The Shimmering Circus is a historical fantasy series set in the late Gilded Age. If you like reading about spooky stuff in a circus, are intrigued by how carnies lived at the turn of the century, or have wondered what it would be like to come of age and fall in love under a big top, then the Shimmering Circus series is for you.
For the new circus season, Evelyn is offered a job as secretary to the mysterious circus manager.
As she embarks across the Midwest, Evelyn must prepare both her body and mind for a long-distance swim, all while developing her magical abilities, making new allies, and navigating some very confusing feelings for a fellow performer.
Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue is a must-read for everyone!

"This is no ordinary circus... A glistening, deliciously dark page-turner, 'Avery's Ghost' promises - and delivers - a wonderful reading experience. Vivid characters, an evocative setting, and a twisting narrative that keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you like 'The Night Circus' or 'Daughter of the Burning City', I would highly recommend this book."
Great read! I was so involved I finished it in one sitting and now I need book 2!! Highly recommended!!!
