The Initiation is the first book in The Secret Circle series, written by the author L. J. Smith. It was originally published in 1992 by HarperPaperbacks, but reissued as part of an omnibus edition by HarperCollins in 2012.


The Circle's Power has Lured Her Home . . .

Cassie must confront a shattering challenge: an ordeal that could cost her life or gain her more than she's ever imagined . . .

Charmed by the Secret Circle, she's initiated into the mysterious "in crowd," a coven of young witches whose power has controlled New Salem for three hundred years.

Hopelessly in love with the coven leader's boyfriend, Cassie risks falling prey to dark powers in order to have him. But if she does, her endless love could destroy the coven, New Salem, and her!

. . . And She Will Emerge the Leader or Perish!
