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 extravagent 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-and so to keep magic's balance, another London must fall...in V.E. Schwab's A Gathering of Shadows.

Professional reviews

"Michael Kramer and Kate Reading jointly narrate the sequel to A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC, for the most part to great success. The story is split between the two main characters. Four months have passed, and Kell and Lila have gone their separate ways, Kell returning to his duties as Antari and Lila joining the crew of the Night Spire. But when their paths unexpectedly cross again, debts must be paid. Occasionally there are awkward transitions between the narrators, and voices done by one don't always reflect those done by the other. Nonetheless, fans will especially enjoy the complex world building. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
