Overview

"If you will not be saved, there will be consequences."

The Last Circle is a chilling and brutal account of a genocide driven take-over of America by radical, right-wing, Christian conservatives.

Based upon existing platforms and quotes from American Conservative political and church leaders, The Last Circle chronicles the rise to power of a United States Evangelical theocracy and the small group of Pagan and LGBT friends who must escape the country in order to survive.

The U.S. economy is plunged into depression allowing a charismatic preacher to seize control of the government as the leader of the Tea Party and 'Revangelism' movements. With the support of a starving nation, he engages in a gruesome, systematic program of religious and cultural cleansing.

Laura Salway is the leader of a devoted group of friends who maintain a precarious Wiccan Coven in Indianapolis. After publicly performing a Pagan ritual in protest of the new administration, they attempt to flee to the safety of Europe. In a cat and mouse chase through the Southern states, they are relentlessly pursued by Shelby Langman, the vitriolic director of the Bureau of Religious Protection, charged with keeping America safe from threats to Judeo-Christian values.

Their terrifying journey tests the limits of the Coven's friendship and Laura must discover who among them is secretly tipping Shelby off.

The thing that is so chilling about this book is, given our current political and social climate, it is easy to imagine this REALLY happening in our country today. I enjoyed the author's vivid descriptions of her characters and the thrilling journey that she took them on. There were certain points in the story where I could not put the book down and it stayed with me after I finished reading it. This story is about much more than acceptance; of yourself and others and standing up for what you believe in in the face of great danger and retribution. It is about abuse of power, a fanatical belief system, and a single-minded ruthlessness. That is the truly scary part of this story - it's very clear parallels to our world today.
