Legendary by Stephanie Garber Review

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.

This book was amazing way better than the first one. Tella is an amazing character, even though on the first installment she came across as childish and reckless, she´s super complex. Her actions are always fuelled by love. Yes she does reckless things but there’s a motivation and a goal she wants to achieve. I love her way more than I did her sister.

Dante is the dark night you didn’t know you needed until falls he upon you with those intense eyes, and cockiness. He´s hot and he knows it and flaunts it like there’s no tomorrow. He´s Dark and sexy but he’s also a mystery, one I wanted to unravel which is the reason I couldn’t out this book down.

This couple is so spicy that I often forgot how young they truly are.

The game this time around its quite different form last time, the stakes are higher than ever, the lines between truth and game aren´t standing anymore and it becomes quite entertaining to theorize on the outcome of the pieces on the board.

This book is full of surprises, some I saw coming a mile away others took me completely off guard. I really enjoyed the pace and the character development and being able to see a little about the last players and how they are doing after the last game. Yes, there’s some Scarlett and Julian on this one.

I can’t say more without spoiling so I’ll leave you with this.

In Legendary no one is who you think, no one tells the truth and the only character that does isn’t the one you think it is. Everything is a clue but none of them work as you think they do
