Story Summary

There are seven Fabulous Flying Kubatovs, until Lenka gets leukemia and she and her parents have to leave the act.. But Lenka is in remission now. Feeling a burden to her parents and desperately missing flying, she runs away to join a dilapidated, eastern European circus, Cirque des Chauve Souris. If they hire her, Lenka promises to modernize them and increase attendance. But Lenka soon learns a dark secret lurks beneath the Big Top - they are a circus of vampires and they can offer her something far more precious than modernization - eternal life and the ability to fly again.
