I thought it was interesting to read and Neville obviously did her homework and did a lot of research — however, her writing skill cannot quite keep up with the picture she is trying to draw. Meetings with various members of Ariel’s extremely convoluted family tree result in walls of dense exposition which makes for very slow going — I took nearly two weeks to read the pages of this book, compared to the days it takes me to read a thousand-page brick of a book by Brandon Sanderson or Robert Jordan.
Maybe fans of Twilight would enjoy it. The plot is chaotic mess.

I wanted to like this book, and while I was not expecting literary genius, this was just bad.
May 23, Pili rated it it was amazing. However, it was a challenging book to read. The story tried to accomplish too much and ended up grossing me out and irritating me by dishonoring history, especially the holocaust, all at once.
In the yearAriel Behn, a toxic materials expert at a remote nuclear site in Snake River, Idaho, finds her life shattered when her cousin, Sam, is slain by an unknown assassin.
The story starts off more or less as the back of the book promises: My favorite character–Sam–didn’t have enough screen time, but Ariel was a strong protagonist, if not a little too-trusting of the men in her life. But then at the end, we have another bookend of more traditional scenes resolving the thriller aspects of the plot, with Ariel and her allies confronting the bad guys of nneville story and claiming their victory, then a denouement that tries to tie everything together and unless I am reading it wrong, which is possible clumsily tries to impart the moral of the story or the conclusions Neville wants us to reach from kkatherine the stuff in between — only it doesn’t seem to have much of a relation at all to the meat of the book.
Secondly, the transition from one story to the next is bouncing like riding on a bumpy and circuitous dirt road.
I loved the heroine, Ariel, but the family relationships–and neviille are many limbs on the tree–became increasingly difficult to follow. I don’t know,something more. Very disappointing from a author that I have enjoyed reading in the past. Mar 25, Debbie rated it did not like it Shelves: He who unites these objects without possessing the eternal wisdom may bring forth, not an age of cosmic unity, but one instead of savagery and terror.
This is convoluted and I wanted a flow chart. Neville creates a mess with Ariel’s family.

By the time I slogged my way to the end of the book, Nevile not only didn’t care about it but was angry at the writer, and myself, for the waste of my time.
I admit I did not finish the book.

Then there is Greek and Roman mythology, the succession of eons – two thousand year cycles – and astrology. Still, when the main character falls in love at first sight with some Eurotrash Lothario that appears at her work, and he is described as having “the Macedonian profile that one associates with heroes,” I had to toss the book aside and mourn the brief time I had lost to swallowing the first fifty pages of this drivel.
As this story unfolds, we are also shown scenes from the last days of the life of Jesus and the beginnings of Christianity, mainly from the point of view of Joseph of Arimithea but with others as well. To sum up, the magic circle isn’t a book I enjoyed in anyway even by trying to laugh at it.

For a tl;dr verdict, scroll to the bottom. Magick ending really just doesn’t seem to bring together all nevklle of the story.
I seriously needed a timeline and a family tree. First is the ponderous amount of research to plow through and remember for the next installment of the Jesus story, the Ariel story. The Magic Circle follows Circilo Behn as she tries to discover the secrets hidden in her ell history. The “ick factor” was too much for me.
This one simple left me wondering where were the editors to let it be published. Neville is a one-hit wonder in writing–and this book isn’t the hit! Backround themes such as secret meanings that weren’t properely explained. Now, granted, I listened to it abridged on four audiocassettes, but it just didn’t Then trying Oh, this book was so disappointing.
Again, the story is told from Ariel’s first person point of view and from the third person point of view of the characters near Jesus. I remember the plot sounded so intriguing on the cover but I was a bit let down by how the story unfolded.
