The show must go on...even when monsters are afoot.
Poet Parker is Romani by birth and a fortune teller by choice. As a member of Mystic Caravan Circus, she's spent the past 10 years using her psychic talents to tell people what their future holds by day and hunting paranormal monsters by night.
You see, Mystic Caravan is more than just a circus - it's also a force of good in a world that needs help fighting evil.
Poet is set in her ways - and happy with her life - until Kade Denton shows up and upends the entire operation. He's loud and proud - and Poet doesn't like anyone telling her what to do.
As the new head of security, Kade thinks his only job is going to be tackling drunken revelers when they get out of hand. He's in for a rude - and bloody - awakening.
When monsters strike and the truth comes out, Kade finds he has to learn on the job with Poet as his somewhat reluctant instructor.
Sparks are flying - both real and figurative - and when a truly terrible beast targets the circus for extermination, it's all magical hands on deck for the final showdown.
Some things are born evil, but the people in Mystic Caravan were born to fight it.
Prepare to be amazed.

Look, the story, overall wasn't bad; this is not a heavy-lifting book, just a fun light read. However, the narration just ruined an otherwise pleasant story. I don't know why Audible is plagued with so many female narrators who sound like over-caffeinated chipmunks (or extremely high-pitched pre-teens). It's not enjoyable to listen to, especially if one asumes that they are purchasing a book for adults. I hate leaving negative reviews, when the negativity is aimed primarily at the narrator; but, this is an AUDIOBOOK site - so, I do think that narration is extremely important in chosing to purchase a book in audio format. The main character is a woman in her 30's, so it's important (to me at least) to have her sound as such.
I would put it mid pack as I have listened to some amazing authors as well as narrators. However, I find myself going back to Amanda M. Lee's books as they are humerous and fun
That would be giving away plots
None specifically stood out. Good read
I hate that I am a bit of a "soup nazi" when it comes to finding books to read. I almost passed on this very interesting story line because it did not have a perfect 5 star rating. It would have been my loss, although I would have escaped being sucked into another interesting series. :)
An entirely different story line. The main character is supposed to be 28 yrs old, but comes across as an immature 14 yr. old girl. The narrator's syrupy, childlike voice does nothing to help bring anything redeemable out of this listening experience.
Added to the pure stupidity of the book.
I purchased this book as it was a recomendation based on my previous purchases.
The idea is great but the execution sucked. These are suppposed to be a dults yet all their focus is on a teeny bopper romamce that seems more like grade school than anything. I would have expected this book to be written for grade schoolers if it wasnt for the occasional swear word.
Twilight was better than this and that says alot. i forced myself to finish the whole story in hopes the story would get more interesting....I was disappointed.
Move on...there is nothing for you here.
Amanda M. Lee once again proves why she is worthy of the title of one of the queens of urban fantasy. I first became familiar with her work with the Wicked Witches of the Midwest series. This new series does not fail to satisfy the itch I developed from the aforementioned series. If you have a somewhat smart ass and snarky sense of humor, you will love her books. Cozy mysteries with a supernatural twist; what's not to love?
