I really wished I liked this more than I did. IThe flow of it was very different from the first book. I also thought it would answer a few questions I had from the first book. TBH some of the book made the first book not make sense or made me question things. Since it‘s a trilogy and I already ordered the third book I‘m going to continue but we‘ll see how it goes.

3/5 Very slow start. I think it took me about 40% to really get into it. It should be noted that I read Caraval years ago...and I didn't remember feeling that Tella was so immature. She probably was then, but I really felt it this time around. The love interest was interesting, but not mesmerizing, nor did I want them together enough to root for them in the end. The writing is still just as good and I appreciate the creativity of the Caraval world

“not everyone gets a true ending. there are two types of endings because most people give up at the part of the story where things are the worst, where the situation feels hopeless. but that‘s when hope is needed most. only those who persevere can find their true ending.“

In book 2 of the Caraval series, our focus moves from Scarlett to her sister, Tella. After a case of mistaken identity, Tella is now the player of Caraval. She plays to save her own life, the fate of the kingdom from the dealt Fates, and the heart of the man she loves...

Book 2 introduces some pretty fantastic new characters, they often take a back seat to the romance. It felt overwrought and with characters underutilised... Still good though.

I LOVED this book. I picked it back up while at a football game yesterday, less than 50 pages in, and finished it last night. This series is so fantastic so far. I love the characters and the world they live in. I can't wait to start Finale later today, although I'll be sad to say goodbye.

Sometimes I think I get overly emotionally involved in books. Especially when I find myself getting physically agitated when characters are so caught up in their own feelings to blatantly ignore what you want them to see...some people yell at their TVs I yell at my books. 🤷‍♀️

Leniverse I do too. In fact, I believe I did a bit of yelling when reading that particular book. 😂 5mo

Not as unputdownable as the first book, but enough to make me want to read the third book 👍

I think I waited too long to read the second book, because I had forgotten so many details from the first, that I had to look up recaps of it.

JennyM I would be the same. Can‘t remember much about book 1. Happy hols! 😊 5mo

I had my last day at work before 3 weeks vacation yesterday! I should be packing and prepping for Vietnam on Monday, but I haven‘t read in a print book for over a week, so this is how I‘m spending my first day off - home alone, tea, stack of cookies and a book that‘ll probably make me stay up too late to finish it 😅

I suddenly understand why this book... or was it the last book, came with a deck of cards. Though, that deck was designed like a deck of regular playing cards. I imagined a Deck of Destiny as tarot cards... and I'm having a lot of flashes to the arcana chronicles when I think this, and of the fates. It's hard not to blend books like this..

Very infrequently does a sequel beat the first book in my opinion and yet that‘s exactly what Legendary did. It comes at you with the same mystery and mystical story that the first one had and throws in that beautiful dash of slow burn sexual tension. I can honestly say I think I also fell in love with Legend.

I was vacillating between 3.5 & 4 stars for this one. There was a lot I liked but quite a bit I didn‘t like. My main criticisms are that it‘s all show & tell rather than character involvement which brings a story to life & to say its about a game, it barely features.

In the end I decided it was a ‘pick‘ so it gets 4🌟

#54 of my year & I‘m excited to dive back into this world. What the actual hell is about to happen? My anxiety is lurking over my shoulder today 😅

Caffeinated_Reader Omg I think my head will explode with everything that just happened. I can‘t believe all the sacrifices and love and pure insanity that ended this part. I so badly want to read Finale right now but I want to process this ending first. I thought I was jealous of Scarlet and Julian‘s love but my oh my it‘s nothing compared to Dante & Dotnatellas. Swoon. Unfinished business indeed 🎩 7mo

Any Stephanie Garber fans out there? I hadn‘t read Legendary so I figured it was time now that Finale is almost here! I ended up liking it even more than Caraval, I think! Tella really annoyed me in book 1 but I loved her in book 2. Plus the whole new plot about the fates was really interesting! Are you guys looking forward to Finale next week?

For centuries the Fates were locked away, but now they wish to come out and play. If they regain their magic the world will never be the same, but you can help stop them by winning the game.
