A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (Victoria Schwab)

Publish Date: February 23, 2016
Publisher: Tor

I recently finished the first book in the series, A Darker Shade of Magic. It was great! I can't wait to read more.

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.

  2. YES! I loved A Darker Shade of Magic and I can't wait for this next installment! I really enjoyed the world Schwab created, but I wish ADSOM had been more complex. I'm excited to read more about the parallel Londons, and see what Lila, Kell, and Rhy are up to. Great choice!

  5. V.E. Schwab books are still on TBR, I know I need to read them but somehow do not find the time lately :( I love how she keeps the covers similar within the series, makes so much sense! :)
