The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus is a magical circus, arriving unannounced at night and gone by the next morning. It features many tents, some with the usual circus acts, some with exhibitions never seen anywhere else. The true story of the circus, though, remains hidden from the two magicians who run it, Celia and Marco. Unknown to both of them is that they've been groomed since childhood for a competition that they didn't know existed between them. Instead they fall deeply in love. But there can only be one winner. Erin Morgenstern's debut novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Minneapolis Star Tribune saying, "If the preamble -- so aptly titled 'Anticipation' -- doesn't make you sit right down on the floor of your library or bookstore to see what Morgenstern conjures up next, you may not be the right reader for this novel. I'll wager, however, that you will fall quickly under her spell."
