Hello Humans! As the year draws to a close, I’m continuing to eye up 2019 and all the amazing book releases that are coming. I’ve talked a bit about debuts, and I do intend to make a definitive list of new releases I want to read, but there are a heck of a lot of sequels coming too. One such sequel is, of course, the third book in the much-hyped Caraval series. I’ve read the first two books and was always left feeling a little flat but at this point, I’m too far in to give up now. So bring on Finale – I’m ready for all the metaphors.
It’s been two months since the last Caraval concluded, two months since the Fates have been freed from an enchanted deck of cards, two months since Tella has seen Legend, and two months since Legend claimed the empire’s throne as his own. Now, Legend is preparing for his official coronation and Tella is determined to stop it. She believes her own mother, who still remains in an enchanted sleep, is the rightful heir to the throne.
Meanwhile, Scarlett has started a game of her own. She’s challenged Julian and her former fiancé, Count Nicolas d’Arcy, to a competition where the winner will receive her hand in marriage. Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. She is unaware that her mother’s past has put her in the greatest danger of all.
Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win…and those who will lose everything.
Current release date May 30th 2019
