Every story has four parts the beginning the middle the almost ending and the true ending Unfortunately not everyone gets a true ending Most people give up at the part of the story where things are the worst when the situation feels hopeless but that is where hope is needed the most Only those who persevere can find their true endingThis is definitely a review I never thought I d be writing I ve been fangirling over the Caraval series since an arc landed in my lap in 2016 and I had no reason to believe that Finale would be any less enjoyable for me than Caraval 5 stars from me and Legendary 4 stars from me Unfortunately this one just didn t work for me the way that the other two did and instead of bashing this book I d like to take a few minutes to detail below WHY this book didn t work for me so that as a reader you can decide for yourself what to think I do encourage you if you re a fan of the series to pick this up for yourself and come to your own conclusion as my opinion is likely unpopular and in the minority Caution for minor spoilers below for the previous two books in the series Finale picks up in the wake of where Legendary left off Tella is still pining after Legend yet playing coy as he visits her in her dreams and Jacks is still in play so we have a bonafide love triangle up until the very end of this novel Unfortunately this was a big part of my problem with the book Donatella is such a strong female in the previous novels and I felt she was reduced to a simple love interest in this final installment Sure she does one big thing at the end of the book but for 999% of the novel there s a slow repetitive narrative of inner monologue and whiny dialogue that grated on me I ll admit that this could be because I m an adult and this is YA fiction but I also think other readers will pick up on this and have a hard time processing that this is the same adventurous heroine we came to love in the first two books At the same time Scarlett is mad at Julian because he has abandoned her for 6 weeks and in the meantime she has been exchanging letters with the real count her former fiance and their correspondence has resulted in Scarlet deciding to pit the two men against each other in yes another competitive love triangle Hooray for all of the love triangles Thankfully this one doesn t last as long as the one listed above and honestly felt like filler to make the book have a padded page count Scarlett does play an arguably important role in this installment and I do applaud Garber for attempting to give this girl a strong character arc but it felt a bit forced and politically correct I want strong female leads as much as the next person but a total personality change in the final book of a trilogy felt a little off for me I think my favorite part of this book though is that we finally get a deeper look into The Fates and while it wasn t as much as I d hoped for I found myself fully engaged in these sections I loved the history and folklore surrounding how they were created and what role they have played past and present in the shaping of their fantastical world I can t say too much about this but Finale does hinge it s plot on one of the fates and how this particular one ties Scarlett Tella and Paloma to the storyUnfortunately I found the ending to be rushed skimmed over and tidy beyond all reason which really works for some readers but is tough for me I m a masochistic reader and I want my characters to be cost something so when everyone shows up flawlessly alright with all their dreams come true I shake my old lady fist at the sky and wonder why I bothered reading this if no one had to survive any form of loss Maybe I was supposed to find this in PalomaParadise who let it be known ALSO HAD A LOVE TRIANGLE YES WE RE UP TO THREE NOW but her portion is so slim that I didn t really get a chance to know herI know it sounds like I didn t like any portion of this book but I truly did love the concept and still remain a huge fan of the seriesauthor Overall I found this particular installment just didn t flow with how the first two were written This could be because this is the first book that didn t have the suspenseful backing of the mystery of Legend s identity or a game of Caraval to keep the pace racing or maybe it s the fact that I m not a huge fan of love triangles slow burning repetitive descriptions and endings that so neat and tidy that they are beyond happily ever after I m definitely interested to see where the author chooses to take us next and I sincerely wish her all the best and success in her future endeavors 3 Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley

This thing is a disaster It s so poorly written and paced that I couldn t ever decide if Stephanie Garber had too many ideas or not enough for this bookLook I m perfectly willing to admit that I find Caraval to be barely tolerable and Legendary to be fine while everyone else in the world is bananas for them so I m probably the weird oneLet me give you an example of what every page of Finale felt like to meScarlettTella walk into the room and immediately notice and then describe to me the colors of the walls ceiling floor lamps picture frames spider in the corner tissue box 12 specks of dust random old shoe human skeleton liver fava beans Hannibal Lector s eyes and anything else you can possibly think of that s completely irrelevant to the plot And these lists of colors are always ALWAYS followed up with comparisons of the colors to something abstract typically in simile form but Garber did pass 6th grade ELA so she shows you she can use a metaphor too in a way that MAKES NO SENSE So the moldy old shoe is green and smells like heartbreak and rollercoaster wind Once ScarlettTella has finished with this annoying AF narration they will then spend 4 seconds on the conflict they ve discovered is currently happening in the room For this non spoilery review we re going to say they walked into a room full of poisonous snakes Uh oh Snakes And so ScarlettTella spend the next two whole sentences rounding up the snakes and tossing them out the window into the garden where the snakes happily slither away off into the sunset Action over Conflict over Back to generic YA pining and terrible similesNo buildup to anything No lasting conflict Things just happen randomly and then they re over Some obstacles come up just for the sake of wasting time as Garber never mentions them again and there s a GIANT one that she just never tied up I m only bitter about it because it was literally the only part of the book that got dangerously close to interesting The ending was anticlimactic It was another thing that was entirely too rushed for no apparent reason for it s not like she was tying up loose ends STILL BITTERI don t know Just about everyone else in the world loves these books And then there s loser me desperately trying for two books to understand the cool crowd and now just giving up entirely because a bitter and b this book put me in a 3 week reading slump which makes me even bitter Rude

I am conflictedThis book had so many flaws But also I kinda loved it But also maybe I didn t Honestly I have no idea wtf is going onWith a title like Finale I half expected this to be the greatest ending to a series ever written It also didn t help my overinflated expectations that I had recently read Legendary for the first time and loved it In the end it was all a pretty anticlimactic endFirst of all let it be known I am mostly here for these characters The plot is nice and all but gosh darn it these characters stress me and I love it Also let it be known that by characters I mostly mean Tella and Legend I am nothing if not here for that ship I think that s one of the main reasons I liked Legendary so much That and the fact that Tella is clearly the interesting sister at least she is to meScarlett is well Scarlett I didn t like her in Caraval and I didn t love her now She was a likable less annoying character here than in Caraval so there is that She still made some uestionable choices though but that s to be expectedOverall though I loved how each sister had their own missions and their own storylines where they could each shine and be the heroes of their own fates I always like seeing positive family relationships in YA especially between sistersA thing that I didn t much like in Caraval absolutely loved here and in Legendary was Garber s writing It was so beautiful So magical So enchanting The way Garber phrases things makes everything seem otherworldly and fairytalelike My one problem with the writing is that she likes to repeat things and its actually kind of annoying Characters would keep repeating things that happened only a few sentences ago as if the author was afraid we d miss the connection or forget But maybe that was just me and I m just a haterI loved everything else about the writing and the dialogue and everything about Tella and everything about Legend and basically everything of what we d gotten in Legendary It was some of the new things that I had a problem withNow let s talk about why I didn t absolutely love this book no matter how much I wanted to First of all this plot felt weaker than in the last two I think it was because unlike the previous books this one didn t focus on the mystery of Caraval and Legend Those things were interesting Those kept me engaged This new story with the fates was both interesting and weakThe concept of the fates was introduced in Legendary In this book the Fates are front and center with so much of the plot revolving around them This felt especially strange since the main villain is a fate that we see for the first time in this book It s never right to introduce your main villain the big bad in the final third of your series especially if we re supposed to be so terrified of himThis book was also a bit anticlimactic Big dramatic things happened without warning or build up and had very little impact other than being shocking for the moment and padding the runtime of the story Even the end sort of just happened without warning and without us seeing the true conseuences of all that had occurred Instead everything gets rushed at the end and is nicely wrapped up in a convenient bow and all inconvenient things get ignoredIt also felt like there was a lot of worldbuilding and yet there was actually no world building at all I loved the myths and the folklore of the fates But also I feel like we re never really given true context and explanation of how they work It felt like the world was never given a reason for being the way it was But I suppose that s just the way of magic and we re not supposed to uestion itOverall I liked it It was a decent book I think I just expected so much I expected a grand finale and I feel like I didn t get it I absolutely love Tella and Legend Scarlett and Julian were also good but I m biased and Tella and Legend will forever be number one The writing is beautiful The world is magical Despite my disappointment I still completely recommend this seriesAlso I m gonna call it and say that there s probably going to be a spinoff series or something Garber definitely left enough space to expand this world especially with that scene at the market If you ve read it you ll know what I m talking about Also I d be totally down for a new story about The FatesFollow Me Here Too My Blog Twitter Bloglovin Instagram Tumblr Pinterest
