The circus is a blur of commotion with last minute preparations for the spring tour. Ravi, the high-wire heart throb, becomes jittery when he meets the company’s newly-hired female dwarf. Hours before departure, his magical perceptions are on fire as he witnesses her involvement in a gory bump off.
The circus manager can’t be found. Ravi is desperate to protect his sweetheart and performing partner, Alice. The train creaks away, beginning the long journey with danger stowed on board. Nicknamed the Great Birdman, Ravi steps forward and exposes his true identity—a real risk during edgy, vigilante times of prohibition. A brave move—but will his Suparna abilities be enough to snuff out this fierce demon?
What they're saying about it:
"Moore throws us into an intriguing and vivid word where divine beings scrape by as performers in a depression-era-style circus. The plot is minimal: defeat the villain, get the girl. But the fantasy world is wonderful and I can only hope there might be longer stories to come, in this same setting?" ~Emily Veinglory, POD People
“Le Cirque De Magie offers a classic story line with a supernatural twist. The rich imagery instantly transports you to a circus of the 1920's. A fun read!” ~Lauren,
