These days, she’s traveling in some unusual circles…
Before her father can kick her out of the house, Caroline runs away to join the circus. She’s far from the oddity or performer that Arcanium is known for, but the fortune teller grants her wish to become a part of his circus and assigns her to run the carousel.
It’s repetitive work and the quarters are cramped, but it’s the perfect job while Caroline figures out what the hell she’s going to do with her life.
Then some of the creepy carousel mounts—the ones that look like tormented human men—start coming to life at night. At first she thinks they’re just dreams, but she quickly discovers that Arcanium is no ordinary circus.
Caroline must not only come to grips with the shady motivations and affections of her new colleagues, but also with the driven desire inside her for Riley and Colm—the men bound to the carousel to atone for their sins, who beg her to save them.
