My Rating(s) : 🌟🌟🌟🌟
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 to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems…
First thing first, I don’t know how to rate this book. It’s pretty shocking and unbelievable ending. This book is such a beautiful liar that I’ve ever read. So finally I met Legend but, I don’t believe every single word to the ending (not until I finish Finale). I’m done being tricked in Caraval! However, I enjoy reading Legendary more compare to Caraval.
The storyline is pretty similar to Caraval because the ‘fake engagement’ was the main idea I think but, I love how the story developed where there’s a twist! I truly adore the MC, Donatella. Her boldness and ruthless definitely hyped me up. Her story was more adventurous and so melancholic compared to Scarlett. She had been through a lot! I also love the new character, Jacks. To be honest, I’m looking forward for Jacks and Tella more.
As for the setting, no doubt! I love Caraval world. It’s so magical. Full of tricks, so unique. I love the combination between real world and magical world. I do feel like I was in the game too.
