A ballerina, twirling on a wire high above the crowd. Horses, prancing like salsa dancers. Trapeze artists, flying like somersaulting falcons. And magic crackling through the air. Welcome to the Cirque American!

Sixteen-year-old Jules Maroni’s dream is to follow in her father’s footsteps as a high-wire walker. When her family is offered a prestigious role in the new Cirque American, it seems that Jules and the Amazing Maronis will finally get the spotlight they deserve. But the presence of the Flying Garcias may derail her plans. For decades, the two rival families have avoided each other as sworn enemies.

Jules ignores the drama and focuses on the wire, skyrocketing to fame as the girl in a red tutu who dances across the wire at death-defying heights. But when she discovers a peacock feather—an infamous object of bad luck—planted on her costume, Jules nearly loses her footing. She has no choice but to seek help from the unlikeliest of people: Remy Garcia, son of the Garcia clan matriarch and the best trapeze artist in the Cirque.

As more mysterious talismans believed to possess unlucky magic appear, Jules and Remy unite to find the culprit. And if they don’t figure out what’s going on soon, Jules may be the first Maroni to do the unthinkable: fall.

Why I’m Excited:

Let’s see: a circus, a feuding family, star-crossed lovers, trapeze artists, mysterious talismans. That cover! Absolutely everything about this sounds amazing. I haz now, please?

  1. Circus setting!! 😀 There are a few books coming this year involving circuses and I am excited for ALL of them. This cover, though, blows me a away! There is nothing else quite like it out there right now and it's just gorgeous.


  2. Okay, for a minute there I thought it said Girl on Fire, and then I was wondering what the hell she was doing, and then oh. I need to wake up today. You know, I haven't actually read anything to do with a circus. I so need to get to The Night Circus, and The Immortal Circus or anything that has circus in it. But it does sound great! 🙂

  3. There's just something about a circus or carnival setting that always gets my attention. Although, with how much I loved The Night Circus I feel like I'm always going to compare it to future related reads.
