The Harlequin Circus (The King Jester Trilogy Book 1) by V.M. Forrester
Tobias has never known anything but the silver and crimson silks of Zirkua Fantastic. Raised from birth alongside firebreathers and hawkers and tightrope walkers, now he performs at the myriad stops of the traveling circus. Setting up every evening, and never staying past the sunrise. That is the way of Zirkua Fantastic. When a newcomer arrives to join the circus, the first domino falls. There's always been a subtle undercurrent of magic in the circus, inexplicable coincidences and rituals of protection. But now, the full force of the magic has burst to the surface, and a mysterious, powerful entity has broken free from her prison, intent on burning the circus to the ground. Now the circus hangs in the balance, and if the magical bonds break, the consequences will be devastating.
