The Night Circus is a captivating love story and battle encompassing intricate and detailed scene setting like nothing you’ve ever read before. Celia and Marco are two battling magicians in a circus, but not just any circus. This circus appears out of nowhere and disappears before you know it. Celia and Marco are battling each other in this circus, and they have been destined for this battle since the day they were born. But what Celia and Marco, and their masters, don’t know will happen in their quest for greatness is the love they are soon to find and the choices they will have to make.
Trust me when I say, you do not have to be a fan of fantasy or fairy tales to enjoy this book. You do have to be a fan of slow and detailed stories, with a vivid imagination and an appreciation for the magical world of circuses.
This is by far the most captivating book I have ever read. I enjoyed the playfulness of the setting being a circus and the contrast between the light and laughter of circuses and the dark twists this book holds.
Stylist Magazine explained it as “dark and dreamy; a captivating love story” and this just about sums up how I feel about it. A beautiful, dark love story combined with the most exquisite details.
Nothing but five stars from me!
Let me know if you have read any other books as dark and beautiful as this.
