A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ok. So this book was one hell of a surprise. I am the type of girl/reader that needs a romance in the story. Even in fantasy books, I need to have a romance and quite honestly I usually need the romance to be a huge element of the book. But a friend of mine said she couldn't be my friend anymore if I didn't read this book.. so I picked it up and I freaking loved it. Solid 4.5 read.
I'll admit that the beginning of the book was a bit slow and I wanted to put it down but that's really just because I had such a negative attitude going into it. So I'm not actually sure if the book was slow or if it was just because I went into it with the wrong attitude... But it picked up pretty early on. I am so intrigued by Kell and his magic and the whole world itself. And I do like lilah now. I didn't like her at first but she defiantly grew on me.
I have the 2nd and 3rd books on hold at my library and I can't freaking wait to see what happens next.
