The Immortal Circus by A.R. Kahler

Monday, February 18, 2013

Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can't quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded—especially not when she realizes the devilishly attractive ringleader Mab is the Faerie Queen of legend…and that she and the rest of the troupe are locked in an age-old rivalry between the otherworldly Courts.
Aided by her friends Kingston—a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart—and his smart-ass assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past—and future—than she bargains for.

The show's just beginning.

Goodreads Summary

I’m very glad Krystal asked me to review this book! The main character, Vivienne, is a well-rounded character who the reader will come to love. The Immortal Circus  really didn’t get in-depth with many of the other characters which was a bummer.  The reader will definitely want to get to know these very unique, interesting characters better by the end of the novel. This book is very dark,has a magical quality, and leaves you with wanting to know more about what is actually going on. I didn’t feel like anything was forced or slow… the plot moved at a great pace. The only problem, for me, was that the mystery wasn’t really a mystery. I could guess what was going on after I read to about the middle of the book. That’s okay though! The plotline still captivates you and the reading ride is enjoyable. Again, some things about the characters weren’t explained which left me thinking about them way too long, but the story itself still kept me engaged! Kahler definitely has a fun imagination and I’ll pick up another one of her books. I recommend Immortal Circus to readers who like mystery (kind of… you figure it out pretty quickly) and a little bit of darkness.

5/5 stars
