The Circle: Book One of The Sidhe by Cindy Cipriano – Review



Calum Ranson is sure of three things: his cousin Finley is alive, Calum will find him, and no one knows Calum and his family are Sidhe. No one until Laurel shows up at his mother’s bookstore wearing a dark clan’s mark.

When Calum learns the details surrounding the disappearance of Laurel’s brother, he suspects the evil Hobayeth clan. Calum and Laurel work together in the Realm of Man and the Otherworld to rescue her brother – revealing a connection between Calum and Laurel that may cost Finley his life.

My Review:

A short story with a great ending, this is definitely a YA book for your teen. The protagonist is 11-12 (not quite sure, but he is going into yr 6 at the beginning of the story). He’s written as a lot more mature, which means that the reader will find it much easier to empathise with him, unlike other YA that just makes the kids seem bratty.

While the ending of the story is a bit predictable if you’ve read as many fantasy books as I have, the journey is still a fun ride, and you’ll enjoy the trip with me.

I recommend you read this (or give it to your kids to read). There doesn’t really seem to be an age restriction on the story, which can only be a plus.
