Kids are vanishing in Victorian London. Only Toby knows why.
Can he save the city before falling victim himself?
After 12-year-old Toby Carter escapes a brutal workhouse at Christmas, he can't believe his good fortune. Adopted by a band of travelling performers called The Winter Freak Show who put on spellbinding shows each night, he finally believes he's found the family he always wanted. Then, everything falls apart.
Children are disappearing throughout the city. Pretty soon, all evidence points to those Toby trusted the most, and he finds himself caught up in a conspiracy far more sinister than he ever imagined. Defenseless and on the run, he’s confronted with two options: uncover the kidnapper before another child falls victim, or stand by and watch as the shadowy criminal becomes unstoppable.
The fate of Christmas rests in the balance.
The Winter Freak Show is the first book in Daniel Parsons’s spellbinding Twisted Christmas Trilogy. If you like vivid magic, fantastic creatures, and a race against time, then you’ll love this thrilling fantasy adventure.

An awesome story to read or listen to
I listened to this audiobook version of the story (which I've also read) and it really brought it to life. The narrator, Wink Taylor, really weaves magic of his own as he tells the tale, giving each character unique voices and building tension in all the right places to make this truly addictive listening. An awesome story to read or listen to for anyone from older children upwards.
