Shadowplay (Pantomime #2) - Paul's Pre-Reading

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Shadowplay (Pantomime #1)
Author: Laura Lam
Year Published: 2014

Ashley's Pantomime (#1) PRE-READING

Synopsis: The circus lies behind Micah Grey in dust and ashes.

He and the white clown, Drystan, take refuge with the once-great magician, Jasper Maske. When Maske agrees to teach them his trade, his embittered rival challenges them to a duel which could decide all of their fates. People also hunt both Micah and the person he was before the circus—the runaway daughter of a noble family. And Micah discovers there is magic and power in the world, far beyond the card tricks and illusions he's perfecting...

A tale of phantom wings, a clockwork hand, and the delicate unfurling of new love, Shadowplay continues Micah Grey’s extraordinary journey.

Why?: Pantomime was so good! I loved the mystery of it. The world was so unique and we didn't even learn that much about it. I want to know all the secrets! Micah is such an interesting character, too. And now we're going to meet a magician?

Expectations: I'm expecting more mystery and more awesome secrets to unravel. I want to find out more about the history of this world, the Alders, and the Chimaera. I'm sure we will discover why Drystan calls himself a monster.

Judging a book by its cover: I like that the cover has the same feel as Pantomime's. It's eerie and mysterious. I like the use of the dragonfly again. I'm interested to see who this character is with her moon tattoo on her forehead.
