Why did I love this book?
I loved the heart of this book. It’s queer and Jewish and a historical fantasy—what’s not to love?
It has one of the best twists I’ve ever encountered. I still ask myself, “How did I not see that coming?” Of course the answer is that J. R. Dawson does such a good job with the plot that readers won’t see it before it smacks them in the face. (In the best way, of course.)
Dawson made me fall in love with her characters and the circus all over again. Plus, now I really want my own Spark.
