Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved 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 far-away, 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. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval . . . beware of getting swept too far away.

My New Favorite Book

This a story of magic and deception, sisterly love and romantic love, and finding the freedom and boldness to live the way you’ve always wanted to.
As a high school girl who reads up to three books a week, I think it’s pretty impressive that it’s my new favorite book series. I can’t wait for Finale to come out and I know it will be even better!

Hated it :(

No substance to characters, too much manipulation and emotional abuse, and too little information about magic in the world. Literally no character development as Scarlett was shallow, whiny, and annoying from the first page to the last. That goes for all the other characters as well. I was left feeling frustrated and like my time had been monumentally waisted. Not a good read.
