I downloaded this audiobook as an avid reader of Pierce's many series. I had never listened to an audiobook before but I am certainly in awe of the way that I was drawn in and simply could not stop listening. With Evvy and Rosethorn returning for the audiobook and small mentions of the other characters readers may remember littered throughout, the audiobook also introduced many new and lovable characters.
I recommend this audiobook to anyone familiar with Tamora Pierce's work and also anyone unfamiliar, as one can easily pick up what is happening and get the gist of the unique universe that Pierce has created. This really is a lively, active, and thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.
I believe that children, young adults, and adults alike (as I am myself) would find this just as fantastic as I did. Particularly loveable was the snarky but kind Rosethorn, the wise Luvo. The adventure of Evvy was exciting and it was great to see her develop from immaturity to a young woman willing to take on responsibility. I have now fallen in love with Evvy just as I did the original four 'Circle' members of The Circle of Magic and The Circle Opens.
