“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. ”
AGOS was simply incredible. I don’t even know what else to say. The storyline was so entertaining and fun and dark. The more you read, the more intense it got. I couldn’t put it down, couldn’t stop thinking about it. It had everything i love. It is such a well-done fantasy and i absolutely LOVE the magic in the series. and that ending? A CLIFFHANGER THAT MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM. I need the next one, can’t believe i have to wait! it’s going to kill me. my favorite thing is the characters. Schwab’s characters are always interesting and real and so easy to love. I can’t pick my favorite because i LOVE them all. Kell is one of the best character ever. Sad, strong, poweful, loyal, he is everything i love and i just want him to have a happy ending. Please Victoria, give my baby a happy ending….ok? pretty please. And Rhy? I am so glad we got to see more of him and he is perfect. Lila? Lila is epic. She’s probably one of my favorite female character of all time. And we got pirate!! I’m really into pirates these days so i was really happy to meet Lila’s crew and her FANTASTIC new captain. ❤
okay, so what more can I say?? Read this series, NOW. it’s one of my favorite series at the moment. Writing this review was really hard because all i wanted to say was : Omg. Perfect. ahsjanssjs. ❤️
