Blurbs for The Circle

“What a stunning novel. Raw, real, smart, very thrilling and very, very wicked. The Circle is Twilight by way of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
Lev Grossman, bestselling author of The Magicians

“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, bestselling author of Available Dark and Waking the Moon

“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, bestselling author of The Fever and Dare Me

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, bestselling author of Let the Right One In
