25289872Goodreads Synopsis

Don’t be shy and come inside! The Nightingale is waiting to take flight!

Welcome to The Nightingale Circus! Listen to the singer with an enchanting voice. Watch the knife throwers who are also prosthetic builders. Here is a telecharger on the run and a ballerina with no lungs. There is a broken pole dancer and an Asian bot. You’ll be amazed by a regular girl who becomes exquisite and frightening at the same time.

They’re better known as the famous Nightingale, the Blade Masters, the Magician, the Swan, the Firebird, the Rocket Girl, and the Golden Lady.

They are all waiting to tell you their story about how they came to the circus and why they stayed.

This is a companion short story collection to Broken People.


I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Nightingale Circus is a companion novella to Broken People. It focuses on the backgrounds of the different people who also make up the main acts of the circus.

We have Cielo, whose voice touches your soul and ends up trapping you in this web and you find yourself never wanting to part from it. Rake and Spinner are the Blade Throwers, so enhanced that they are almost indestructible. Nicholas’ power is…I need to go a bit deeper into that because I feel like there’s more to him than meets the eye.

There are a few other characters whose history we take a look at, see how they were inducted into the circus. The amount of time it took me to get to this book was way too long. Ioana Visan does it again! She’s definitely one of my Top 5 favourite authors. She never disappoints.

This was an extremely quick read and I enjoyed every page. I always manage to get swept away with Ioana Visan’s writing. I definitely want to read Broken People and be reunited with these amazing characters. I feel like even though Big Dino has a certain idea of who he admits as circus acts, it’s like he specifically finds people who won’t fit in where the outside world is concerned. People who are different…he gives them a home and keeps them safe.

I’m totally intrigued by the plot, the writing, the characters. Everything really. This is a novella of course, and while it doesn’t read like a full length novel, it certainly makes you curious enough to want to know what happens next. There was absolutely nothing I disliked about this book.
