This is a crossover with the author’s companion series, Moonstone Bay, which I haven’t yet read. This is the circus’ first trip to the bay, and it is an action-packed visit. The circus has to combine forces with the local paranormals to save the island’s residents from an ancient demon determined to destroy it all. Raven’s fear is palpable in this one, which gave the series a deep and dark edge that I quite enjoyed!

About Amanda M. Lee

When I was a kid, I was torn between whether or not I was going to grow up and be the Incredible Hulk or Wonder Woman. I flirted with being a Jedi Knight for awhile, but I wasn’t up for the intense travel associated with the gig. In my teens, I settled on being a writer — although I had no idea the effort that would entail.
Not only am I a writer now, but I’m a writer in several different mediums. I’m a longtime newspaper reporter, an avid reader and a voracious science fiction fanatic.
