“A gathering of shadows” by V.E. Schwab book review

a gathering of shadows

When I started this book my husband and I had just fostered two kittens, that in the end we decided to keep. So it was very hectic. However I ended up getting through this book fairly quickly. It took me about 4 days. It’s a huge book so I considered this a accomplishment.

Plot: It was very smooth. For those of you who have read the first book you know how crazy it was seeing where things were in this book. There were some kinda slow parts, but for the most part it was very fast paced. I really loved how events from the first book had cause and effect in this book. It flowed extremely well which made the story even better.

Characters: There were some times when I was a little annoyed at Lila for putting herself in danger just because. But by the end I was like, “No she needed to do all this for herself.” This shows that she became stronger in this book, which means character development, which I’m a HUGE fan of! The same goes for Kel. I saw some major changes that I was proud of. Personally I didn’t see many flaws with how these characters were written.

Overall rating: I gave this a 5/5 stars.

Also…I want to talk about this world with other people! Are there any fans out there who want to talk about this series? I’ve also found that there isn’t much merch out there for these books. Does anybody know where I can find some merch based off these books?
