Let me tell you one thing I haven't like a series like this in a VERY LONG TIME.
I am not saying that I love Shade of Magic as much as Harry Potter but this is definitely ONE OF THE BEST FIRST BOOK IN A SERIES THAT I EVER READ!
wow. wow. wow.
I went through this book with just a notion: it was about travelling in different Londons.
No expectations beside my friend's voice "You need to read this. I devoured it. It is the best thing ever!" Well, let me tell you that she was right! I don't usually get into series/fantasy or anything in these days but this is so GOOD!
There are four London(s) and only Kell and Holland have the power to travel between them. Well, at least tree of them since the last one is like forbidden.. We will see!
I loved Kell and Lila so much. Also Rhy, oh God I loved him.
The characters and the worlds are so well definite and you can't avoid to fell in love with them or hate them. It's one or the other. And you can really see in your mind the three Londons.
I love so much V.E. Schwab writing!
“There’s Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,”
It's not that easy to set your mind in a new world but when a character need to learn about that with you. It is so much easier!
V.E. Schwab knows how to write a setting of an outstanding story. Her writing is so captivating and enchanting that it's impossible to put it down.
(I burned myself under the sun because of this book)
