Book Description

September 20, 2012
The grandeur of the traveling circus is at its peak in the early 1920s when sixteen-year-old Laila Vilonia is searching for an escape from her bleak future. Behind the gates of the legendary Marvelle Circus, she is thrust into a mysterious world she never knew existed—a paradise populated with outcasts. It’s in this glamorous new home that Laila sparks a controversial romance with notorious sideshow performer, "The Disappearing Man," and learns just how dangerous her new life can be.

Touring the picturesque eastern coast of America, Laila’s immersed in friendship, vaudeville, festivals, sequins, and serial killers. But behind the curtain, a sadistic plan is brewing that will crack the very foundation upon which she’s become so dependent.

4.5 stars
 Although the circus isn’t my cup of tea err coffee, I haven’t had tea in a long time, it was so beautifully written. Miss Kayne knows how to use her words effectively and paints a very realistic picture.
 Laila is already in trouble from the first page. She has witnessed something she shouldn’t have. Marvelle, the legendary circus comes into the story to rescue her. Well not for the soul extent to but it ends up that way. 
Taken in by Marvelle, she is instantly shown a new life. A better life than the one she wants to forget. Being thrown into studies, duties, boys, and new friendships. Better than she had. EVER.
 Of course with all good things must come bad, lies, manipulation, heartache, and scandals. I was an emotional wreck at the end, I can’t wait for the next one.
Good Job Miss Kayne!!!
