Before you enter the world of Caraval, you 
must remember that it’s all a game . . .

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their ruthless father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the legendary, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

Then, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation to Caraval finally arrives. So, Tella enlists a mysterious sailor’s help to whisk Scarlett away to this year’s show. But as soon as the trio arrives, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nonetheless soon becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with her sister, with Legend, and 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.



Why I'm waiting on this one!

This novel sure has a very intriguing plot! I like the concept of a game that becomes all too real. Not a new concept, really, but this author gives it a great, and very original twist. Also, we don't have enough novels about sisters helping each other. So this is another element that caught my attention. And, of course, that GORGEOUS cover grabbed me as soon as ti saw it!! I'm such a sucker for beautiful covers!!

  4. I've seen this one around everywhere it seems. It does sound like a great book I just hope it lives up to its hype. The cover is really pretty and I saw an ARC on Booktube that had red page edges. It was really cool and I wonder if the actual one will be that way.
