Montserrat Triviño González produces a wonderful translation of Erin Morgenstern’s popular novel, The Night Circus. The story of Marco and Celia, two star-crossed lovers bound to play a game that can only leave one winner, is just as enchanting in Spanish as it is in English. Descriptions of Le Cirque de Rêves, where the game of magic takes place, are lyrical and rich.  It is easy to see why film rights were so quickly secured.

 

Recommended for public libraries with readers dedicated to fantasy fiction like the Twilight series
