Publisher's Summary

"When circus acts go above and beyond what skeptics know to be the limits of human ability, the only remaining, logical explanation is the least plausible of all - magic must be real."

This collection is packed with magic, paranormal, and deadly thrills.

Get the complete trilogy of the Amazon best-selling Vagabond Circus series! This boxed set includes Suspended, Paralyzed, and Released.

When a stranger joins the cast of Vagabond Circus - a circus that is run by Dream Travelers and features real magic - mysterious events start happening. The once orderly grounds of the circus become riddled with hidden threats. And the ringmaster realizes not only are his circus and its magic at risk, but also his very life.

Vagabond Circus caters to the skeptics. Without skeptics, it would close its doors. This is because Vagabond Circus runs for two reasons and only two reasons: first and foremost to provide the lost and lonely Dream Travelers a place to be illustrious. And secondly, to show the nonbelievers that there's still magic in the world. If they believe, then they care, and if they care, then they don't destroy. They stop the small abuse that day-by-day breaks down humanity's spirit. If Vagabond Circus makes one skeptic believe in magic, then they halt the cycle, just a little bit. They allow a little more love into this world. That's Dr. Dave Raydon's mission. And that's why this ringmaster recruits. That's why he directs. That's why he puts on a show that makes people question their beliefs. He wants the world to believe in magic once again.

    This set of stories is fantastic. Each book is more exciting than the

    amazing. The narrator, Mr. Barnes does a awesome job. He really
    makes the story come to life. Highly recommend to all.

    "Vagabond Circus"

    I hated having to turn my kindle off. It was given to me but ended up costing me. I wanted to keep listening when I needed to do something else. I ended up dropping and breaking my 7in kindle. The book was almost worth having to buy a new one.

    "Wow!!!"

    Sarah Noffke is a very talented author. Steve Barnes did a great job performing these three books. I didn't know what to expect when I started the series. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator and or publisher. Typically I listen to romance or mystery books, so this was outside my typical genre preference. I found the premise of the dream traveling to be intriguing, and loved the background of the circus. So original and enjoyable.

    Vagabond Circus Series Boxed Set
    by Sarah Noffke March 10 2017

    Book one, Suspended A tale of Grace
    Vagabond Circus Creed: Dave wanted to show the world there was true magic in the world in the hopes they would find magic with in themselves
    We meet the Owner & Ring Master Dr.David Raydon, Who gave up his Psychiatric practice at the Lucidite Institute 20 yrs ago, along with giving his belongings away, he sold his Estate to follow his dream of running a circus for possessions never brought him true happiness. That was the Beginning of the Vagabond Circus. A kind happy man. Dave had two rules that the performers must live by 1 Show respect to each other at all times. 2 No romantic relationships between performers. He had a very good reason to enforce these two simple rules even though only a select few knew what it was.
    Titus- Dave’s long time friend, adviser and Creative Director
    Fanny, a wonderful Healer and a Nanny to the younger children at the circus. A mother figure to all.
    The Stars of the circus is the Acrobats. Jack, Jasmine, Zuma, a girl who was cursed because she was born at the Vagabond Circus, a girl all fell in love with her beauty and grace. A new comer Finley, a boy shrouded in mystery. (He was there on a mission and he would not fail.) Someone from within the circus family had diabolical plans for Dr. David Raydon.
    Ian a crew hand who also could truly see the future and would fill in at Zuma’s Fortune teller booth before the show times after the act story line was changed to incorporate Finley into the act.
    The children under Fanny’s care are…
    Sunshine she could read emotions and she was the star of the fire act in the show.
    Oliver an illusionist as well as a sweet hearted boy.
    Emily was the youngest at the age of 4, she was too young to have a job under the Big top. Benjamin (Benny) was 10 yrs of age and his talent has not yet showed it’s self.
    Sebastian was also relatively new to the family, he was 11 yrs of age or so they thought.
    The Juggling triplets Haady oldest brother by a few seconds, Padmal the ill tempered sister of the three and Nabhi the youngest brother.
    We see how wonderful and close this family was sure it had minor scrimmages or personality conflicts from time to time. Dave was a nurturing loving Father to all. Many of the performers would lay down their life for Dave if needed because he had saved many from a bad life on the streets or in an orphanage. Although Dave would never allow anyone to sacrifice anything on his behalf. It was a pleasant place to live and work. The Vagabond Circus brought out the best in them all

    Book two Paralyzed…A tale of Secrets
    Secret of the Vagabond circus history had begun to seep out finding the light. Many had felt betrayed. Shouldn’t they have know what they were now hearing? Why hadn’t the big lovable man confided in them? Some had known Dr. David Raydon their whole lives. They were family and they all but one or two loved the Vagabond circus as much as Dave did.
    Tragedy struck like a thief in the night. Vagabond Circus family is deeply grieving for the loss of the heart of Vagabond Circus. Titus the second in charge is beside himself, indecision has paralyzed him. He is over whelmed in his grief. Titus knows he wants to do Dave proud in keeping his legacy alive and thriving. Titus wanted to make David proud but where to start. He spent that first night going back and viewing the events of the evening, he had to get to the truth of just what had taken place and who had carried out the dastardly deed.
    Jack, Impulsive Jack, decided he was going to seek retribution for the death of his friend. Jack had no idea what he was in for. They knew Charles Knight was behind the plot to kill one of their family members. Jack was on his way to knights compound.
    Zuma enlist the help of Findley to try and save Jack. She had hoped they could cut him off before he got to the Knight compound. Finley was Charles Knight’s first named child, his best thief and the only one who had ever escaped his compound. What Zuma saw in Finley’s mind broke her heart, how can anyone treat their children that way?
    Charles knight was a collector of manufactured dream traveler children. He is cold calculating and the children has are his servants, they have nothing not even a name till they reach a point of successful heist and other task for Mr. Knight, then as a reward they get to pick their own name. He rules with an iron fist. Those who do not meet his expectations are killed and disposed of like trash. He has a team of adult Drones that help him with the kids, they are as cold and standoffish as Mr. Knight. Charles compound is designed with traps to keep him from prying eyes and the unwanted attention.
    We meet Zuma's family, they are wonderful kind accepting and loving. As wonderful as Zuma's family is ...Jack's family is HORRID! Shallow cold and they care more about appearance then they do their gravely injured son. It is for that reason Finley and Zuma told Jacks parents & his brothers that Jack & Zuma were engaged. Finley died a little inside but he had to do it to shut Jacks family up and to turn the screw just a little more.

    Book 3Releasrd…A tale of treachery
    Charles Knight was Dr.David Raydon’s brother and his first performer 20 yrs ago. Where David brought out the good in people, Charles naturally brings out the bad and depravity in people. Charles was banned from the Vagabond Circus yrs ago. At a time when evil had destroyed Dr.Raydon’s beloved circus. Being Daivid’s brother, Charles now owned the majority share and Titus being Dr Raydon’s partner with a holding of 45% of the Circus.
    Mr. Knight had driven onto the circus grounds with big black trucks, the man himself had to be 7ft tall wiry and pale. Like he had never seen the sun. Mr Knight’s eyes were cruel and cold. Sabasten the boy Dave had taken in and who had ran away after the tragedy struck was there standing beside this hateful man along with a smaller redheaded girl named Gwen they were Knight’s enforcers and eyes, both very creepy. At the meeting he marched in two rows sad looking children all wearing black t-shirts looking down at the ground , there had to be at least 40 of them. They didn’t speak or look up. Mr.Kight forbid any of the Circus folks from speaking or interacting with “his children” in any way.
    Mr.Knight was going to change up the show. Where it was light and airy it was now spooky and heavy. There was drinking and fighting among the Vagabond Circus family, things were going on that Dave would never have allowed. Ian, the crew had had told the performers that they had to stay for the greater good. Ian was never wrong and he had a good reputation so very one listened to him. Knight would plague those who disobeyed him with horrible headaches. They had to play along for now even though everything in them told them to run. No one was happy except maybe Padmal, because she was able to talk Knight into letting them juggle with sharp ice sickles, something Dave had shot down when it was first mentioned. She hated Dave for taking her and her brothers out of the orphanage. She just knew her mother would come back for her some day, but her adoration for Mr.Kinght will be short lived. The performers all felt helpless and miserable. Finley was keeping his distance from Zuma and the others to protect them from the wrath of Knight. Knight would find who or what you loved and he would hurt or destroy them in order to control.
    There is a small core group that were planning on getting rid of Knight, Gwen & Sebastian. They just had to keep the Legacy alive of what Dr.Raydon had created they had to take the Circus back.
    Fanny had tossed a huge secret. It changed everything in the way Mr. Knightly believed to be true. It made Finley’s life even worse for a time. All hope was not lost. Even though there had been several deaths under Mr. Knights leadership.

    To find out more pick up this enchanting series and other books by Sarah Noffke. You will be memorized and amazed. This Dream Traveler world that Mrs. Noffke created is amazing and it stretches across several of her series. Each one is enchanting, well written and will transport you in time. You will love her well rounded, complex and amazing characters, and love to hate others.

    "OMG GREAT BOOK"

    book 1 Suspended
    Another great beginning it will be another great series by Sarah Noffke!! Sarah is one of those authors that make me grab a book just because of who she is. She hasn't disappointed me yet!
    I was drawn into the life of vagabond circus fast I wish I had book 2 handy to continue as I don't like to wait rather read whole set at once.
    Overall great book.
    book 2 Paralyzed
    Paralyzed takes place over days and centres around the people of the circus rather than the circus itself.
    I listened to the book in the 3 book series on audiobooks.
    Paralyzed kept me engrossed till the end in one sitting.
    The cliffhanger ending left me wanting more -- where will the Vagabond Circus go from here?
    This is the 2nd in 3 books. I suggest you purchase the set of books instead of one at a time so you never have to wait to finish the series. These books keep you flipping the pages til the end and you've lost track of time.
    I won this set of books through a draw and decided to review.
    book 3 Released
    Great finish to the trio of Vegabond series.
    In the final episode of the Vagabond Circus we lose many of the characters but also gain then lose another 3 or 4.
    This final book was the best of the three with all the activity.
    All great books must come to an end and this one did with a bang. The Rollercoaster ride that Sarah took us on was wild. The mystry behind the circus was a huge surprise to me.
    Please read these books you won't be disappointed.

    These three books were a wonder to listen to, kept me fully engaged and on the edge of my seat. The narrator, Steve Barnes, has a range of riveting voices. It was a pleasure to listen to and I can't wait to start the next series.

    "Deliciously dark"
    Which character – as performed by Steve Barnes – was your favorite?

    Steve Barnes' narration makes him my latest personal hero. Wow! Fun to listen to. Lots of distinct character voices and inspired portrayal.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed books one and two. Book three got a little tedious. If I heard the phrase 'her battle sense' once more I would scream. The meaning was to convey the character's sense of how to effectively engage in battle. It did not merit repetition over and over and over again. Especially when the character had many notable talents to brag about. It was only book three that kept me from giving all five stars.Though most of the saga is indeed dark, it is not completely dark. There is sufficient counter balance to keep the story engaging and not morbid.

    There is so much to love about this boxed set, this story, and the performance. I love that it is unabridged, it is a lot of entertainment in one package. The narrator is perfect for the story, which is complex, haunting, and full of twists and surprises.
