Description

When Mary brings home a deck of tarot cards, the dull life she and her husband, Darrin, have lived changes. Without realizing, they become members of the strange society, leaving behind their daily rituals, and join the ranks of World Circus with carnivorous Clowns, and provocative entertainers. Though Mary is completely comfortable being a performer under the Big Top, Darrin wants out of the disturbing world. After a terrorizing encounter, resulting in death, they learn the bizarre rules of the land, and discover that the denizens of the sinister World Circus want more than to entertain them.

Mary and Darrin make a deal with the inhabitants of World Circus to save their lives. Returning to her life outside World Circus, Mary scours the streets to find replacements for the souls removed from the dark world she’d escaped, all the while wishing she could return to serenity she found in Star’s light as she performed for the Ladies and Gentlemen. Once Darrin is free of the Circus, they learn that not everything is as the inhabitants would like them to believe. After much consideration, they decide there is only one thing they can do.

Charles W. Jones grew up in a town of 500 people–Shoshoni, WY. It’s the Center of the Universe, or so he thought growing up since it is in the exact center of the state. There were quite a few “characters” in his hometown, and it was one of those places that everyone knows your business. The thing that stuck with him the most was, how dark it was at night. Charles was a jumpy kid at night. Anything that moved in the dark, any sound made his heart pound in his chest. Thunder had the same effect. His first book, The Second Plain, was extremely influenced by his hometown. Most of it is actually set there. Darkness is a deep influence for him and has Shoshoni to thank for it.
