Publisher Description

Witness the fate of beloved heroes and notorious foes in the heart-stopping conclusion to V.E. Schwab’s New York Times bestselling Shades of Magic trilogy.

*Kirkus' Best Fiction of 2017*

As darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire, the once precarious balance of power among the four Londons has reached its breaking point.

In the wake of tragedy, Kell—once assumed to be the last surviving Antari—begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. Lila Bard, once a commonplace—but never common—thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry.

An ancient enemy returns to claim a city while a fallen hero tries to save a kingdom in decay. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.

Thumbs Up“Of the three, this book requires the most of the reader’s attention because there is so much going on. The chapters are well divided by the characters, though there many! I found this book flowed like water, quick at some times and slow and steady at other times. It is an enjoyable read, with many details—more plotting and scheming here than action like other two books. All the same I loved it and thought it was a nice finish to this trilogy.”
