It's been years since I read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern but it's one of those books that has really stuck in my mind because it was just such a fantastic story. I'm really excited that Erin finally has a new book, The Starless Sea, coming out later this year and I thought it would be fun to spotlight The Night Circus for anyone who hasn't had a chance to read it yet.
You can read my review of The Night Circus here but in the meantime here's the blurb and book trailer.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per¬formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
