Publisher's Summary

When Delilah Marlow visits a famous traveling carnival, Metzger's Menagerie, she is an ordinary woman in a not-quite-ordinary world. But under the macabre circus black-top, she discovers a fierce, sharp-clawed creature lurking just beneath her human veneer. Captured and put on exhibition, Delilah is stripped of her worldly possessions, including her own name, as she's forced to "perform" in town after town. But there is breathtaking beauty behind the seamy and grotesque reality of the carnival.
Gallagher, her handler, is as kind as he is cryptic and strong. The other "attractions" - mermaids, minotaurs, gryphons, and kelpies - are strange, yes, but they share a bond forged by the brutal realities of captivity. And as Delilah struggles for her freedom, and for her fellow menagerie, she'll discover a strength and a purpose she never knew existed.

Good start to a new series

What did you like most about Menagerie?

The writing was good and made me care about the characters


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

How would the world be if mystical creatures existed? Would we discriminate against them and treat them as less than human? What is it that makes us human? Is it our appearance or is it how we treat people? These are the main themes explored in this new paranormal book.


What about Gabra Zackman’s performance did you like?

Pleasant voices are essential to bring a book to life. Garbra's narration was enjoyable.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really but I like to space books out.
