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.

After the last disc stopped playing in my car the other night, I still had a good half hour left of my drive. All I could do was sit in silence. I had physical reactions to this book- moments where I went Ahhhh. I don’t often purchase books, but I absolutely will buy this in both audiobook and written format. 

I truly can’t put into words how much I enjoyed his book. The writing is moving, inspiring and makes me ache to write something of equal power. I am highly anticipating whatever comes next from Erin Morgenstern.

And what can I say about Jim Dale that hasn’t been said before? I found this on youtube and I honestly think I could watch him read the entire book like this. He is the master of storybook reading and I am so very glad he read The Night Circus as he has such an incredible ability to bring characters to life.

Get thee to a library (or bookstore!) and listen away to Erin Morgenstern and Jim Dale work their magic.
