Synopsis: When a stranger joins the cast of Vagabond Circus—a circus that is run by Dream Travelers and features real magic—mysterious events start happening. The once orderly grounds of the circus become riddled with hidden threats. And the ringmaster realizes not only are his circus and its magic at risk, but also his very life.
Vagabond Circus caters to the skeptics. Without skeptics, it would close its doors. This is because Vagabond Circus runs for two reasons and only two reasons: first and foremost to provide the lost and lonely Dream Travelers a place to be illustrious. And secondly, to show the nonbelievers that there’s still magic in the world. If they believe, then they care, and if they care, then they don’t destroy. They stop the small abuse that day-by-day breaks down humanity’s spirit. If Vagabond Circus makes one skeptic believe in magic, then they halt the cycle, just a little bit. They allow a little more love into this world. That’s Dr. Dave Raydon’s mission. And that’s why this ringmaster recruits. That’s why he directs. That’s why he puts on a show that makes people question their beliefs. He wants the world to believe in magic once again.
Review: Sarah Noffke has done it again. The Dream Traveler’s world has expanded into the lives of an amazing circus act that strives to bring magic back into peoples’ lives. The story surrounding the characters was mysterious, interesting, and dangerous, leaving me holding my breath before I turned the page. Each character was believable and endearing in their own way. I loved guessing what their dream traveler were going to be. It’s always a fun surprise when they reveal what gifts they have! I can’t wait to see what happens in book two.
And that cover is amazing! The colors and figures definitely capture the essence of “Suspended”
