I have just finished reading this book and enjoyed it immensely. Every page conjures up an image not dissimilar to a Harry Potter set, weaving the magic, illusion and wonderment of a Victorian Circus which appears at night and disappears by dawn and makes you question whether the circus itself is real or imaginary. The black and white tents of the Le Cirque Des Reves sets the stage for a challenge between two highly gifted sorcerers who are being used as puppets to settle an old score of ancient times. If you are imaginative, enjoy being whisked away into a fantasy world and enjoy romance - yes a love story is woven between the pages - then you will love this. It has all the makings of a movie to be enjoyed by Twilight and Harry Potterians and its not surprising that it has already been adapted for the big screen. For book fans it is written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.
