Publisher Description

Witness the fate of beloved heroes and notorious foes in the heart-stopping conclusion to V.E. Schwab’s New York Times bestselling Shades of Magic trilogy.

*Kirkus' Best Fiction of 2017*

As darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire, the once precarious balance of power among the four Londons has reached its breaking point.

In the wake of tragedy, Kell—once assumed to be the last surviving Antari—begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. Lila Bard, once a commonplace—but never common—thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry.

An ancient enemy returns to claim a city while a fallen hero tries to save a kingdom in decay. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.

Slightly Smiling Face“I will admit, the 2nd book is still, by far, my favorite of the trilogy but I loved this. It read surprisingly fast for such a long book. However, it might have had to do with the sheer amount of things happening. I think I would have liked if it slowed down a little at moments, it felt like a lot sometimes, but yet it kept me going. Sitting on the edge of my seat. I’m really intrigued to see what VE Schwabs is going to do when she releases the next book, bringing us back into this world.”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This is the perfect ending to a trilogy. Had such great and well written characters. Had moments of me staring at the page in shock , tearing up and cheering. Definitely good for fans of fantasy!”
