The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. Behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underwaya duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco.

The world of Cirque des Rêves ignites a sense of wonder and a deep passion that inspire all who visit. I loved immersing myself in this book, watching how Celia and Marco stretch their talent and inspire all to run away with the circus. At times I did struggle to keep the timelines in order, but this also increased the mystery and intrigue. The audiobook is also very well done, though not preferred for the first read through as the story meanders back and forth in time.

Rating: 4/5 stars
