A Darker Shade of Magic has been on my TBR for a long time, and similar to A Throne of Glass I was a wee bit worried that it wouldn’t live up to the hype. I’m very happy to say that it did, and I fell in love with the magical alternate Londons that V. E. Schwab conjured up. Even the harsh and unyielding world of White London captivated my interest. Everything about this book blew me away. The magic and world-building are magnificent, the characters are refreshing and interesting, and the story is bold, beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. It was no surprise to me that I quickly gobbled up the second book, the third book and then the graphic novel series as well.
