandry's Book. And then if I remember correctly, 4 years pass between Briar's Book and the Circle Opens quartet. Thoughts on relationships: for all Tamora Pierce has said ...

    This one had more depth than the others. The characters are maturing, and as a result, the writing is too. ...

    Sometimes the selection of audiobooks through my library (i.e., free audiobooks) are quite limited. Case in point. That said, this is the third --- yes, third book I've read in this series. Why? The reviews sounded great, and I think I like Tamora Pierce. I can't remember why I...

    :') :') :') ...

    The third book in a series is always a mystery sometimes the main characters become dull and boring...other times the book series begins to reveal the mysteries of the novel...reading this one changed your prospective on Daja and her beliefs as a Trader...one of the best moments in the...

    There's a lot to learn about Trader custom and ritual in this book. Daja encounters some Traders, and has to deal with them labeling her as an unclean outcast. It's pretty rough on her, though she does get the upper hand when she accidentally creates a living iron vine that they want t...

    Daja, Tris, Briar, Sandry, and their teachers have travelled to the Gold Ridge Mountains to see if they can help with the drought that?s been going on for three years. While there, they meet with a group of Traders. When Daja, once a Trader herself, creates something so amazing that ...

    I originally reviewed this book on my blog - The Cosy Dragon. For more recent reviews by me, please hop over there. Tris, Daja, Briar and Sandry are still great friends, and their magics are twining together just as well as before. Unfortunately, that means that plant mage Briar is ...

    Alright book three. This one contines to bring the four closer but also to seperate them selves into individuals again. This one is also about belonging, but it includes loss, and change and longing for a return of what is forever gone. I guess it's also about acceptance of what's new ...

    Even though this book's structure is very similar to the previous two books - character-heavy all throughout, minimal plot that reappears and intensifies close to the end - I felt this book muddled things a bit. It bit off probably more than it could chew, trying to balance Daja's pers...
