Knoxville author pens action-packed world’s end tale in hardback novel

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Author Antony Mauro mystifies readers in the nationwide hardback release of his adventure-filled book of fiction, “Circus of Fire.”

In “Circus of Fire,” Stephen is a regular guy who has lived a hard life and has gone on to make something out of his life. He has survived most of the challenges he faced in life, but the hardest thing he has ever done was surviving the end of the world. The end of the world didn’t always happen the way that everyone thought it would be. There was no fire and brimstone, but there was only the awakening of creatures that people had all but forgotten about.

With that awakening came the opening of a site that the world wondered about — The Library of Alexandria came back to light. But with its opening, there also came the end that was once talked about in all major religions. The only question that plagues Stephen now is if the choices between right and wrong are really right and wrong.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
