A Gotham Writers' Young Adult Novel Discovery Contest Top Six Finalist. “Since I was a little girl I’ve been labeled a freak in my small town. There’s no blending in when your mom practices an ancient pagan religion and everyone believes she’s a witch. On my 15th birthday my secret wish is the same as always – to just be normal. But that’s not what I get. Not even close.” – Brigit Quinn Instead, Brigit is shocked to learn she’s descended from a legendary Celtic tribe - powerful people who serve as guardians of the stone circles of Ireland. A spellbound book of family history reveals the magical powers of her ancestors. Powers that could be hers - if only she wanted them. And when someone sinister and evil returns to steal her family’s strength, Brigit has to make a decision. Fight to keep her unique heritage or reject it for the normal life she’s always wanted. This contemporary coming-of-age novel will appeal to teen (and adult) readers who enjoy stories of magic steeped in the mysticism surrounding the standing stone circles of Ireland.

As an avid reader who is generally opposed to writing reviews and to spoilers in said reviews; I had no choice but to write one for Circle of Nine - Beltany -- I loved it! I have read hundreds of books and I have yet to encounter a book like this one! The spellbinding contrast between modern day and historical vignettes intricately weaves a path of intrigue that kept me on the edge of my seat. Circle of Nine - Beltany is well written with rich characters, great plot and sub-plots that make it a quick read. I can't wait to see what Biel delivers next!!
