Waiting On Wednesday: Pantomime

Author: Laura Lam
Publisher: Strange Chemistry
Expected Publication: February 5, 2013

R. H. Ragona’s Circus of Magic is the greatest circus of Ellada. Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass—remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone—are wonders beyond the wildest imagination. It’s a place where anything seems possible, where if you close your eyes you can believe that the magic and knowledge of the vanished Chimaera is still there. It’s a place where anyone can hide.

Iphigenia Laurus, or Gene, the daughter of a noble family, is uncomfortable in corsets and crinoline, and prefers climbing trees to debutante balls. Micah Grey, a runaway living on the streets, joins the circus as an aerialist’s apprentice and soon becomes the circus’s rising star.

But Gene and Micah have balancing acts of their own to perform, and a secret in their blood that could unlock the mysteries of Ellada.

My Thoughts:
Ever since I read Water For Elephants I have had a not so secret obsession with the Circus. I just love the feel of the Circus it reminds me of going with my family as a kid. The Circus is such a vivid image that when I'm reading I can smell the circus. Needless to say if you're mixing Circus and supernatural you have me absolutely hooked and I can not wait to read Pantomime!
