Hallowed Ground: The Mystery of the African Fairy Circles
This magical story is inspired by the most haunting and least explored country in the world – Namibia – with its foggy Skeleton Coast, buried goldmines, shocking secrets and awe-inspiring sand dunes.
Spread across the face of its deserts are hundreds of miles of ‘fairy circles’ : vast enough to be seen from space. They grow and die with the same lifespan as humans, yet no-one has been able to explain why or how they appear.
Then one day, three teenagers and their families arrive from different parts of the globe. Helped by bushmen, the buried possessions of a Victorian explorer, and a golden leopard, they solve the mystery of the African Circles. What will be discovered beneath the hallowed ground? And how will it change the future of the planet above it?

First of lets start of with the cover. It’s really impressive and looks amazing. The geographical nature of this book is pretty spot on and makes me want to go and visit Namibia. It sounds like an amazing country. Any way you’re not hear to read about my rambling thoughts.
It took me a while to get into this book. I nearly didn’t finish the whole thing. The first half of the book seem to drag. It may of just been me. But then the story begins to get really interesting. Then I couldn’t seem to put the book down. I was flying through the pages. It is definitely one of those books when you’ve finished and you’re still thinking about it a week later.
They begin to see/hear alot about these crop circle. And go about discovering what they’re. Now this is when I was hooked on the story.
Don’t let my review stop you from reading this book. You won’t be disappointed. I’d give this book a 3.9/5
