A complicated world

by Ellyb on Dec 21, 2008

Now for Daja's turn to explore the world outside of Winding Circle temple. This book succeeds on many levels; Daja finds herself face to face with darker, more complex works of hate and evil than any she and her foster-siblings encountered in the first Circle series. Daja also has the added complications of a personal betrayal. No longer are the bad guys separated "out there;" when one's acquaintances and friends begin to prove that they too can succumb to the less noble aspects of human behavior, it is time to grow up fast. While I zeroed in on the culprit fairly quickly, I believe that Pierce designed her plot that way. It's not so much a whodunit as an examination of the psychology of a killer, and in a YA novel, no less. Every installment of the Circle universe seems to get darker, but it also gets deeper as the four protagonists get older and go out into the broader world, so I count it as a good thing.
