"I LOVE this series. It isn't perfect by any means but it is whimsical and fun. I don't want to give too much away but if you want to just get swept away by something reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland I think it is worth reading. The mystery aspect does feel like it wasn't planned prior to the book being written but instead like Garber was questioning and discovering the story as they wrote. I think it works in Caraval and is the reason I love this book so much"
