“Stephanie Garber delighted readers last year with her debut, Caraval,and her second story is just as beautiful and engrossing. In Legendary, we see Caraval through the eyes of the less trusting, more jaded Donatella. Starting out with Tell’s backstory, the reader begins to unwind the lies that surround her and, in doing so, the lies that permeate their world. Dark and dangerous,Legendarybrings the reader back to a decadent world where the only thing you know for certain is that you don’t know anything.

New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Garber’s limitless imagination takes flight once more in the colorful, mesmerizing, and immersive sequel to the bestselling breakout audiobook debut Caraval
A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.
After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.
The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister's. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval...the games have only just begun.
Praise for Legendary:
"...this is a tour de force of imagination." — Kirkus
