One night, when a strange red moon fills the sky, six school girls find themselves in an abandoned theme park, drawn there by a mysterious force. A student has just been found dead. Everyone suspects suicide. Everyone -- except them.
In that derelict fairground an ancient prophecy is revealed. They are The Chosen Ones, a group of witches, bound together by a power, one which could destroy them all. But they soon learn that despite their differences they need each other in order to master the forces that have been awakened within them.
High school is now a matter of life and death. Because the killing has only just begun.

They quickly realized that they shared a passion for supernatural stories about young adults. Soon the idea to write together was born. In August 2009 they began working on what would become the novel The Circle with its two sequels.From Booklist:
In this first installment in the Engelsfors Trilogy, a small Swedish town has a big magic problem. It has become the seat of some spooky paranormal activity, namely a series of suspicious student suicides. Thankfully, the Chosen One has been summoned; only there’s not one but six teenage girls imbued with magical abilities. Minoo, Vanessa, Rebecka, Anna-Karin, Ida, and Linnea rarely get along, but like it or not, they have to work together to hone their newfound magical abilities and defeat the shadowy figure who stalks them in the night. If that weren’t a big enough problem, the girls also struggle with usual high-school troubles—eating disorders, absent parents, drug and alcohol abuse, bullying—which, at times, overshadow the looming presence of evil. The Scandinavian setting provides a chilly atmosphere to an otherwise dark story of struggling teens and a rash of suicides, but the multilayered, cinematic plot is buoyed by the girls’ determination, as well as the understated and idiosyncratic presence of magic. Grades 9-12. --Sarah Hunter
