When you’re the Ringmaster’s daughter, things are never straightforward…
Thanks to a centuries-old pact with an ancient goddess, everyone in the Jolly Carnival is blessed with enhanced abilities. For Rilla Jolly, the Ringmaster’s daughter, it means she sees the invisible patterns in everyday life and can put everything together as it should be.
When her father is killed in a freak accident, Rilla is determined to fight to keep the Jolly Carnival together and continue his legacy. But it’s going to be an uphill battle—the carnival folk are already on edge because of the sabotage that’s been plaguing them, weakening their magic and causing cracks to appear in their usually polished performances. Even Rilla's usually crystal clear vision is blurry.
To make matters worse, a handsome stranger appears, challenging Rilla’s right to be the next Ringmaster, and making the Carnival folk doubt her ability to lead. Everyone she thought she could trust starts siding with an outsider they don’t even know.
To save her beloved Carnival, Rilla must do everything she can to find the saboteur. But if she takes her eyes off the battle for Ringmaster—even for a second—she risks losing everything she’s trained for her entire life.
Does Rilla have what it takes to save the Carnival, and keep her position as the RINGMASTER?
