Series Info:A YA novel from Angry Robot's Strange Chemistry imprint
R.H. Ragona's Circus of Magic is the greatest circus of Ellada. Nestled among the glowing blue Penglass Ė remnants of a mysterious civilisation long gone Ė are wonders beyond the wildest imagination. Itís a place where anything seems possible, where if you close your eyes you can believe that the magic and knowledge of the vanished Chimeras is still there. Itís a place where anyone can hide.
Iphigenia Laurus, or Gene, the daughter of a noble family, is uncomfortable in corsets and crinoline, and prefers climbing trees to debutante balls. Micah Grey, a runaway living on the streets, joins the circus as an aerialistís apprentice and soon becomes the circusís rising star. But Gene and Micah have balancing acts of their own to perform, and a secret in their blood that could unlock the mysteries of Ellada.

Praise and Reviews:
"Who hasn't dreamed off running off and joining the circus? Laura Lam's Micah does just that, discovering a world of clowns and acrobats, con men and tricksters, corruption and incompetent doctors, and maybe more about himself. I look forward to more from this author."- Brian Katcher, author of Almost Perfect and winner of the 2011 Stonewall Children's and Young Adult Literature Award
"Micah is the most wonderful, complex, brave and contemporary teenage hero I've read, facing issues of identity and responsibility that will resound with any reader who has felt like an outsider. Pantomime is loving in itís detail but hints at so much scope to come, it feels like the set up for an epic sequel. I raced through this book, desperate to know what happens next. 'Look out behind you', Robin Hobb..."- Bryony Pearce, author of Angel's Fury.
"Welcome to a world of shills and showmen, fading tech and circus freaks, where nothing and no-one is what it appears. An absorbing, accomplished debut."- Elspeth Cooper, author of the Wild Hunt series
