QUICK NOTE...Update: 10/10/19

Good news: We're back home! Bad news: It's like Apocalypse Heck Part III.

The one year Hurricane Michael anniversary is already here. Where did the time go...and yet it feels like forever. You don't realize how much you take for granted until it's all gone. I'm grateful my family/fur babies survived, and I know they are just "things", but sadly, in this life, those "things" help us get through every day. So yes, "happy" yet not. Every day is still a struggle...not just for my family, but so many others.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

About the book...

Micah Tuttle--magician in training--lives and works at Circus Mirandus alongside his guardian, the ancient and powerful Lightbender.

The circus is a place filled with dazzling fire shows, stubborn unicorns, and magicians from every corner of the world. And Micah is doing everything he can to prove he belongs there. When a dangerous enemy from the past threatens his new home, Micah will have to untangle the mystery of his own potent magic, and he'll have to do it fast. With trouble this deadly on its way, every magician will have to be ready to fight. Even the youngest.

Oh honestly guys, this book was so special! I enjoyed visiting Circus Mirandus once again oh so much, seeing old friends and making new ones throughout our journey, despite the inherent dangers that lie within.  It was marvelous to see just how much Micah has changed in the little time he's been with this merry band of wonder makers, and though he still struggles with his particular brand of magic, he pursues everything with such heart, you can't help  how much you believe that he will find what he so desperately desires. 


We see a new side to beloved characters like the Lightbender (so he's human after all), and uncover the evil that lies in indifference (here's looking at you Starling). We learn that sometimes the most  seemingly insignificant powers can pack the biggest punch. We discover that Ideas like Fish have a proper Moment when they meet their Someone, but the path they take to meet that destiny can me wide, varied, and improbable...but not impossible if only someone has enough heart. We cherish the moments revealed in memories while creating new ones with this cast of performers that may not change your life, but they will impact your heart. 

Ladies and gents, girls and boys of all ages, if you are looking for your next grand adventure through the world of Middle Grade Fiction, this one is SO for you!
