“Most of my life, I’ve romanticized death. I used to love the idea of something being so tremendous that it was worth dying for. But I was wrong. I think the most magnificent things are worth living for.”
🌟 Do you know that student that used to sit in the back seat, was OK but at high school they suddenly had this glow up and got the highest marks?? Finale was that student for me!!
🌟 I will always recall this series as the book that I thought would be a standalone, after reading Caraval, I discovered that there is another book and I read Legendary and discovered that it was a trilogy. When the title for this book was released, I had 2 feelings: relieved that it was probably the end of a series and a little bit disappointed because the title did not foreshadow a creative ending!!
🌟 I was wrong! Finale was the ending that I would have never expected! let me remind you that I gave the first and second books 2.5 and 3 stars consequently. I felt like Stephanie read my last review and took some of my noted and consideration. Yeah, I know it never happened, but a guy can imagine!
🌟 The writing was great, I found many quotes I liked and I was not bored as happened it the previous books! I am a big fan of mythology and Folklore and so I was happy because many things got explained at last. I did not expect to get all the answers and I didn’t, but it is OK because I think with something as magical as the Caraval game, we will never understand it all!
🌟 The characters were also great, I appreciate that we got both Tella and Scarlett POVs and although I am team Tella, I really wanted to see the 2 and I got that.
🌟 The plot was interesting and what I like about this series is that I can’t predict what will happen, it was kind of chaotic in the first book and it got better and better with every book! I also really like that Love was used to advance the plot and it was a main theme in the story but it was not forced and it was not all about love! It was used as a mean to an end and that made me happy for some reason!
🌟 Summary: Finale was a great ending which I did not expect to have, writing endings is a very hard thing and Stephanie outdid herself on this one. Better writing, better characters and world-building. I will be checking the author’s next books for sure!
