Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“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.”

My Thoughts & Review

So, after putting off reading Caraval, I finally picked it up in April and posted my review in June. After posting my review I went on to read this book. As I wasn’t blown away by Caraval, I didn’t set my expectations too high for this one.

I liked this book a little better than Caraval. It felt faster paced and the story felt more interesting, but at the same time I felt it was sort of a retelling of the first book but in s slightly different way. The narrative started off fun, but fell a bit flat in the middle for me. It did pick up by the end and was excited to see how it ended but I was left disappointed.

Sadly, for me this was just a “Meh” kind of read. Once again I wasn’t blown away by this one but I will be reading the final book, just to see how it all ends and also because one of my goals is to finish the whole series this year.
