 Only those who possess wild eyes, an impulsive heart, and a wandering spirit hunt for the Theater of Secrets—and once they witness the darkest of magic, they don’t return.

It promises to change your life forever—but is the mysterious Theater of Secrets legend or something more? Tasked to answer that very question, Daisy Darling sets out to uncover the truth and is thrown headlong into a life where inexplicably strange and dark things happen nightly. A life of deception and uncertainty. A life in the spotlight as the theater’s ringleader.

As Daisy assumes her new role, she not only discovers a surprising connection between herself and the previous ringleader, but also the haunting truth behind the theater’s limitless power. Determined to expose the theater and foil its wicked plan, Daisy must first embrace her heritage before she can defeat the dark forces at play.

(Strange Luck, #2)

The Nightmare Birds (Strange Luck #2)Head back to Sea Salt and back into the magical and most unusual world of Daisy Darling, the proprietor of the family curiosity shop where anything can cross its threshold and strange things will happen when they do.

The Theater of Secrets, long thought a dark legend by many, but known as a frightening reality to those who truly know its powers, now becomes a quest for Daisy as she is tasked with finding the truth. It is said that only the invited may find it and once they enter, they cannot go back. What Daisy didn’t know was that regardless, this mystery would forever change her life and her future, and not always in a good way.

She discovers she has been lured to this dark and dangerous place, that she must assume the mantle of leadership, as her right, but why? How could this be her legacy? What evil is practiced from within these walls? Dark magic draws her in like a moth to a flame, but escape seems unlikely even as her world back in Sea Salt comes crashing down with heartbreaking precision. What is driving her toward such blackness? Why can’t she escape? So many secrets to uncover, one step at a time. Meanwhile, she must find a way to defeat and destroy this dark and evil place without destroying herself.

The Nightmare Birds by Amie Irene Winters is somewhat darker than its predecessor, but every bit as intriguing and chaotic as Daisy becomes lost in a vortex of the unknown where all the world is a stage and its populace are the pawns to toy with.

Ms. Winters has created a dark and eerie atmosphere, filled with tension as we discover that around every corner there could be danger lurking nearby. A perfect fantasy read for YA on up, let go of reality and step through the veil of possibilities to another world just beyond our comprehension. A quick read filled with a unique group of characters, a dark and twisted plot and the curiosity of Daisy that is as tenacious and a puppy chewing on your favorite shoe.

I received an ARC edition from Amie Irene Winters in exchange for my honest review.
