Circle of Stones

Cover: 'Circle of Stones'

Staff Review: "Circle of Stones" by Catherine Fisher


Sulis, a teenage girl being handed off to another set of new foster parents, arrives in Bath, England, ready to leave the past behind her. Within minutes, she is already nervously looking over her shoulders at every opportunity. Linked with her story is that of Zac, the assistant to the man who aims to invent the world's first circular street, King's Circus, in which Sulis lives in the future. Also interlaced with these two stories is the creator of the city of Bath, a druid king who discovers the healing powers of the water. I found these stories particularly interesting because I've been to Bath, England, but if I hadn't spent a weekend there in 'real life' I'm not sure I would have enjoyed this book as much as I did. Either way, I really loved delving into Sulis's past, and finding out who she was constantly watching for, and what in her past had brought her to Bath.
