Magnus Roma was a masher. the Show he had built shared fantasy with reality. Then a warden showed up at The Show and was seen among the crowd . Magnus had built the circus for Penn who was disguised as a boy for her to hide behind. Jarmay was Penn’s best friend for as long as Penn could remember.
Things changed when the Medusae came to visit ;never spoke of an attach. The Medusae came to visit.For a year they watched the earth thru the whole year. the characters from the sky but you were wrong. For a year the Medusae watched and then just left,The wardens were then commissioned to check out the soil.Then as time went on people came up missing here and there. Then whole families disappeared. Then the uncontrolled was also at the circus that no one could remember that and definitely could not describe . One was next to Evie. Our father had been gone for weeks . Their father had developed a three level city on rails so they could travel anywhere and to hold their number. Also Penn was not a brother to Evie but a sister - Penelope but she had to be protected. Without their father the Show would all fall apart and it would be known it was not pretense but actual abilities that was in the Show. As it was dangerous anything different maybe called alien. Then the circus is destroyed and Penn’s sisters were captured and she must find a way to set them free.
Well this story was definitely different. I definitely didn’t love this story but I didn’t love it nor did I hate it. At times it was slow and at other times seemed to busy. Also Penn seemed to change all the time. Not sure i would willingly read another.but it was fairly interesting for the most part.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
