Book Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This was an incredible story – so engaging, with such marvelously detailed and deliciously deceitful characters… I’m thrilled beyond belief at the way it ended – it most definitely left it open for a sequel (or hopefully two or three), but without in any way diminishing or undermining the value of the story itself.

Scarlet wants to escape – her father is a nightmare: her life is an attempt to tap-dance among land mines he has laid for her and her sister, Donatella. She sees one path of escape: marriage. Her sister sees another: Caraval, the mysterious game/performance that has captivated the two sisters since childhood, and to which Scarlett has recently managed to score three exceedingly valuable tickets. The title of the book tells you the choice that Scarlet makes – but that choice is so much more complicated and layered than that statement implies…

This is a book full of magic and danger. No one is who they appear to be – not even the sisters themselves. The twists and turns are delicately layered, a parfait of intrigue, mystery, clues, and secrets piled upon secrets… Garber’s writing style is engaging and easy-going. The plot will pull you in and keep you turning pages faster and faster, waiting to see what fantastic creation Master Legend (the leader of Caraval) will deliver next…
