Staff Reviews

The circus arrives in town suddenly and opens at nightfall. Two of the performers, Marco and Celia, have been groomed by their mentors from a very young age to participate in a mysterious battle to the death but neither knows it. That they meet and fall in love adds unforeseen twists. This magical, mysterious debut novel appeals to all of the senses and, just like Bailey, a farm boy entranced by the circus itself and a set of twins he meets there, you are drawn in and enveloped in the magic.

Fall '12 Reading Group List

“The Night Circus can be described in so many ways; It's a love story, a mystery, a fairy tale. However one describes it, it is definitely an exercise in imagination of the finest type. Share the amazement! You will become consumed by this story until the very last word. This is the type of book that should be debated over cups of coffee-grown-cold, long, long into the night! Highly recommended.”
— Nancy Simpson-Brice, The Book Vault, Oskaloosa, IA

September 2011 Indie Next List

“This elegant debut is a striking example of a nostalgic yet modern fairy tale. When two competing magicians lay a wager as to which can mold the more powerful protege, they opt to use a fantastical traveling wonderland -- The Night Circus -- as the venue for the competition. What is meant to be a battle of magical skills evolves into something much deeper as apprentices Celia and Marco enchant not only the circus around them, but also each other. The real conflict arises when the two realize how the competition is meant to end and they set about trying to change their predestined fate. I adored diving into Morgenstern's mesmerizing world and mourned when I reached the end.”
