The Circle of Magic
The Circle of Magic universe has its roots in the medieval Middle East and Central Asia: a crossroads of cultures and peoples, where trade and the pursuit of knowledge bring four ends of a vast continent together. Beginning with Winding Circle Temple in the city of Summersea, four young people from very different walks of life come together for an education. And the fourth is a boy, reared on the streets as a thief, rescued from slave labor to discover he has magic with plants and the making of medicines. Together or apart, with their beloved teachers or new friends, the four always find new experiences, and new mages with talents even more unusual than their own! Set in a different universe than Tortall, this quartet centers around four unusual young mages.
Set in a different universe than Tortall , this quartet centers around four unusual young mages. Sandry, a noble whose parents died recently, has power with thread, from spinning and weaving to simple knot-tying. Daja, a Trader, is the only survivor of a shipwreck in which her family drowned. Declared to be bad luck and banned from life with other Traders, she is free to learn to work metals and, through metal, to work magic. Briar is a street rat, a thief and convict. Only at the temple city of Winding Circle does he learn that his strange love of growing things is more than a need to garden.
