When seventeen-year-old Gracie Hart gets caught stealing a ride on a circus train, she expects to be arrested. Instead, she is offered a job as the new assistant to the circus magician and knife-thrower, Jack. He's charismatic and genteel, but his aim isn't perfect-hence the position opening.
The work is better than jail, but once Gracie starts performing with Jack, she begins finding threatening notes hidden in her costume.
At first, she thinks she's being haunted by the ghost of the last assistant, but she can't shake the feeling that things are even stranger than they appear. Plagued by reoccurring déjà vu, cryptic notes, and suspicions that Jack may not be who he seems to be, Gracie is swept into the supernatural secrets surrounding Vincenzio's Circus Troupe & Menagerie.
And when a second death is discovered in the circus, one thing becomes clear: if Gracie can't figure out the mysteries under the big top, her next venue might be the afterlife.
"The gaslamp fantasy setting is brilliantly detailed. e story itself is passionate and irresistible. Fans of dazzling, action-packed adventures will not be disappointed." —JORDAN ELIZABETH, author of Cogling

Phenomenal read. From the beginning you are drawn in further and further and trying to figure out what is real or if Gracie is really losing her mind. A spectacular blending of the circus and eco-fi alter dimensions.
