REVIEW: Finale by Stephanie Garber
Updated: Feb 15
This book I put off for a while, not because I didn’t want it to end, I just didn’t have the motivation to finish it. The story started to get on my nerves a bit but I still persisted through this last book so I could complete the book trilogy.
Finale begins right after Legendary ends, with Scarlett and Donatella releasing their long lost mother from the deck of destiny, they finally realise that they want to spend time together but of course that wouldn’t happen. After Legend claims throne in Valenda, chaos ensues, and he releases the rest of the fates and they are gaining power quickly. Tella now only has interactions with Legend through out her dreams but finds him masking as the one boy she fell for in the last Caraval, Dante. She knows that he is tricking her but wouldn’t you like to see the face of somebody you loved one last time? Meanwhile Scarlett is trying not to think about Julian and instead think of her fiancé, the Count, but that doesn’t happen when Julian turns up unexpectedly one the day and so she devises a plan and game for the count and Julian in order to test their limits and see who should win her hand. I mean, this book is about games and what it should definitely include one for her heart after all.
As always, Stephanie Garber tells a tale of love that is written in the most spectacular beautiful way. In the end, it just seems like I wasn’t particularly in the mood for this book, which is understandable given the year in which I read this. However, I will say that the dual point of views gave a good insight of their sisterly bond but also tells of how they are different as well. It would be boring to just have a carbon copy of each other. They two definitely balance each other out.
3 out of 5 stars.
