They say not to judge a book by its cover but this is a very beautiful book, whose whimsical appearance matched the imaginative world within. Stephanie Garber's debut novel, Caraval, sweeps you away to a mysterious island where you cant trust anyone or anything you meet during the game. Scarlet must rely on her instincts to survive, keep out of her cruel fathers grasp, and save her sister before time runs out. When I started Caraval I was hooked almost immediately; I just had to know when this magical world was going to reveal is dark, dangerous underbelly, and what it had in store for our will-they-won't-they main characters.
Believing that she will never be allowed to participate in the annual Caraval performance when her ruthless father arranges her marriage, Scarlett receives the invitation she has always dreamed of before her sister, Tella, is kidnapped by the show's mastermind organizer. A first novel. Simultaneous eBook.
