A world of almost unbearable beauty. This is one of the best books I have ever read.
Brunonia Barry, author of "The Lace Reader"
Welcome to "Le Cirque des Reves" Within these nocturnal black-and-white-striped tents lies an utterly unique experience, a feast for the senses. Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is under way 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 the players, 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.
But when Celia and Marco innocently tumble head first into love a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands their masters intervene with dangerous consequences.
Erin Morgenstern s singular and spell-casting debut is a mesmerizing love story for the ages.
A riveting debut . . . pulls you into a world as dark as it is dazzling, fully realized but still something out of a dream. You will not want to leave it.
Tea Obreht, author of "The Tiger s Wife"

"Pure pleasure . . . You can be certain this riveting debut will create a group of "reveurs "all its own." Aimee Bender, author of "The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake"
A gorgeously imagined fable . . . An enchanting read.
