Book: Pantomime by Laura Lam

Pantomime by Laura Lam

Expected Publication Date: February 5, 2013 by Strange Chemistry



R. H. Ragona’s Circus of Magic is the greatest circus of Ellada. Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass—remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone—are wonders beyond the wildest imagination. It’s a place where anything seems possible, where if you close your eyes you can believe that the magic and knowledge of the vanished Chimaera is still there. It’s a place where anyone can hide.

Iphigenia Laurus, or Gene, the daughter of a noble family, is uncomfortable in corsets and crinoline, and prefers climbing trees to debutante balls. Micah Grey, a runaway living on the streets, joins the circus as an aerialist’s apprentice and soon becomes the circus’s rising star.

But Gene and Micah have balancing acts of their own to perform, and a secret in their blood that could unlock the mysteries of Ellada.

Why Am I Waiting On This Book:

If you are following my book haul lists, then you really have good reasons to ask this question. It's been a month since I got ARC of Pantomime by Laura Lam at NetGalley. So why didn't I read it yet?

The culprit is 2013 Debut Author Challenge. Since Pantomime is Laura Lam's debut novel, I am going to read this book next year... So I am not waiting for a book to be published but waiting for a new year to start....

Let's Talk:

Do you like premise for Pantomime by Laura Lam?
