"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads- 'Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn' the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. 'Le Cirque des Reves - Circus of Dreams'. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter."
~ A magical and hugely imaginative story set in a mysterious black and white circus where anything is possible and where the talents of a young man and woman are pitted against eachother. It drew me into a world I didn't want to leave!
A feast for the senses, a fantasia of magic, mischief and love, The Night Circus is an extraordinary blend of fantasy and reality that will dazzle readers young and old
