This brilliant Caraval paperback collection features the three titles in the best-selling young adult fantasy fiction trilogy by American author Stephanie Garber. This box set features all three books in the series, including Caraval, Legendary, and Finale. The series focuses on the obscurity of fantasy and reality amidst all illusions of magic. These books will keep you guessing what’s real and what’s not in the labyrinth of Caraval.
Welcome to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems. In a fantastical wonderland filled with magic, mystery and adventure, follow Scarlett and her beloved sister Tella as they discover the unbreakable bond of sisterly love amidst the chaos and ruin of their lives.
While trying to survive under the rule of her abusive father, Scarlett agrees to an arranged marriage and laments about her dreams of seeing Caraval on an enchanted island. In this once-a-year performance, the audience is able to participate in elaborate shows for a week as part of an immersive magical game.
But this year is different- an invitation arrives just for her! And just as suddenly, Scarlett is swept away in a whirlwind of danger and fantastical illusions when her sister, Tella, is kidnapped. Unlike the previous year’s theme, this year's Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her wins it all. The first book in the series, Caraval is a number one New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller and has been translated into over 25 languages.
Legend is the magical Sunday Times bestselling sequel to Caraval and an elaborate continuation of the first instalment in the series. After escaping their abusive father and breaking off her sister’s disastrous arranged marriage, Donnatella and Scarlett are not out of the woods yet. Tella must uncover the real identity of Legend, Caraval’s mastermind organiser, or she is to lose everything- maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever. In a series of heartbreaking betrayals and mind-bending twists and turns, the fate of these two sisters will forever be changed when each keeps secrets, and the future of their loved ones hangs in the balance.
In the stunning conclusion to the trilogy, Finale is the final book in Stephanie Garber’s magical series. As lives, empires and hearts hang in the balance, the three must all make dangerously life-changing decisions. Tella must decide who she is to trust, Scarlett will need to do the impossible after uncovering a secret that upends her life, and Legend has a choice to make that will forever change and define him.
