REVIEW A Conjuring of LightA Conjuring of Light

CHARACTERS µ A Conjuring of Light RUMBLEKell once assumed to be the last surviving Antari begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties And in the wake of tragedy can Arnes surviveWHO WILL RISELila Bard once a commonplace but never common thief has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials But now she must le I don t know what to do with myself I am so completely overwhelmed with emotions and so far past blown away and now I m trying to write a review for one of the greatest stories ever told Love and loss he said are like a ship and the sea They rise together The we love the we have to lose But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love And what a sad world that would be You guys if you haven t picked up this series start it now As an aspiring author I pray to get even a sliver of Schwab or Bardugo s brilliance The writing was absolute perfection But really uick can we just focus on how freaking awesome Schwab is as a person I don t know if you ve seen her twitter but she s so open and honest about the struggles of being a writer not to mention hilarious but then she pumps out something like this book Wow Also I got to meet her at Yallfest I was in a wheelchair and I couldn t have gotten back to her signing but she actually took time to come out to me Victoria virtual hugAnyway since I m barely able to even function I m still a blubbering mess after finishing this book I m just going to summarize a mess of wordsstatements below and hope it makes senseBe ready because the moment you open this book you ll hit the ground running It picks up literally seconds where the second left off and it doesn t slow down The first 20 30% was non stop craziness and it was wonderful and painful and entirely too stressful and I found myself screaming and laughing and I don t even know you guys I don t even knowThe only slow moments in this ENTIRE book were the flashbacks and there were lots of little ones all throughout They were very core to character development and I actually really enjoyed them I literally cannot even begin to talk about the plot I m going to refrain from giving away any details But I ll say this I really liked the first book though I felt it was slow at times I LOVED the second as it took the series to a whole new level of emotional turmoil This one just blew me away The pacing was perfect as I said VERY fast paced only slowing during flash backs and full of surprises and stress I was so attached to everyone even the side characters that I was literally racing through the pages so now I m going to have to go back and reread for details I ve highlighted about 30 uotes I ve cried and laughed and screamed and now I m completely exhausted We don t choose what we are but we choose what we do To summarize here s what you can expect1 Blood Repeatedly Like half of this book is fight scenes I feel like2 New and interesting POVs3 Kiss your heart goodbye4 Tears Lots5 Stress and anxiety because you ll love EVERYONE6 Pirate ships Magic New magical abilities 7 Brilliance On every pageSo all I have left is to sit here and proclaim my love for the castLila is her usual BAMF self She had so many witty one liners and she was endless entertainment I love love loved her contribution to the story she kinda has a character arc but kinda doesn t She s learned to let people in but at the same time she s so true to herself Some of the highlights for me were obviously moments with Kell but also with Alucard Ok brb need to cry because of all the emotional beautifulness Kell I literally cannot Precious smol must be protected at all costs This guy The second book made me feel for him SO much He s so selfless that even Rhy gives him crap about being so perfect Oh my gosh Kell and Rhy strongest brother

CHARACTERS µ A Conjuring of Light Witness the fate of beloved heroes and enemiesTHE BALANCE OF POWER HAS FINALLY TIPPEDThe precarious euilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire leaving a space for another London to riseWHO WILL C Psst A new video is up all about the bad books I ve read this year Now that you know that this one made the cut check out the Worst Books of 2019 video to see what other ones made the cut The Actual Review Rhy I messed with magic Nearly killed everyone Actually it s still killing everyoneLila Alucard Respect your limitationsLila Kell I ve literally used magic my entire life and you ve been at it for what two months This will literally kill you Lila That s it I m calling mom Schwab By the power of author I grant thee to do the ability to do anything you want sans conseuences And you are also retroactively ueer because I believe in inclusivity JK Rowling high five The Actual Review Life isn t made of choices it s made of trades Some are good some are bad but they all have a cost The Four Londons have existed somewhat in harmony for the past few years but all that is about to changeThe four realms Black London White London Red London and Grey London are like alternate realities each with their own spin on magic They can be accessed by Antari humans with special magic who create doors to access the other realms Years ago in Black London a piece of black magic became sentient and soon infected their entire world White and Red London sealed their doors and thought they were safeThey did not know that the creature behind Black London s downfall was still alive and awaiting its chanceWhen Holland an Antari from White London was sacrificed was thrown into what was left of Black London he was unwittingly sacrificed to the sentient magic He became subject to the whims of an insane and insatiable magic For the first time in years black magic will walk between the Londons Death comes for us all said Holland evenly I would simply have mine mean something Meanwhile Kell and Lila must find a way to save their London and all the Londons before it is too late She was a thief a runaway a pirate a magicianShe was fierce and powerful and terrifyingShe was still a mysteryAnd he loved her Talk about a whirlwindUltimately this was a good third novel though the I think on itthe less I seem to like it I m going to cover what I liked Tragic Hero Holland and Lila gate 2019 What I liked aka I was entertained but not loving it It had plenty of action adventure and mayhem I legitimately did not know what direction this will take nor who would die throughout this novel That kept it fresh and exciting for me But it did seem to play fast and loose some of the book s original magic rules which was somewhat annoying Putting that aside I did really enjoy the plotThe way the black London magic crept across the world crazy cool Plus I liked how the big bad was not a traditional villain He had no reasoning no logic no overarching goal He wanted to do some bad thingsand he did themAnd the characters Rhys Oh I was so happy for him and his beau such a perfect couple It was wonderful to have such a strong couple in the bookI did enjoy how Lila and Kell really found their stride in this novel the way they played off each other warmed my heart But they seemed like really good friends in their banter rather than lovers I mean Kell does say he loves her a million times but we do not see the love develop However there were a few things that took me out of the novel Tragic Hero Holland aka you ve had a shtty life Let me sht on it some By no exaggeration the treatment of Holland was so awful that it bordered on comedyThe guy has been to hell and back all for what Everyone to sht on him apparently Kell even knew that Holland had no control over himself while soul bound to the evil twins and yet Kell let everyone make Holland s life miserable Kell pushed a dying Holland into Black London to die then gets all prissy when the half dead guy makes a deal to save his entire country Everyone s hatred seemed nonsensical There s justified prejudice and there s over the top It could be my tinfoil hat but it felt like the author was throwing the book at Holland so she could check every box from the Misunderstood Tragic Hero TM trope Lila gate 2019 aka mom plays favorites This book was Lila s personal sandbox She could pretty much do anything she wanted because reasons Logically Lila s powers should ve been the weakest she s a Grey Londoner she hasn t practiced very long etc but she continuously showed everyone up It felt a little like the author loved Lila so much that she gave her a free pass to do whatever Plus there was the Instagram post where the author said that Lila was actually nonbinary but because of the settingtime period Lila would not have known the right words or been aware of such a thing So she wasn tbut still totally waskind ofAnd to that I sayExcuse me Am I missing something Did anybody else pick up any hint that Lila was potentially a ueer character other than her deep distrust of dresses and feminine activities which to be honest those really aren t true clues to anyone s gender identityThe author who just got done bragging that Lila learned a whole new language became a captain and forced herself to wield magic was seemingly roadblocked from being her genderfluid self by a few vocab terms REALLLLLLLY The girl who became a magic pirate couldn t grasp the concept of being gender fluid The Magic Pirate Also correct me if I m wrong but isn t being genderfluid than skin deep As in it is the core of one s being As in if you truly were you d feel it all the time or at least a feeling of something being not rightmissing not just have an AHA moment once someone explains the concept as Schwab impliesI am of the belief that if you are going to include a character from an underrepresented community especially one that is practically the underrepresented of the underrepresented communities then you owe it to them to do just that Not just say that it would ve totally happened if Lila was in X situation but it didn t because of Y artistic reasons Overall This one was enjoyable It dragged at times but picked up at the 400 pg mark The characters were uniue and mostly believable I won t be returning for a reread but I ll definitely be checking out Schwab s other seriesAudiobook CommentsWell read though Lila s voice did grate on my nerves
