“…Most people give up at the part of the story where things are the worst, where the situation feels hopeless. But that is when hope is needed most. Only those who persevere can find their true ending…”Legendary by stephanie garber
📖”After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legends true name The only chance she has of uncovering Legends identity is to win Caraval, a dangerous game which just became even more deadly.” 📖
I’m not sure how Garber did it, but she delivered BIG in this one. .
I loved Tella’s voice and story even more than Scarlett’s. Tella is a force to be reckoned with, and she doesn’t let anything get in the way of what she wants. It was a truly exhilarating ride of twists and turns that I COULD NOT PUT DOWN! Took me mere hours to read.
I loved the real depth that Garber showed us, not only in Tella, but in Dante’s character as well. I also loved that she resolved the issue I had with the last book and I got more background into the world they live in.
The issues that I had in Caraval were definitely not an issue for me in this second book. I felt that the world building was done really well, and we get a better scope and understanding of this world that she has created.
I will admit that the big “reveal” at the end of the book wasn’t a surprise to me. I guessed it while I was reading the first book, but the twist AFTER the “reveal” was epic and I did not see it coming. 😱
Such a good read! 🙌🏼 Highly recommend if you love YA Fantasy.
