The Circle’s power has lured her home …

Forced to move from sunny California to gloomy New England, Cassie longs for her old life. Even so, she feels a strange kinship to a terrifying group of teens who seem to rule her school. Initiated into the coven of witches that has controlled New Salem for hundreds of years, she’s drawn into the Secret Circle, a thrill that’s both intoxicating and deadly. But when she falls for the mysterious and intriguing Adam, Cassie must choose whether to resist temptation or risk dark forces to get what she wants—even if it means that one wrong move could ultimately destroy her.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of Smith’s Vampire Diaries series will find the same basic formula here: plenty of foreshadowing, lots of action, mild creepiness, and instant infatuation. Characterization is minimal, but those seeking lightweight, mildly scary, somewhat romantic titles will gobble this up and eagerly await the sequel.”

    " Goshdarnit WHY??!?!?!?!?!? LJ Smith is so good with that hatred of forbidden love thing. I swear, everything she writes makes me want to cry, I get so attached. "

    " Typical mediocre young adult fluff. I'm intrigued, but the writing itself isn't great. It reads like fanfiction, pandering to what the audience wants or thinks it wants. Take a gamble or two or ninety, L.J. Smith! "

    " My friend and I watched the TV series for kicks & giggles. I wanted to know what the books were like. Well, now I know and I can't take back the time I used to read the book. My advice: Watch the TV series if you like Teen Drama and leave the books alone in the dark & dusty places they belong. "

    " You see, I'm not a fan of LJ Smith or Vampire Diaries, but I was positively surprised by Secret Circle. It's not only because I love stories with witches (I love vampires too), but also because the story is more developed than VD, with characters better made. :D "
