Courtesy of Teens Read Too,
This review is from: Melting Stones (Circle Reforged) (Paperback)
Evvy left the streets of Chammur four years ago and began training as a stone mage. Now, she's fourteen and on her way to the Battle Islands to help her mentor, Rosethorn, figure out why the plants and animals are dying.
Evvy is supposed to listen and learn, but ends up playing a much bigger role when she discovers the real reason for the Island's troubles. With the help of her friend, Luvo (the living stone heart of a mountain), Evvy must find a way to stop the destruction and save the island.
Though the plot was somewhat predictable for me, I thoroughly enjoyed reading MELTING STONES because of the characterization. Evvy is a brilliant character I couldn't help but fall in love with, and the ending left me yearning for more.
I hadn't read any of Pierce's novels before, but after MELTING STONES, I've added a couple of her other books to my reading list.
