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.

*review originally posted on A Bibliophile's Reverie* This was my favorite book out of the three. It is very strong and while there were still many questions still unanswered, I thought it came together very nicely. I loved the characters, especially Kingston, and they were all individual and very well-developed. The descriptions were great and I felt as if I was in the circus itself. This book had a great combination mystery, romance, suspense, fantasy, and action. I was never bored throughout the story. I loved the relationships that unfolded and how around every corner there was a surprise. Definitely give this book a 5/5!
I was just browsing books one day and fell upon this one. Once I read what it was bout I was interested enough to read it and see if it is as mystery as the overview said. And I do have to say, A. R. Kahler didn’t let you down. When I was reading this book I could feel the passion he put into this book. It feel like the author had put a spell on me and I was taking out of this world and moved into another. For an author to make you feel that way, at least for me, is extremely rare. I was so absorbed in this novel that I finished it in one setting. There was nothing I would change in this book. I loved how he kept on putting a new twist here and there just to throw you off and keep you wondering what was going on. I do have to say that this first book of the Immortal Circus, A. R. Kahler did a wonderful job taking you into another world of mystery, fantasy and intrigue. I love the way he spun his web of mystery, promises, intrigue and drawing you into its beauty. Trapping you into its clutches where putting down this book was impossible. You were trapped having to finish and you were happy about it. And once you were done where you could be free of this web you were trapped in you didn’t want to leave. You wanted to stay and help make this web you were trapped in your home.
It's simply amazing!
