  • Folklore, Fantasy and Fairies.

    Firstly, I love the combination of folklore and fantasy. I didn't know anything about the Sidhe prior to reading The Circle so I've learned something new from reading this book. The opening provides a sense of mystery with Finley's disappearance. I liked the talent of mind reading all adult Sidhe possessed and how Calum was yet to develop this ability.

    Secondly, I like how they work together and the whole friendship and bonding that goes on throughout the book. I liked the good friends theme very much! I'm intrigued by the "legend" of the Sidhe fairies. I think weaving in a family secret, missing cousin, and the issue of trust brings a deeper storytelling to the readers.

    I think this is a fantastic start to a fabulous series. I congratulate Cindy Cipriano for producing such a wonderful debut novel. I would recommend this book to middle school grade or even older readers who like folklore, fantasy and fairies. I enjoyed it! I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
