The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

How cool would it be to attend a circus where the magic performed is real?  At the night circus (open only from sundown to sunrise) the attendees aren’t aware of the magic coursing around them, just that the circus is the most enchanting place they have ever been.  It arrives without warning; it leaves without warning; with no set schedule of where it will appear next. 

As with all wonderful things, there is another side of the story.  Two competing magicians have each taken on an apprentice.  Those apprentices are now engaged in a contest.  The rules are vague, the contestants don’t know the identity of the other and the playing field is the circus.  Who will win?  What is the price of losing?  What will happen to the most enchanting place on earth?

What book is getting the most buzz right now?  This one, hands down!  Every publisher and librarian aimed website is talking about this debut novel.  And it’s understandable why.  It’s a love story, a dark fantasy and a visual treat all in one. 

Coming to town on September 13th – place your holds now!
