Waterstones Says

A magical novel suffused in a rich atmosphere all its own, Morgenstern's modern masterpiece revolves around the eponymous nocturnal institution and the unforgettable characters that inhabit it.

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads: Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn.

As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. Le Cirque des Reves. The Circus of Dreams. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter.

The Starless Sea, the magical second novel from the author of the The Night Circus, is available for pre-order now.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The Night Circus made me happy. Playful and intensely imaginative, Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for. This is a marvelous book

Enchanting, and affecting... A strikingly beautiful world, in spite of its darkness - Guardian

Dazzling - Marie Claire

Deliciously inventive... Don't imagine this is a light, frothy tale. For all her humorous touches, Morgernstern...has produced something darker than night - Scotsman

The only response to this novel is simply: wow. It is a breathtaking feat of imagination, a flight of fancy that pulls you in and wraps you up in its spell - The Times

Charming, magical, mysterious, enthralling - Daily Mirror

Lushly imagined, extremely charming and very, very readable - Scotland on Sunday

Morgenstern displays a conjurer's dexterity as she develops her tale, and you'd need a heart of stone not to melt at the melodramatic denouement - Daily Mail

The Night Circus pulls you into a world as dark as it is dazzling, fully-realized but still something out of a dream. You will not want to leave it

Pure pleasure... Erin Morgenstern is a gifted, classic storyteller, a tale-teller, a spinner of the charmed and mesmerizing - I had many other things I was supposed to be doing, but the book kept drawing me back in and I tore through it. You can be certain this riveting debut will create a group of rêveurs all its own

“Absolutely wonderful”

I'm not easily pleased, I find plenty of fiction disappointing, however, I've just emerged from this book, reluctantly, and I'm almost grieving for it's loss. It leaves you wanting more, and yet... More
