Tris's Book is the second installment of the Circle of Magic quartet by Tamora Pierce. It was first published in 1998 and has since been translated in several other languages. The novel begins only ten days after the four young mages Sandrilene fa Toren, Trisana Chandler, Daja Kisubo, and Briar Moss survived an earthquake in Sandry's Book and it only covers the time span of a few days.
