Book 2 of the warmly received Carmer and Grit series features the young magician and one-winged faerie princess as they investigate the dangerous secrets of a magical flying circus.

“Sarah Jean Horwitz ups the quotient of magic, mystery, humor, and heart in this riveting sequel to the well-loved series debut.”
“Even richer in detail and full of undersea and high-flying adventure and danger. Grit and Carmer are recognizable from the previous story, but they continue to grow as they make hard decisions and learn more about the world . . . a well-plotted, magical adventure.”
—School Library Journal
“A rollicking fantasy ride. Grit, Carmer, and Bell are appealing characters who almost meet their match in the evil counterparts here; but, in the end, justice prevails. Fans of The Wingsnatchers will not be disappointed.”
—VOYA Magazine
“I would recommend this book if you like a good mysterious fairytale adventure.”
