Della Mortika -
The Circus of Secrets

Geraldine F Martin

Book 3 in the Della Mortika Steampunk Adventures Series

Fleeing from the disastrous Library of Wonder fire, which had destroyed their previous home, the Della Morte sisters and their friend Charlie are adopted by a travelling circus which has camped in Melbourne in 1888. The friends settle in, learning new skills and meeting new people. That is, until the circus is bought by a mysterious Melbourne business man. Slowly, things start to change for Abigail, Beatrix, Zarah and Charlie. So much so that their initial feelings of safety start to dissolve. A failed abduction attempt confirms their suspicions and they now enter into an investigation of the goings-on at the circus. Someone wants the friends under his, or her, control.

Why? Who? Is it the new owner? Is it to do with their captured parents? And most importantly, will they ever see their parents again?
