Since a very young age the two have been locked in a contest against each other, a contest that ends only when one player is left standing. Although Celia and Marco are competing with each other they have the misfortune of falling in love with each other.

Morgenstern weaves a world that the reader could only hope to witness first hand. The Night Circus wraps you in mystery, leads you though intrigue, and tugs at your heart strings
