Legendary (Caraval Series #2)

Published May 29th 2018

RATING: ★★★★★

5 out of 5 stars


A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

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 arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet 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 Legend’s true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister’s. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice, but now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever…

Welcome, welcome to Caraval . . . the games have only just begun.

Legendary (Caraval Series #2)

I loved this book! I loved finding out who Legend is, and I love the magic of Caraval. 

Okay, I have said all that I needed to say. Who said that book reviews needed to be long? Haha, just kidding… Kind of.

Legendary is the thrilling sequel to Caraval, and guys, I am so excited that this is a trilogy and there is one more book to go because I am not willing to let go of these characters yet.

Once again Stephanie Garber’s words swept me up in their magic. I was carried away in the nights of Caraval. These two books will definitely get you out of reading slump, and make sure that you don’t have any plans, because these books will make you forget the world, and you will likely read them in one sitting!

At first I was kind of sad that Legendary is told from Tella’s perspective and not Scarlet’s but a few chapters in, I was so caught up with the story that it didn’t even matter. Also now looking back, I think I prefer Tella’s POV to Scarlet’s.

I love that some of the characters were the same and that one of the sister’s were still playing in Caraval. There is such mystery and magic to these books, and I am a fan.

Also here is a link to Stephanie Garber’s Pinterest board for Legendary: Legendary Pinterest Board.

Pinterest is absolutely amazing and I am in LOVE.
