This novel is one of my all-time favourites. Beautifully written and full of enchanting characters, the story is exquisitely charming and full of haunting mystery. Against the background of a black and white circus of mysteries, two magicians beguile the circus goers and each other with nightly wonders, soon falling in love despite being magically bound to a deadly competition with rules neither understands.
I feel it is best to know as little as possible about this novel before starting to read it, and will therefore not go into much detail. Please pick up a copy and read it, it is absolutely wonderful!
In the meantime, here is a pretty book trailer for you to enjoy.
