When I was offered this book I was immediately interested, anything with fairies immediately draws my interest, especially when they weave in some of the different aspects of fairies. The Circle introduces us to Calum who is living with guilt over the disappearance of his cousin and who is trying to figure out his place in not only the world of the Sidhe but also in the human world. The story really gets going when he meets Lauren, a human girl.
A lot of the first half is world building and setting the story and characters, but in a first book in a series that is understandable. The second half of the book moves pretty quickly as we discover that the different events in their lives are likely tied together.
I’m eager to see where the rest of the series takes these characters and could definitely see how seemingly minor characters could play a larger part in future books.
The Circle is out now from Vulpine Press. Thanks again to them for offering me a copy of this book. Happy reading!
