first book of the new year
Just finished my first book of the new year. V.E. Schwab's "A Darker Shade of Magic" was recommended (can't remember what list included it, might have been BookBub) as one of the best fantasy/sci-fi books for 2015. It did not disappoint. Of course, the fact that the story takes place in multiple versions of London, more or less sealed the deal for me. Toss into the mix, various magics, a strong female protagonist, some derring-do action, and stir. It was a fun, quick, entertaining read. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
