Book Review: Gathering of Shadows
Oh my, oh my, oh my ... preview chapters for A Gathering of Shadows! Friends, I am so excited ... here are my first thoughts, I can't wait to read and review the whole book!!
I received a Preview Excerpt from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. via GIPHY
After a momentary confusion because I couldn't remember how A Darker Shade of Magic had ended, I was swept up into world once again. Schwab doesn't disappoint while painting Red London as a backdrop for Lila and Kell. Lila is working toward her dream of having her own ship, she knows which one she wants, but it's unfortunately owned by someone else ... a pretty charming someone else. I'm once again captivated by Lila's fierceness, the girls' got spunk and tenacity and nothing she does on the page will ever be boring.
Kell's life is a little more challenging, when he isn't experiencing flashbacks of his time with Lila, he is living through the very real inconvenience of tethering his life to his brother's. In A Darker Shade of Magic I often felt like I just wanted to give Kell a hug, now that feeling has increased greatly.
I really love how there seems to be a bit of a role reversal in these books, Lila is the tough, no nonsense character and Kell the emotionally scarred, dedicated to his family, needs to be loved character. I love it! I can't wait for the rest of the book!!
