Legendary: The magical Sunday Times bestselling sequel to Caraval Relié – 29 mai 2018
A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.
The stunning, internationally bestselling sequel to Caraval
'Extravagantly imaginative and enchanting . . . Pure magic and escapism' Cecelia Ahern
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.
The games have only just begun.

Generally I don’t read the blurbs of sequels to books that I’ve adored – and I’ve somehow managed to avoid any ‘Caraval’ related spoilers over the years – so I honestly didn’t know what to expect from ‘Legendary’. It’s pretty safe to say that this novel left me utterly star struck though. Even though I adored ‘Caraval’ in some ways this felt like it was on a whole other level. All of the magic and enchantment, danger and desire from the first book in the series was there. Yet the mythology simultaneously went so much deeper and in such an unexpected direction that I was brimming with delight.
If you’re intrigued by tarot or a fan of God-like beings then this is absolutely the book for you. There’s a system of Fates that I truly didn’t expect and honestly I adored it. I’ve seen mention of Jacks previously but I didn’t know anything about him. And now...now I’m obsessed. Who doesn’t find themselves intrigued by an individual like him? Scarlett didn’t appear as much as I’d have anticipated but in a way this added to the mystery of the novel. Getting to know Tella and Dante more thoroughly was glorious though. And in truth there really wasn’t a single dull moment in this book.
The writing was lyrical and enchanting throughout. The chemistry between characters was superb. The plot kept me utterly enraptured. And I honestly can’t get over the way in which the world developed. I could gush about the God-like Fates for pages in truth, even though many of them you only learn about briefly. The history of this land has left me utterly spellbound.
So really I’d say that it goes without saying that I recommend this book. It’s a beautifully magical, gloriously lyrical, delight of a novel and I truly cannot wait to dive into book three. Fingers crossed it’s as good as the first two because both of them were pure delights. And, given events towards the end of the novel, I seriously can’t wait to discover where the plot will ultimately go.
I really loved Caraval even more upon re-read but everything about Legendary is just so much more, more magical, more mysterious, more dangerous and much more is at stake. I love Tella and Dante and I cannot wait to see how this will all end and I'm so intrigued to see more of the fates as they can only get more wicked. Beautifully written with a captivating story, this was just such a magical read.
Thank you so much to Netgalley for the E-arc in exchange for an honest review
The second of the series was just as easy to read as the first book. I actually loved reading this book from Tella's perspective rather than Scarlett's. I definitely find Tella a more interesting and endearing character than Scar, who I found to be annoying and reliant and a definite "damsel in distress" which I'm not a fan of.
I loved exploring Tella and Dante's growing relationship even though it started off a bit possessive and toxic. By the end of the book I was fully rooting for them to be together forever and I'm not afraid to admit that I am now in love with Dante.
The plot of the book was quite similar to Caraval so you did kind of know what was going to happen, but that didn't stop me absolutely loving this book.
The story focuses on Tella, and how she is searching for her mother. She enters another Caraval game, however rumours suggest that this time it may not just be a game of performance, but a game with real affects. With everything to play for including her life, Tella needs to be bold and make some tough decisions.
This book series is just incredible and it keeps on getting better! I cannot get enough of this fictional world and all of the characters that come with it. It is extremely well written, with lots of unexpected twists, and I am extremely excited to read Finale.
This series is perfect for all those who love fantasy books and want to read something that is pure escapism. You are guaranteed to get completely hooked and addicted.
I don’t want to say too much as I do not want to spoil or ruin this series for anyone, but give them a go!
