Imogene's secret blew me away! IT WAS SO GOOD!
Keep these coming Giannoccaro - because as little as I like clowns - I'm hooked!
Sivan has now let The Clown take over , but that doesn't stop him from taking what he craves most ....Imogene.
Now he has her tucked away in his twisted little carnival , where Psychotic Fantasies are played out , tortured secrets dwell and unknown truths become known.
Can they erase each others nightmares together ?
I was wondering what was going to happen in the second act of the story , because Sivan was battling with family ,friends and trying to keep his inner demons secret .
It's Tough work trying to keep The Clown tied down .
In this part of the story The Clown overtakes him and gets what he wants , but is forced to see that something just isn't right and he must let go that with which he loves .....
I hated the part when Sivan's mother finally decides to visit him and let him know something about himself that she should have been helping him with all his life .
It was a guttural moment for me ...I wanted to sock her in the face .
Some parts that take place now and from Imogene's past are very upsetting , horrid and emotional to read and are in vivid details , but if you've read the story from the beginning stick with it because there are twists you don't see coming .
Where in Act 1, Sivan was this tortured clown trying to find a place in this world where he can be himself and let his clown free, Act 2 is where all of that comes to fruition. Sivan lets the clown out completely and he's far more disturbed and tortured than what was let on in Act 1.
Throughout the book there is this push and pull between Sivan and Imogene. Sivan has to battle his clown enough to give Imogene the choice of how accepting she can be. She is put off but intrigued and he is demented but in love. So while Sivan and Imogene have this polar opposite emotional torment within each of them, the reader is also put through an emotional push and pull as well deciding what is right and what is wrong and is there such thing with Sivan and Imogene?
I wanted to fight for Sivan and fight against Sivan. I wanted to save Imogene and push her towards her psychotic destiny.
Where Act 1 was the foreplay, Act 2 was the main event and it was truly a ride I will never forget. These characters are burned into my psyche and I will always love the clown.
I hate to see this end. I fell in love with the circus and with all of the characters.
Only you can take my childhood dreams into the dark side of my adult fantasy.
Thank you for your words!!! I'll keep them close..to my heart!!!
“No one loves the clown.”
Roll up, roll up the circus is back in town. A circus with harrowing memories for those that were forced to perform, a perfect piece of entertainment for the innocent members of the audience, yet behind closed doors, the true horrors of the circus are revealed. Slowly…agonisingly slowly.
“The circus is magical, but not all magic is beautiful. Some of it is dark and ugly.”
This book was hauntingly good, the characters that we got to know in book one were peeled back, stripped of their make-up and their façade as A Giannoccaro takes you behind the scenes, into the minds and hearts of Sivan and Imogene. Two people connected by the circus, yet trapped by the same at the same time.
“The thing with pleasure and fear is they often go together, and I abandoned dancing that deadly tango years ago.”
Sivan is trying not to be overcome by the clown within and Imogene keeps trying to escape the clown who has become the object of her worst nightmares. Not one of the same but the face makes it hard to differentiate. Two broken people, seemingly only having the propensity to love one and other and yet the clown keeps them apart, because “no-one loves the clown.”
“You are no one. You are no one because you love me, and no one loves the clown.”
This is a book that cannot be spoiled, A Giannoccaro has weaved a perfect web around these characters with the circus definitely being the sticky threads that keep these two well and truly tangled. Who is the spider in this book though? We have two flies, surely the spider is hungry? Or at least intrigued by his latest victims?
Clowns love their war paint, it is a piece of them, identifiable only to them, each an individual expression of the person within. Sivan and Imogene are not only connected through the paint but by life itself. Little threads that have tenuously linked them and now they have come together, the question is do the threads snap or do they strengthen? Can these threads become a suspension cable that forever supports?
“I will always be your no one, and you will be my someone…”
A Giannoccaro wraps up Sivan and Imogene’s story with intense emotion, brutal honesty and with enough angst and tension to induce palpitations. As the sorry truth is slowly revealed and the battle begins you know that Sivan and Imogene have a mountain to climb in more ways than one. Two people that can’t live without one and other and yet cannot live with one and other either. An untenable situation, the clown and the acrobat, forever performers, circus in their blood, but has the circus bled them dry? The Ring Master, the man in control, the man who brings the circus together, can this one last act be whipped into shape or has the curtain closed forever without the possibility of an encore?
“We all get to play the fool occasionally, Sivan, each of us has a clown inside somewhere. But, we have other faces too.”
I loved this duet. A Giannoccaro certainly knows how to do dark, the tension building, the suspense, the intrigue as well as emotion. The character connection throughout was on point and as such Sivan was a man that I took into my heart, he was a victim too. For such a happy place the circus will forever be tainted as Sivan and Imogene’s story will definitely be hard to forget.
