REVIEW: Finale (Caraval #3) by Stephanie Garber


∴ Goodreads Amazon US Barnes & Noble Books-A-Million Book Depository


A love worth fighting for. A dream worth dying for. An ending worth waiting for.

It’s been two months since the Fates were freed from a deck of cards, two months since Legend claimed the throne for his own, and two months since Tella discovered the boy she fell in love with doesn’t really exist.

With lives, empires, and hearts hanging in the balance, Tella must decide if she’s going to trust Legend or a former enemy. After uncovering a secret that upends her life, Scarlett will need to do the impossible. And Legend has a choice to make that will forever change and define him.

Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun. There are no spectators this time—only those who will win, and those who will lose everything.

Welcome, welcome to Finale. All games must come to an end…


“Occasionally, there are minutes that get extra seconds. Moments so precious the universe stretches to make additional room for them.”

This book was just… WOW!!! Like I know that a lot of people were disappointed and I was really scared going into it that it wouldn’t live up to my expectations as a result. But I loved this book! It is definitely my favorite in the series by far. I couldn’t put it down and it exceeded all expectations.

I think the reason people didn’t like it was because this book was very character focused for a finale. Like this book was probably 70% characters and 30% plot. I for one loved that because I am a very character driven person. This book focuses a lot on Tella/Legend’s relationship and Scarlett/Julian’s and I loved that. I already adored these couples before this book but it only served to drive the point home. They are definitely some of my favorite couples ever.

I am so sad that this series is over. I drove through it and I don’t know what to do now. I’m just crossing my fingers that there will be a spin-off. It is heavily hinted throughout this book, especially that part where Tella had to promise to tell her future daughter’s secret. I know I would be down for any book this author writes from here on out, regardless of whether it is this universe or a different one.
