Title: Rise of a Merchant Prince

Author: Raymond E. Feist

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 479

Summary: I sadly didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. I was very excited to be reading about Roo as I took a liking to him in the first book; however, throughout, his treatment of other characters grated very much on my nerves and I started to really dislike him. It wasn't bad at all, and I am still liking the series, though. For the most part, it was a good read.

Rating: 3.5/5
Title: Shadow of a Dark Queen

Author: Raymond E. Feist

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 560

Summary: I really enjoyed this, especially the beginning. I was very much hooked almost all the way through. The characters were interesting and likeable (especially Roo and Sho Pi) and I really wanted to know what happened next. I look forward to reading the further 3 in the series, and learning more about this. It was great picking up another Raymond E. Feist book. I enjoy his stories.

Rating: 4/5

#4 - Shatterglass by Tamora Pierce

Title: Shatterglass

Author: Tamora Pierce

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 357

Summary: I enjoyed this one. I loved trying to guess who The Ghost was, and I could not pick it until it actually happened, which I liked. Although this followed a similar plot to the previous three, I found this to be more enjoyable and a little different. Although I didn't like Tris all that much in the past series, I liked her in this. She became more likeable, and by the end was an enjoyable character. Although a little whiny, Keth was a good character, too, but my favourite was definitely Dema.

Rating: 4/5

#3 - Cold Fire by Tamora Pierce

Title: Cold Fire

Author: Tamora Pierce

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 355

Summary: I really enjoyed the third installment in this quartet. The setting was lovely, and gave a very nice feel of the cold winter and the ice and snow. I enjoyed the Bancanors and the twins Daja was teaching meditation. Of the three so far, this would definitely have to be my favourite.

Rating: 4/5

#2 - Street Magic by Tamora Pierce

Title: Street Magic

Author: Tamora Pierce

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 293

Summary: Briar is my favourite character of the quartet, so I was very excited to be reading his book. I always enjoyed reading his personality. His thought process was always amusing.
Once again, Tamora Pierce has impressed me. She creates a world which is both enjoyable and easy to read, and I found myself taking in every word. What I wished for (like in book one) was interaction between the quartet, and I feel that is what is missing for this series.
However, nonetheless, most enjoyable anyway, and I look forward to be reading the following 2 books.

Rating: 3.5/5

# 1 - Magic Steps by Tamora Pierce



Title: Magic Steps

Author: Tamora Pierce

Genre: Fantasy

Pages: 264

Summary: It was fantastic to be drawn back into this wonderful world of Tamora Pierce. This whole Circle series I have read out of order as I was first unaware when I picked up The Will of the Empress that there was in fact 8 books before that. I then managed to get my hands open on the first quartet, and finally the second.
I read this, keeping in mind that it was aimed at a younger audience than myself. Tamora Pierce has such a way of captivating the reader, and I really love the world she has created. I confess, I was a bit sad to see the other three protagonists non-existent in this book, but am comforted to know they each get their own, so I look forward to reading it.
I was happy with this book, and I wanted it to go longer. It was such a nice read for the young adults this was aimed at. I eagerly await to read the next 3.
