A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic - Victoria Schwab

I've got to tell you guys, I was a little disappointed at the end. Why?

Because I thought this was a stand alone book and I could not believe the author just ended it there. WTH? How could she? 

(searching the web for answers)

Oh..(small giggle) there it is. It says it's part of a series and the next book comes out in 2016.

yea! wait , 2016? Darn it!

 

Now I feel better and I can give it more stars.

 

Just look at the cover image.

 

 

It's fantasy with a bit of magic. 

 

"We can't all turn blood and whispers into weapons."

 

I loved that quote. I'm really looking forward to continuing this series/Trilogy?

 

*edit - I have to add that through out the book I kept thinking of the Gollum from Lord Of The rings. You know the whole "My Precious" thing. Once you read the book you'll understand what I mean.
