Love the series. Didn’t love the product handling.

I first read Caraval in November of 2021 after picking up a paperback copy. I went on to binge the entire series and absolutely adored it! So much so that I jumped right into Once Upon A Broken Heart immediately after. If I was rating on the series alone it’d be 5 stars without question.
I decided to upgrade to the hardcover set though and while the price was fair there was some minor damage to the books and quite a bit of damage to the box it came in (which I’m sure is what caused damage to the books).
If you’re going to upsell a box set and call it new then the product received should look new, not like it’s been kicked around. It’s a beautiful box but it’s in such bad shape it’s hardly useable and that’s a shame. I really wish major distributors would take better care of their books.
