A Darker Shade of Magic

A Darker Shade of Magic

by V.E. Schwab (Tor, 2015)

A Darker Shade final for Irene

On the one hand, a beguiling and assured piece of fantasy world-building; on the other, a rehashing of old character tropes and a denouement that does little justice to the scenario thus fashioned. Very readable but not as epic as perhaps conceptualised.
