The entire rating system for books needs to be revisited now. 5 stars is not enough for any Victoria Schwab book, but if I looked up at the night sky it wouldn't hold enough stars to rate A Gathering of Shadows. I can't find a single fault in this book (I only want to throw it out the window because the set up for the next book is killer and I need it NOW). Everything is utter perfection. The world building is stellar. The writing is up there with Neil Gaiman for genius. Kell and Lila are my favourite characters from any book ever. Simply put, this series has rocketed past everything else I've ever read and is sitting firmly in the number one spot.
This one was much more about the character development of Kell, Rhy and Lila, and also the introduction of Alucard Emery. It did this through the 'Element Games' which are 1-1 battles by leading magicians in Red London, and this gave the book some great descriptions and fanfare.
The overarching story of the battle for control over the different Londons by black magic was interwoven, but wasn't the focus of the book. But of course the cliffhanger ending has ensured it will be the focus of book 3 :)
