Hoshiko and Ben have been on the run since they burned Silvio Sabatini's circus down to the ground at the explosive finale of Show Stopper. But Ben's mother will stop at nothing to track him down and get her revenge: backing him into a corner where he is forced to sacrifice himself to save Hoshiko. The deadliest show on earth has been resurrected and if Ben thought he'd seen into its dark corners as an outsider, the true extent of the horrors that lurk beneath the Big Top are about to be revealed as he becomes the circus's new star attraction... Book features : The pace, action and danger of The Hunger Games. The starcrossed romance of Noughts and Crosses—this book packs some powerful political punches which never compromise the moving, brave and dramatic story. The mesmerising, heart-in-mouth action set pieces in the circus are breathtakingly tense.
