A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)
Jan 03, 2016
Moderately disappointing sequel to one of my favorite books of last year, A Darker Shade of Magic. Longer and more deliberately paced than its predecessor, A Gathering of Shadows finds Kell and Lila (eventually) thrown back into each other's paths when they both enter Red London's big Pro Bending tournament under false pretenses. The book gets off to a great start, especially with the passages of Lila's adventures on the high seas, and the climax delivers the goods. But the muddle in between... it just took me too long to get through as my interest wavered. I started and finished four other books while I trudged through this one. Pretty good book, not good enough for a better rec.
