Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval (Caraval, #1)Caraval by Stephanie Garber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I listened to this epic, grand story and loved Rebecca Soler's narration of two sisters, an abusive father, a constricted life, and the chance(s) to escape it all to find love, happiness, hope, and maybe fear? Told from Scarlett's POV; Solar's voice was real showing her love and fear for younger sister, Tella. Their father is a governor in their small town and has been hitting them and psychologically holdoing them hostage for years (ever since their mother disappeared. As Scarlett looks forward to marrying a duke and spiriting her sister to safety with her new marriage- tickets arrive for the Caraval, which grants the winner a wish. As Scarlett prepares to run away and participate in Caraval but get back in time for her wedding- oh do things go so wrong, change, etc. With Caraval, no one is who they seem, there is a problem with time, people lie, scheme, and act as riddles and clues spur players forward. I loved Scarlett and her pull toward Julian was sizzling. I can't wait for Book 2!
