Caraval by Stephanie Garber – Giveaway
This week I finished Caraval by Stephanie Garber and I must say that this is a book that really lives up to the hype! Without doubt a 4.5 star read for me – I loved it and my review will follow soon. In the meantime I would like to give my book away so that somebody else can enjoy it too. So, I’m giving away my ARC. If you’re interested in chucking your hat into the ring then please leave me a comment to that effect. The book is due out at the end of January 31st and the synopsis is below:
Whatever you’ve heard about Caraval, it doesn’t compare to the reality. It’s more than just a game or a performance. It’s the closest you’ll ever find to magic in this world . . .
Welcome, welcome to Caraval―Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.
Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.
But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.
Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.
Don’t forget to leave me a comment if you’re interested in taking part. As I said above, this is not the finished version but an advanced reader copy – and obviously it is used as I’ve read it! It’s in great condition though.
This is open to the UK only.
