Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a seventeen-year-old human girl, he can't seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he's entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prizefighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.
All Mallory knows of the Untamed City is what her elders have told her—that it's full of debauchery anddaimons looking to destroy her. But she knows she'sbeing pulled toward Kaleb with an emotion so fiercethat it's utterly foreign.
The two are forced apart by Mallory's overprotective witch father, stranded by necessity between warring populations that can't coexist. But when The City's ruler raises the stakes of the Carnival's prize, there's nothing Mallory, Kaleb, or Aya can do to stop the two worlds colliding. Mallory's about to discover her true identity—and stumble into a fate she'd die to avoid.
Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this tale of lush secrets, dark love, and the struggle to forge one's own destiny from the bestselling author of Wicked Lovely, Melissa Marr.

4.0 Carnival of Souls
Carnival of Souls is the first book I’ve read by Melissa Marr. I do have her Wicked Lovely series on my super long ‘to-read’ list, but figured I would give this one a whirl first.

I like the varying viewpoints throughout the book. The world building was extensive but not in an info dump kind of way. Its not without flaws but it was an enjoyable way to spend my commute. I'm eager (although not rabid) for the next installment as it ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.
