When a stranger joins the cast of Vagabond Circus - a circus that is run by Dream Travelers and features real magic - mysterious events start happening. The once orderly grounds of the circus become riddled with hidden threats. And the ringmaster realizes not only is his circus and its magic at risk, but also his very life.
Vagabond Circus caters to the skeptics. Without skeptics, it would close its doors. This is because Vagabond Circus runs for two reasons and only two reasons: first and foremost to provide the lost and lonely Dream Travelers a place to be illustrious. And secondly, to show the nonbelievers that there's still magic in the world. If they believe, then they care, and if they care, then they don't destroy. They stop the small abuse that day by day breaks down humanity's spirit. If Vagabond Circus makes one skeptic believe in magic, then they halt the cycle, just a little bit. They allow a little more love into this world. That's Dr. Dave Raydon's mission. And that's why this ringmaster recruits. That's why he directs. That's why he puts on a show that makes people question their beliefs. He wants the world to believe in magic once again.

I haven't read the book yet. I will after Christmas.
The story line. The thought of dream travel is kind of novel. I also think a forbidden love in a circus is a new twist.
When Zuma and Finley do the new act and the reaction from Dave, Jack and the others are so amazed. I found this exciting and brings shows Finley in a new light.
No. I like to break them up as time allows.
I thought where Sara Noffke left you standing was a good spot for book two.
Maybe there will be true love there.
Great circus read
Suspended by Sarah Noffke was a great read. Suspended revolves around the Vagabond Circus. It is a circus that is run by and features some Dream Travelers. The circus was started to give Dream Travelers a place to be and to show people that magic exists. I really enjoyed reading about the circus and what transpires when a stranger joins. This was a good book that I recommend to everyone.
Librarian with chronic migraines which cuts into reading a LOT so I listen and it is awesome for me keeps me in the blogging/reviewing game.
Do you believe in magic? Maybe after this circus, the Vagabond Circus. It is a different kind of circus, although I can't quite put my finger on it yet, they have the normal circus things, acrobats, trapeze artists, and jugglers, but something is different about this circus, something magical.
Author Sarah Noffke has another hit on her hands with another spin on her wonderful dream traveler world. This book has plenty of action and suspense and that is before she throws in the circus part of the story which by the way is awesome and if you didn't know better you would have thought she actually spent time with a circus (she did). I had the audiobook version and voice actor Steve Barnes does a amazing job with all the different characters, their unique personalities and stories. He kept the story exciting and me on the edge of my seat just waiting to find out what happens. This is a awesome match between author and narrator and I can't wait to hear what happens next under the big top.
An amazingly magical and captivating audiobook that propels you into another of Sarah Noffke's mesmerizing Dream Traveler worlds. This story captures you from the start, taking you on a breathtaking journey of intrigue, deception, mystery and romance. The whispery, slightly breathy voice of the narrator has a mystery to it that speaks of suspense and fear. His voice draws you into the story and holds you captive, mirroring the way Dave Raydon draws in and holds the audience spellbound at his circus. His tone, pitch and intonation changes with each character, loosing that breathy quality and becoming stronger, giving unique voices to the individuals. The narrators voice fits the circus perfectly and brings Sarah's amazing characters to life.
In the Vagabond Circus, Dave Raydon gathers orphans and the lost, bringing Dream Travels together, giving them purpose and a sense of belonging. His aim is to bring magic and joy back into ordinary lives, through the gifts and talents of his Dream Traveller circus. Things were running smoothly at the circus but everything begins to unwind when a new talent is introduced into the mix. Finley is a complex character with many hidden facets that are slowly revealed throughout the book. He is secretive, cocky and hides behind brash remarks. Zuma is a strong female character, she is passionate about the circus but little else manages to touch her, till she met Finley. The love/hate chemistry between Zuma and Finley is captivating, and their developing and ever changing relationship draws you in, you become so embroiled in these characters that you actually hurt when they hurt. Sarah's enthralling writing and the great narration makes you feel their connection; you experience their mistrust, longing, hope and anxieties. All the characters in this book are appealing and have some depth to them; from Dave's persuasive, open personality, to grumpy Sunshine's empathic thoughts, they all add layers to the circus' world. The plot is intriguing, with twists and surprises along the way. It draws you in, keeps you captivated and in the end, leaves you dying to get the next book. This is an amazing story with great writing, intriguing plot, well-developed characters and delightful narration. I will look forward to hearing the next in the series. I received the audiobook at no cost and under no obligation.
This was such an amazing book. I can't wait for the next one! The narrator was excellent and really brought the whole story to life. The story itself was also great. I couldn't stop listening until it was done, and then I just wanted more. :)
