"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. "--… (mer)

Being of diminished mental capacity, it took three tries for me to catch on to the different Londons. After finally catching on, I really enjoyed this story. ( )

This book is my kind of jam. I hope the kids like it because I bought it for the library! ( )

I am in love with the worlds and characters Schwab creates. this was even better than Vicious imho.

The only thing that bothers me is the rapid conclusion which knocked a star off for seeming a little too pat. ( )

OMG so good. Can't wait to continue. Will write longer later. ( )

This is a hard book to review, as I actually preferred the fantastic world- building (multiple Londons!!) to the characters themselves. I almost feel this would have been better as a graphic novel, and not an actual book. The characters felt so flat to me, including the villains, and there was little- to- no character growth or development. Kell felt unremarkable and almost boring to me. Rhys was more interesting, but didn't have much to do in this story. And while I am happy to see a bi/ pan character represented, I don't feel the representation was positive (I dislike seeing bi characters portrayed as being overly promiscuous). And Lila.... I wish I had something good to say about the only prominent female character in the book, but to me, she was just as bad as Celaena Sardothien. They are actually pretty similar- dark pasts, quick to use violence, snarky/ arrogant, won't listen to others, "tough girl", little to no emotional development. All in all, I much prefer the author's Archived series- it's one of my favorites. ( )

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
