Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.


Why am I waiting?

I haven’t done my review on A Darker Shade of Magic  yet but it is an amazingly awesome book!!  Absolute perfection.  So of course I can’t wait to jump back into all the Londons.  I need to know….  things….  And did you see that cover???  Wow.


What are you waiting on?

      Christy at Christy’s Love of Books has taught me to make a wish list on Amazon and then check it for price drops. I think she gets emails when books on her list drop in price but I haven’t figured out the whole email thing. Now this is all dependent on how desperate you are for the first book 😉

      • Guess who just bought it!!! ME!!! I’m really curious and excited to start it. I’m hoping I’ll fall in love with her writing style :D. Good tip for Amazon! I’ll try that and see if I get notifications 😀

          I hope you fall in love, too!! Holy crap, I’m on the hook! If you don’t love Lila and love the story… I’ll do something… don’t know what but I’ll do something… 😉

      I”m so surprised you didn’t read the first one!! LOOK for it on audio. Hell, I’d give you my free audible credit if I could (can I?) I’ll write this one up sooner than planned 😉
