Hey guys!! Hope you all had a great weekend! The weather here was crazy hot, so we spent most of our time outside ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, this weeks pick for me is a series that I have literally heard so many amazing things about, but I have never actually gotten to myself! I ordered the series at the end of last week from amazon (Thanks to the hubby buying me a gift card for books for our anniversary :-* ), so it should be here later this week!

a darker shade of magic

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

Published: February 24th 2015 by Tor books

Kell is one of the last Antariโ€”magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnesโ€”Red Londonโ€”and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see.

Unofficially, 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 consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.

After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they’ll first need to stay alive.

    I am so excited to see you’re starting this series Lauren. The Shades of Magic trilogy is an all-time favourite of mine and I’m sure you’ll love it as well. I think ordering all three books so you have them on hand ready to go is a good choice when it comes to Schwab’s books. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I can’t wait to see what you think of these! ๐Ÿ™‚
