Finished reading A GATHERING OF SHADOWS about a week ago, but I haven't had time to write a review because... well, life got in the way. :/ So I don't remember most of what I wanted to say, but here's what I do remember:

I loved AGOS, either just as much as A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC or maybe more. It's impossible to decide. The Essen Tasch (Elemental Games) was mind-blowingly action-packed and fun, and it was great to see the world of Red London outside of the Maresh empire. The new characters are great, and Lila's and Kell's expanded growth made this all the more rewarding. Plus, you learn so much more about the magic system in this book.

And that ending. HOLY CRAP, THAT ENDING. I was already planning on reading A CONJURING OF LIGHT as soon as I finished AGOS, and I'm so glad I did. Because if I had to wait for a year instead, I probably would have clawed my hair out. *ouch*

Schwab does an excellent job of hinting at their feelings towards one another without revealing specifics - but man, I can't wait for the truth to come out."
