The Night Circus

Cover: 'The Night Circus'

Staff Review: "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern


A true exhibit of fine writing, craftsmanship, and imagination!  This enchanting book takes to you a circus world you could only imagine and wish that you can experience yourself.  Imagine a black and white circus that has an air of magic surrounding it's every detail and those people who make it all come to life.  Follow the tale of Celia and Marco, two children who are raised to compete with one another in a duel of magic who ultimately find themselves in love with one another.  These love-crossed competitors needs to find a way to end their duel as well as save the circus they both adore.  With the circus as a stage for their competition, you are brought into a fantastical world of magic and wonder that is reminiscent of old storytelling.  The story is unique to much of what is available to read today and will keep your attention to the last pages.  You will not lack for a wonderful love story, the mystery of magic, and the joy of this mystical world!
