Magic Steps by Tamora Pierce

Description: Lady Sandrilene Fa Toren knows all about unusual magic-she herself spins and weaves it like thread. But when she witnesses a boy dancing a spell, even she is confounded. To her dismay, Sandry learns that as the mage who discovered the power of the young dancer, she must be his teacher.

Before the lessons can begn, however, Sandry and her uncle, Duke Vedris, get news of amysterious murderer stalking a clan of local merchants. The killer employs the strangest magic of all: the abiliy to reduce essence to nothingness.

As the murders mount and the killer grows bolder, Sandry's teaching takes on a grave new purpose. For it becomes clear to everyone that the killings can only be stopped by the combined magical workings of two people: the young teacher and her even younger student.

Also in this series are Street Magic, Cold Fire, Shatterglass Return to the Tamora Pierce page.
