Publisher Comments:

When her cousin is slain by an unknown assassin, Ariel Behn becomes the sole heir to a family legacy: a sinister cache of manuscripts that thrusts her into the deadly center of international intrigue--and an age-old enigma that spans the centuries. Whoever assembles and interprets the cryptic clues of this ancient mystery will possess the power to control the fate of the world.

What strange powers lie hidden within the manuscripts? Splashed against a lavish backdrop that sweeps from the rise of the Roman Empire to the fall of the Berlin Wall, THE MAGIC CIRCLE finds one woman standing at the center of it all: Ariel Behn. As she races across continents to reveal the dark secrets buried in her family's past, she begins to unlock the chilling truth of the coming millennium. . . .

I had such high hopes for The Magic Circle. It was my first exposure to Katherine Neville, who had been represented to me as a highly intelligent storyteller. Yes, I believe she is, BUT her story here could be an outline for a series of maybe 10 or 12 novels. She takes on subjects of aryan supremacy, nazi secrets, Russian spies, Roman and Greek mythology, ancient geologic mysticism, runes --- all within a sketchy plot of murder, romance, suspense and globe-hopping. The author shows off her vast knowledge of several subjects, but the novel just didn't need all that. The whole thing was choppy, contrived, boring, confusing and completely unsatisfying. I'll give her an A for character development.

Katherine Neville is a truly gifted writer. Her books are well researched, paced to keep you turning the pages, and are definitely more "literate" than the offerings of most authors in this genre. If you thought the DaVinci Code was good, you'll think Magic Circle is great. After you read this one...try her book "The Eight". It's amazing!
