When I pitched the title of Finale to my editor, who had yet to read the story, I said that this book is like a lit firework; it explodes early on as everyone battles themselves and others to conquer all their nightmares, so that they can create new dreams. [...] And my personal hope is that this book has all the magic of Caraval, along with all the heartbreak readers expect in a finale.

Stephanie Garber on Finale

Finale by Stephanie Garber is an upcoming book in the Caraval series. It is expected to be released on May 7, 2019.


A love worth fighting for.

A dream worth dying for.

An ending worth waiting for.

It’s been two months since the Fates were freed from a deck of cards, two months since Legend claimed the throne for his own, and two months since Tella discovered the boy she fell in love with doesn’t really exist.

With lives, empires, and hearts hanging in the balance, Tella must decide if she’s going to trust Legend—or a former enemy. After uncovering a secret that upends her life, Scarlett will need to do the impossible. And Legend has a choice to make that will forever change and define him.

Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win, and those who will lose everything.

Welcome, welcome to Finale. All games must come to an end…

Sneak Peeks Edit

  • "His voice had softened, and she might have called it sweet, but there was nothing sweet about the way he smiled. It was a smile that promised she'd enjoy this new game, even as she lost it."
  • " 'Why are you here ?'

To save the world. To stop a monster. To see you. "

  • " 'I'm the villain, even in my own story.' "
  • " ' You look miserable .'

'It's not polite to tell that to a girl.'

'I didn't come here to be polite. I'm here because you wanted me' "
