Product Details


“Everything about The Heart of the Circle is fresh and bright and joyful, even the hard parts. It’s beautifully, artistically, artfully written, and it’s entirely worth your time.”
– Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of October Daye and InCryptid

“The best speculative fiction pushes the boundaries of real life to make a point; Landsman’s novel in which the members of a group are persecuted—and killed—for their differences as they are blamed for others’ problems does just that in a masterful show of skill and understanding of the possibilities of the genre.”
– Booklist

“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.”
– Israel Hayom

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.”
– Saloona

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

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

“Landsman’s novel is exceptionally paced and full of intriguing characters and concepts”
– Grimdark Magazine 

“unusual and compelling English-language debut.”
– B&N Sci Fi & Fantasy Blog
