Caraval by Stephanie Garber

5 STARS!!!!


I didn’t want to finish it, because I was enjoying it so much, but I couldn’t stop reading it. There were twists and turns, magic and mayhem, and so much love. Crimson, oh, I’m sorry, I mean Scarlett, was a wonderful character to follow throughout this story, as her growth unraveled nicely. I loved the side stories that played into the main story line, and all the different ways the characters were connected. I was really invested in the what happened to the characters, and I loved the world Stephanie Garber built. At the end, I felt closure to the story, but I also wanted more of this would. Specifically, I wanted to learn more about the elusive Legend. I’m beyond excited for Legendary!!
