This book is a tale about a person who lives among a travelling circus. It's so much more than that to though. This person has a secret, and one unlike any other. Keeping that secret is part of the story.
There is also amazing characters brought to life in this story. *Swooning over Drystan*
And lastly, some romance bit here and there are thrown in.
All of these elements make for a really interesting story. The only thing negative I felt while reading is not being sure what era it was in, and you really must have some sort of keen interest in the circus to keep your interests. The circus aspect is just so woven into the tale, even though it is centered around this person.
I liked it, but am not loving it.
Will I read Shadowplay? Yes! Especially after the twisty turns at the very end of the story.
