What dark magic powers Rinka Tinka’s flying circus?
After saving the faeries of Skemantis, magician’s apprentice Felix Carmer III and faerie princess Grit are eager to leave the big city behind and see more of the world. Their travels soon bring them to the ticket counter of the mysterious Rinka Tinka’s Roving Wonder Show. The flying circus delights and amazes the crowds, but Carmer and Grit quickly discover that there’s more to the show’s magic than meets the eye—and a string of local airship accidents might be the key to unlocking its dangerous secrets.

Praise For…

“Sarah Jean Horwitz ups the quotient of magic, mystery, humor, and heart in this riveting sequel to the well-loved series debut.”
“Even richer in detail and full of undersea and high-flying adventure and danger. Grit and Carmer are recognizable from the previous story, but they continue to grow as they make hard decisions and learn more about the world . . . a well-plotted, magical adventure.”
—School Library Journal
“A rollicking fantasy ride. Grit, Carmer, and Bell are appealing characters who almost meet their match in the evil counterparts here; but, in the end, justice prevails. Fans of The Wingsnatchers will not be disappointed.”
—VOYA Magazine
“I would recommend this book if you like a good mysterious fairytale adventure.”
