Review: A Darker Shade of Magic

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While the ideas behind this book were really interesting–unique magics, other worlds like but not like ours, a feisty female thief with nothing to lose–this story didn’t work for me nearly as much as I thought it would. Something was just missing. It felt like it had been edited into blandness; I could anticipate beats and twists well before they showed up.
I did like the story, but I don’t know, it felt like every other modern magic book out there. I just didn’t connect with it.
