I was very impressed with A Darker Shade of Magic and hoped that book two would continue on the same level. What I didn’t expect was for it to blow it completely out of the water. What do you do when a book is already 5 stars and the next one is even better? It’s like GCSEs where you have A and then A*. Well, considering this is 5 star +!
It did take a little while to get there for me though because the place where the book starts wasn’t really that interesting to me, and it took me a while to warm up to those characters. Eventually though when everything worked back everyone ended up back in London for the Element Games I was fully engaged. So many twists and turns! I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat, biting fingernails and at some points wanting to hide under my duvet.
