Welcome, welcome to Finale, the third and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Caraval series!
Welcome, welcome to Caraval...all games must come to an end.
It’s been two months since the last Caraval concluded, two months since the Fates have been freed from an enchanted deck of cards, two months since Tella has seen Legend, and two months since Legend claimed the empire’s throne as his own. Now, Legend is preparing for his official coronation and Tella is determined to stop it. She believes her own mother, who still remains in an enchanted sleep, is the rightful heir to the throne.
Meanwhile, Scarlett has started a game of her own. She’s challenged Julian and her former fiancé, Count Nicolas d’Arcy, to a competition where the winner will receive her hand in marriage. Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. She is unaware that her mother’s past has put her in the greatest danger of all.
Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win...and those who will lose everything.

Having read and loved Caraval and Legendary I was reluctant to read Finale. Because it was so final and also meant that the series had come to an end. Something I was not ready for. I adored the previous two books and I did not think that anything could top them. But I was so wrong.

This was so different from the other two, at the beginning I felt like I was not taking part in a game. Then I quickly learnt that not all games are the same. And while it did not have the structure of the game, the chaos it caused was more addictive.

Along with the vivid descriptions, romantic relationships and a delightful adventure filled with twists and turns made Finale all the more harder to put down. Add to that all the plot threads finally coming together and you have a gripping read.

As always Tella was my favourite. She had more a get go attitude and was more willing to move forward and find out what is actually going on. Then there was Jacks with his wicked sense of humour. However, I was sad that Scarlett did not play a more pivotal role and was reduced to a more romantic character.

Finale was so final but by no means the end. It was addictive, intoxicating and thrilling. This is one game that you do not want to miss.
