Listen to an audio excerpt of Stephanie Garber's bestselling novel, Caraval

Posted on

Stephanie Garber’s Caraval has been casting its spell on readers since it’s release and now readers can hear the tale in its new audioboook.

The debut novel—and one of EW’s most anticipated YA books of the year—follows Scarlett as she partakes in the titular Caraval, a magical five-night game where nothing is as it seems, and everything is to be questioned, in an effort to save her younger sister Tella from their cruel father. However, when her sister becomes the prize everyone is competing for, Scarlett decides to join forces with Julian, the mysterious sailor who helped them get to the “Isla de la Sueños,” where the game is played.

Below, you can listen to an excerpt from Chapter 15 in the audiobook, which sees Scarlett visit Nigel, a fortune teller of sorts, in her quest to get a clue about her sister’s whereabouts. But there’s just one catch—as is the case with Caraval—she can only ask three questions of the tattooed-seer.
