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.
Seven teenage witches are hunted by an ancient evil. The first in Seven teenage witches are hunted by an ancient evil. The second in the gripping Engelsfors Trilogy featuring THE CHOSEN ONES.
"The Circle is a gift for those of us who love Buffy. It is impossible to put down and I cannot wait for 2012 when the sequel, Fire, is released" QX "You long for the sequel even before you have finished the book." -- National Swedish Newspaper Eskilstuna Kuriren "What a stunning novel. Raw, real, smart, very thrilling and very, very wicked.

This is going to be BIG" -- National Swedish Newspaper Dagens Nyheter "Let's not call The Circle Sweden's most talked-about young adult novel right now, but simply Sweden's most famous book right now." -- National Swedish Newspaper Goteborgsposten
