Caraval By Stephanie Garber Review

Scarlett Dragna has never left the tiny island where she and her sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval—the faraway, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show—are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt-of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nevertheless she becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic.

I need to admit I was blindsided by several things that happened in this book. That ending left me scratching my head wondering what the hell just happened?

That being said I loved this book.

Scarlet was a very likable character, her love for her sister and her desperation to keep her safe pushed her to leave her comfort zone and discover more about herself.

Julian is a great character there where times I was so sure of who he was and what he wanted and I was wrong very very wrong.

Caraval in itself is another character, I loved how every little thing played a part of the story there was no unimportant detail from the stores to the colors of the carpets everything brings an unique twist to the events that unfold. Simply amazing.

Legend it's a complete unknown but remains the most important and interesting character of the book. I want to know what drives him, his motivation. I'm really intrigued.

I loved everything. It's different, interesting and unique. Its definitely worth the read.
