Summary

There are many ways to die at the Circus of the Dead.

You’re invited to witness them all.

Mom sent me all the way across the country to the Louisiana bayou to join the circus and help my uncle for the summer. Except there is something not quite right on this swampy cursed island, and after having my fortune told, I can’t leave. 

I try to escape, but Benny, an all too charming ghost gangster tries to kill me by feeding me to a tiger.

Thankfully I’m rescued by Samuel, the incredibly hot ringmaster who can’t be a day over 20. 

Can he?

In addition to avoiding the human scorpion, staying away from the big cats, and having trouble figuring out who’s dead and who’s alive, I have to find a way to escape this horror show. 

Will I get out of the circus alive or will I join their army of ghosts and become a murderer myself?

😀

I don’t normally read this type of book. But you have to read or listen to this one. I hated putting the book down because of needing to go to work or to sleep. I will be looking for other books like this series, as i enjoyed them that much. I would recommend circus of the dead to everyone.

Out of touch.

While I did enjoy a good portion of the story, a lot of it was racially insensitive. What bothered me the most was the appropriation of a primarily black religion being translated into a white cheerleader’s hobby. Beyond that many of the characters motivations were very poorly established early on causing strange twists and turns that don’t make sense for the character’s personality. If you want a thoughtless read this is good for you but if you’re hyper critical and have any knowledge of witchcraft in the slightest this book will infuriate you.

The most unique series!

Sarah's voice is smooth and enjoyable. I wish she did a few more accents, but she really does a great job on a full cast of characters to voice!

I love the mystery, twists, and turns in these books. Every one surprises me!

I'm not a fan of love triangles, usually, but the mystery and non - angsty way this one is done actually added to the series.

Callie is crafty and smart, but the surprises keep coming! Can she save herself? The islanders? Her love?

You'll have to listen to find out!

Nope...

First of all, I thought the idea behind this series was amazing! ...but... I hated this series. It had so much potential and I was so so so dissappinted... The main character was written as a whiney teenager who's a complete idiot but she's supposed to out smart these powerful beings? Not to mention she falls in love at first glance.. twice... there was so much that was annoying about the main character, I had a hard time finishing the series. My OCD wouldn't allow me to just quit, so I begrudgingly finished it...

Great series

This author has always amazed me at how quickly I get sucked into the worlds she writes. This world is so unique that the mystery, suspense and so much more paint such a vivid image in your mind. Poor Callie thinks she has figured things out just to have something blindside her and throws her back into confusion, specially when she wakes up as a ghost. I have grown to love this narrator from other books and was surprised to see she had narrated this one.

I liked the ending.....

I'm glad that I listened to the complete series and not one book at a time - I probably would not have continued to buy the series individually,. the narrator was annoying in the beginning, but I got used to her. by the middle of book 2. but I liked the story -

WARNING SEXUAL ASSAULT AND PEDOPHILIA

This is probably the WORST series I’ve ever read in my entire life. I listened to the first book and thought it was funny how cheesy it was. Then I got to the second book and… what the actual hell! It was all sexual assault and pedophilia! Having the villain grab at children and force Cali to do gross stuff when she’s only 17. I hate this series with a passion. DO NOT READ!!!!!
