My Thoughts:

Carnival Row is one of my more recent obsessions. I’m pretty sure that show was written specifically for me, so when I saw that audible had an audible original story that was a prequel; I knew I had to dive in ASAP. This prequel is told from Tourmaline’s perspective and it was very awesome that they got the actress to do the reading for the audio. This prequel fills in some of the gaps from the show in regards to Tourmaline and Vignette’s past. It was really interesting getting to see how they met and how their relationship grew and ultimately how it all came crashing down. It was also a great look into the early days of the war and how things got to be the way they are when we catch up with the characters at the start of the show. This one was definitely a bit heartbreaking, but if you’ve watched the show you know what you’re signing up for with this story. All in all, if you’re a fan of the show I highly recommend this story, even if you haven’t watched the show yet this could prove to be a good introduction to the world.


  1. Wow, ok I did not know about this and loved the show too! Adding to my list.

  2. Carnival Row sounds good! I'm going to have to look up the show! Thanks for sharing Teresa :)
