The Night Circus

As a fan of fantasy fiction I was trepidatious approaching this novel, I was, however, pleasantly surprised. The story takes place around the turn of the century and follows the paths of two young sorcery students, Marco and Celia. Each have been trained since childhood to compete in a mysterious contest devised to test the skills and powers of the two students. The circus is created as the ultimate mysterious and bewitching venue, and what takes place within the eponymous Night Circus will change Celia, Marco and the circus menagerie they call family forever. A thoroughly good page turner that will appeal to fans of romance, thriller and fantasy genres alike
