Great Sequel

I think the best word to describe Legendary by Stephanie Garber is magical. If you liked Caraval, then it's almost guaranteed that you'll like Legendary. The language is about what CSM describes, but it does have a bit more sexual content than the first novel; especially since this one focuses on Scarlett's sister. There are a number of passionate kisses with some mention of "wanting more" (but nothing more than kissing happens in this book). Tella, the main character, drinks wine a couple of time throughout the novel. But overall this novel is utterly amazing and I highly recommend it; especially if you liked Caraval.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
