the circus arrives without warning .

no announcements precede it. it is simply there, when yesterday it was not within the black and white striped canvas tenets is un utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. it is called le cirque des reves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway:

a duel between two young magicians, celia and marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors.

Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. 

Amidst the high stakes, celia and marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone from the performers to the patrons hanging in the balance.

5\5 stars 

non-spoilers review:

i mean if the synopsis didn’t intrigue you enough to read this book i don’t know what well ( maybe this review well ha ha).

the writing is enchanting and mysterious, the characters are raw and well written, the plot is intriguing and page turner.

everything in this book is beyond amazing, the love interest is heart melting, believe me when i say you need to read this you well not regret it i immediately want to reared it again the minute i finished it.



spoilers review :

from the moment the man in the grey suit talked to celia’s father till the moment he was being told story by widget this book got me anticipating everything that’s happened .

kiko is the grey man’s student i wasn’t expecting that at all.

the character development in this story is really good now this book isn’t that long and it follows the events for 30 years still there were actions even though they might be small but they shows how the characters developed through out the years from when marco was young and he just wanted to read and live with isobel till he grows up and know the seriousness of the challenge and his role in the circus, and for celia to not just practice but also to have hold of her live and growing to care about life and the people in the circus and not just the challenge and her father’s approval .

and ohh yes!! poppet and widget are favourites..
