Synopsis

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.

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 per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

Fantastic!

One of the most wonderful books I've ever read. The story is fantastically imaginative, I could see all the details of the circus, see the clowns, smell the food I didn’t want it to end. Once it was over, I was in a daze for a couple of days wondering what had happened.

I lived the detail in this book! You could truly feel as though you were there, I didn't want to put it down because I needed to find out what crazy visuals I would read next. The characters were charming and you got the feeling you really knew them and connected with their feelings.

I loved this beautifully written, out-of-the ordinary fantasy-novel. I do not think it is for everybody but those who like imaginative, masterfully presented, non-cliché lovey story with creative and inspiring story-telling will enjoy this book tremendously. It was one of the highlights of my 2013 readings. It touches the soul and challenges imagination.

The Night Circus has to be one of the best books written, Erin just takes on a magical ride of imagination, love lust and passion. The magic is amazing and the anticipation of what is to come next is great. This is a winter book when you are rugged up with a cup of hot chocolate and a big storm out side so you can just drift into it. Brilliant

Erin Morganstern is a genius. This novel had me hooked from the first page. It is an amazing feat of imagination, it's so well written, the circus becomes this vivid image in your mind. The Night Circus will leave everyone who reads it wanting to run away with Le Cirque des Reves.
