A Jigsaw of Fire and Stars

Publisher: Head of Zeus

Review

Sante was cast adrift as a baby, the sole survivor of a terrible shipwreck – her only companion a golden eagle named Priss.

Since then, she has found a family with Mama Rose and her circus. But now she is 14, and history has come back to haunt her – literally, as the ghosts of those drowned in the shipwreck demand justice. It turns out that the wreck was planned, and Sante is caught up in a dangerous adventure, where she must use all her circus skills to survive.

This book takes matters as grave as child prostitution, as fantastic as ghosts, and as romantically escapist as circus life, and braids them into a unique and convincing story. The setting is vividly described, reflecting the real multiculturalism of the Mediterranean.
