“R.H. Ragona’s Circus of Magic is the greatest circus of Ellada. Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass – remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone – are wonders beyond the wildest imagination. It’s a place where anything seems possible, where if you close your eyes you can believe that the magic and knowledge of the vanished Chimeras is still there. It’s a place where anyone can hide.
Iphigenia Laurus, or Gene, the daughter of a noble family, is uncomfortable in corsets and crinoline, and prefers climbing trees to debutante balls. Micah Grey, a runaway living on the streets, joins the circus as an aerialist’s apprentice and soon becomes the circus’s rising star. But Gene and Micah have balancing acts of their own to perform, and a secret in their blood that could unlock the mysteries of Ellada.”
And that is the blurb for Laura Lam’s Pantomine!
…What? No.. No, sorry, ladies and gentlemen.. This book is NOT about panting mimes.
I swear by the heavens, the blurb is enough to pluck most people up by their ears and take them for the ride! Still.. if you remain unconvinced of the beauty in words alone, please judge this book by its cover!
Drum roll please!
Convinced yet? Yeah, me too. God, it’s so gorgeous! When Laura first emailed it to me, it took my breath away, and it still does; “Somewhere, there’s a place for everyone” is especially beautiful.
Pantomine will be released in February 2013..
