Have you ever wanted to join Cirque du Soleil? Swing on the trapeze and experience the magic inside the tents? Well, why not pick up “The Night Circus“ and join Le Cirque des Rêves?
“The circus arrives at night, without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within nocturnal black and white striped tents awaits a unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stand awestruck as a tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and gaze in wonderment at an illusionist performing impossible feats of magic.
Welcome to Le Cirque des Rêves. Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is underway -a contest between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in “a game,” in which each must use their powers of illusion to best the other. Unbeknownst to them, this game is a duel to the death, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will.” — As seen on book cover
Rick Riordan (author of the Percy Jackson series) says “The prose sparkles, and the story itself is a feat of magical acrobatics.”
Will you join the circus and be swept away with the magic of the big top?
