In this mesmerizing debut, a competition between two magicians becomes a star-crossed love story.The circus arrives at night, without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within nocturnal black and white striped tents awaits a unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stand awestruck as a tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and gaze in wonderment at an illusionist performing impossible feats of magic.Welcome to Le Cirque des RĂªves. Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is underway - a contest between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in "a game," in which each must use their powers of illusion to best the other. Unbeknownst to them, this game is a duel to the death, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will.

I just loved this book, it was delightful. It had me enraptured right from the beginning. Even when things aren't happening, connections are being weaved, everything is interconnected. Even though many of the characters could perform feats of wondrous magic, many of them longed for the magic of the ...

Some books are a fantastical conjuring of a world. Of course the circus is a metaphor for the book. This book.

I feel under-equipped to comment on this. It's literary fiction with a fantasy heart. It's a beautiful and broken and even horrific meditation on truth and life and love and meaning. It's boundary-breaking meta commentary. It shatters rules around tense and voice and relatable characters and a hero'...
