El circo de la noche

by Erin Morgenstern

El circo llega sin aviso, sin anuncio. Simplemente aparece. Dentro de sus carpas blancas y negras se vive una experiencia única, un banquete para los sentidos en el que se puede explorar un laberinto de nubes, caminar en un jardín de hielo o perderse en los ricos aromas de canela y caramelo que flotan en el aire. Bienvenidos al Circo de los sueños.Pero detrás de estas maravillosas escenas existe una feroz competencia --un duelo entre dos magos jóvenes, Celia y Marcos, que han sido entrenados desde la infancia para competir en un "juego". Obligados a participar por sus caprichosos amos, sin que ellos lo sepan, éste es un juego en el que sólo uno puede sobrevivir y el circo no es más que el escenario para una extraordinaria batalla de imaginación y voluntad. A pesar de todo, Celia y Marco caen irremediablemente enamorados --un amor profundo y mágico que causa que las luces parpadeen y el ambiente se caliente con solo tocarse las manos. Pero sus amos siguen moviendo los hilos y el amor imprevisto de Celia y Marco les obliga a intervenir, dejando la vida de todos, desde los artistas a los espectadores, en gran peligro.Divertida, original y fascinante, El circo de la noche es una rica historia de amor que capta la imaginación y encanta los sentidos.

The Night Circus

by Erin Morgenstern

In this mesmerizing debut, a competition between two magicians becomes a star-crossed love story.The circus arrives at night, without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within nocturnal black and white striped tents awaits a unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stand awestruck as a tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and gaze in wonderment at an illusionist performing impossible feats of magic.Welcome to Le Cirque des Rêves. Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is underway - a contest between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in "a game," in which each must use their powers of illusion to best the other. Unbeknownst to them, this game is a duel to the death, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will.From the Hardcover edition.
