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.
