We’re leaving Tortall and journeying to Emelan! Grace and Madeleine continue to explore the Tamora Pierce ouvre with Daja’s Book, number three in the Circle of Magic Quartet. Discussion ranges from the unique appeal of a slower-paced series to reasons why it’s so uncomfortable eating in front of strangers. Dive into Trader culture, narcissist mages and the deep bonds that form between young outcasts. Plus some parting words of wisdom: “this isn’t Captain Planet.”

Grace is also considering making a mini follow-up after she rereads Briar’s Book - let us know if that’s something you would be interested in hearing!
