    Legendary has a whole new meaning

    If you thought Caraval was entertaining, you are in for a treat with Legendary. It's a bittersweet feeling when you finish a book. And Legendary is the bittersweet chocolate ganache on top of the Caraval cake (did you enjoy that lame pun? I did.) All the hopes and dreams that were built up in Caraval have a different test/trial in Legendary. New hopes, wishes, and dreams are equally tentative. We were told in Caraval it's all a game. In Legendary, it's said to be real. But which is worse, thinking it's a game or knowing it's real? Legendary stole my heart and I'm left in mourning. I'm mourning my hopes and denials. You can only blindly cling to naivety for so long. When the truth comes out, you are left to mourn the loss of your innocence. Legendary leaves your innocence in tatters on the stairs of a temple seemingly forgotten. It leaves your heart bleeding on its pages. Legendary left me hoping for...everything! But don't cling to despair the way I am because eventually the next book will be here. Just grab your blanket and rock in the corner with me while we wait!

    The second chapter of the Caraval saga did not catch me as much as the first. I found that the book had a less dynamic narrative and a slower story, in fact the first turn of events appears towards the middle, in my opinion a little "late". The story itself is interesting and for the most part maintains the modus operandi of the first novel, which sometimes seems a bit boring, because we have the impression of reading the same reused story, with some interesting elements put here and there. I don't want to make comment about the love story with all possible and imaginable clichés. I hope to read the third chapter of the series as soon as possible.

    Not as good as the first one

    I want to start by saying that I adore Caraval, and I mean no disrespect to Stephanie Garber because I know that she's an amazing author, but I personally didn't love this sequel. One of the things I really liked about the first book was Scarlett and Julian. They both went through great character development, and were interesting to read about. So, needless to say, I was really disappointed that Tella was narrating and Scarlett and Julian were barely mentioned. A lot of this sort of felt like a rewrite of Caraval to me. Another thing is the writing. I've heard a lot of complaints about the writing style in this series. This wasn't an issue for me with Caraval, but in Legendary there were a few random descriptive sentences that I just couldn't make sense of. I don't want to sound too negative, because I really do like this author's work, and still want to read more of it in the future. Just not from this series. This is only my personal opinion, but I love the mystery of Caraval's ending, and I think it fits perfectly with the feeling of the novel. I feel that it's a spectacular standalone novel, so I personally prefer it without the sequel.

    If you read the first book, then you're in for a treat because this one captivated me even more and I loved every minute of it

    Read it as a recommendation

    The book has a unique setting and the characters are interesting. I liked the point of view better in the sequel. However, it took me a while to get used to the author’s writing style and repetitiveness. I almost gave up on the first book in the series after getting through the first few chapters, but I’m glad I didn’t.
