  • Julia Ember

    Argh, this was such a frustrating book! The premise is so intriguing and the opening chapter sets up what was promising to be a very interesting story and mystery. Circus performers mysteriously disappearing into thin air during their acts--how can someone mess that up? Look no further than this boo...
