A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Set a few months after the first book we catch up on what’s been happening with our main characters. We also get a new POV in Alucard, and Rhy is also given much more screen time. Most of the book is set around a grand magical contest which is always fun to read about and it was interesting seeing how the magic could be used.

I did not like Lila in this book really at all, not sure how we are supposed to sympathise with her. Also one of the great things about the first book was seeing the different London’s whereas in this, nearly the whole book was spent in Red London. Be warned it ends on a cliffhanger, though luckily enough the third book is out. I still enjoyed this book even with some of the mild issues I mentioned.

4 stars out of 5
