A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Title:  A Darker Shade of Magic

Author: V.E. Schwab

Review: To be completely honest this was a cover buy. I had no idea what the book was about, but I loved the cover, so I ordered A Darker Shade of Magic and read it after letting it sit on the shelf until a family trip. Oh. My. Gosh. I freaking loved it. The characters are wonderful and complex, with just the right amount of irritating stubbornness. The world and concept is unusual for this genre (at least in my experience), and V.E. Schwab is now on my top five list. If you like fantasy and alternate realities, then I highly suggest it. I hope that, if you do pick it up, you enjoy it as much as I did, and still do.
