Gr 8 Up—Donatella Dragna gets her turn in the spotlight in Garber's follow-up to Caraval. Tella is in a bind. She made a bargain with a mysterious figure and must find out Caraval master Legend's real name. Unfortunately, the only way to learn it is for her to win Caraval. The girls' missing mother, a set of possibly cursed cards, and the mysterious heir to the throne all play a part as Tella races to find clues, solve riddles, and figure out what's real and what's an illusion. While this second installment does not stand on its own—readers will need to be familiar with the characters, events, and world-building of the previous book to fully understand and appreciate this one—fans will be delighted to spend more time with Tella, Dante, and Scarlett, and to immerse themselves again into Garber's magical world. VERDICT Purchase where blockbuster fantasy and the previous volume is popular.—Stephanie Klose, Library Journal
