In this fantasy, the listener gets drawn into a scenario in which sorcerers with powerful magic learn to defend themselves and their temple from evil pirates. The full cast is effective in portraying this unique world. Each voice is distinct and matches its character well. The mages, or teachers, are calm and wise, and the young mages, or students, are typical teens trying to control their impulsive natures. Because this is the second in a series, the relationships among the characters are a bit difficult to understand at first. But the mission is clear - the young friends must band together to defeat evil.
Working closely with their teachers, the mages Niko, Lark, Frostpine, and Rosethorn, the four youngsters move ever more deeply into their magic as they help to fend off the escalating attacks.
But how deep is too deep?
Packed with humor, magic, fantasy, and thrilling action scenes, Tris's Book vividly demonstrates why Tamora Pierce is America's most popular writer of young adult fantasy.
Follow the adventures of all the young mages-in-training with Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic series.

"[Tamora] Pierce has created another gripping adventure that's sure to please her many fans." (School Library Journal)
"A cut above many fantasies for the age group." (Booklist)
This is the 2nd book in the Circle of Magic quartet and picks up just days after the 1st book (Sandry's Book - also available on Audible) left off. I recommend that you listen to the books in order as there is a natural progression in the relationships and plots in the stories. My whole family, girls and boys/kids and adults, like these books and Full Cast Audio makes them very fun to listen to.
For me it is not the genre, but the skill of the writer to make me laugh, cry, to let me fade into their words and lose myself in the story.
