She was between 25 and 28 and was married to a juggler, but could not remember how she got there. Stronger than religious ties is their association with the barah pal, the brotherhood of twelve, an ancient collective of strolling players that includes jugglers, snake-charmers, animal handlers, puppeteers, ventriloquists, storytellers, impersonators and acrobats. Regardless of their background, members of this peripatetic brotherhood can share a cooking hearth made out of three stones whenever their wanderings bring them together.
Economic changes are breaking down what were once strong bonds between these communities. But their arts of legerdemain live on as an integral part of the social, cultural and religious fabric of India as they have for millennia. A Hindu or a Muslim holy man will vanish objects, pass skewers through his body or walk on hot coals to convince alms givers of his spiritual powers. The street magician will copy those feats or add similar ones such as being buried underground or lying on a bed of nails, for the same pecuniary ends.
He ended up using his pyrotechnic skills to bring dazzling Indian deceptions to the Western stage as Linga Singh, becoming the most famous Indian magician of the s and s. After being recruited by corrupt or incompetent impresarios for great world fairs and exhibitions of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, hundreds of jugglers, acrobats, dancers and musicians were abandoned in cities such as London, Brussels and Berlin, forcing the India Office to arrange for their repatriation.

By then, the wonderworkers of Madras, Delhi, Lucknow and Lahore were synonymous with the greatest possession of the largest empire in the world.
Accounts of ropes being thrown in the air and remaining upright without any visible support, yet strong enough for an animal or even a man to climb up; of fakirs being buried alive for months and brought back to life; and of conjurors instantaneously raising mango trees laden with fruit from the bare earth, filled the pages of newspapers and journals. Magic permeated the Vedic period, Sufis and yogis staged miracle contests to see whose jadoo was more powerful, Buddhists and Jains resorted to spells and incantations to win philosophical debates. Indian fortune-tellers were in great demand in ancient Rome.
The Tang emperors of China employed Indian alchemists who peddled secret formulas that promised longevity and sexual prowess. After watching the tricks of conjurers, the 6th-century sage, Sankara, used their principles to explain the concept of maya or illusion. During the Abbasid caliphate, the booksellers of Baghdad sold Indian conjuring manuals translated into Arabic.
In the late eighteenth century, Muscovites were startled by the appearance of a yogi who kept his arms raised above his head as a penance. I shut the door and locked it. He let go. I walked into the kitchen, took a pitcher of iced tea out of the fridge, and poured him a tall glass. The tea trembled. I ran upstairs, opened the door, and nearly collided with my son. Conlan grinned at me. Conlan started walking early, at ten months, which was typical of shapeshifter children, and now he was running at full speed. His favorite games included running away from me, hiding under various pieces of furniture, and knocking stuff off horizontal surfaces.
Bonus points if the object broke. Off on one of his expeditions. Besides early walking and some seriously disturbing climbing ability, he showed no signs of being a shapeshifter. We always knew it was a possibility, because my blood ate vampirism and Lyc-V for breakfast and asked for seconds. But I knew Curran hoped our son would be a shapeshifter.
So did Doolittle. About six months ago, Curran and I visited the Keep and left Conlan with Doolittle for about twenty minutes. When we came back, I found Conlan crying on the floor with three shapeshifters in half form growling at him, while Doolittle looked on. I might have underscored my point by holding Conlan in one hand and Sarrat sheathed in my blood in the other.

It was collectively decided that further tests were not necessary. I still took Conlan to Doolittle for his scheduled appointments and when he fell or sneezed or did any of the other baby things that made me fear for his life.
But I watched them like a hawk the whole time. I buckled my belt on, slid Sarrat into the sheath on my back, and pulled my hair back into a pony tail. Teddy Jo was pacing in our lobby like a caged tiger. I grabbed the keys to our Jeep and went out the door. You can fly overhead and lead the way. The door swung open and George appeared, her tight black curls floating around her head like a halo.
She opened her arms and took Conlan for me. He wrinkled his nose and sneezed. I put my hand over my face. My kid lunged sideways, but Curran was too fast.
His hand snapped out, and he lifted Conlan by the scruff of his neck. If we survived my father and I got to raise him, I was in for a hell of a time.

I read to get myself ready to read this big finale, one final battle to settle the score with Roland, hence I am teeny tiny disappointed that this was not what I expected.
