“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”
This book was so dark, seriously, sometimes I just had to put it down to get my act together. I feared so much for these worlds and people, but it was epic! The beginning was a bit slow, but then the second half just blew me away.
The writing style of this book felt a bit objective, you didn’t really get inside the head of the characters. You got some thoughts every now and then but I don’t feel like I know the characters yet. However, that didn’t stop me from loving Lila. She was such an awesome character: a badass female thief that just wanted to go on adventures and be a pirate. I cannot wait for more of her. I also really liked Kell but nothing can top Lila!
“I’m not going to die,” she said. “Not till I’ve seen it.”
Her smile widened. “Everything.”
I am giving this book 5 stars because it was epic and adventurous and very dark. At the time this review goes up I’m probably already reading A Gathering of Shadows, and after that I’m definitely going to read A Conjuring of Light! I would definitely recommend this if you like fantasy and magic and dark books!

I am now making it my mission to read all of VE Schwab's books immediately.
I've been let down by fantasy lately, so I think that's part of the reason I left this one alone for so long. But this was amazing in more ways than I can tell you. The writing, plot, the magical world, and especially the characters all had me reeling.
Our story is set in London - and multiple Londons, parallel universe-type stuff. I could try to explain it here, but Kell does a better job in the book. Just know that it's not confusing in any way and is unique amongst today's fantasy world.
Speaking of Kell... goodness, I loved him! So much. He's the good guy, but he also has some shades of grey inside him. I loved that he wasn't just 100% perfect, because no one is. His added magical abilities made him special and part of the Royal Family in his home, 'Red London.' There is only one other person in the world with his abilities, so to say he's rare and special is an understatement. And though he's revered and loved, he still feels alone since he's not quite part of the family.
We meet Lila Bard and I have to say that she may be my favorite fantasy heroine ever. That's a ballsy statement, I know. But she has balls of steel and then some. She's tough as nails, ready for adventure, and looking for something more. I adored her from the second she was introduced. Her wit, humor, and all-around badassery won me over. And she only continued to impress me as the story went on.
The action is fast-paced and there were many moments when I wanted to scream or throw my Kindle to the ground. The villains are wonderfully written, so be prepared to feel the hate in your bones. The last 20% or so really take off, and my heart was pounding as I waited for resolution. I can't wait to see what's in store for Kell and company in A Gathering of Shadows.
If you love books centered on magic, I urge to give this a try. This is the best start to a fantasy series I've read in a long time.
Come for the gorgeous prose, stay for the twisty plots, exquisite world building, and characters so complex you'll forget they aren't real. As a reader, I loved it. As a writer, I want to pick it apart into pieces and try to figure out how she did it. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
1. The characters - these characters where not bad at all, they were good (except for the prince) but there was something about the way she writes them that made me not really get into them and truly care about them. It's weird!
2. The whole jumping world function (one little part) - Especially at the beginning it was like when Kai jumped worlds I had to go back and trace where he was and then go back to where jumped to because it was disorienting ( I was like wait wasnt he in Grey London, then how, what, why, you know what I don't even know). And to be fair that was the 2 problems I picked up on but you are definitely gonna have to read this book to see if you like it or not.
