I am re-reading The Circle of Magic series. It’s been years since my last reading and I love it just as much as I ever have. However, I am feeling like I’m losing my mind.
I have a very prominent memory of a chapter or part of a chapter where the teachers (Niko, Lark, Rosethorn) find out about the thread circle that has part of their magic in it.
The scene I remember, I believe, is after the earthquake. Niko and everyone are grilling the kids on how they lived and all that and sandry shows them the circle and Niko touches it and drops it or is blinded by it or something and all the other teachers gasp that “it cannot be” “they are only children” and all the normal stuff that gets said about them. Niko calls the circle something very specific and says it is very dangerous and takes it from them.
I assumed it was in the first quartet, but I read them and never got to it. Then I hoped it was in the second and I knew that wasn’t right because they weren’t together. I am almost finished with The Will of the Empress and I know that they are going to absorb the circle into their palms by the end of it. So I don’t think it’s in this book.
If anyone knows what I’m talking about I’d be forever grateful for the knowledge. I feel like I slipped into an alternate dimension or something...
