This was a fun read! I’ve never read anything about the circus and wasn’t sure I’d like it. But Sarah Noffke created a wonderful world of fantasy and circus acts. This is my second book from this author and I WANT MORE! She is very generous in developing characters, and there are quite a few in this book. Her characters really come alive on the page and she gives them depth, making us really connect with them. I will warn you though, be prepared to read book two right away. This one ends abruptly at a point where you’re yelling “No, but what happens to….” At least the whole series is already available.
