As magicians face off in a barren, frozen landscape in order to secure their place in Conquering Circus, an unexpected danger arises. Magicians are going missing, the victims of an unknown force. As the stakes rise and the terror mounts, will the participants unveil their secrets and unravel the mystery? Or will it all come tumbling down? A startling and romantic debut will draw you in, at your own peril…

Janella Angeles is a Filipino-American writer who works in children’s publishing by day, penning novels by night. She graduated summa cum laude from Emerson College with a B.A. in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, but found the most valuable way of learning to write was in creating glorious Harry Potter fanfiction and reading obscene amounts of books. She currently resides in Massachusetts.

Roshani Chokshi is the author of acclaimed middle grade and young adult novels drawing on mythology and folklore. Her work is Locus and Nebula nominated. Her New York Times bestselling series includes The Star-Touched Queen duology, The Gilded Wolves, and Aru Shah and The End of Time, which was recently optioned for film by Paramount Pictures.
