The instant #1 New York Times bestseller! Stephanie Garber's limitless imagination takes flight once more in the colorful, mesmerizing, and immersive sequel to the bestselling breakout debut Caraval... 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.… (mer)

I read a lot of books, but I don't really get lost in a book nearly as often as I'd like to. This book, the follow-up to the equally engrossing Caraval, is just the kind of story I which sweeps me away. It's the perfect escapist read: the setting is glamorous, the story is complicated, romantic interests abound, the dresses are gorgeous, and secrets are plentiful. The plot keep me guessing and, while this novel ended satisfyingly, I am excited to read the final book in the Caraval trilogy. ( )

This is a fantastic sequel! As an audio book, it was faced-paced, full of intricate details, and captivating. The plot weaves through ideas and clues as it builds up to a fantastic ending. It was fun to talk about clues as they came along, another aspect you get as an audio book that you don't often get with other reading styles. I know i haven't read the final book yet, but i already want to read these books again. ( )

First off, I'd like to say that I could not put this book down. It was appealing for entirely different reasons than the first book of the series. I enjoyed them both, but for separate reasons. In the first novel, it felt like I was getting lost and entranced by Caraval with Scarlett. In this book, I wasn't swept away by the secrets and wonder. In Legendary, Caraval is stripped down in many ways. Legendary doesn't try to replicate the same feelings of mystery around Caraval itself that the first book does, and this makes sense, due to the difference in the characters narrating the novel. While the first book is about weaving the beautiful world of Caraval, Legendary is about unweaving it, which is fascinating in a different way.


Now for my list of unanswered questions posed by this book.

1. Tella's bleeding. Jacks's heartbeat has returned, which suggests that Tella is his true love, and therefore is immune to the deadly effects of his kiss. So, why is she still bleeding from her eyes, nose, mouth, fingertips, and her heartbeat is slow? Even after she received Legend/Dante's blood, she still bled.

So why? Is Tella not his true love? (Did he kiss someone else in the meantime, and Tella is still dying?) Or possibly, did Legend give some of his blood to Jacks as the sacrifice needed to open the vault?

2. Legend's sacrifice. This is quite obvious. What was the loophole? We know Legend/Dante must have given something dear in order to temporarily break the curse. As mentioned before, maybe he gave some of his power to Jacks. That's all I can think of at the moment.

3. Jacks's escape. How did he so fully escape the cards when the rest of the powerful Fates appeared to not be able to do so? Seems shifty to me.

4. Jack's as the heir. Since he is a Fate, it would be impossible for him to be Elantine's heir, so how does he have everyone convinced that he is the heir? (unless I missed something)

5. Jacks's last finacee. It seems like he really did care for her and did not kill her. So who killed her? He did vaguely say someone did it because they didn't want him to come to power. (Someone who would not want him to be in power = Legend?)

6. Paradise/Paloma's imprisonment. Who imprisoned her and how did they find her?

7. Dante/Legend as the heir. After I heard Dante's story about the how his parents sold him off and Elantine's story about how she lied to one of her children to protect them and that caused them to never speak again, I figured that Dante/Legend being Elantine's child could be a possibility. (this would mean that Julian, if he really is Dante/Legend's brother, would also be an heir??) Tella believes that he is only putting on an act, but could it actually be true?

8. Scarlett x Julian x the Count. Where was Scarlett sneaking off to when Tella tried to contact her? That was never revealed. It seems like Scarlett has forgiven Julian by the end of Legendary, but she's also in contact with the Count, so what role will this play in their relationship?

9. Caraval's winner's prize. Last time, it was clear that it was Tella. However, in this Caraval, the prize is still unknown, although it seems as if we'll find that out pretty quickly in the next book. Honestly, I'm not really sure what it could be at this point. There is nothing that Tella seems to obviously desire now that her mother has been returned to her.

10. How did Paradise/Paloma acquire the Deck of Destiny? Who did she steal it from, and how? And why?

11. What happens with the Fates now? We know there is still time before the Fates are able to fully awaken even though they've been released, but what will happen once that occurs? They are powerful, but they don't have their full powers, so how will they proceed?

12. The witch's identity Who is this mysterious figure who was able to trap all of the Fates within cards and grant Legend powers? I feel like she's going to make an appearance in the next book.

13. Nigel. He is obviously more than just another Caraval actor, and his intentions don't seem to exactly be for the benefit of Legend. Maybe he is a fate? Who knows.

This book was just as magical as the first! I loved it! The world of Caraval is just so beautiful and magical! Also, I love all the twists and turns and surprises that come with it! Definitely a series I recommend! ( )

I'd more give this a 4.5, I was expecting action and whimsy and it was very serious! which of course makes sense, but I didn't call the direction this book went and that's all that matters, what fantastical writing - I adore Tella, she was honestly my favourite part of the first book and I'm glad she got her own time to shine - it ended on quite the note and I can't wait to see what's in store in the next book.
