A Gathering of Shadows

Trade Paperback, 352 pages
Titan Books, Ltd.
February 23, 2016
Fantasy, Historical Fiction,
Young Adult Fiction

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.

Why I'm waiting on this one!

I have found another series to love!!
 Oh,I'll never get tired of magic
and mayhem! Here we have a Red London
and a Black London.
Highly unusual and creative!
I think there's some alchemical  symbolism
involved in this novel, which
immediately reminds me of Harry Potter!
Definitely a MUST read!!
