The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.

From the beginning to about the middle of the book every tim...

Der Nachtzirkus kommt ohne Vorwarnung. Jeder beliebige Ort auf der Welt. Jede beliebige Zeit. Auf einmal ist er einfach da, über Nacht, wo er gestern noch nicht war, mit seiner Vielzahl von Zelten, deren Inhalte dem Zuschauer erscheinen wie wahrgewordene Träume. Ein Garten aus Eis.
