Review of Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan

Trix can deal with being an orphan charity case at a snotty boarding school. She can hold her own when everyone else tells her not to dream big dreams. She can even fight back against the mysterious stranger in a silver mask who tries to steal the meteorite her parents trusted her to protect.
    But her life is about to change forever. The Circus Galacticus has come to town, bringing acts to amaze, delight, and terrify. And now the dazzling but enigmatic young Ringmaster has offered Trix the chance to be a part of it.

About Circus Galacticus

 Beatrix is a very willful character and loyal to her friends. Things around start to happen and most of the time those around never believe her. The one person who does is Ringmaster a young man she meets at a newly arrived circus in her town. Ringmaster though has his own problems and can't keep Beatrix safe all the time. As you read Beatrix shows herself to want to remain in the Circus because to her it's personal but while she does a scary masked stranger pursues her telling her she doesn't belong to Circus Galacticus but his kind. There are moments of doubt for Beatrix but as readers we can only hope she finds the truth which we do. Caught by some surprise by who Beatrix is and Beatrix's trip around on the Circus it becomes really colorful and descriptive. Would've wanted to learn more about Ringmaster, he seems to have more to him. Hopefully this is only the first book in a series. There's still more story to work with. Really out of this world, literally, fun and with pins and needles danger only gets more enjoyable.

If you're into space adventures and mystery.There is a very big science fiction touch to Circus Galacticus. Fantasy fans will love this too because of its huge originality appeal.
