"From V.E. Schwab, the critically acclaimed author of Vicious, comes a new universe of daring adventure, thrilling power, and parallel Londons, beginning with A Darker Shade of Magic. Kell is one of the last Travelers--magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes--as such, he can choose where he lands. There's Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, ruled by a mad King George. Then there's Red London, where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London, ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne--a place where people fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. And once upon a time, there was Black London...but no one speaks of that now. Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between the royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see--a dangerous hobby, and one that has set him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations, first robs him, then saves him from a dangerous enemy, and then forces him to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure. But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive--and that is proving trickier than they hoped. "--… (mere)

This was a very enjoyable read. Well written. Great characters. A fascinating world. Start to finish had my attention and kept me engaged. So happy to see it's part of a series ... time to pick up book 2. ( )

Schwab is a master of creating unique fantasy elements with perfect world-building, both of which are fully displayed here. ( )

Loved it! Easy to follow world-building, and such a good piece of (urban) fiction all around. This got me back into reading during covid after a long draught. Such a great author too. ( )

4.5/5

This was my first V.E. Schwab book and I am thoroughly impressed. For a fantasy book, the world building was not extreme in length, but through clever storytelling and a fun (not-fully explained yet) magic system, the world filled out nicely. I loved the world hopping and descriptive imagery used to talk about three distinct, and yet very different places.

Beyond that, Kell and Lila are so fun. Lila is such a spitfire that I would totally want to adventure with just for the stories.

I can’t wait to read the next in the series! ( )

I started skimming around the halfway point. Apparently I'm just not that into high fantasy anymore. It's not you, book, it's me.

Why did I have this tagged as trans-related? Someone being weird about Lila? It's really, really not. There's bisexual innuendo about a side character but the context is "he's a slut." Meh. ( )

Such is the quandary when it comes to magic, that it is not an issue of strength but of balance. For too little power, and we become weak. Too much, and we become something else entirely. ---- Tieren Serense. head priest of London Sanctuary
