A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

Updated: Dec 30, 2020

Kell is one of the last of a dying breed of magic users called Antari, those who use blood magic to travel between worlds. Serving as ambassador to the throne of Red London, one of four different Londons in four different worlds, he also has a rebellious hobby with dangerous effects: smuggling items between the two worlds. Following Kell's journey to dispose of a dangerous magic object from a destroyed and sealed off Black London, including meeting and teaming up with a bold and stubborn Grey London thief, Lila Bard, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat with it's perilous, magic filled adventure. While Kell's asexuality is only implied through the story, it seems an important part of his personality, serving as a foil to his pansexual brother. A great dark fantasy story full of magic, danger, and suspense.
