Summary

“Congratulations Callie, you’re the puppet now.”

What the devil does that mean? I’ve finally succeeded in doing away with Samuel, but I’m not really in charge of the island at all.

In fact, the treachery runs deeper than I ever thought possible, and if I’m not careful, every soul on the island - both living and dead - will want to kill me for what I’ve done unless I discover who is really in charge.

Do I have the ability to overcome myself and do what I need to do, or will I have to stand by and watch everyone I love die?

What's the worst that could happen ?

Fantastic, just when you think things can't get any worse. You'd be wrong because they absolutely do, Book 3 is really dark and intense. So much happens in this that it leaves your head spinning, I don't think there's any words that could do this series justice. Circus of the dead is by far one of the most unique and interesting series's, it makes me wonder how Kimberly Loth came up with the storyline for it. If you like creepy circuses with gruesome deaths, then this series is one you do not want to miss out on. The world is beautifully written, the characters are all interesting and each one brings something different to the story. The storyline is so good that once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down. Be prepared to have your world turned upside down, and your emotions torn to shreds.

Narrator makes this book series

This continues to be a fast paced story with so many twists that completely throw you! It’s definitely a book where the MC Callie takes two steps forward then more often then not three steps right backwards again. There’s a lot of secrets, betrayal, surprises as well as loss in this book. I actually think Callie has started to mature in this book and I’m more starting to like her more with time.

Narrator as always has done an amazing job with this series. I wish I’d waited for the last book on audible instead of not being able to wait and reading it on kindle as she adds so much to the story!

Edge of my seat!!

In the third installment we truly see that Samuel is gone and Callie is trying to learn the ropes. She’s trying to figure out who can be trusted and she’s starting to question everyone’s motives. It’s nice to see a teenager behave like a adult. At times I do question her moves but that’s seldom. This book was full of plot twists that I didn’t see coming till the very end and I’m still shook! I enjoyed this book much more and it was a fast pace read for me too. The narrator, Sarah Puckett does a fabulous job bringing the characters to life. The different voices she’s uses is easy to follow and I can tell who is speaking which is a plus.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat

This series has been amazing. While I sometimes have to suspend disbelief regarding a 16 year old having the maturity to handle these issues sometimes, overall the story is great. I can’t wait to hear what happens next.

better with this book. Callie rids the island of Samuel only to find he wasn't the one who was truly in charge.

Puppet or Puppetmaster?

"All the people I love end up dead." This seems to be the mantra for Callie as her story continues to unfold in this wonderful series! What's not to love when you have a Circus where someone is killed every month, zombies inhabit the swamps along with the alligators and snakes, and ghosts come back to life every time the Circus opens?

Callie has managed to rid the island of Samuel and has taken his place, but she really doesn't have a clue what that means. There doesn't seem to be anyone who can help her figure out how to control the ghosts, zombies and other creatures that threaten her and the rest of the islanders. "Loneliness might be worse than death."

Without giving away too much of the plot, Ms. Loth has managed once again to rip out her reader's hearts and throw them against the wall in this book. Be prepared to have a couple of good cries as you read this one! And, be prepared for some unexpected twists in this one as well. Ms. Loth really caught me off guard this time!

The narrator, Sarah Puckett, does a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of this book. Even though I had previously read the ebook version, the Audible version is even better due to her performance.

I can't wait to see what happens next since this book ends on a huge cliffhanger!

Callie in charge

If a book/series could receive more than five stars then this would be the one. It is not a standalone and the books must be listened to in order.
As the saying goes, keep your friends close and your enemies closer but who is the true enemy in this story? Callie is trying to learn everything she can about her new position but things are not as they seem. In some ways it is like taking two steps forward and three steps back. When a major complication arrives to the island, it forces Callie to go into protection mode - but will it be enough? Kimberly Loth has designed a world as flawless as her writing style that will fascinate readers. There is so much going on in this storyline that at times it feels like whiplash. There are secrets, betrayals, and twists and turns to make you go OMG. You have to hear it to believe it. Do not wait and one click this book! I highly recommend! I volunteered to listen to a copy of this audiobook.

Thrilling, jaw dropping 3rd book in the series

This 3rd book in the series continues on from the dramatic ending of book two, and what a ride this story is. Callie has become the Obeah Woman, but things were not as she thought, and when events become more complicated, she doesn’t know who she can trust or where to turn. Callie has to find who the puppet master is and fight to protect those she cares for, and for the lives and freedom of everyone. The narration fit the story nicely, giving the characters individual voices and showing the emotions and tension well. This is a thrilling story that has your heart breaking for what Callie has to endure. There are plenty of exciting twists, action, magic, secrets, betrayal, surprises and loss in this story, as well as some long-awaited romance. It is a well written, fast paced enthralling story with a jaw dropping cliff hanger at the end. I can not wait for book 4
