By far and away this is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a beautiful love story encased in the tale of a fantastical circus. The description of the circus is outstanding, I could almost smell the caramel and popcorn.
But beyond all the mystique and wonder of the night circus there is a sinister game being played out by two old foes, a game which will affect everyone who visits or works at the circus. This is an absolutely enchanting tale, why it has not won any awards is a mystery to me!
