Welcome, welcome to Finale, the third and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Caraval series!

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 fiancĂ©, 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. . . (Goodreads)

Finale, the third and final book in the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber, was high on my list of anticipated reads for this spring, and I couldn’t wait to read this book to see how the story was going to end. Even though I’m not sure I was ready to let go of the series, I am pretty satisfied with the way things wrapped up!

Let me start this by saying that I have been a fan of the Caraval series since the very beginning. I absolutely loved both the storyline and world-building for this series, as well as the really interesting characters. I can only think of one other book that I have read that is similar to this series, and I really enjoyed the originality of the story. It was fascinating, and addictive, and I’m so sad to see it come to an end!

As I mentioned above, Finale is the third and final book in this series, and I was super curious to see how things would work out in the end. The storyline follows much along the lines as the previous books, and picks up right where Legendary leaves off. I was, once again, absolutely fascinated with this story, and I flew through the pages much faster than I expected to. The ending wraps up quite nicely, and in a much different way than I expected. I’m really thrilled that all of my favorite characters got their happily ever after as well, especially Scarlett, who has been a favorite of mine since the beginning.

Overall; All good things must eventually come to an end, and while I’m still not ready to say goodbye to this story and its characters, I’m very much happy with the way things ended in Finale. I can’t wait for my finished copy of this book to arrive so I can gaze at them sitting on my shelves, and I can’t wait to read these books again soon! I will also definitely be keeping my eye out for more books by Stephanie Garber in the future, and I hope we don’t have to wait long for something new by her! If you’ve not yet checked out this series, I highly recommend you do so!
