The Midnight Carnivale

Runaways Rosie and Oliver are in for a surprise when they stumble across The Midnight Carnival, a traveling circus that performs only once the sun has set.

When charismatic proprietor Mr.

White promises them fame, fortune and best of all -- immortality, will they accept? When the time comes, will they be willing to pay the price no matter how steep, or will they forfeit -- with their lives.

Set in the 1930s during the midst of the Great Depression, The Midnight Carnivale blends fantasy, horror and a bit of history to create a spellbinding tale of ancient magic, unwavering devotion, and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.

I pleaded with my sister not to drag me along to the circus.

Dad didn't understand why the circus' Ferris Wheel made me scared but we didn't have to go again.

At the top of the Ferris Wheel I had seen how the circus had replaced the entire town, the forest beyond and even the mountains.

Also foul language, and self harm.

Also the story is set in our time, but also has an 1800 themed.

There is electronics.

But no cars or cell phones.

Thanks to the crazy old man's warning, I was on alert for the supernatural at the traveling circus.

As I lay dying of various illnesses I realized he meant the safety violations in the food trucks.
