In a society ruled by art, culture, and all things beautiful, the world's first intergalactic circus is born. 

Neon Skies is a place of fantastical wonderment, where the performers walk on air and dance with fire. Where colorful beasts can be found darting across the dazzling sky. And where people go to live out their wildest dreams. But for Alivia Lyrica, it's nothing more than a means of escape. 

Once one of the world's most beloved circus performers, Alivia fell from grace after a freak accident caused her to use a highly controversial medical procedure to save herself from death. Now, after receiving an invitation to perform in Neon Skies' tenth year anniversary celebration, all she has left is the hope that traveling to space will allow her leave the past behind on Earth. That is, until a string of gruesome murders forces her to forget everything she's ever known, or risk succumbing to her secret demons once and for all....

                              'one eyebrow raised higher than the other'
                              unnecessary to state that the eyebrow was higher when it is raised

                              'her black gaze'
                              sounds odd
                              do you mean dark gaze?
                              If it's about her eye colour is black, it sounds odd.
                              If she had blue eyes for instance, her 'blue gaze' sounds weird

Nice first chapter, just enough information to peek the curiosity.

                              For me I think I would have loved to see the shuttle specified as "space shuttle" otherwise it took me a while to realize where we were and I think the context of it being in space would do wonders for grabbing the attention of the reader

                              Great opening line. Sets up the comedic and sarcastic tone of the character.

Wow what a start! Who knew the favorite thing would be glimmering bags of bodily waste?
