Four mages. One destiny. No turning back. New York Times bestselling author Tamora Pierce's masterful novel is now available in paperback

Daja, Briar, Tris, and Sandry have grown up and grown apart since their days together at Winding Circle, and Sandry's especially disappointed with the change. When Sandry's uncle requests that her three old friends accompany her on a visit to Sandry's vast lands within the Empire of Namorn, the young mages discover that they've landed in a trap. Namorn's iron-willed Empress has plans for Sandry and her companions, and she has wily and powerful mages to help her. But so, of course, does Sandry - if only she can get them to work together . . .

Will I have to order on inter-library loan to get an in-the-hand book?

Another VERY good story cleverly woven by a Mage story-teller, Tamora Pierce.

I read this book, super good, it was cool to see how the four got back together. but there was some weird stuff in it, i'm not too bothered by most of my friends are. if you get easily creeped out, I would not get this book. However, if you're like me and are willing to have that stuff to get a good book, go right ahead!

The four from the earlier Winding Circle quartets reunite, a little older, wiser, and more independent. Can they still work together, and do they want to?

Sexual Content: As the foursome become more mature, there is some content about gay/lesbian as well as sex, unlike the original winding circle quartets, which were more appropriate.
