One by one the Guardians fall and a race is on for Alex to go find the wizard with a secret regarding the curious symbol on the golden band.

What awaits Alex in the Forest of Factors? Can Archimedes solve the equation in time? Can the Guardians stop this invincible challenger?
A symbol unknown, a riddle unsolved, a maze guarded by a monster, a race against time to find the secrets of the Circulus de Potentia and the most precious thing in the world.
Circulus de Potentia is a compelling, entertaining fantasy novel that kept me intrigued and entertained from beginning to end. Circulus de Potentia is book two in the Magicae Mathematica series, book one, Libellus de Numeros was sensational and made me fall in love with fantasy all over again!

Circulus de Potentia follows the same characters the reader has grown to love in book one.

Along her journey in the first book, she meets a whimsical wizard called Archimedes and together, they make an incredible duo. As well as this, she learns a great deal from him which will prove useful. In book two we will reunite with Alex as she begins a tumultuous journey to learn more about the golden circle as well as a mysterious jewel which could change everything. The premise of this novel is just this, but please know book lovers that it is more brilliant than I could ever express!
