⚡ Blurb as on Goodreads – 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

⚡My Review – Let me tell you that I just started Reading this book. I didn’t read the Blurb or any Reviews. Just Picked it up and started reading it. And it’s a good book that each one of us will definitely enjoy reading. If not now then sometime in the Future, if you have read it you know what I mean right 😉.
The Story Revolves around The Night Circus wherein Circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.
The Plot revolves around the Two Protagonists, Celia And Marco who are both trained Magician to be a part of an Unknown and Unusual competition. Both are trained from an very young age to be skilled Magician to Compete in an competition where you don’t know what to do or expect. You don’t know who is your Competitor or what to do. You face the competition one day at a time.
The Circus is the platform provided to Celia and Marco to Perform & Showcase their Magic and Skills to Create unimaginable things that is perceived as a Illusion by many spectators. In truth each creation is a part of the competition. Each Creation Represents something that is relevant to the Circus and the people relating to it.
The Writing style is Lyrical. The Narration is Richly Detailed and Descriptive. It’s the writing that captures your attention. I think it is the best part of this book.
The Narration changes from First Person, Second to Third Person which is quite Insightful as understanding the Perspective of characters is very important. The Detailed Narrative gives you a very clear understanding of the situations.
The Story is absolutely Enchanting and Very Magical. The Roaring Chemistry between Marco and Celia is a pleasant surprise. The Illusions, Creations, Designs, Characters, Competition adds a lot to the Richly Imaginative world written by the Author.
I have enjoyed this book like none other. The experience is very delightful and extraordinary.
The intricate details for description was rich and inviting. The Characterization of each and every character throughout the story was gripping. The atmosphere created by the Author is Enthralling and Enchanting. I couldn’t stop reading, thinking & talking about the book.
You can expect the unexpected in the story.
Experience the Magic.
⚡What I didn’t enjoy – It is the Time line of the story which was a bit difficult to keep a track of.
Secondly the slow pace of the story which took extra chapters with repetitive issues and writing.
Thirdly I wish there was a sequel to The Night Circus.
☔⚡☔ My Rating – 4 out of 5.
