Part of the 8-book Tamora Pierce reissue for Fall 2006, this title in the Circle Opens quartet features spellbinding new cover art. Coincides with the release of WILL OF THE EMPRESS in trade pb.Kethlun Warder was a gifted glassmaker until his world was shattered in a freak accident. Now his remaining glass magic is mixed with lightning, and Tris must teach him to control it (if she can teach him to control his temper first). But there's more at stake than Keth's education. With his strange magic, he creates glass balls that reflect the immediate past and expose the work of a murderer. If he can harness his power properly, he'll be able to see the crimes as they take place. Keth and Tris race against time, and the local authorities, to identify a killer who's living in plain sight.

Tris travels the world with her friend and mentor Niko Goldeneyes, trying to find a way to use her magic to help p...
I'd really like to give this one 3.5 stars, but I'll have to settle for 4. I wanted to indicate that I enjoyed this book much more than the others in the series. I read the first three in quick succession a year or so ago when I was home sick from work. The first was ok, if predictable, Sandy fin...
