Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems.

Scarlett has never left the tiny isle of Trisda, pining from afar for the wonder of Caraval, a once-a-year weeklong performance where the audience participates in the show.

Caraval is magic. Mystery. Adventure. And for Scarlett and her beloved sister, Tella, it represents freedom and an escape from their ruthless, abusive father. When the sisters' long-awaited invitations to Caraval finally arrive, it seems their dreams have come true. But no sooner have they arrived than Tella vanishes, kidnapped by the show's mastermind organiser, Legend.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. Nonetheless, she quickly becomes enmeshed in a dangerous game of love, magic and heartbreak. And whether it's real or not, she must find Tella before the game is over and her sister disappears forever.

    "A dash of magic"

    It was an enjoyable listen, treading the line between reality and fantasy very well.
    The performance wasn't bad, the only part that bothered me was her very airy screams which sent shivers down my back.

    "Interesting teen romance"

    The narrator was fantastic, she really made the book work through speech. Very heartfelt, enthusiastic and genuinely full of emotion.
    I really enjoyed the storyline even though it is aimed at the teenage variety it still has some guts to it and it's worth the listen.
    Plenty of twists and turns in the plot.

    And finally...... you should expect:

    Lots of smiling, sneering, grinning, smirking, twisting-of-the-lips, and also many more different descriptions of how the lips are able to form a smile - both benevolent and malevolent 😉😃

    "Enjoyable Read"

    I enjoyed the plot, characters and the setting. Caraval was intriguing and enjoyable - it's good to see the development of a few lead female characters. Can't wait for the next!

    "Incredible Debut!"

    From the voice acting to the story this is a solid 5 stars! One of those audibooks where the acting is so fantastic you wonder whether you'd have enjoyed it as much if you only read it. The story was equally exciting - the world was magical and colourful and full of twists and turns up to the very last page. A very enjoyable ride.

    "Confusingly brilliant"

    This book was my type of genre and I thoroughly recommend it as the story was so thrilling you didn't know what to believe! This mostly circulates the bonds of sisterhood and magic!

    "Very good book"

    At first I was worried that this was just going to be a night circus spin off but it's a fabulous story in its own right. It's very dark in places and it leave you feeling emotionally exhausted! I liked the narration and I would recommend this book. I hope book two comes out quickly as you get left with a bit of a cliffhanger

    "Nice start. Impossible to finish, causes severe eye rolling."

    Nice start and then it got cheesy and more cheesy and eventually unbearably cheesy. Probably ok for Spanish soap opera lovers.
