The Immortal Circus: Act Two (Kindle Serial), by A. R. Kahler

"The second book in a series is always tough but I thought the author did a great job of advancing the storyline and keeping things developing, giving enough review of book 1 to jog the memory without being heavy-handed about it. In terms of character development, this is really the Vivienne show and we learn a lot about her back-story - although not without some twists and misdirection along the way. I actually was not sure for a while whether Kingston was actually a good guy or a bad guy - or what that even meant. Kahler is a sly devil in terms of getting you to question who you should be rooting for. The writing style is right up my alley - the dialogue has good rhythm and some of the prose really crackles. No sophomore slump here, just an excellent continuation of a clever, engaging story." -- Amazon reviewer
This book is a Kindle Serial. Kindle Serials are stories published in episodes, with future episodes delivered at no additional cost. This serial currently contains one episode out of an estimated five total episodes, and new episodes will be delivered every two weeks.

Vivienne is almost content with her new life in the Cirque des Immortels. She has moved up from selling cotton candy to telling fortunes, she has a gorgeous, magical boyfriend, Kingston...and no one has been murdered since the clash between the otherworldly Courts. Her life under the faerie big top would be perfect, in fact, if not for the nightmares and visions that compel her to seek and confront her half-remembered past. But for Viv, not knowing her past may well be a blessing. There's a reason she ran away. But can she truly escape herself?
The second act of the fantastically evocative Cirque des Immortels series, The Immortal Circus: Act Two draws readers further into a world that's at once wonderful, seductive...and deadly.

Meet the Author

Alex is many things, but first and foremost, he's a Sagittarius.

In the past few years he's taught circus in Amsterdam and Madrid, gotten madly lost in the Scottish wilderness, drummed with Norse shamans, and received his Masters in Creative Writing from Glasgow University. And that's the abbreviated list.

He is the author of the tantalizing CIRQUE DES IMMORTELS trilogy, which debuted in 12/12 from 47North. ACT TWO premieres June '13. MARTYR, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series, THE HUNTED, will be published 10/14 by Spencer Hill Press.

When he's not writing or climbing in the rafters, he's probably outside, staring at the clouds. And seeing as he now resides in Seattle, there are clouds aplenty.

He is represented by Laurie McLean of Foreword Literary.
