This was one of those books I picked up because I was avoiding housework. To be honest, about a quarter of the way in, I couldn’t figure out where it was going so I read the end and then the middle.
It was written in that gripping pre-teen style, with lots of whimsical words and repeated phrases. One thing that stuck out to me the most was the similarity between the ‘Ring Leader’ and Dr. Who, actually, even the ‘big top’ that they fly in seems an awful lot like a Tardis There was also a deep This was one of those books I picked up because I was avoiding housework. There was also a deep undertone of something religious not unlike Dr.
Whowith the mention of two cosmic-esque powers creating the mundane and the non-mundane and then dying out while fighting each other, the interesting incorporation of ‘Mrs.
Three’–a non-physical being who is ‘three’ in ‘one’ who no one likes that much ahem, trinity? Albeit, if you like a fantasy novel that whisks you all over the universe, incorporates some very whimsical themes e. As it is, this one was not my cup of tea.
Apr 18, Hylary Locsin rated it really liked it. Originally posted on my blog: Check it out for more reviews! As part of a school fieldtrip, Trix and the other stuck-up Bleeker girls go to see the Circus Galacticus: While exploring the tent, and attempting to avoid Primwell, Trix discovers the truth about the circus: Trix meets the charismatic and charming Ringmaster who invites her to join the rest of the troupe, leaving her humdrum life on Earth forever.
A dangerous presence in the universe is after her, and she must determine why before it is too late. The beginning of the novel introduces a premise that is somewhat common: After the first two chapters, however, the story goes in a very unique direction.
The author does an excellent job of world building: Although a sequel has yet to be announced, Fagan definitely leaves the story open to at least one more novel. Hopefully Circus Galacticus is the first in a series, as it holds the potential of being something very unique and enjoyable for tween, teen and adult readers alike. Circus Galacticus is well-written and truly very easy to enjoy. Deva Fagan does a great job with adding the right amount of humor to the story while still managing to portray the more serious aspects of what Trix is going through below surface level.
I was intrigued from almost the first chapter, and wish that I had read this novel sooner, as I ended up really liking it. I hope that the author decides to write a sequel.

To view it, click here. Galacticks Galacticus by Deva Fagan was a cute, middle grade read. It corcus about an orphaned girl named Trix living at a boarding school of sorts and wasn’t anything special.
Then we learn that her deceased parents left her a weird space rock, and someone is after it. When a being in a breathing mask and sunglasses appears in her room one night and she fends him off, Trix wakes up the next morning, her hair suddenly having gone pink. She thinks ckrcus may be able to find answers at the Circus Galacticus Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan was a cute, middle grade read. Yalacticus thinks she may be able to find answers at the Circus Galacticus which is in town and Trix was the only one to see secret writing galaticus the poster.
She falls through a mirror and her world gets turned upside down, and Trix realizes that maybe she is better than she believed galacticsu to be. I enjoyed reading this book, but it didn’t hold anything special for me personally. I liked the idea of the Circus hopping from galaxy to galaxy to perform, and that there was someone who was constantly after Trix over what seemed like nothing.
I really wanted to know more about the Mandate and how they made it so that each race of alien or being corcus looked the same and why.
I wanted to know more of the politics of the story and the rivalry between the Mandate and the Tinkers. I understand that it’s a middle grade book and the readers this story is geared towards probably wouldn’t pick those things out, but as an adult reading it, it’s what I wanted to know.
I also wanted to know more about the circus itself, as it seemed like it had a lot more hidden things that were eluded to but never explained. I also wanted to know more about the Ringmaster and his role in everything, because I felt like the loose explanation that the only thing keeping him alive was his connection to the Circus.
It would have been interesting to see more into his life. I also wanted to know more about Trix’s mother being part of the Mandate before she took off to Earth and met Trix’s father. It would have been more satisfying to me if the ending had been Trix stuck with the Mandate like she was being held prisoner by her own descendants. I felt like a lot happened in the end of the story that was rushed and could have been the part of a second book.
I galacticu be interested to see if there was going to be more to this world, although I’m not sure it would be something I would seek out to continue. It is a book I would consider keeping for my own children some day to read and enjoy.
