"Schwab is a fantastic writer, and this book moves along quickly: it s an easy world to immerse oneself in, and the four Londons that we get to visit are a treat to behold: they re vibrant, interesting and detailed. The worldbuilding here is spectacular, and it s worth picking up the book for this alone. (Well, and the fantastic cover.)The series is set to be adapted into a television series, and both books will be perfect for that."--"io9 "on" A Gathering of Shadows"

"This is how fantasy should be done. --"Publishers Weekly," starred review on" A Gathering of Shadows"

"Rich details illuminate every dimension of an extravagant city flooded with magic, and intriguing personalities evolve into complex characters...between [the characters those] the vivid setting, and the climactic cliffhanger, Schwab already has us anticipating the rest of the series."--"Entertainment Weekly, "Grade A on" A Gathering of Shadows"
""
"Compulsively readable her characters make the book. Just as Kell has layers, Lila is a satisfyingly rich invention the stakes feel higher because Schwab takes the time to make a world worth getting lost in. "Darker Shade Of Magic" resolves its plot thoroughly, but still feels like it could be the seed of a lengthy series. With so many worlds on the map, there's plenty left to discover."

Product Description

Kell is plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, he is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila. As Red London prepares for the Element Games - an extravagant international competition of magic - a certain pirate ship draws closer. But another London is coming back to life, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning. Black London has risen again - and so to keep magic's balance, another London must fall.
