A Gathering of Shadows (ADSOM#2)

A Gathering of Shadows Final


*out February 23th, 2016*

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 extravagent 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-and so to keep magic’s balance, another London must fall.

    I’ll second that, when is the next one coming out?! Just finished A Gathering of Shadows and can’t wait to see what happens next. Thank you buzzfeed, for your ridiculous lists and the one that brought me to these books!

    I was absolutely enthralled by this series, picked it up and devoured it. I couldn’t get enough of, not only these completely engaging characters, but also Schwab’s writing. I simply love the way her words read, I feel lifted into the magic. Every artifact, every character, every setting, every subtle force that animates as magic is completely real. I didn’t realize I was nearing the end of the second novel and swore audibly when my kindle suddenly cut out of the story, garnering some sideways glances on the subway. Any chance of a ballpark figure for the release of the third book? I will be watching and waiting for it. As far as I’m concerned, this author is a rare treasure, with the kind of voice I’m always looking for, but rarely ever find. i’m going to plumb her previous books while waiting for the next one and I am so glad I took a chance on reading her work.

    I’m waiting, not so patiently, for the next book in this series. Is there an estimated date?

    I was very lucky to see you in many panels @ Phoenix Comicon and you were one of my take-home authors (authors I met /learned about/added to my TBR shelf). I just finished ADSOM #2 and am now in line with the rest to wait. What does your writing schedule look like for #3?
