It’s time for First Impression Friday again! (FIF is a new weekly meme hosted by J.W. Martin ) This week we’re going to be talking about A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. It feels appropriate, given that I talked about A Darker Shade of Magic the last time I did FIF.
I only started A Gathering of Shadows yesterday, so I haven’t formed too many opinions yet. I will say that I loved the opening chapter and I still love Lila Bard!
Some predictions I’m making, based off the last book and the little bit I’ve read so far:
- Holland will come back to life – Either we’ll find out he wasn’t dead to begin with or someone will resurrect him
- Kell will be dealing with the emotional and physical effects of everything he and Lila experienced in the first book. (Maybe there’s some lingering dark magic still in his veins?)
- Kell and Lila will try to reach Black London and go on a badass pirate adventure
- Someone is still trying to manipulate Kell. (Who? I have no idea yet.)
Those are some pretty vague and uninspired predictions, but my brain is somewhat frazzled at the moment, so that’s the best I can offer. 🙂
