The heart-stopping conclusion to the internationally bestselling Engelsfors Trilogy
Praised by Lev Grossman as “stunning... and very, very wicked,” The Circle, Book One of the Engelsfors Trilogy, introduced six teenage girls with supernatural powers who became the Chosen Ones, destined to fight against the ultimate evil. By the end of the second book, Fire, only four girls remain — the last defense against the mysterious, demonic forces that have been plaguing Engelsfors.
Minoo, Anna-Karin, Vanessa and Linnéa are still coming to terms with Ida's death when evil strikes again, barely a month after the showdown in the school gym. They have no chance to recover, and no choice but to rally together to try to prevent the apocalypse — even while their personal dramas threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, Ida may be dead, but she is by no means gone. Stuck between the living and the dead, she must find a way to aid her fellow Chosen Ones from beyond the grave.
The final installment of the Engelsfors Trilogy — an international sensation with rights sold in twenty-nine countries — The Key combines thrilling action and dark magic with all the passion and drama of teen life.
