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.

I want this book the most. Seriously. I want it more than any other book right now. I have wanted it for months and months. So it has been breaking my heart a bit to see so many other people get ARCs of it, sobs, and not me. I just. I want this book the most. I need to know what happens. I need to know if Lila and Kell will happen. I need to know how it ends. Ahh. I want it so badly. Waiting for February is just torture, lol :) I'm so excited to read it. See my review of A Darker Shade of Magic here. And see my cover reveal post for A Gathering of Shadows here. <3 I'm just super excited for this book to come out.
