The circus arrives without warning. 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 duel between two young magicians is underway: Only one can be left standing. The two soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, performers and patrons, hanging in the balance.The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is a lyrical book full of wonder.
