Introduction

An intriguing tale of love, found between two magic warriors originally pitted against each other to fight to the death. One magician utilizing the teachings of an older era of magic, the other molded in the modern lessons. The two chose to change their fate, and create a different future for themselves. One filled with mystery and entertainment, as they bring the world’s most mysterious circus to life.

Plot

The story takes its origins from the city of New York, in the year of 1873. Hector Bowen, more commonly known as Prospero the Enchanter, is reunited with his daughter. Cecilia Bowen is five years old with eyes similar to her father. She is carrying a note with her that informs Hector, of her mother’s suicide.

Hector quickly recognizes that his daughter possesses magical abilities. He contacts his former teacher Mr. AH and demands a magical duel. The conditions of the duel would be a fight to the death, in a clash between the old and new teachings of magic. Mr. AH accepts Hector’s proposal and begins a search for his own apprentice. Mr. AH finds a suitable pupil at an orphanage, Marco Alisdar, a young orphan boy. Mr. AH decides that this boy shall be the one he grooms in the ways of old magic.

At the age of 18 years, young Marco was sent to be the assistant to an eccentric man by the name of Chandresh Lefevre. Chandresh, who is working on an idea to bring a traveling night circus to life, hires Cecilia to be a magician at the circus. Unaware of the long-planned duel to the death they each have been groomed for. The two work at the circus, unknowingly preparing the stage for the greatest clash of magic, the world has yet to see.

Marco however, learns about the duel and sets up a spy to observe Cecilia. The spy is Marco’s girlfriend Isobel, who casts a harmony spell upon the circus as soon as she arrives. The spell allows for Marco and Cecilia to work in unison as they perform for the circus. The two push each other, as they continually try to outdo the other in their magical displays. From the creation of moving carousels to gardens made entirely of ice, they displayed a rich well of magical abilities. As the competition rages on, the illusionists realize that there is a powerful emotional between the two of them. They try to ignore these feelings but it’s obvious they are falling in love.

Isobel a few years later, discovers the love Marco and Cecilia share for each other, and in a fit of revenge undoes the harmony spell. Destroying the peace within in the circus which held for years. In the absence of the spell, this allows chaos to enter the circus. The very same day as the veil was removed Chandresh in a drunken state arrives at the circus and murders Herr Thiessen. Cecilia sensing the disharmony rushes to restore the harmony within the circus. This task proves to be too much for Cecilia to manage, especially with the competition going on. She resolves to end the competition by thrusting herself into fire, allowing Marco to win. It is as at that moment that Cecilia discovered a solution which will save both Marco and herself. They would be freed from the competition. But do they have the courage to take the risk?
