it was amazing

Um... where do I start? Brilliant. Magical. Unique. Shocking. These are the words that come to mind when I think about this utterly gripping and deliciously bizarre novel.

There is not a lot I can say here without giving away the twist (and trust me your jaw will DROP), but I will say that Laura Lam handles a complex and emotional issue in a mature and accessible way.

The love story is endearing - as are the motley band of characters: circus freaks and performers, and the bourgeoisie. You will love both Gene and Micah - and I refuse to put in spoilers prior to the release of the novel, so I shall say no more - SORRY!

I am already eagerly awaiting another installment of Pantomime. These are characters I need and want and hope to spend more time with. Bring on a sequel - or in circus speak: BRAVO! ENCORE!

Disclosure: We are published by the same imprint, which is how I got my hands on an advance copy!
