"Waiting On" Wednesday #5: A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

Go ahead, mock me. This book, A Gathering of Shadows doesn't even come out this year. Yes... it comes out in 2016 and not until the end of February - February 23, 2016 to be exact. So yeah, how's that for "waiting on"!!!

But just know that the explorative look at a seedier, darker London is just too cool for me not to be ecstatic knowing there's more coming and that they've kept a cohesive design so that the covers look like collectibles rather than book dustjackets makes my obsessive hobbyist heart happy.






DETAILS:
  • Title: A Gathering of Shadows
  • Publisher: Tor Books
  • Publishing date: February 23, 2016
  • Author(s): V. E. Schwab
  • Series: A Darker Shade of Magic

SYNOPSIS:
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.

    1. That's what I think... just they did a spectacular job both here and in the UK with the covers that I sort of want both.
