THE NIGHT CIRCUS REVIEW
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
A phenomenal novel unlike any we've ever read. We wanted the world that was created and inhabited by Celia and Marco to be real, especially the circus, and the accompanying characters.
The Circus is operated through mysterious magic, that both Celia and Marco play a part in. They each create elaborate illusions for the circus at the behest of their mentors, who have pitted the two against each other, unbeknownst to them.
Enter, a little concept named fate, that brings the two together, without either of them knowing how closely connected they are through the circus. What follows is a magical courtship that blossoms into true love; which is tested when they find out who the other really is, and they have the ultimate sacrifice.
This novel was a joy to read, beautifully written and exceeded our expectations. Erin has definitely established herself as one of our favourite authors.
