What if you met the love of your life - in a different world?

In a quiet English town in 1811, there lives a clergyman’s daughter. Kind-hearted but impoverished, lively but plain, Miss Sophy Landon faces a future with few prospects.

In the neighbouring realm of Aylfenhame, there lives Aubranael. Disfigured among the beauteous fae, his ruined face condemns him to a life lived alone.

Their meeting changes everything.

For Sophy will cross the border, and find a glimmer of a future beyond. Might there be a life, and a love, for her in the realm of the fae?

For Aubranael, a chance encounter with Miss Landon turns his world upside down. Armed with the temporary gift of beauty, can he hope to win her heart?

Pride and Prejudice meets Beauty and the Beast in this heart-warming tale of love, hope and magic.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab

"Addictive and immersive, A Gathering of Shadows cements this series as a must-read." —Entertainment Weekly, grade A

Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell's possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland's dying body through the rift, and into Black London.

In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games-an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries-a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again-and so to keep magic's balance, another London must fall...in V.E. Schwab's A Gathering of Shadows.
