Lila at times a bit over the top really balanced out the seriousness and coldness of Kell. The two of them working together had a really natural feel - as evidenced by their free-flowing banter. I was not myself. Audiobook Comments Read by Steven Crossley - and he did a great job. This was a rather well-read audiobook.
I do wish he would've had more emotion when it came to his characters but then again, Kell is supposed to be a little stand-offish. Dec 23, C. Drews rated it it was amazing Shelves: read , read , epic-fantasy , 5-star , young-adult , best-of , audio-books , reread. I love Kell. I love his frown. I love his love for his brother. I love his smol fragile beginnings of a relationship with Lila. I love his bloody magic. I love his dark side. I may need to go lie down or else faceplant into A Gathering of Shadows for the second time.
I over-hyped to myself??? Despite already having read and adored Vicious. So clearly I am the most pathetic of grapefruit fiends. It was violent and magicy and bloody and incredibly written Like seriously, I want one. I told you Also I absolutely adore VE Schwab's writing style!! Like it's brisk and too the point. It doesn't fluff around.

Gah, I am in love with the world building skills. I actually never had any "Huh, I don't get it? Which is a big deal for me. I don't get it. And the characters?! Shriek loudly, I tell you. Like, literally perfect. A little bit tragic and lost and longing She's a thief and so snarky She really would. And she's wondrous. My favourite thing of ever. I mean, I DID love him. My favourite kind of character, tbh For this I am sad. But tragic? Like I felt really bad for him even as he was doing terrible evil things. He was enough of a villain to be hated, and enough of a victim to make me whisper a small "oh dear" and feel sad for him.
One thing wasn't perfect. But this is purely me? And I dare say most people wouldn't have this problem: but I found the book very predictable. It was really weird.
I have this slight suspicion that it's sort of how I would put together a story? I am like a toddler with a crayon compared to her. I would choose all the plot directions she went in, which made me sort of know they were going down? Also pleeeeeeeeeeease tell me I'm not alone in catching the potential-plot-twist-about-Lila?!?!? She is so totally an Antari. Clearly someone cut out her eye as a kid, right???
There was a kiss. That's ship material there.

I also really liked how it didn't spare the characters. And like everyone's moral compasses were soooo twisted. I'm like such a violent little squid. I know. But omg, so much blood. Also it gives me the shivers when they cut themselves for spells.
So basically this book is perfect. And I'm actually glad I only read it just now??
Because I can go buy A Gathering of Shadows straight away! I love the characters, I am so sucked in by the writing, and I can't get enough of the epic dialogue and the perfect plot twists and the bloody spectacular brilliantness. You can all say "I told you so" but I will smush cake in your face and glare.
