Shades of Magic (series)

by V.E. Schwab

Jamie Says

VE builds complex and fascinating worlds that you can almost touch in your mind. Kell and Lila are brilliant characters to navigate four parallel Londons with.


Kell is one of the last Antari―magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once, Black. Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see. It's a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences.
