I loved this book. Just the right amount of action, drama, and romance to make it a brilliant read.

pierce steps it up a notch in this book. it is definitely worth your money, especially if you've enjoyed her other circle of magic/circle opens books.

I didn't know it existed until i got it from somebody. I was really excited because I like the previous ones in the series. I loved this one! I couldn't stop reading it. All the characters are really grown up so this book is a little more sophisticated.

I enjoyed reading the book very much and did recommend it to my little cousin. It shows how insecurites do arrise but if you follow your instincts and have confidence to do whats right you will get through your problems, whatever they may be.

I love this book so much and i highly respect her for what she did with this book. You dont find many books like this where there is a gay character...or two, and im glad she did that, i hope she keeps writing these books

I loved this book and have shared it with all of my friends and they loved it also. I hope Tamara Piece will continue writing about Tris, Sandry, Daja Briar, and the rest of the characters. In this book, Tris, Sandry, Daja, and Briar are reunited and are visiting Sanry's cousin, the Empress of Namorn. You will find out how the four mages are behaving after their trips to different places. They end up joining forces to battle with the evil empress. I recommend that you read The Circle of Magic, The Circle opens, and then begin with The Will of the Empress and after, Melting Stones. This book is a wonderful book to read any time. I also reccomend people to read this ages 12 and up or for young adults.

This book it truly fabulous. I must say Tamora Pierce has outdone herself yet again. I always feel like I am a part of sandry, daja, briar, and tris' lives when i read this book, and i must say that it was hard for me to accept that this was the last story when it ended. Even though i wish and wish and wish there could be more stories i dont think they would be the same now that the little kids have grown up. Even though they have changed their personalities are the same and this book is incrediable. It is suspensful and every time a character was upset, i was upset, i felt what they felt and i still cant bear to think that this might be the last book. I recommend it for all but i do say that it is not appropriate for children, so bear that in mind before you buy it.

The book was great! By far it was the best book out of all the circle series. It started to get a little boring in the middle, but the ending was much better than I expected!

Sandry, Tris, Daja and Briar are all together again but things are not the same. It makes sense, they've been apart for over a year and experienced different things. I can't say I loved this book but it wasn't bad either.

Will of the Empress is a good start to the new Circle series. Like all Tamara Pierce novels it is well written with fun and quirky characters who know what they want and go get it. As an adult reader the circle series seem a little younger in tone then some of Pierces other series, but they are all still worth the read. If you are new to Pierce I would not start here as you are missing a lot of back story, but when you finally get to reading this one you'll like it a lot.

I like it and I don't. It's noticeably better than the other Circle books, but has a lot of the same flaws - too many separate stories going on at once, with not enough time to focus on any one of them. And the final conflict, the climax of the story, is a bit of a let-down.

Simply put, this is my favorite in all the series.

Endearing characters explore sexuality in a  fantasy realm devoid of moral absolutes.  Warning, this is NOT a children's book!  Pagan religion and lesbian relationships encouraged in a sympathetic manner in obvious attempt to desensitize reader.
