Witness the fate of beloved heroes – and enemies.
THE BALANCE OF POWER HAS FINALLY TIPPED…
The precarious equilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point. Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic, darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire, leaving a space for another London to rise.
WHO WILL CRUMBLE?
Kell – once assumed to be the last surviving Antari – begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive?
WHO WILL RISE?
Lila Bard, once a commonplace – but never common – thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.
WHO WILL TAKE CONTROL?
And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.
The darkness of the other Londons has bled through to Red London. Kell must focus on saving his brother and protecting his world. Lila has new magic that she has to learn how to control. Alucard returns to a place he thought was lost. They all must work with an unlikely ally to save London from the darkness that threatens to take over.
This was a fantastic conclusion to the Shades of Magic trilogy. It was action packed and fast paced. The short chapters made it easy to read.
Despite the fast pace, the beautiful, poetic writing made me want to savour it. There are so many great quotes in this series. My favourite one in this book was, “A myth without a voice is like a dandelion without a breath of wind. No way to spread the seeds.”
A Conjuring of Light is a wonderful book. I can’t wait for the story to continue in future books.
