Caraval is quite unlike other books you’ve read and will sweep you away in the story from the outset. It’s book one of two and it is refreshing to see an author who, bucking the trend on unnecessary trilogies, gives a series the length needed to properly tell the tale. The setting is similar to The Night Circus, but there’s a real piratical adventure feel to Caraval.

Great for fans of Melissa Meyer, Maggie Stiefvater, & Sarah J Maas.
