This isn't much a review but more of a talk-up. Where I talk up and hype (hopefully)books that I love!
This book guys... This book.... It's Magic.
Pure and simple. If you loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, then you will adore this book.

Summary: Before you enter the world of Caraval, you must remember that it’s all a game . . .

Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their ruthless father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the legendary, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

Then, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation to Caraval finally arrives. So, Tella enlists a mysterious sailor’s help to whisk Scarlett away to this year’s show. But as soon as the trio arrives, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nonetheless soon becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with her sister, with Legend, and 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.

I am so in love with this book. I'm so incredibly glad that it isn't just a stand alone. The magic and enchanting descriptions brought me back to that place where The Night Circus brought me. Where I could feel and smell and taste everything described with vivid detail. Stephanie's descriptions had me seriously swooning.
And I haven't even gotten into the characters yet.

Scarlett's character is very modest and withdrawn, but also strong and fierce in her love for her sister. The way she was written to balance those things was so well done, and her inner desires were things that I think anyone can relate to.
I tried making a collage, but I don't think it can do the imagery justice!
Julian is so swoony and hot hot hooooot. Every time him and Scarlette got close the sparks flew and I just wanted to push their faces together.
And the ending! The last page and that last letter had me internally screaming!
