Author: V. E. Schwab
Date of Publication: February 21st, 2017
Witness the fate of beloved heroes – and enemies.
THE BALANCE OF POWER HAS FINALLY TIPPED…
The precarious equilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point. Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic, darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire, leaving a space for another London to rise.
WHO WILL CRUMBLE?
Kell – once assumed to be the last surviving Antari – begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive?
WHO WILL RISE?
Lila Bard, once a commonplace – but never common – thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.
WHO WILL TAKE CONTROL?
And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.
I feel like I have been fiddling around with this book forever! I really really loved book one, but I feel like both these other books didn’t live up to that first book. This book, however, was still pretty cool, though!
My thing was that I don’t mind multiple POV’s, but there were just too many here, and sometimes it would take a while to get back to the one that I wanted. I also felt the book could have been cut down because it was really long which is fine because ACOWAR was long, but it was a bit much here.
Romances however were on point! Kell and Lila I love love love! Magic was awesome as it always is. Rhy and Alucard… Yes!!!!!!!
Overall a unique series, but I still love Schwab’s This Savage Song so much more. That book owns my heart!
