Finale by Stephanie Garber | A Review


Finale by Stephanie Garber

Finale is the last book in the series of Craval written by Stephanie Garber. She is one of my favorite authors. I would read anything she writes. This final book is no less than epic, to be honest. I have been putting this review off for so long because of many reasons. Today I decided to finally write it. So let's dive right in. 

BLURB

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.

MY REVIEW
This final book of the series gives both of the sisters Tella and Scarlet an amazing ending. I won't spoil it for you and I won't discuss the story in detail. I will pick the things that made this final book amazing. The book is not short on magic and spells. There are many more. You will see some action, how these characters put their lives in danger and save the ones they love. We get to see all the Fates in action too. Many new and interesting characters are among them too. The story takes a slight dark turn before coming to an amazing ending.

On the whole, I love the ending of the story. Although I am sad to say goodbye to these characters, especially Legend. I would love to know the story from his point of view, how he started, and how he became Legend. I would recommend this series 100 percent. Because you gotta read it and feel those feelings. it's a 5-star read for me.
