Finale by Stephanie Garber
Boy, what a ride. I still remember reading Caraval for the first time and just absolutely falling in love with the world and the characters and now here we are at the end. Stephanie Garber, I love you and this series and your creation so much, this will forever be a favorite series for me.
We’re swept away into more magical places and locations and we get to see more of our characters true nature than ever before and this book was just so satisfying as an ending to this amazing trilogy.
I love both Tella and Scarlett. Everyone always asks which sister I like better, but I don’t know if I could actually answer that question because they’re both amazing in their own ways. I loved that no matter who was narrating, I could tell immediately without even reading the name at the beginning of the chapter because each sister has such a unique voice and feel and I think that speaks volumes on Garber’s ability to write.
Both sisters have gone through so much since the beginning of Caraval and I loved watching their growth throughout the books. Neither of them strayed from who they truly are, but they both came into their own and really grew up over the course of these books and I just adored that growth.
I want to say so much about what happens throughout this book, but maybe I’ll come back to that another time because I would hate to ruin the magic that was this book for anyone.
I loved that this book was so focused on the Fates and their backstory. The concept behind them was so intriguing to me, I’ve always been a sucker for anything that involves fates, gods, mythology, any of that. So that aspect of these books just made me love them that much more.
The ending of this book was perfect, I absolutely love how things were wrapped up and I cannot wait to get my hands on any other series or books Garber writes in the future.
