The Immortal Circus (Cirque des Immortels #1)
Release date: December 4, 2012 (serial); January 29, 2013 (print)
Pages: 224
Publisher: 47North
Formats: Paperback, audio, eBook
Murdered contortionists aren't exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can't quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded—especially not when she realizes the devilishly attractive ringleader, Mab, is the Faerie Queen of legend—and that she and the rest of the troupe are locked in an age-old rivalry between the otherworldly Courts.

Aided by her friends Kingston—a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart—and his smart-ass assistant, Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past—and future—than she bargained for.

The show's just beginning. Step right up...

The Immortal Circus Act Two (Cirque des Immortels #2)
Release date: June 11, 2013 (serial); August 20, 2013 (print)
Pages: 222
Publisher: 47North

Formats: Paperback, audio, eBook
Vivienne is almost content with her new life in the Cirque des Immortels. She has moved up from selling cotton candy to telling fortunes, she has a gorgeous, magical boyfriend, Kingston…and no one has been murdered since the clash between the otherworldly Courts. Her life under the faerie big top would be perfect, in fact, if not for the nightmares and visions that compel her to seek and confront her half-remembered past. But for Viv, not knowing her past may well be a blessing. There's a reason she ran away. But can she truly escape herself?.

The second act of the fantastically evocative Cirque des Immortels series, The Immortal Circus: Act Two draws readers further into a world thats at once wonderful, seductive…and deadly.

Step right up…

Now on to the playlist!

Hi Jaime!
Thanks for hosting me. I hear you have a love for playlists, so I thought it would be a great time to talk about music and its influence on the books. And give you a little teaser.

The playlist for Immortal Circus has always been my dirty little not-so-secret: usually pop mixed with some more hardcore tracks. The chapter titles in every book are song titles, and I honestly won't let myself write the chapter until I have the title picked out. It's kind of strange, but I often feel like the title casts the tone for the rest of the chapter, and I feel the titles as a whole give a rough summary of the book's arc. There were many song titles I just knew I had to use in the series since book one, and they definitely changed the direction of the story in subtle ways. Others just fit so perfectly with the narrative that I couldn't not use them.
So, without giving too much away, here's the full chapter title list. I'd love to hear what you think it entails for our characters. :)


1: Dark Paradise – Lana Del Rey
2: Lace and Leather – Britney Spears
3: Crimes of Passion – Madonna

About A.R. Kahler
Alex is many things, but first and foremost, hes a Sagittarius.

Born in Iowa and educated across the States, hes taught circus in Amsterdam and Madrid, gotten madly lost in the Scottish wilderness, received his Masters in Creative Writing from Glasgow University, and drummed with Norse shamans. Sometimes he also walks about on stilts. Or sews. Or hammers tiny pieces of metal into pretty shapes.

When hes not writing or climbing in the rafters, hes probably drinking coffee. And seeing as he currently resides in Seattle, theres coffee aplenty.

He is represented by Laurie McLean of Foreword Literary.
