Waiting on Wednesday: A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, my most anticipated release is:

A Gathering of Shadows (A Darker Shade of Magic #2) by V. E. Schwab
Expected Publication: February 23rd, 2016

Warning: Spoilers for A Darker Shade of Magic!

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.

The book cover has been revealed last night and a lot of book bloggers have been getting extremely hyped up over it! I don't blame him - after all, V. E. Schwab is slowly becoming a renowned author. The fact that she's writing her books while working through her Graduate degree... who wouldn't be impressed? Nonetheless... I'm so excited!! I still need to pick up her books eventually... 

V. E. Schwab is the critically acclaimed author of Vicious, which was a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2013, a Booklist Noteable Reading List winner, and the American Library Association Top Pick for 2014. She is also the author of a number of novels for young adults, including The Near Witch, The Archived, and The Unbound.
