The Big Top is the first of three special edition episodes from Dead Things Season Three, also known as Deranged Angels and Cannibal Hearts. Episode One is the first third of the full-length book and is for readers who prefer to read shorter novels.
Bruised, battered, and still reeling from their losses, the pack focuses on trying to salvage what’s left of their forces. Ember has boldly stated that they need to go on the offensive, but with many of their alliances dead or defecting, the pack thinks she’s insane.
She’s not the only one whose mental health is in question.
Donovan is quietly coming unglued and putting all his focus on his fragile hybrid girlfriend. Mace, too, is starting to question his sanity when Silas makes an offer he never saw coming and a prediction that he fears just might be true.
Tristin is heartbroken and humiliated following Quinn’s departure and finds solace in the arms of a questionable companion. Kai, on the other hand, is firmly in denial about the loss of his friend and chooses to focus instead on his new role ...as a father.
Quinn is rapidly spiraling into darkness and regretting his decision to leave with Silas when he’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime from an unlikely source. But can a soulless Quinn win a strategic battle with a master of games without becoming caught in his own trap? Can Ember and the others rally and win their own battle when they aren’t even sure what the game is?
