This is not a usual circus story that has been told never before until now. Two individuals, Celia and Marco, both trained in the art of magician manipulation in different ways are prepped from a young age for a game in their adulthood. To battle each other in who is best in tricks. Slowly Marco and Celia begin to fall into another dangerous game, love. Sadly, only one wins to be head magician of the Night Circus. Everything is at stake for Marco and Celia as well as for those around them because two power houses can’t be in the same place without severe and devasting consequences. Only one can be the last man or woman standing.
I have always loved this book and have re-read it so many times. Its one of those books where one can’t get tired of the story. I love the dynamic and Morgenstern really has a page turning characteristic in this novel that doesn’t allow the reader to “simply” put it down. I just can’t further describe how much I love this novel. I wish that this was a series to follow what is to come after the aftermath of the competition. Or any other stand alone novels about the other characters because they’re pretty interesting as well as the two protagonists. Sadly, I am not the author so maybe one day, Morgenstern might do just that.
