Daja's Book - Circle of Magic 3 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Daja's Book - Circle of Magic 3

Similar to other books in the Circle of Magic series, this third book in the quartet is about four mages-in-training are the main characters. However it is now Daja Kisubo's turn to take the limelight. While traveling in the drought and fire-stricken Gold Ridge with fellow mage apprentices and their mentors, the young people's magical talents somehow become intertwined, leading Daja, who is linked to the element of fire and the craft of smithing, to construct a ostensibly living vine out of metal. Migrating Traders recognize this vine as a powerful object and take the complicated steps required to purchase it from Daja, who once has been a Trader herself but has been cast out by the Trader class as a young child when her family's ship sank. Under Trader customs, she is seen as a source of bad luck to be avoided at all costs. During the negotiations, she must come to terms with the part of her that still yearns for her past life, and her growing power as a mage. As in the previous books, the climax revolves around a natural disaster that requires the four new mages' powers working together to minimize its effects.
