"You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul..."
This is a book that stays with you, even when you are doing something other than reading, even when you have closed the covers on the final page.
It is rare that a book makes me so desperately want to be a part of its world. But this is one of those books. It left me longing to wander among the tents, along the paths, to visit the Ice Garden, to climb through the Cloud Maze, to eat the caramel apples and drink the hot chocolate.
This story is ostentatiously about a challenge, about magic, about a circus. But it is about so much more. It is about fate, and destiny, and what it means to be bound to something or someone. It is about answering the everlasting question of if your fate can be changed, if your future is set in stone, if rules can be broken.
It is a love story, but not just about two people. There is the love that people have for dreams, for the place that feels like home, for the experiences they live for and cannot do without. I loved this book.
