Our Review

Alright. I loved Caraval and was so excited to read this one because everyone seemed to like it more than Caraval. For the life of me I don’t know why.

It was good, but I feel like Legendary went darker and in doing that lost some of it’s magic? But they came out pretty even for me because of the adventure in Legendary.

Now when I say darker, I don’t mean a lot. It was in the same tone, but I found myself more concerned about the relationship between Tella and Dante and less caught up in the actual story.

Tella is trying to save her mother by winning Caraval. Scarlett, who is still having Julian troubles, is opposed to anything to do with their mother because she feels abandoned. Tella being the headstrong girl that I hated in Caraval has to go and do her own thing regardless of anyone else’s opinions or feelings. She won me over a little, but to be honest, I’m still not over her bullshit from the last book. Don’t lie to your sister! Her and Julian suck for hiding even more things from Scarlett in Legendary.

The twist with the fates was definitely an interesting one though. I never would have thought that it would even be a storyline, much less the main one. The royal heir seemed a little obvious at first and then BAM! Garber surprised me a few times which I always appreciate.

I have one continuity issue that I’m not a fan of, but it would spoil this whole review, so I will keep it to myself.

That ending though!

If you want to know who Legend is, well then you are in for a TREAT.

“Every good story needs a villain.
But the best villains are the ones you secretly like.”

I was pretty happy with that result. Even though I have my own theory that I will report in my Finale review so that I can keep this one spoiler free. Apparently the theme of the book AND this review is to NEVER TELL ANYONE A THING

  1. I actually don’t know which book I liked more; Legendary or Caraval. I missed Julian and Scarlet and wanted more page time for them and I wanted more of the magic I got from Caraval.

    The last thing I need to rant about was how disappointed I was with legend’s reveal. It wasn’t the who but the how it was revealed. I knew it and I was mad that it was too easy to guess. Caraval had me guessing right up until the final page – I had no idea what the heck was going on or who I could trust. I was wary of Julian and everyone so Legendary was a let down. I wish Stephanie had tricked me into trusting that particular character so that when they were revealed as legend I would have been left dumbfounded and betrayed.

  2. I have read Caraval but not Legendary (I really need to read that one soon) but I just haven’t had the time. But I thought Caraval was ok. I liked it but not an absolute favorite but I’m going to reread it and depending on how I feel, I’ll decide if I want to read Legendary or not.
