Kell is one of the last Antari magicians with a rare coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red Grey White and once upon a time BlackKell was raised in Arnes Red London and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador traveling between the freuent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of YAadult Fantasy There isn't just one London There are in fact four cities sharing that name and geographic location each in a very different plane of existence The novel takes place in the early 1800s when magical travel between the different Londons has been severely restricted Long ago the place called Black London underwent a massive magical accident a sort of implosion during which the forces of magic consumed the humans who tried to wield it Since then the doors between the worlds have been sealed The only ones who can travel from world to world are the blood magicians known as Travellers When we first meet the traveler Kell he has arrived in Grey London in our own un magical world to deliver a message from his own sovereigns of Red London to King George III and the Prince Regent The existence of other Londons we learn is a closely guarded secret that only the rulers know We follow Kell's travels from Grey London to his home the magical Red London to the sinister world of White London ruled by a pair of despot siblings who make Vlad the Impaler look like a nice guy At the same time we meet a young thief of Grey London named Lila Bard whose life becomes entwined with Kell's accidentally as they are both plunged into a plot to reawaken magic and tear down the walls between the worldsPhew Just describing the book makes it seem complicated and it is an intricate world that VE Schwab has created but it's not as confusing as it seems I highly recommend checking it out if you like fantasy The idea of four separate Londons is fascinating and like all the best fantasies this novel makes its system of magic seem absolutely plausible Me I hope I never get stuck in White London That place is YIKES Having said that I would definitely sign up for adventures with Kell and Lila

review A Darker Shade of Magic

George III in the dullest of Londons the one without any magic left to seeUnofficially Kell is a smuggler servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see It's a defiant hobby with dangerous conseuences which Kell is now seeing firsthandAfter an exchange goes awry Kell escapes to I'm so glad I decided to re read this before carrying on with the trilogy There were SO many things I had forgotten Can't wait to get to book two VE Schwab does it again It amazes me how she continues to get better and better with each book she puts out into the world I need the seuel ASAP
