The drums of war are beating . . .

Mages Briar, Rosethorn, and Evvy are visiting the mystical mountain kingdom of Gyongxe when they are suddenly called away. The emperor of Yanjing has invited them to see his glorious gardens. During their brief stay, though, the mages see far more than splendid flowers. They see the emperor's massive army, his intense cruelty, and the devastating magic that keeps his power in place.

When the mages discover the emperor's plans to invade Gyongxe, they race to protect its treasured temples. But duty, magic, and terror threaten to drive them apart. With time running out, can the mages come together to save their spiritual home?

Eastern twist on mages and fantasy worlds
Rating 
 
5.0

 I read this book a few months ago and it is getting late tonight so I will give a simple abbreviated review here.



Battle Magic is the story of earth and plant mages that travel to another region and end up fighting in a large battle.  If you think that plant and earth mages are not very powerful, you would be wrong.  There are some excellent battle scenes in this book but what makes the book so enjoyable is the characters.  You get to know two plant mages.  One is a young man who really likes meeting young women but also is both a powerful battle mage and also a healing mage.  He is willing to exhaust himself in order to do both jobs.  You also are introduced to a very powerful young earth mage and another plant mage that cares for the earth mage girl.



If you haven't read a book by Tamora Pierce and you like the fantasy genre I suggest that give one of her books a try. I rate this book five out of five stars for the excellent character development and interesting action because who can beat reading about mages using their unique powers in a gigantic battle?
