Don’t be shy and come inside! The Nightingale is waiting to take flight!
Welcome to The Nightingale Circus! Listen to the singer with an enchanting voice. Watch the knife throwers who are also prosthetic builders. Here is a telecharger on the run and a ballerina with no lungs. There is a broken pole dancer and an Asian bot. You’ll be amazed by a regular girl who becomes exquisite and frightening at the same time.
They’re better known as the famous Nightingale, the Blade Masters, the Magician, the Swan, the Firebird, the Rocket Girl, and the Golden Lady.
They are all waiting to tell you their story about how they came to the circus and why they stayed.
This is a companion short story collection to Broken People.
Review by Dana Marie
This read is not my first rodeo with Ioana Visan’s books. Let me tell you why. Mostly because her books are interesting, unique, and have characters you can easily get vested in. I had dove into “The Impaler Legacy” series previously and was ecstatic to start another of her series when asked.
There are many interesting characters. I don’t want to linger on any one specifically. You will be introduced to the Nightingale, the Blade Masters, the Magician, the Swan, the Firebird, the Rocket Girl, and the Golden Lady. Since this is a prequel to the series you will have plenty of reading time to catch up on them all. Each character has an alteration or prosthetic that brings their unique story to the table. I can tell you that I can’t wait to see how these characters really come to life.
The Nightingale Circus has a science fiction feel to it. The time of the story isn’t one hundred percent certain to me. However, it wasn’t needed to keep you reading through. I’m hoping to see more detail about the places the circus sets up in the future stories. Since this is the start of “The Broken People” series, I have no doubt in my mind that Ioana Visan will disappoint in any way.
Are you looking for a different read? Then this book is for you. It has interesting characters, a unique story, and promise of more to come. I’m really looking forward to continuation of this series.
