    " I found this book in the independent reader section at Borders during its closeout, but it has moments of being a bit risque, so I wouldn't recommend it to young ones. I really enjoyed the cast of characters. The author wanted to show people with differences in a positive light and does a great job. "

    " The setting and characters in this story were very well done. Abel was amazing and the dog boy was too. She did a very good job of representing the sideshow people as people. The only thing I didn't like was the whole dream Egyptian princess. It didn't fit in with the story line for me and I love ancient Egypt. It was a good idea though it just did not work. "

    " I've loved Klause since I read The Silver Kiss, and even more since Blood and Chocolate, which I used as extensive background for my very favorite Gangrel, Ari Lang. This was an interesting take on freak shows of the early 1900s, and also provided a good basis for Carnivale, which Mark and I are watching now. Slightly far-fetched, but written with the same adroitness as her other offerings. "

However, he soon finds out he's been followed by Apollo, a ten-year-old 'dog boy' who was another resident of Faeryland. Abel attempts to send Apollo home, but on the way the two keep getting drawn into a series of adventures, including investigating the kidnapping of a young boy by a cruel sideshow owner. "

    " It's a very intresting take on circus people in the early days of touring. It's pretty good and a fast read. "

    " I really enjoyed this book but the ending left me unsatisafied. i can't put my finger on why, it just did. I loved reading about the rough world and gave me a sense of pride in my own home. "

    " this was a long book to read. It had an interesting concept but seemed to be pushing to a goal. I felt like the author had an idea and just wanted to get to it at first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karissa | 1/20/2014

    " Actually, it's a book on CD and it's been a blast to listen to. The narrator is very good and the story is chilling, compelling and sometimes really funny. I imagine reading it would be fun, but listening to it makes it come to life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Izzee Clady | 1/12/2014

    " Ehh...this one felt rushed and silly. Too much sexuality, although I liked the concept of a normal boy growing up and feeling like a freak because everyone he knows is...a freak. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gohomelefty | 12/14/2013

    " When I read this I guess I thought they'd be cool freaks, but no. They're more like cheesy sideshow freaks from the 50s. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 12/3/2013

    " This was a school book club read. The story is ok, but I don't like the ending or the need for the supernatural in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eduardo Amezquita | 11/30/2013

    " Its is a good book about freaks and a carnival show also about a kid in love. "

    " Still trying to figure out what I think about this one. I am pretty sure that the author is my secret twin, though. "

    " NOT SO PLEASED WITH THIS. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 4/12/2013

    " I finished it. It had it's moments, but if I hadn't been able to finish it for some reason it wouldn't have bothered me. In fact, at one point, I couldn't remember if I had read the end or not...I hadn't. "

    " easy read, really picks up once you get a few chapters deep. "

    " A good, quick, romantic read. And handles the subject matter well. "
