Description

 

A dazzling, high-octane read filled with death-defying acrobatics, circus crowds with an appetite for disaster, and two forbidden teenage lovers trying to escape the shackles of their very different lives.

Set in a near-future England where the poorest people in the land must watch their children be taken by a travelling circus – to perform at the mercy of hungry lions, sabotaged high wires and a demonic ringmaster.

The ruling class visit the circus as an escape from their structured, high-achieving lives – pure entertainment with a bloodthirsty edge.

Ben, the teenage son of a draconian government minister, visits the circus for the first time and falls instantly in love with Hoshiko, a young performer.

They come from harshly different worlds – but must join together to escape the circus and put an end to its brutal sport.

  • All the pace, action and danger of The Hunger Games
  • all the star-crossed romance of Noughts and Crosses
  • this book packs some powerful political punches which never compromise the moving, brave and dramatic story.
  • The mesmerising, heart-in-mouth action set pieces in the circus are breathtakingly tense
