In this mesmerizing debut, a competition between two magicians becomes a star-crossed love story.

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 RĂªves. 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.

From the Hardcover edition.

    From StrangePumpkin
    Every chapter is a treat, I felt so connected to the characters, it was better than a fairy tale. Can't wait for her to write more ;) I felt like I was a guest at the circus ;) thanks for the experience, I wish I could erase it from my mind and read it again ;)

  • Night circus review

    From Ragnartbold
    I loved it! This is the most immersed in a book I've been for years. I'm sad to be done because I'll never again read it for the first time. I envy you the treat of that.
  • Excellent

    From Vee Dub
    An unexpected surprise that starts as mysterious as the night circus itself. Mysteries are slowly revealed and you will be as drawn to the fate of the characters as deeply as I was. Highly recommended.
