Publisher's Summary

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the Most Fantastic Show on Earth....

Three years ago, the Ban changed everything, outlawing certain forms of magic and bringing about the rise of powerful crime syndicates. Now, speakeasies in every city sell illegal charms and jinxes, and bootleggers traffic restricted potion ingredients across the country. But even in this changing world, the magic of the circus still acts as a wondrous escape and provides entertainment for all.? 

Jake Strickland owns one such circus, inherited after an accident ended his career as a rodeo dragon rider. He also inherited the circus’ financial troubles, but since the show became his, he’s slowly managed to turn it into a profitable business once more. Or at least, that’s what he thought. 

When a dangerous mobster comes to collect an old debt, Jake resorts to desperate measures to get the money before a strict deadline. With lives and livelihoods at stake, he battles the clock, his responsibilities to the circus, and a longstanding personal grudge that has festered for years. Can he pay back the mob before it’s too late? And if so, what will it cost him?

Moral is Never Owe Money to the Mafia- Fun Read!

This was such a fun read and the narration was wonderful! I don't want to give anything away so I will keep this short. As for content warnings there is some minor language (less than Harry Potter), no graphic violence, and no sexual content- so PG and 3-4th grade up but would say it's a middle grade read. This is a great mash up of fantasy and adventure with circuses, outlawed magic, mobsters, and so many fun fantasy creatures. Basically, if the description sounded good and intrigued you then you won't be disappointed.

Trouble Under the Big Top

A former rodeo dragon rider fights to save the circus he's been reluctantly running since his father died when gangsters come to collect a debt he didn't know he owed in this exciting, entertaining and often heart-wrenching story, I loved the classic circus story feel, the amazing menagerie animals and the understated romance between the hero and heroine.
Well worth your time.

What a fun entertaining read

As the circus goes from town to town and one town calico gets away, he’s the dragon but that is all in a days work when working for this circus. Jake is just trying to make the bills and entertain people, but when one of the most wanted man who is also a Shapeshifter comes and tells him that his father owed him $400,000 and that he expects Jake to pay it within 30 days, Jake is not only baffled but tells him there’s no way he can pay it. This is when the Shapeshifter threatened his life and says people have been killed for less than saying things like that to me jake changes his mind shakes his head and this is one of the adventure begins and I didn’t even mention the magic card in his back pocket. This book is so full of fun and adventure and comes from the mind with a great imagination. From the showstopper of the train gargoyles to calico the dragon if this book was just about the circus it would be entertaining but with the circus and I’ll be adventure it’s even more awesome! I highly highly recommend this book I gave it five stars because I couldn’t give it more. Not to mention the guy who narrated the book did an awesome job. If you’re still reading this let me in a post script there is so much more to this book but I couldn’t do it justice with a small summary. The summary for the book doesn’t do it justice. Just know this is an awesome awesome listen!
