Young Adult Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

A Darker Shade of Magic is AMAZING!  This is my first read by Victoria Schwab and she completely swept me away with her new universe of alternate Londons. There's dark magic. Epic battles. Thievery and duels. Some very evil villains and villains that turn out to be not-so-evil. Political intrigue. And four AWESOME settings for all of you fans of world building. Each London is SO different according to the magic or lack of in each. The cast of characters is fantastic, and Kell and Lila will easily win you over. This is a not to be missed book!
