I have at times been disappointed by the highly rated books available to borrow for free. (I suppose most of us have a tendency to be more critical of things we had to pay for.) Let me assure you that this book fully deserves the ratings it is accumulating, even if it had been in the price range of a current best seller!
This book has a wonderful mix of mystery, fantasy and unusual characters. The ending hits the perfect mark of leaving you satisfied that you finished the book, but wanting the story to go on. The story line is unique and the plot fast paced. All in all a great read! Enjoy!
The main character's personality is stagnant, as it never develops and is trapped in a few simple emotions (infatuation, anger, and fear). She never deviates beyond those feelings or comes to a stronger understanding of her life or what kind of person she is. The plot devices also are incredibly lacking, as new elements of the plot simply happen and are accepted. Mysterious backstory elements are stated and easily accepted in the story line. There is no foreshadowing, questioning of dubious information, or explanation into why things happen the way they do.
Ultimately I encourage reading this book, but do not expect a work of literary genius.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the circuses we grew up on had this type of allure to them? Magicians that capture our minds with spells, while the fey like performers capture our eyes with their graceful moves. Oh what a wonderful world indeed that would be!
Lucky for us, Mr. Kahler created a world with these very powerful beings who can transform everything around us with just a blink of the eyelid. From the very first page, we are thrust right into the dark world of the Cirques de Immortales where a performer has been murdered. Right away, we get a glimpse of the dangerous side to this profound group of circus performers.
It is told from Vivienne's standpoint, so we are kept in the dark, only learning things as she learns them. There are a few times we are privy to certain conversations between other characters that help us see a little bit more into everyone's parts that they are destined to play.
I liked Vivienne for the most part. There were times she seemed a little naive concerning the background info on the other members of the circus, but in her defense she had a lot on her plate so I guess that could be understandable.
Besides our main character, the others are an interesting lot too. Kingston is a heartthrob indeed! Every time I hear his name, I imagine this tall gorgeous man wearing a top hat (magicians have to have their top hats) and an overcoat with no shirt open. Oh goodness me!
I, personally, love our leader of the Immortal Circus, Mab of the Winter Court. She is sexy incarnate. She is dark, deceptive, and yet I feel drawn to her like a magnet.Read more ›
*It's a little strange to rate a serial. The work isn't finished but I still think it's worth rating/reviewing in parts. I'll update this as I finish installments.
Just finished the second installment & I'm still enthralled. It feels like something big is coming and while this leg of the journey wasn't full of thrills or answers, it felt solid. There's still no definitive answer to what took Sabina & we have another murder along the way. I have to know more about the Summer King & the conflict with Mab's court. I'm also eager to find out what is up with Vivienne. She's fainted & lost time but doesn't seem concerned about that anymore. She also seems rather relaxed about not quite recalling the terms of her contract. I'm disturbed for her. I'm worried for Mel, she's sick & no one really seems to care, except Kingston, who can't fix it. I'm quite interested in the relationship between Kingston & Mab. Seems like they're tied by magic & lots of time. Lillith remains a curious one but I give the benefit of the doubt any girl who rolls with her cat, no matter how odd.Read more ›

It all begins as a mistery plot, with a touch of "Miss Marple". But then it evolves in a very "Bradburesque" unsertone. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Victor Lage de Araujo
