Cover Reveal: A Gathering of Shadows (A Darker Shade of Magic #2)

A Gathering of Shadows (A Darker Shade of Magic #2)

I am so excited for this book since I fell in love with A Darker Shade of Magic. I only learned today that the second book is entitled A Gathering of Shadows and it’s so intriguing. I thought A Darker Shade of Magic is a stand-alone book. I remember wishing that it was a series. Well, see? Wishes do come true! Haha! I just hope Leah from Tor could give me an ARC of this too. Yay! The released of the book was scheduled February of 2016 so that’s still a looong wait. I wonder when Tor would give out ARCs. 😀

Here’s the blurb first:

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.
In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.
But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.

“Everything I could have hoped to see from Schwab—the danger, magic, and style all dialed up to the highest setting. I was a huge fan of the cover for A Darker Shade of Magic—the sartorial sharpness reflected into cartographic intrigue, the intensity of the stark color palette, and, of course, a lone figure inviting attention. We wanted to keep this general concept, but recast it, as the world is not what it seemed at the end of ADSOM. In A Gathering of Shadows, there is (of course) an ominous cloud on the horizon—and Delilah Bard (my personal favorite character of the world) is ready to fight.”
