The Circle Trilogy begins with an epic tale that breaks down the boundaries between reality and the otherworldly, while forging together the passions of the men and women caught in a battle for the fate of humanity…

In the last days of high summer, with lightning striking blue in a black sky, the sorcerer stood on a high cliff overlooking the raging sea…        

Belting out his grief into the storm, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith rails against the evil that has torn his twin brother from their family’s embrace. Her name is Lilith. Existing for over a thousand years, she has lured countless men to an immortal doom with her soul-stealing kiss. But now, this woman known as vampire will stop at nothing until she rules this world—and those beyond it…

Hoyt is no match for the dark siren. But his powers come from the goddess Morrigan, and it is through her that he will get his chance at vengeance. At Morrigan’s charge, he must gather five others to form a ring of power strong enough to overcome Lilith. A circle of six: himself, the witch, the warrior, the scholar, the one of many forms, and the one he’s lost. And it is in this circle, hundreds of years in the future, where Hoyt will learn how strong his spirit—and his heart—have become…

The house was tucked in the forest, because his grandmother—she who had passed power to him, and to a lesser extent, Cian—had wanted it so. It stood near a stream, a rise of stone with windows of real glass. And its gardens were his mother’s great pride. Her roses bloomed riotously. One of the servants hurried out to take his horse. Hoyt merely shook

logs. He used his own tongue, the language of his birth and blood to draw the fire into a dance. Some part of him knew he was showing off, drawing out the moment and the drama. With a billow of smoke, a hiss of flame, the images began to form in the flames. Shadows and movement, shapes and silhouettes. Now he forgot all but the magic and the purpose, all but the need and the power. He felt Glenna move closer—in body and in mind. In magic. In the flames, the shapes and silhouettes became. A

Wait,” Glenna ordered as Moira spun around to leave. “Just wait. I am shaking, and short-tempered with it. Just wait. If I seemed calm before it’s because that’s the way it works for me. Handle the crisis, then fall apart. This is the falling apart portion of our program. But what I said goes, Moira. “Just as what you said in there goes. We need him. You’re going to have to start thinking of him, and treating him like a person instead of a thing.” “They tore her to pieces.” Moira’s eyes filled

butterflies, the hum of bees? It had been their place, he thought, more than any other. He’d grown to a man and had found his place on the cliff in what was now called Kerry. He’d built his stone cabin, and found the solitude he’d needed for his own harvest, for his magic. But he’d always come back home. And had always found pleasure and solace with his mother here, in her herb garden. Now, he stood over where it had been as he might have a grave, mourning and remembering. A flare of anger

Felt like a bleeding earthquake.” He studied the garden. “Your work, I assume,” he said to Hoyt. “No.” The bitterness from the wound inside him eked out. “My mother’s.” “Well, next time you’ve a bit of landscaping in mind, let me know so I don’t wonder if the house is coming down on my ears.
