Daja’s Book: Book 3 of Circle of Magic Quartet by Tamora Pierce
In the next segment of the Circle of Magic saga, Daja, Tris, Briar and Sandry and their teachers journey to the Golden Ridge mountains of northern Emelan, to help the people there deal with a severe drought.
Meanwhile the four young mage’s powers are combining in unpredictable ways. In one instance, Daja accidentally creates a living metal vine. A passing band of Traders expresses interest in buying it, and spending time with them, Daja becomes homesick for her own people and culture. As the threat of forest fire looms Daja and her friends face the challenge- and Daja also must decide where she belongs- with the Traders or at Winding Circle?
