Quotes & Awards

  • "Fans of A Darker Shade of Magic will love its sequel, and fantasy fans who haven't yet read the first book in this series should hurry to catch up. Kirkus Reviews

    "Full of magic, intrigue, adventure, deception, a bit of piracy...this will engage both adult and young adult fantasy readers alike.

  • [This has] all the hallmarks of a classic work of fantasy. Its plot is gripping. Its characters are memorable. [Its setting] is otherworldly yet believable. Schwab has given us a gem of a tale...This is a book to treasure. Deborah Harkness, New York Times bestselling author of The All Souls trilogy
  • Inventive fantasy…One for Neil Gaiman fans. The Guardian
  • Feels like a priceless object, brought from another, better world of fantasy books. Schwab's writing is engaging and vivid...kept me engrossed by its story every bit as much as I was fascinated by its complex, multilayered world. — on A Darker Shade of Magic
  • London’s appeal for Schwab seems to be its changeability, the way it can shift shades, from familiar to recognizable to weird to utterly alien. But for her, even the familiar has seeds of horror in it, grime and gloom and the weight of the past…It’s a multiple split-screen adventure, with an engaging hero/heroine pair at its center. —The Wall Street Journal on A Darker Shade of Magic
  • Compulsively readable…her characters make the book. Just as Kell has layers, Lila is a satisfyingly rich invention…the stakes feel higher because Schwab takes the time to make a world worth getting lost in. Darker Shade Of Magic resolves its plot thoroughly, but still feels like it could be the seed of a lengthy series. With so many worlds on the map, there's plenty left to discover. —NPR on A Darker Shade of Magic
  • A Darker Shade of Magic is as twisty-turny, dark, and gorgeous as the (multiple) Londons it winds through--I loved it! —Steven Brust, author of the New York Times bestselling Vlad series
  • A Darker Shade of Magic is smart, funny and sexy ... and Schwab keeps the excitement coming with roller-coaster plot twists that establish her as, perhaps, the natural successor to Diana Wynne Jones's contemporary fantasy crown. —The Independent (UK)

  • “Flawless prose…the bittersweet conclusion is a fitting one for a fantastic,emotionally rich series that redefines epic.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Desperate gambits, magical battles, and meaningful sacrifice make this a thrilling read.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Kate Reading and Michael Kramer return as dual narrators, Reading focusing primarily on Lila, and Kramer on Kel…Theirs is a solid interpretation. This gut-wrenching conclusion to an excellent series is recommended for listeners.”
