The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precedes it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking moments, which opens only at night.

The night circus is a story of an ancient dual between 2 schools of magical knowledge: old and new. Two young magicians, Celia and Marco are trained since childhood
(unaware of each other) by their instructors for a competition/game. Nothing much is said to them about the game i.e. rules of the game, how long it would take and how will the winner be determined.

During the course of the game, the two illusionist fall in love. Later in the game, it is revealed that the winner is the one who is left standing/alive and the circus is only a stage. It becomes difficult for them to be in-love and continue with the game.

I really enjoyed the writing style and the plot twist, even though it was something out of my reading comfort zone.
