"A Darker Shade of Magic has all the hallmarks of a classic work of
fantasy. Its plot is gripping. Its characters are memorable. Its setting
in four parallel, powerful Londons is otherworldly yet believable.
Schwab has given us a gem of a tale that is original in its premise and
compelling in its execution. This is a book to treasure." --Deborah
