Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday - Banner - 2Holy moly, I haven’t done a Waiting on Wednesday since LAST YEAR. I’ve certainly missed doing them, so I’m going to continue them! I love sharing what books I’m excited about.

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine!

This week, I’m waiting on:

 

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Publisher: Tor Books

Release Date: February 24th, 2015

Pages: 400

Summary from Goodreads:

“Kell is one of the last Travelers—rare magicians who choose a parallel universe to visit.

Grey London is dirty, boring, lacks magic, ruled by mad King George. Red London is where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London is ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. People fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. Once there was Black London – but no one speaks of that now.

Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between royals of each London. Unofficially, Kell smuggles for those willing to pay for even a glimpse of a world they’ll never see. This dangerous hobby sets him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She robs him, saves him from a dangerous enemy, then forces him to another world for her ‘proper adventure’.

But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive — trickier than they hoped.”

DOES THIS AWESOME OR NOT? I haven’t read Victoria Schwab’s Vicious, but I did read and love The Archived. She’s known for unique books and this one seems to be no exception. I love anything with parallel worlds but with LONDON? (I love London, btw). COUNT ME IN.

 

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
