Come inside and take a seat; the show is about to begin . . . Outside any city still standing, the Mechanical Circus Tresaulti sets up its tents. Crowds pack the benches to gawk at the brass-and-copper troupe and their impossible feats: Ayar the Strong Man, the acrobatic Grimaldi Brothers, fearless Elena and her aerialists who perform on living trapezes. War is everywhere, but while the Circus is performing, the world is magic.That magic is no accident: Boss builds her circus from the bones out, molding a mechanical company that will survive the unforgiving landscape.But even a careful ringmaster can make mistakes.Two of Tresaulti’s performers are trapped in a secret standoff that threatens to tear the Circus apart, just as the war lands on their doorstep. Now they must fight a war on two fronts: one from the outside, and a more dangerous one from within . . .

What it's about: In a war-ravaged world, a wonder of a circus that combines flesh and mechanical body parts travels across the countryside. But the miracle of these performers has caught the eye of leaders who want a miracle of their own. Thoughts: If I were the sort of person whose love affair wi...

4.0 Mechanique: A Tale of the Circus Tresaulti
What a peculiar book. I wavered wildly while I was reading it, going from BEST EVER to DO NOT LIKE and back again, but I think I came out in favour of it in the end.I think if I read it again, or even picked it apart, I'd like it even more. The structure is very conscious, changing tense, point of v...
