A novel by

 
 
One night, when a strange red moon fills the sky, six school girls find themselves in an abandoned theme park, drawn there by a mysterious force. A student has just been found dead. Everyone suspects suicide. Everyone - except them.

In that derelict fairground an ancient prophecy is revealed. They are The Chosen Ones, a group of witches, bound together by a power, one which could destroy them all. But they soon learn that despite their differences they need each other in order to master the forces that have been awakened within them.

High school is now a matter of life and death. Because the killing has only just begun.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Praise for this book

"The Circle ensnares you from the start, with all the epic mayhem and darkness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and with teen characters as rich and nuanced as any reader could hope for. It’s an utterly convincing world, and a resonant one, and we find ourselves wanting to follow its heroes anywhere." - Megan Abbott

"A stunning novel...very thrilling and very, very wicked. The Circle is Twilight by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." - Lev Grossman

"A beautiful, frightening, empowering novel reminiscent of the best of Scott Westerfeld or Anne Rice, The Circle puts its mismatched heroines--and readers--at the center of an ancient conspiracy of magic as terrifying as it is realistic. Enthralling from start to finish." - Elizabeth Hand

"The Circle is a story about group dynamics, identity, and finding one’s place in the world. Like all great books, it’s about how people handle the difficult task of becoming human beings, together with other human beings." - John Ajvide Lindqvist
