This is another gem by Stephanie Garber. Who, in a total fangirl Facebook moment, I found out is friends with one of my friends! Pardon me while I do a little giddy happy dance 😉
I just loved Caraval when I read it, and I devoured it so quickly! When I found out there was a sequel, I preordered it instantly. The hardcover book arrived on the release date, just before my June whirlwind of airplane travels. I’m learning how to pack light, so now I only with my Kindle. Sadly, Legendary had to be put to the side until I could give it the time and attention it deserves. I also had Legendary on hold from the library before it was released (May 29, 2018), but so did half a bajillion other people, so it wasn’t my turn–I was still 11th on the waitlist of 8 copies before I cancelled my hold this morning.
So what did I think? Undeniably, I love it.
“A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.” (Amazon description)
Legendary is just as dark and mysterious as Caraval. This one is narrated by Tella, Scarlett’s sister, and takes us on a wild ride filled with costly deals, deep secrets, and unsuspected betrayal. This book is unpredictable, and keeps twisting and turning just when you think there are answers. The vivid descriptions and dynamic characters drew me in immediately.
The book hangover is strong right now. I am still looking up, wondering what is real and what is all part of the game. Is there even a way to tell the difference?!
I can’t wait until the 3rd book in the series, Finale, comes out in 2019.
PS. If you’re into audiobooks, then definitely listen to this one. My most favoritest audiobook narrator, Rebecca Soler (she did the whole Lunar Chronicles series), reads this one! Even though I haven’t listened to it, but I know it’s good!
