Magic Steps, being the first of the series [The Circle Opens] sequeling Tamora Pierce's earlier quartet, The Circle Of Magic, brings you into a world of adventure, weaved with magic and spells and mages, creating a journey into the heart of every reader. It takes you onto the path of loss, defeat, victory, and a new beginning. Tamora continues to astound readers everywhere with her writing that gives stories depth, characters life, and the readers a treasure in words.

Sandry takes on her first student. Murder, magic and a nice touch of humor at just the right times.

The beginning of a new Circle of Magic series. In this first book, Sandray - the thread mage - finds a boy who dances magic. Because she is the mage to discover his talent, she must teach him. Together, they must find a way to stop killers who murder with nothing magic. A decent addition to the Circle world.

Lady Sandilene, now living with her uncle the duke, discovers a magical lad who thinks he has no gift. It is quite a specialized power. It is the magic of dance. No teacher could be found but something must be done to contain the magic oozing out of Pasco. Sandry teaches him meditation and the control of power. She also hires him a dance teacher. Each movement is a word or language thus it is a spell for Pasco.Pasco is not her only concern. With the duke's health precarious, she must help him find certain killers lurking in the city. They use dark magic that literally eats them from inside out. It is the worse kind of magic and the most deadly too. I like this book and its concepts. The writing seems to evolve from Tamora Peirce's previous quartet. I enjoyed this book more.

This is the first of a four book series, which is itself a sequel to a previous four book series. This novel works as a stand-alone tale, however it resides in very rich fantasy world, and knowledge of the other books will add to its depth. As it is, it is a fast paced, almost slight tale. The hero faces little challenge and the antagonist is dealt with swiftly and predictably. The notion of magic cast by dancing is an interesting and fresh one, but ultimately the story may be a little too slight for all but the most dedicated Pierce fans.
