Review: The Broken Circle by Cheryl Potter is book one of the Potluck Yarn Trilogy.
The Broken Circle takes place in the "Middlelands," a place full of war and fear. The Potluck Witches, who put their magic into their yarn and the clothes they make from it, are persecuted, but a growing darkness motivates them to join together to summon their magic to fight evil and save their world.
Although I sometimes felt like some deeper explaining was needed, there were times in this book where I was partially interested. Even though I didn't enjoy The Broken Circle, I'm sure that a girl would be interested in reading it. Like I said before, I found The Broken Circle confusing at times. Such as the beginning, I didn't know who any of the characters were and why they were significant to the plot, in fact, at times I didn't really understand the plot. The author didn't explain these two very well. However, as the book progressed, I began to slowly understand. I would defiantly not recommend this book to any of my friends, because the style is more for teen girls. However, when the crystals were thrown in the air, I almost felt as if I was there. So in the end, The Broken Circle wasn't the perfect book for me, but would most likely be enjoyed by other audiences.
