"From V.E. Schwab, the critically acclaimed author of Vicious, comes a new universe of daring adventure, thrilling power, and parallel Londons, beginning with A Darker Shade of Magic. Kell is one of the last Travelers--magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes--as such, he can choose where he lands. There's Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, ruled by a mad King George. Then there's Red London, where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London, ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne--a place where people fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. And once upon a time, there was Black London...but no one speaks of that now. Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between the royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see--a dangerous hobby, and one that has set him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations, first robs him, then saves him from a dangerous enemy, and then forces him to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure. But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive--and that is proving trickier than they hoped.

This is my first book from this author and I must say she writes very well. Her imagination is superb and she reminds me of Neil Gaiman. ( )

An fast-paced, thrilling start to the series, looking forward to reading the next one! ( )

Great characters, great story, great pacing. Everything about this book was superb! Except for the fact that I wanted more! I can't wait to see where this series goes (I'm assuming there are more books in store). ( )

I really enjoyed this book.

Kell and Lila are facinating characters with flaws and issues. I like that there isn't any romance in this book. Maybe there will be some in the future (they did have a very nice chemestry), but this story really focuses on Kell and Lila getting to know each other and working together. Which made their relationship seem more realistic and I enjoyed their back and forth bantering quite a lot.

The world with the different Londons are compelling and there is a lot of travelling between them. They really feel like they belong too three (or four) completely different worlds. When it comes to the rest of the world we learn very little and I didn't mind that, there is more than enough world building happening trying to distinguish the parallell worlds.

The plot was also interesting with dark magic and evil sorcerers that want more power. This first book feels a bit like an ending, so if you try it out and don't know if you want to continue, then it's probably ok to stop here. ( )

This is the third time I have read this book and I still absolutely love everything about it! The characters, the world, and the magic are spell binding and gripping. I love coming back to this series. Now, onto book 2 once more. ( )

Such is the quandary when it comes to magic, that it is not an issue of strength but of balance. For too little power, and we become weak. Too much, and we become something else entirely. ---- Tieren Serense. head priest of London Sanctuary
