Thank you to Netgalley for the arc!!

 

**This review will be spoiler free.**

 

Continuing right after the events of Caraval, we find ourselves in the POV of Tella, Scarlett’s sister. We learn of a certain debt that she owes and BAM, we’re back into the world of Caraval. This time, she is after Legend himself. She needs his real name and identity and she’d do most anything to get it.

Tella is a determined character, just like her sister. She’s also more complex as we read on. She has secrets just as everybody in Caraval does.

As much as I love Stephanie’s writing, I felt as though this one lost a little bit of the magic and intrigue. What I loved about the first book was the magical feel of the game itself. This one lacked that. Though it did make up for it in a sense with some pretty smoking male characters.

WHY AM ATTRACTED TO THE OBVIOUS BAD GUY????

What I also loved how I couldn’t trust anyone, not even Scarlett herself. Not after the first book. you can’t fool me, Garber!!!

Anyhow, some things were predictable if you listened closely and some things you could guess. Even though I did, the ending was still very much surprising. Basically, like the first, this was a fun ride.

WHAT I LIKED:

Lovely writing-check
Great characters-check
Romance-double check

WHAT I DID NOT LIKE

Lack of magic
Predictability.

 

Still, A very awesome book. I cannot wait for the third.
