Six high school girls are fated to create the perfect circle of witches to defeat an ancient supernatural evil in the spellbinding first installment of the Engelsfors Trilogy

On a night after the apparent suicide of high school student Elias Malmgren, a blood-red moon fills the night sky. Minoo wakes up outside her house, still in her pajamas, and is drawn by an invisible force to an abandoned theme park on the outskirts of town. Soon five of her class-mates — Vanessa, Linnéa, Anna-Karin, Rebecka and Ida — arrive, compelled the same force. A mystical being takes over Ida’s body and tells them they are fated to fight an ancient evil that is hunting them. The park is a safe haven; the school, a place of danger. The six are wildly dif-ferent and definitely not friends... but they are the Chosen Ones.

As the weeks pass, each practices her special power; Vanessa can become invisible; Anna-Karen, the most popular girl in school, discovers her gift for mind control; Rebecka can light fires through magic. Minoo’s power is yet to be revealed. They are not all firmly committed to their mission — to discover the truth about Elias’s death. But then there is a second death, of one of their circle... Now determined to fight the evil forces, they start to learn magic from The Book of Patterns, an ancient work with a will of its own that reveals different things to different witches.

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 flirtation with dangerous forces and ancient magic. An international sensation with rights sold in 24 countries, The Circle is razor-sharp and remarkable from start to finish.
