Product Details


“You don’t have to dig too deeply to uncover the real world parallels to xenophobia and intolerance in this unusual and compelling English-language debut.”
– B&N Sci Fi & Fantasy Blog

“A fascinating and original urban fantasy… Landsman demonstrates virtuoso writing ability, building a fascinating plot, an impressive combination of sources of inspiration and rare emotional depth, which make reading a sweeping experience and the book suitable not only for fans of fantasy and science fiction but for every reader.”
Israel Hayom

“A bold new voice in Israeli fantasy… an enchanting debut.” 
– Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winning author of Osama and Central Station

The Heart of the Circle is an important step forward for the Israeli genre scene, and in its portrait of young people struggling with both their outsized emotions and an unjust situation, it delivers a powerful, engrossing story.”
– Abigail Nussbaum, author of Asking the Wrong Questions

“Keren Landesman did not write a good book, she wrote an excellent book.”

“Oh wow. Wow, this book. How am I supposed to write anything now?”
– N.S. Dolkart, author of the GODSERFS trilogy

“Her skill with the world-building of this alternate reality is masterful and I found myself drawn into the sociopolitical and geopolitical aspects of this novel… This is the perfect subject to examine during such turbulent times, and I can only encourage more writers to follow her path… Landsman’s novel is exceptionally paced and full of intriguing characters and concepts”
– Grimdark Magazine
