Reading The Circle is like watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the very first time. Translated from the Swedish, this is an amazing fantasy trilogy, well-loved by authors like Lev Grossman. Filled with teen witches, dark magic, demons, and of course, high school. Cinematic, atmospheric, and a thoughtful in-depth look at issues facing teens: identity, love, trust, friendship. The Circle brings plenty of twists and turns, a thrilling read that leaves you guessing until the very end. 

— From Staff Picks - Becca


In this gripping first installment of The Engelsfors Trilogy, a parallel world emerges in which teenage dreams, insanely annoying parents, bullying, revenge, and love collide with dangerous forces and ancient magic. An international sensation with rights sold in 26 countries, The Circle is razor-sharp and remarkable from start to finish.
