The games continue in the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestseller LEGENDARY, the mesmerizing sequel to CARAVAL

A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her cruel father and saved her sister, Scarlett. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn't yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend's true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend's identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more--and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets . . . including her sister's. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can't fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend's name, she'll lose everything she cares about--maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval...the games have only just begun.

Review quote

#1 NEW YORK TIMES bestseller
IndieNext pick
Goodreads Choice Award finalist

"Themes of love, betrayal, family and forgiveness are explored as the narrative ratchets up the tension toward a conclusion that will leave readers clamoring for more. Fans of Caraval will love it, and new readers will be enthralled by this immersive and imaginative world." --USA TODAY

"Legendary is a whirlwind adventure that contains vivid, complex, and enchanting characters you'll want to follow to the last page." --BuzzFeed (Best YA Book of the Year)

"A fantastic world reminiscent of Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. Rather addictive . . . maybe even legendary." --The Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"The setting of the game is fantastic in its spectacle and intrigue, and Garber pushes her world building even further. . . . The pacing is impeccable, with urgency increasing to an almost breathless point as Tella runs from clue to clue, while bittersweet truths and devastating betrayals unfold." --The Bulletin, starred review

"A tour de force of imagination. Themes of love, betrayal, and the price of magic (and desire) swirl like Caraval's enchantments, and Dante's sensuous kisses will thrill readers as much as they do Tella. Dark, seductive, over-the-top: Characters and book alike will enthrall those who choose to play." --Kirkus Reviews

"Caraval was a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns, and the latest installment lives up to that standard and more. Garber succeeds marvelously in broadening this magical, seductive world." --New York Daily News
