I first discovered this story on Wattpad, a website where anyone can start writing their own story and share it with the world. As a fantasy lover, I busied myself with many different stories on the site. When Finvarra's Circus was first recommended to me by the site, I randomly added it to my library, not thinking much of it. As I first began reading, I realized this was like no other book that I had read before. The unique, descriptive, and deep writing style had me roped in and attached to the characters from the very beginning to the end. I finally had my own way of escape from my stressful teenage life just by reading a few chapters from this story. I waited each day with much anticipation for the next chapter to come out. I sighed, cried, laughed, and smiled more and more each time I read a new chapter or learned about a new character. When the tearful ending was finally updated, I reread the entire story over and over again. I first heard that it was being published after an announcement posted by the author and my heart soared with excitement. I preorderd my copy and dove right back into the story that I knew and loved. Even now after finishing Finvarra's Circus for the millionth time, it still fills me with so much happiness and joy as when I was first reading it. I am now eighteen and though I still struggle with coming to terms with such a scary, stressful reality, I know I can always find an escape in the pages of this beautiful story that I will now have Forever. I don't know if Monica Sanz will ever see this, but thank you so much for writing such a beautiful book and for showing us readers that there is always magic in the world if you do not doubt and always believe.
