So, not long ago I posted a review of Circus Tarot and said how I would just HAVE to read the sequel. Well I did 🙂
So, the second book in the trilogy is Page of Buckets
Blurb: More Clown mayhem than in the cult movie classic Killer Klowns From Outer Space, Page of Buckets, the second instalment of the Circus Tarot Trilogy, Charles W. Jones takes us back to World Circus. More than six years have passed, and unknown to Mary and Darrin, the Circus Tarot has rebuilt itself, tempting their young daughter, Susie, with the delights inside the cards. They return to World Circus to rescue Susie from the denizens of World Circus to find she is content being a Clown with no desire to leave the enchanting land.
My thoughts: Set six years after the first book the lives of Mary and Darrin have returned to normal and the horrors of World Circus have become a thing of the past. They have a daughter and life couldn’t be better. However when their daughter, Susie, starts to show an interest in going to the circus her parents can’t help but be fearful. Surely it’s just a normal childhood interest though rather than anything more sinister? Of course not!
Once again Mary and Darrin must venture into the terrifying world, this time to rescue their daughter. The only problem is Susie is having a wonderful time and “clown fun” is harmless… isn’t it?
While this maybe didn’t have the same unexpected impact of the first book I still really enjoyed it and another trip into a crazy, scary world of the characters from Circus Tarot.
And yes… I am looking forward to reading the next one!
