From the Publisher:
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, 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 mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.
Annotation:
Erin Morgensen casts a spell readers will want to be under with her debut novel, which is an imaginative fantasia of a love story. THE NIGHT CIRCUS tells the tale of Celia and Marco, two members of the mysterious Cirque des Reves, which seems to exist only from dusk till dawn. The enchanting circus, which was designed by quasi-mythical individuals who never get older, has memory-triggering smells, ice-flowering plants, and humans who can bend their bodies in the most unbelievable positions. It is also where two young magicians have grown up under the tutelage of two fierce competitors. Celia's mother died, leaving her alone with her conniving father, Prospero the Enchanter, and Marco has been raised by the rival magician named Mr. A.H--. As Celia and Marco come of age--and begin to fall in love--Prospero and Mr. A.H-- pit them against each other in a battle of magic in which only one can survive.

"Prepare to be entranced by Erin Morgenstern's debut novel, THE NIGHT CIRCUS." - Patty Rhule 09/10/2011

"The author writes beautifully and descriptively, and the wonders of the elaborate circus appear easily in the mind's eye." - Catherine Mallette 09/30/2011
