Review: A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab

You know when you have had a series on your tbr for some time and for some reason, or reasons, put off reading it?

That was me with this series.

And now I want to kick myself as it was utter brilliance. I’m so sad I’ve finished it. I’m really not ready to let the characters or the world go yet…….

Title: A Conjuring of Light

Author: VE Schwab

Witness the fate of beloved heroes – and enemies.

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.

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?

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.

And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.

That was fantastic!

The story picked up from book 2 and quickly grew to a crescendo of an utterly fabulous, marvellous tale! I couldnt have asked for more!

I fell in love with Kell, Lila and Rhy all over again.

‘Rhy watched his brother move toward her as naturally as if the world had simply tipped. For Kell, apparently, it had.’


I love this series and I am so sad to see it end here.
