Nocturnal Academy students Alice, Toby and Carla have just finished their first hectic year at the exclusive school for Supernaturals, and just want to enjoy their summer holidays like normal thirteen year-olds. They decide to visit an exciting new circus that has just set up in their home town of Appleton.
However, they soon discover that this circus is not the ordinary travelling carnival they expected. The ringmaster, a mysterious character named Darmin Gallis, is actually a powerful mage who has managed to capture and hypnotise numerous shape-shifters so he can use them his bizarre acts. He coerces Toby into joining him, and Alice and Carla must turn to the Nocturnal Academy for help to rescue him from the ringmaster’s evil clutches.
They return the next day with the werewolf professor Albrecht Longenfang, but Darmin Gallis proves a far more formidable opponent than any of them expected. Alice finds herself riding a bus home alone, her memory wiped and replaced by an irrational fear of circuses.
How can Alice save Toby, Carla and Professor Longenfang when she doesn’t even remember what happened to them?
