Goodreads synopsis-

In a world of magical visions and pyrokinesis, Mara just wants to have a normal life. But is that possible?

Mara has become used to the extraordinary. Roaming from place to place with Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Carnival, she longs for an ordinary life where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future.

She gets her chance when the struggling sideshow sets up camp in the small town of Caudry and she meets a gorgeous local guy named Gabe. But before long, Mara realizes there’s a dark presence lurking in the town that’s threatening the lives of her friends. She has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she had in order to save everyone she cares about—and change the future forever.

Review-

Roll Up, Roll Up to Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Sideshow where everything is not what it seems. Freeks follows protagonist Mara, who has always longed for a normal life. But instead, travels with her mother as she performs in this marvellous show. It wouldn’t be too bad if she was actually in the show, but with no special talent. She is left to do the dirty work.

The tension and suspense in Freeks is fantastic. Because this world is rich of necromancy, magical visions, and pyrokinesis, the reader has now idea what is going to happen next. And with people disappearing and weird attacks, no one in the traveling show is safe. It was strange the outcome of the attacks, but it seemed to work in a weird way.

Verdict:

This is the first box I’ve received from Bookling’s Crate for me, book boxes are always difficult because you can hunt around for really cheap book prices online. But the value of this box is definitely the curation. I really enjoy adult fiction but don’t always have the time to scour for gems in each genre. This box reminds me of a friend of mine who always give me perfect book recommendations. This book was I haven’t heard of yet but I enjoyed both enough to check out the author’s other works! And the bookish items hit on some of my favorite fandoms. This box is a total hit for me!
