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.

Soooooon!! More Kell and Lila and Rhy and magic! I can’t wait for more of all of the Londons!

  1. So excited for this book! My WoW is the last in a trilogy… which always makes me nervous because those are the books I take forever to read.

  2. I do still need to read the first in this series (I started the audiobook but I did not like the narration), but the excitement for this second book is absolutely contagious! 😀 I hope you get to read this one soon!

  3. I haven’t read this series yet, but I’ve been noticing it…the covers are definitely unique. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “JUST FALL”

  4. I still need to read the first book in this series, but I’ve heard amazing things about it.

    Mine’s a sequel as well.

  5. This book. Was. Amaaaaaaazing! I can’t say there is a ton of “Lila and Kell” but there is (obviously) a ton of Lila and a toooooooon of Kell. KELL. 😀 I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it, Cyn!

    Have a fabulous week. 🙂

    I need to read this author so bad. A lot of people love these books.

  8. Now that’s a cover! I have yet to read anything by Victoria Schwab. I have here all over my TBR and I should move these books up! Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂

  9. YAAAAS. That cover is beyond epic. I’d need it just for that, but we need more Kell!
