Waiting On Wednesday .... Legendary

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is Legendary by Stephanie Garber

**Spoilers for Caraval**

Here is the Goodreads synopsis 
Stephanie Garber’s limitless imagination takes flight once more in the colorful, mesmerizing, and immersive sequel to the bestselling breakout debut Caraval

A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister's. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.

Welcome, welcome to Caraval...the games have only just begun.
I loved Stephanie's first novel, Caraval, and this (sort of) sequel sounds amazing. It feels like, at least from the description, that it is more of a connected companion novel. We're getting a new main character as Donatella takes centre stage, but it also references events that occur in book one.

I am soooo excited to return to this lush, magical, breathtaking world. Caraval swept me away and I cannot wait to fall back under its spell.

This one comes out just in time for summer which means ice cream and I some how suspect that Stephanie would approve of Legendary being enjoyed with some ice cream.

Expected release date - May 29, 2018
