Welcome to Colsten Can’t Wait, which my version of Waiting On Wednesday! Every week, my cat and I pick out an upcoming book that we’re really looking forward to and highlight it! This week, we picked out Finale.
Synopsis (beware spoilers for Caraval and Legendary!):
Welcome, welcome to Caraval…all games must come to an end. 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. . .
I wasn’t expecting to like this trilogy as much as I did. But there is something comforting about the flashiness of this world. It doesn’t try to hard too hard. It’s full of pretty dresses, wild parties, and secrets. And it owns that. I’m really looking forward to being back in this world for the conclusion to this story. I am a little nervous about a couple plot points, but I’m going to wait to pass judgment until I read the book! There are so many paths this book could go down and it should be interesting to see which one it takes. Scarlette and Tella have a POV in this one and I’m looking forward to seeing how their stories intertwine. And I’m ready to see more pretty dresses!
Thank you for reading!
