To quote a famous sportscaster: âOh, my!â This fascinating and delicious novel by Erin Morgenstern is a must-read for all lovers of tales that contain wonderful love stories (it has two!); tales of magic and magicians, circuses and carnivals, miracles and murder. It is eerie, supernatural, mysterious, and moving. It is a story of unscrupulous magicians and wonderful wizards. It has jaw-dropping moments and lump-in-the-throat moments. You will love the characters (except for a couple of them!). Make this tale of ambition and self-sacrifice the next read on your list.
