Pressestimmen

"Fans of "A Darker Shade of Magic" will love its sequel, and fantasy fans who haven't yet read the first book in this series should hurry to catch up. --"Kirkus Reviews"
""
"""Full of magic, intrigue, adventure, deception, a bit of piracy...this will engage both adult and young adult fantasy readers alike. --"Booklist"

Praise for "A Darker Shade of Magic"
"""Compulsively readable...her characters make the book."--NPR

"[This has] all the hallmarks of a classic work of fantasy. Its plot is gripping. Its characters are memorable. [Its setting] is otherworldly yet believable. Schwab has given us a gem of a tale...This is a book to treasure."--Deborah Harkness, "New York Times" bestselling author of The All Souls trilogy

Inventive fantasy One for Neil Gaiman fans. "The Guardian "

Feels like a priceless object, brought from another, better world of fantasy books. Schwab's writing is engaging and vivid...kept me engrossed by its story every bit as much as I was fascinated by its complex, multilayered world. "io9.com on A Darker Shade of Magic"

London s appeal for Schwab seems to be its changeability, the way it can shift shades, from familiar to recognizable to weird to utterly alien. But for her, even the familiar has seeds of horror in it, grime and gloom and the weight of the past It s a multiple split-screen adventure, with an engaging hero/heroine pair at its center. "The Wall Street Journal on A Darker Shade of Magic"

Compulsively readable her characters make the book. Just as Kell has layers, Lila is a satisfyingly rich invention the stakes feel higher because Schwab takes the time to make a world worth getting lost in. "Darker Shade Of Magic" resolves its plot thoroughly, but still feels like it could be the seed of a lengthy series. With so many worlds on the map, there's plenty left to discover.

A Darker Shade of Magic is as twisty-turny, dark, and gorgeous as the (multiple) Londons it winds through--I loved it! "Steven Brust, author of the New York Times bestselling Vlad series"

A Darker Shade of Magic is smart, funny and sexy ... and Schwab keeps the excitement coming with roller-coaster plot twists that establish her as, perhaps, the natural successor to Diana Wynne Jones's contemporary fantasy crown. "The Independent (UK)""

Ich schreibe gerne detaillierte Rezensionen. In Ermangelung von Zeit resümiere ich: Großartig! Ich wünschte, es gäbe noch mehr Bücher, oder eine Verfilmung. Es stimmt, dass es ingesamt nur wenige Charaktere gibt und die Handlung sich über kurze Zeiträume erstreckt, d.h., es wird am Anfang erst mal viel das Setting beschrieben. Das fand ich aber gar nicht störend. Meisterhaft erzählt.

Ich bin nicht oft um Worte verlegen, besonders nicht, wenn ich meine Begeisterung mit anderen teilen möchte. Doch so oft ich während des Lesens versucht habe, meine Gefühle in Worte zu fassen, so weiß ich auch jetzt nicht annähernd, wie ich beschrieben soll, wie begeistert ich bin.

Aber ich werde es versuchen.

Die Geschichte von Kell, Holland und Lila geht weiter. In ACOL, dem dritten und letzten Band der ADSOM Reihe, finden all die losen Fäden der Geschichte ihr Ende. Oder zumindest ein Ende. Der Schattenkönig Osaron hat Kells London, das rote London als sein neues Reich auserkoren, und tut alles, um es sich zu eigen zu machen. Es zu regieren, es zu verändern, es zu verbessern. König zu sein. Gott zu sein. Menschen zerfallen zu Asche auf den Straßen, die Isle färbt sich schwarz und im Palast werden Kräfte gesammelt, Pläne geschmiedet, die gleichsam Leben und Tod bringen werden.

Dieses Buch hat alles. Hoffnung, Schmerz, Leid, Verlust, Erlösung, Stolz, Mut, Kraft, Leben und ... Magie. Ich habe selten in einem Buch so gelitten, so jubiliert, so mitgefiebert und mich selbst vergessen. Ich habe geweint, gelacht, den Atem angehalten und zischend ausgestoßen. Ich habe gehasst und habe mich lebendig gefühlt und alles dazwischen. Wir finden fantastische Märkte, neue Abenteuer, magische Artefakte und bezahlte Rechnungen. Dunkle Könige, die glauben Götter zu sein und junge Prinzen, die für ihr Königreich einstehen. Heldenmut, Übermut und Mut. In so vielen Facetten. Eine Geschichte wie ein Märchen, eine dunkle Erzählung und ein schmerzliches Schicksal.

Mit großer Spannung habe ich den 3. Teil der Geschichte um die vier Welten der Magie erwartet und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Das Buch bietet alles, was ich mir von einem Fantasy-Roman erhoffe: Glaubhaft entwickelte Charaktere, eine spannende und in sich stimmige Handlung mit überraschenden Wendungen und eine im wahrsten Sinn zauberhafte Welt, die den Leser in ihren Bann zieht.

Für alle, die Fantasy-Filme wie "Der Tag des Falken", "Willow" und "Der Sternenwanderer" lieben oder die "City of Bones"-Bücher verschlungen haben, kann ich "A Darker Shade of Magic" nur empfehlen.

Der erste Band wird im April 2017 auf deutsch erscheinen, aber die englische Fassung ist sehr gut lesbar und aufgrund des wundervollen Schreibstils der Autorin würde ich das Original der Übersetzung vorziehen.

Perfect conclusion to the series.
Schwab is an incredible talented writer, who's getting better and better with every new work she releases.
The Shades of Magic Series and especially A Conjuring of Light is yet her best work so far, and let me tell you, this last book was flawless. Perfect execution, highly literary pleasing, an emotional roller-coaster. Simply magical.
Always a delight to read Schwab's books!

This book was so, so good!!! Suspense, action, love, heartbreak, pain. The story had everything you want in a good book! I am sad that the story about Kell, Laila, and Rhy is over, but it was the perfect ending!
