Book Description

The circus is a blur of commotion with last minute preparations for the spring tour. Ravi, the high-wire heart throb, becomes jittery when he meets the company’s newly-hired female dwarf. Hours before departure, his magical perceptions are on fire as he witnesses her involvement in a gory bump off.

The circus manager can’t be found. Ravi is desperate to protect his sweetheart and performing partner, Alice. The train creaks away, beginning the long journey with danger stowed on board. Nicknamed the Great Birdman, Ravi steps forward and exposes his true identity—a real risk during edgy, vigilante times of prohibition. A brave move—but will his Suparna abilities be enough to snuff out this fierce demon?


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Moore throws us into an intriguing and vivid world where divine beings scrape by as performers in a depression-era-style circus.The plot is minimal: defeat the villain, get the girl. But the fantasy world is wonderful and I can only hope there might be longer stories to come,
in this same setting?" ~Emily Veinglory, POD People


"Ms. Moore Pens A Fascinating Short Story That Had Me Rapidly Reading And It Is A Must Read!!" ~Linda's Reviews, Goodreads

5.0 out of 5 stars Whisked Me Away December 8, 2011
By LoriDR
Format:Kindle Edition
In the harsh reality of today's world, sometimes I need to get lost in a fantasy, and this story whisked me away. I actually experienced the circus with my five senses as I read about the high wire hero and his love. I've read several of Marsha's fantasies and she always puts me right in the action with her characters. If you like fantasy, I highly recommend her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story - well worth the money December 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this urban fantasy short story with its Sanskrit spirits and demons. It's inspired me to read more of Marsha's work. It's about a circus in the 20s where Ravi, the Suparna birdman and aerial artist, discovers that the dwarf, Sadie is a Rakshasi and he must deal with her before his beloved Alice becomes next on the creatures hit list.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a delightful read! December 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The only complaint I have is that it ended way too soon :) This was a great read about Ravi, a Suparna, who is hiding his true identity from most of the circus folk (besides Jack the Manager and his girlfriend Alice). While practicing for their performance, Ravi nearly drops Alice from the flying trapeze as a newly hired dwarf, Sadie, causes a commotion below with Ravi's friends, the Snake people. He has a feeling the dwarf is more than meets the eye, and soon finds out his feelings are correct. He sees Sadie one night doing something hideous and decides to inform Jack. What happens next is the search for Sadie's whereabouts as well as what Sadie truly is, as she is no ordinary dwarf. I really liked this story and thought that Moore did a great job of making Ravi seem real with his "not so good English". I encourage you to take a chance on this book. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read April 2, 2012
By Juli D
Format:Kindle Edition
Le Cirque de Magie sets readers down in the 1920s alongside Ravi, a trapeze artist in a circus troupe in Sarasota, Florida. Ravi's no ordinary trapeze artist, he's really a supernatural being called a Suparna.

During his troupe's run, a dwarf joins up, but Ravi senses something strange about her--something he doesn't like. When his beloved Alice is threatened, Ravi senses the dwarf is behind it.

Can Ravi save his beloved? What more trouble will the dwarf cause before he can stop her? And what'll happen when Ravi's secret is exposed?

You'll have to read to find out!

Filled with intrigue, romance, and magic, along with authentic tidbits of the culture of the 1920s that created a unique and vivid story world, this is a delightful little tale that I think fantasy fans will enjoy--I sure did!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars May 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Engaging, somewhat satisfying read. What I liked about it outweighed its flaws, which, unfortunately, also includes a 'meh' sort of ending. I liked the idea of the creature the main character was, and the author did a fairly good job of appealing to all five senses in descriptions and creative atmosphere.
Few editing issues, including some underdeveloped aspects and some spotty tell-y parts in the narrative. But overall, decent--especially as a free read.
