Romantic fantasy tale - unusual but well worth it

The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern

This romantic fantasy tale is well worth a look, reminding me a bit of "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" in that it deals with magic in a historical era. A challenge is set between two users of magic and this results in the creation of the Night Circus and the impact this has on the general public and a few selected characters who have helped ot create and run the Circus. Where does reality begin and end? Or is it all a fantasy?

Well-written with plenty of character development, it is quite engaging and well worth a read.
