A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win. Legendary by Stephanie Garber

This was a great tale but not as great as Caraval, in my opinion. Legendary was slower and less magical. It was a story between two people and their love for each other. I was expecting more magic, more games or even just mystery, just like Caraval but in the end, this story was mostly character built then it was action. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it was still a prominent storyline with great characters.

Even though I knew who Legend was from the beginning, it was still an entertaining story, for the most part. The plotting did have some enjoyable moments and some twists that were truly unpredictable. Still, Legendary wasn’t exactly a fast-paced story that I thought was going to be but I retained my need to continue till the end. If without, say, does pleasant bits I don’t know what would thoroughly grip this story from being overly tedious.

With that being said I’m still looking forward to the third book in this trilogy. Even though I didn’t quite enjoy reading it because the trill and mystery weren’t the same as it was for Caraval. I’m still invested in these characters and quite honestly, I need to know what exactly is going to happen.

  1. Oh I would hate to have figured out who Legend was so soon in the story! Though I’m glad you were able to enjoy it, nonetheless 🙂 I have yet to read the first book in the series, but I’m intrigued! It does look like quite the magical story with great characters.
    Wonderful review, hon!


  2. I ended up setting this one aside and I really should pick it up and give it another try. I think that Caraval was just so amazing that it was going to be hard to top it. I am glad that you did enjoy it despite the pacing. I think that I will wait for book 3 and give it another try then. Lovely review! 🙂
