Product Description

Product Description

Just how far would you go for family?

Eleven year old twins Alfie and Rosie Tanner had always lived with their grandmother, believing her to be the only family they had. But, on a rare school trip to the local castle, they would discover that not only did they have a much bigger family than most, but one more powerful than any.

After the twins, along with their best friends Billy and Emma, are chased through the castle by the school bully Charlie Benson, they are guided to a distant magical land. Once there, they are met by a mysterious woman, who tells them that their father is lost, but their mother lives. Although alive, she has been bound by spell, and now serves the most perilous of wizards. A tyrant of a wizard, who in order to rule had dispensed with his entire family, has invoked a law whereby only a certain level of magic is allowed, and is protected by four white faceless guardians.

With no idea where they are, but determined to free the mother they had never known from her bind, the young travellers go on to experience the many wonders, and dangers of this strange and magical land. Along the way, they are taught magic, make their first ever magical trade, and come face to face with wizards, witches, dragons and giants. They discover that there is much more to their lives than they could ever possibly have imagined, and unwittingly, pay a visit to the most magical place ever known.

Can Alfie and Rosie save their mother? It’s an enormous task, but they're certainly prepared to risk their lives trying.


'I highly recommend this book for children and adults alike.'

' ... this author took me into his world and just wouldn't let me out!'

The White Circle

Having loved the Harry Potter book series, I was somewhat reluctant to delve back into the world of magic. After all, you read one magic story you’ve read them all, right? Wrong!

I’m ever so pleased I took the plunge.

Our four young protagonists: Alfie, Rosie, Emma and Billy are unexpectedly drawn into a magical universe and they only went on a school trip!

The White Circle has a direct narrative that slowly builds as it introduces characters and plot but soon envelops the reader as they need to know what happens next. It spans the ages with tales of yore tied up with contemporary imagery and culture – i.e. Billy dressed in a classic sci-fi outfit?!

This book shows great imagination that leaves the reader following red-herrings, being sucked into their world as it twists and turns and ultimately feeling frustrated because there are loose ends that need tying up.

Second book anyone? This story NEEDS a follow-up and I for one look forward to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful clever read 28 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must say it was with a little reticent I bought this book after a recommendation from a friend. So it is was a wonderful suprise that the book captivated me from page one. This is not one of my preferred genres but White Circle has made me somewhat of a convert. A beautifully written story that will appeal to child and adult alike. I am looking forward to the next installment from Mr Hodgson.
