review 1: The prologue and first chapter were exactly what I expected from this book. A gritty behind-the-scenes look at a circus. However, beyond that the story just didn't pan out for me. Sure, there was plenty of action, but it didn't really interest me. I guess I was expecting more of the circus life rather than Wild Boy and Clarissa taking an adventure to discover a killer. I was rather bored throughout the duration of the book. Plus, I had figured out who the cloaked figure was early on, so the appeal of whodunit was gone almost immediately.

... morew and working as freak, his life gets even more complicated and painful when he is framed for murder. Teaming up with a raven-haired acrobat, he must find the true murderer and escape the hordes who wish to see him hang. I was rooting for Wild Boy from page one - he is a strangely vulnerable and brilliant character! less

THIS BOOK WAS RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME! I love my friend for recommending it to me
Great story - even though I'd guessed who the killer was. Brilliant
Fast reading and well written. Written as well as Dickens.
