Summary
Unwittingly entered into a competition with one another when they were both just children, illusionists Celia and Marco unexpectedly fall in love even as they are forced to pit their magical talents up against one another amidst the fantastical black and white tents of Le Cirque des Reves--the circus of dreams.
Critique
This atmospheric page-turner is magical realism at its finest. Be prepared for this love story, with its slow building suspense and unforgettable descriptions of magic sprung to life, to cast its spell on you. Highly recommended and enchanted reading.
