The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Reves (The Circus of Dreams), and it is only open at night.
In The Night Circus, Celia and Marco, two young magicians, are bound into a duel as children and though they recognize that they are playing a game of sorts, they have no idea that only one can be left standing. The circus is merely the stage for the game, a battle of imagination and strength. That they also cartwheel into a charmed love affair complicates the game even further and leaves the fates of everyone involved hanging in the balance.
