The Magic Circle

A Novel

A female scientist races to save the world using prophecies from before Christ’s time in this thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Eight
 
In the last week of Jesus’s life, the Emperor Augustus orders the purge of all prophecies that question his divine power. Thus, in the crater of a dormant volcano, the books of the Sibylline oracle are sealed—lost to the world until the nineteenth century when Clio, a brilliant archaeologist, discovers them. The Sibyl’s words remain as potent as ever, having the ability to change the destiny of mankind. But who will be bold enough to harness their power?
 
More than a century after their discovery, some of the secret prophecies fall into the hands of nuclear scientist Ariel Behn when her beloved cousin is assassinated. If Ariel can discover the mystery behind the prophecies, she will be able to prevent a potentially worldwide catastrophe—but in order to do so she must travel to Russia, Vienna, and Paris where too many people are desperate to protect the secrets of these ancient writings.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Katherine Neville including rare images from her life and travels.
Rezension
“A page-turner . . . A cerebral caper that crosses a thriller with a romance and a mystical quest.” —TheSeattle Times
 
“Never a dull moment . . . Neville’s book churns up wave after wave of excitement.” —TheNew York Times Book Review on A Calculated Risk
 
“Filled with intrigue . . . Neville keeps the novel moving at a fast pace. . . . Ariel is not a super spy but an average woman dealing with complex situations with only her wit to combat dangers. She is smart and funny and uses both these traits to survive.” —The Denver Post
 
“Exciting . . . Suspenseful . . . Many layers of plot twists.” —Library Journal
 
“[A] racing-across-the-globe, one-step-ahead-of-the-bad-guys treasure hunt.” —Detroit Free Press
