An absorbing and ethereal tale, never quite touching to earth, but carries one along.

This book is quite the fantastic fantasy. Two illusionists are in a contest that will span their lives until one wins. They have no idea how to win or what to do to win. Their sponsors in the contest create the circus as the arena for their players. The writing is beautiful - not too verbose, not too simplistic. It's descriptive. It's wicked. I'm not typically a fantasy fiction reader but I couldn't put this book down.

The circus arrives without warning—thus begins the story of the Night Circus. It is called Le Cirque des Reves, and it is only open at night. But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their dueling instructors. What they and everyone is unaware of is that, this is a game that is played to the death. The Night Circus is a story of an ancient dual between two schools of magical knowledge: old and new. During the course of the deadly game, two young illusionists fall in love, forever changing their lives and the lives of the performers and the guests of the night circus. I loved this book—while reading it I felt like I could see the contents of the tents, feel the fluffiness of the cloud maze, smell the caramel in the air. Morgenstern makes her creation real and believable—despite the fact that this is fantasy. Completely original, never boring,romantic and thrilling at the same time. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
