Summary from Goodreads:

In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.

As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.

The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost

The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told

The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.


Could there be a story more thrilling than this? I loved reading through this book. It had a wonderful Magical vibe that reminded me a lot of Caraval by Stephanie Garber. The Mystery and suspense kept me on my toes and the characters were wonderful. I fell in love with them right from the beginning.

The only reason I couldn't give this book a four star is the world building. I wanted more. I wanted to know what the world was like around the characters and how the people reacted to them.

Other than that, I couldn't put this book down and have already recommended it to my close reading buddy (My mom.)

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
