Be drawn into the magic of the circus in this spellbinding debut from Erin Morgenstern.
Due to the rivalries of their magician fathers, Celia and Marco have been trained their whole lives to compete in a fierce battle in which – unbeknownst to them – only one can survive. Unfortunately for them, the pair fall for each other.
The plot line of this story is mystifying with different characters being the focus of each chapter. It’s a lot to take in at first. You’ll wonder how all the storylines will all combine in the end, but Morgenstern magically wraps up all the plot lines.
It’s a wondrous tale that ends bittersweetly, but you’ll be swept up in everything along the way.
Final say: A Romeo and Juliet type of love story that will hook you. ★★★★☆
