Publisher's Summary

Murdered contortionists aren't exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can't quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded - because forever means something quite different at the Cirque des Immortels.

Aided by her friends Kingston - a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart - and his sarcastic assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past - and future - than she bargains for.

The show's just beginning. Step right up....

    Story
    "Slow start, hard to get into but gets better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book was very hard to get into and lacked direction till the end. However, second book gets more into the story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The concept is good but not strong. Second book is more embracive and worth reading the first.


    What does Amy McFadden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a great job with Lilith character and overall great will all the voices. She paints a good picture.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, I would like to see this as a movie. I believe it could be amazing if produced right.

    Story
    "I Swear if I hear "says" again i am going to screa"
    Would you listen to The Immortal Circus again? Why?

    I most likely will not listen to it again, do to the fact that the author doesn't seem to realize that there are more than one tense, to the word "say""He says" "I says" "she says" "Mab says" I mean come on! there is say said says. I felt like they really needed a thesaurus to cover the lack of vocabulary. Other than this little and very annoying issue, the book was great. It was a enjoy take on the faye courts.

    "Very different story, dark"

    Narrator is awesome. Story has lots of secrets and keeps you guessing. It does have an ending but still leaves questions. Good for me the trilogy is already written. The next trilogy is good also.

    "Good story, couldn't stand the narrator"

    The story was great. Interesting, character development, wide opened for a series. I'll be sure to read the next one!

    The narrator made me want to stop listening. Unnecessary voice pitches, and every character except for the main one sounded like a "valley girl". Very irritating and grating.

    Story
    "it was so bad...."

    the performance was so bad that I couldn't get past the first 5 minutes of the book. I have no idea if this is a good novel. this just goes to show that it's probably better to get the hard copy of a book then listen to someone else's interpretation. Leave this one up to your imagination.

    Story
    "Enjoyable Quick Listen"
    What did you love best about The Immortal Circus?

    So, I accidentally read the first book of the sequel trilogy, Pale Queen Rising, before listening to The Immortal Circus. But it kind of worked. It made me want more backstory. So I came to listen to The Immortal Circus, and it did not fail to deliver. I was constantly surprised, confused, excited. It was interesting and had just enough twists to keep you wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    See above


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Since this is the second book I've listened to narrated by Amy McFadden, I have gotten used to her style. I enjoy it now. She has a frank, wry style of narration. It works for these characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Welcome to the Circus, where all your dreams become nightmares."

    Story
    "Best carnival story since "Something Wicked This Way Comes""


    It all begins as a mistery plot, with a touch of "Miss Marple". But then it evolves in a very "Bradburesque" undertone. Couldn't wait to see the end, can't wait to buy and read the other books of the saga.
    Fantastic entertainment for 14 yr or older. Would require C1/C2 English language proficiency.

    Narration's quite adequated, I could neatly read/hear at 1,25 speed. Rythm and expression of narrator helps to get into the plot.

    Excellent work.

    Story
    "REMARKABLE journey into an alternate reality!"

    I got hooked by "Pale Queen Rising." Not a part of this series although there is some crossover with the characters.

    This story unfolds the tale of the Immortal Circus giving a broad foundation for the other pieces of this wonderful alternate reality.

    The action is fast paced and the characters are written with depth and intrigue. You want to know more.
