NAMED TO ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY’S ‘MUST LIST’!

The year is 1922. The carnival is Pontilliar’s Spectacular Star Light Miraculum, staked out on the Texas-Louisiana border. One blazing summer night, a mysterious stranger steps onto the midway, lights a cigarette and forever changes the world around him. Tattooed snake charmer Ruby has traveled with her father’s carnival for most of her life and, jaded though she is, can’t help but be drawn to the tall man in the immaculate black suit who conveniently joins the carnival as a chicken-biting geek. Mercurial and charismatic, Daniel charms everyone he encounters, but his manipulation of Ruby turns complicated when it’s no longer clear who’s holding all the cards. Daniel is full of secrets, but he hadn’t counted on Ruby having a few of her own.

When one tragedy after another strikes the carnival—and it becomes clear that Daniel is somehow at the center of calamity—Ruby takes it upon herself to discover the mystery of the shadowy man pulling all the strings. Joined by Hayden, a roughneck-turned-mural-painter wrestling demons of his own, Ruby engages Daniel in a dangerous, eye-opening game in which nothing is as it seems and everything is at stake.

Steph Post has firmly estblished herself as one of the most original and captivating voices in contemporary fiction, and with Miraculum she has written an unforgettable novel that is part Southern Gothic, part Noir, part Magical Realism, and all Steph Post.

Praise for this book

"Steph Post's stories carry a dark pulse that keeps the perfect beat in a world where people put everything they've got on the line." - Michael Connelly

"Ruby the Snake Charmer is much like the author; keen-eyed, smart and tattooed. Miraculum is a vividly detailed traveling circus, its midway pulsing with a bizarre and alluring cast of clowns, hustlers, gamblers, freaks and cootch dancers. The Man in the Black Suit is as smooth and charming as Fred Astaire but far more dangerous than any viper, his venom threatening Ruby’s entire world. Steph Post’s writing is the Big Top. Buy a ticket. Seats are going fast." - Joe Ide

"Steph Post's Miraculum grabs hold of you from the very first page and refuses to let go until the very end. The marvels, as Daniel himself declares, just keep coming." - Aaron Mahnke
