Witness the fate of beloved heroes and notorious foes in the heart-stopping conclusion to V.E. Schwab’s New York Times bestselling Shades of Magic trilogy.

*Kirkus' Best Fiction of 2017*

As darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire, the once precarious balance of power among the four Londons has reached its breaking point.

In the wake of tragedy, Kell—once assumed to be the last surviving Antari—begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. 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.

An ancient enemy returns to claim a city while a fallen hero tries to save a kingdom in decay. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 20, 2017 – The superb conclusion to Schwab s Shades of Magic trilogy picks up shortly after the events in 2016 s A Gathering of Shadows. A ball is in full swing in Red London (one of several parallel Londons). The partiers are celebrating the conclusion of the Essen Tasch, a competition where the most powerful magicians (called Antari) fight each other for the win, but a shadow falls upon the kingdom. Osaron, a being made of powerful magic, wants to take over Red London and make it his own, but first, he ll need a vessel, and only an Antari will do. Prince Rhy of Red London; his brother, Kell; the thief and Antari Lila Bard; the tormented Holland; and Rhy s lover, the pirate Alucard, must band together to defeat the relentless, evil Osaron. Lila is still coming to terms with her own wild, untamed power. Kell must do what he can to save the day without hurting Rhy, to whom he s magically bound. Holland still reels from the torture he endured in White London, and Alucard aches for Rhy but must stay focused on battling Osaron. Flawless prose provides the canvas against which Schwab s complex characters battle, love, and die, and the bittersweet conclusion is a fitting one for a fantastic, emotionally rich series that redefines epic.

Customer Reviews

Best author, best series

Broadened my horizons for books of all kinds, still marveling and fantasying of the world of Londons and other.

Loved it!

Full of action and everything I wanted from the characters. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Wonderfully written book!

The story did not stop. It gained momentum, kept going, and then some. Characters are fleshed out even more. Ugh. Just. Everything I could've hoped for, and so much more.
