Before you enter the world of Caraval, you must remember that it’s all a game . . .

live with their ruthless father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a
marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the
legendary, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in
the show, are over.
Then, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation to
Caraval finally arrives. So, Tella enlists a mysterious sailor’s help
to whisk Scarlett away to this year’s show. But as soon as the trio
arrives, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend.
has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an
elaborate performance. But she nonetheless soon becomes enmeshed in a
game of love, heartbreak, and magic with her sister, with Legend, and
with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not,
she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a
dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister
disappears forever. (summary from Goodreads)
I definitely like the sound of this one. It has a The Night Circus feel to it, but darker. And I really like that cover. It's pretty with that galaxy like background.
