4 stars
I received an arc for an honest review.

The Peculiar Lives of Circus Freaks follows the Kipling circus and some of the “freaks” in the show. We meet shifters, mermaids, magicians and more. There are 8 different stories from some amazing authors.

Overall, I liked the stories. However, for me the problem was I don’t like what I call unfinished stories. I hope the authors decide to give us full books for these characters. I think they have the potential to be amazing books. I really like the take on the circus freaks. It was interesting.

I give this book 4 stars. I would recommend it if you are ok with not getting the full story for these characters. Think of it as a taste of what they could become.

I received an arc for an honest review.

I read Peculiar Lives of Circus Freaks.  I liked it overall.  It had a lot of paranormal in the stories.  Normally I don’t read a lot of small stories but however I do love reading about shifters and magic.

It was written by several different authors and to say I would love some of the stories to keep going would be accurate.  The authors did a good job in putting together the stories.

I liked the stories just didn’t want them to end.
