About the Author

Schwab is the author of YA novels, including the acclaimed The Near Witch, along with writing Middle Grade for Scholastic. The Independent calls Schwab "the natural successor to Diana Wynne Jones" and someone who has "an enviable, almost Gaiman-esque ability to switch between styles, genres, and tones."

RT Book Reviews Top Pick! Review"A Darker Shade of Magic has all the hallmarks of a classic work of fantasy. Schwab has given us a gem of a tale...This is a book to treasure."--Deborah Harkeness, New York Times bestselling author of the All Souls trilogy "Rich details illuminate every dimension of an extravagant city flooded with magic, and intriguing personalities evolve into complex characters...between [the characters those] the vivid setting, and the climactic cliffhanger, Schwab already has us anticipating the rest of the series." --Entertainment Weekly, Grade A, on A Gathering of Shadows"Compulsively readable...her characters make the book. Just as Kell has layers, Lila is a satisfyingly rich invention...the stakes feel higher because Schwab takes the time to make a world worth getting lost in. Darker Shade Of Magicresolves its plot thoroughly, but still feels like it could be the seed of a lengthy series. With so many worlds on the map, there's plenty left to discover." --NPR on A Darker Shade of Magic

"Schwab is a fantastic writer, and this book moves along quickly: it's an easy world to immerse oneself in, and the four Londons that we get to visit are a treat to behold: they're vibrant, interesting and detailed. The worldbuilding here is spectacular, and it's worth picking up the book for this alone. (Well, and the fantastic cover.)The series is set to be adapted into a television series, and both books will be perfect for that." --io9 on A Gathering of Shadows"This is how fantasy should be done." --Publishers Weekly
, starred review, on A Gathering of Shadows"Full of magic, intrigue, adventure, deception, a bit of piracy...this will engage both adult and young adult fantasy readers alike." --Booklist on A Gathering of Shadows
