And so it ends. Where [b:A Gathering of Shadows|20764879|A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic, #2)|V.E. Schwab|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1429627728l/20764879._SY75_.jpg|43242915] was the bright(ish) interlude, [b:A Conjuring of Light|29939230|A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic, #3)|V.E. Schwab|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1464017758l/29939230._SY75_.jpg|44752519] goes dark quick. The magic that killed Black London is free in Red London and trying it's damnedest to ... take over the world? It's a little unclear. I guess a piece of sentient magic gets a pass on the 'evil for the sake of being evil' card.

Characterwise, we don't really have anyone know, although we get a lot more of Rhy who actually gets to explore being given a literal second chance at life and what it means to be king. Speaking of which, King Maxim and Queen Emira had a lot going for them. I ... just wish they were developed a bit more. Rhy's relationship with Alucard gets a fair bit more time. It's complicated (in a good way) and well done. I wish them the best.

Holland actually grew quite a lot as well. He's really the surprise star of the books, given that he was the big bad back in [b:A Darker Shade of Magic|22055262|A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)|V.E. Schwab|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1400322851l/22055262._SY75_.jpg|40098252] and... well... died back then. Antari are tough.

Unfortunately, Lila remains just as bad-ass and quirky as she was [b:A Darker Shade of Magic|22055262|A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)|V.E. Schwab|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1400322851l/22055262._SY75_.jpg|40098252]. What? Unfortunately? Yup. She doesn't really seem to have changed much. She's still a thief, which is fun, but now she's also far more powerful than she should be and capable of doing just about anything. She's still by far my favorite character of these books, it's just starting to grate.


She was a thief, a runaway, a pirate, a magician.
She was fierce, and powerful, and terrifying.
She was still a mystery.
And he loved her.


Kell doesn't really change much either. And the one big question we've been going through the entire series--where did he come from... he literally destroys the answer as given. It's more 'real' but rather unsatisfying.

And that brings us to Osaron. As a big bad... he's sort of one dimensional. He wants to make everything like Black London (which turned out so well for him last time). Despite turning everyone into magic zombies and raising a giant palace out of... magic, we pretty much exactly how this is all played out. And he doesn't have much character.


Anoshe was a word for strangers in the street, and lovers between meetings, for parents and children, friends and family. It softened the blow of leaving. Eased the strain of parting. A careful nod to the certainty of today, the mystery of tomorrow. When a friend left, with little chance of seeing home, they said anoshe. When a loved one was dying, they said anoshe. When corpses were burned, bodies given back to the earth and souls to the stream, those left grieving said anoshe.

Anoshe brought solace. And hope. And the strength to let go.


Quite a series. I'm glad to have read it.

Anoshe. ( )

adult fantasy fiction (epic magic battles, incidental LGBQ diversity). Great conclusion to a great series. As always, looking forward to reading more from this author. ( )

A Conjuring of Light is the third and final novel in the Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab [aka Victoria Schwab].

Plot:
The magic tournament is over, but the troubles for Lila, Kell, Rhy and Alucard are not. When Osaron crosses over from White London to Red London, he becomes a threat to not only the four of them, but to all of London. It seems that the only person who can help them stop him is Holland. But whether Holland will do so, is another question entirely.

The Shades of Magic trilogy so far has been a mediocre thing for me – good enough to keep reading it, not good enough to make me really excited. A Conjuring of Light is probably the best novel in the trilogy and kept me turning the pages.

This is the third (and possibly not the final?) book in the Shades of Magic trilogy. What a way to end this! I feel everything wrapped up nicely and left room for more if wanted or left alone. I will definitely read this trilogy again. This book picks right up where the last one left us, as if you never picked up another book. The excitement never wavered. The tempo of this book starts quick and continues with few slow parts for a breather. This helps if you are reading this back to back.

Our characters Kell, Lila, Rhy, Holland and Alucard continue to grow in this book. The continued trials they face either for themselves and or the group and or kingdom. King Maxim and Queen Emira have taken a bigger and important role in this novel for both their kingdom and son (s). There are other secondary characters who also help with the growth of Rhy specifically. The antagonist (villain) of the trilogy, Osaron, also grew in this book. His power and curious mind turned him dangerous. Osaron is a character who you question on how they will stop him. You know there is a weakness, you as a reader can feel it and see it, with the clues given, but how would the characters use it against him. I believe the characters who grew the most were Rhy and Osaron. I feel as this book shifted and focused on Rhy and Osaron.

This time we head more to sea and explore a pirate’s black market, the Farase Stras. Black markets are not new, but this one was interesting and a neat idea on how it was function. I enjoyed the market always moving and to find the coordinates you needed a certain map. I would have loved to explore this market more, but given what was going on, we could not. The way you had to arrive by either being excepted or denied and the way you leave with only one item, made this market also intriguing. I can see why it would be hard for a thief.

I would recommend this book and trilogy to anyone who loves fantasy. ( )

THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I couldn't have asked for anything more in a concluding book. The plot was fast paced and intriguing without taking away from the character growth. I loved seeing all of the pieces of the story fall together, and the movement of the whole story toward the climax. 500 stars to this one!! ( )
