Sequel to the wonderful Caraval, that’s arguably even better than the first.
I finished Legendary this afternoon. My heart is still racing. This book!
Without a doubt, Legendary is even better than Caraval, which is some feat since Caraval was without a doubt one of the top books of 2017. Somehow, Stephanie Garber has crafted a tale that once again has you doubting what’s real and what’s only a part of the game, full of unexpected twists and turns. Even things that you are fairly certain are real you question, and that really is the true beauty of this book!
Legendary focuses on the story of Tella, who is a much feistier character than her older sister Scarlett, and as such makes the story a lot more fast-paced and unpredictable. I couldn’t help but adore Tella. She takes on everything that’s thrown at her with such a headstrong attitude as she is thrust into the world of Caraval.
I don’t want to make this a spoiler review, so I’m going to try to be as obscure as possible, but know that so many fantastical new characters are introduced in Legendary, as well as some incredible development of existing characters. I finished the book with a new book boyfriend (oh hi Dante!) and a thirst for more!
I have heard that this is just a duology, but, that said, I’m desperate for more and want to know what happens next! So, if you’re reading this, Stephanie, PLEASE can there be more!
