A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1)  by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab is a story about three London’s, Kell who can travel between words and Lila a girl who wants an adventure. Kell works for the King and Queen in Red London, which is his home, and is part of their family. This means he is best friends with Rhys who is the King and Queen’s only son. Kell gets into trouble and runs into Lila along the way. Lila decides to go on an adventure with Kell despite the chances that this particular adventure is most likely to end with death. I liked the world of the three London’s and loved Kell and Rhys, but at first I wasn’t a big fan of Lila. I didn’t like how in the moment her decisions were, but as the book continued and she grew as a person she started to grow on me. The writing style is very interesting, it is narrated in a very calm way which contrast a lot with what is sometime chaos that is happening in the book. I enjoyed reading this story and will definitely read the next one. I would recommend this book to people who liked Red Queen, Throne of Glass or who just like magic.
