Pequena biografia
Victoria (V. E.) Schwab (born July 7, 1987) is an American fantasy author best known for her 2013 novel Vicious, the Shades of Magic series, and for her children's and young adult fiction published under the name Victoria Schwab.

The Guardian called Vicious "a brilliant exploration of the superhero mythos and a riveting revenge thriller". It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which also named the novel one of its best books of 2013 for SF/Fantasy/Horror. The American Library Association's Reference and User Services Association likewise awarded it the top fantasy book in their 2014 Reading List. In late 2013 the rights for a film adaptation of Vicious were bought jointly by Story Mining & Supply Co and Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions.

In 2014 Schwab signed a two-book deal with Tor Books. Her next novel, A Darker Shade of Magic, was published in February 2015 and also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. "Vicious" and the Shades of Magic series are published by Tor Books. In 2017, she signed another book deal with Tor for the sequel to Vicious, Vengeful; a new trilogy set called “Threads of Power” in the same world as the Shades of Magic series; and a Blade-Runner inspired book called "Black Tabs."

In May 2018, Schwab gave the sixth annual Tolkien Lecture at Pembroke College, Oxford.



I highly recommend the audio book. the split narration by a woman and a man made it that much better. It gets one star less for the cliffhanger ending, but otherwise was excellent

This book was amazing. A perfect ending to a spectacular trilogy. An amazing magic system. A fun set of characters. And a wonderful story to round it all out. I literally can’t wait until I read this series again. Kell, Lila, Rhy, Alucard, Holland, all my friends now. I wish it didn’t have to end.

This was my first V.E. Schwab book and I am thoroughly impressed. For a fantasy book, the world building was not extreme in length, but through clever storytelling and a fun (not-fully explained yet) magic system, the world filled out nicely. I loved the world hopping and descriptive imagery used to talk about three distinct, and yet very different places.

Beyond that, Kell and Lila are so fun. Lila is such a spitfire that I would totally want to adventure with just for the stories.

I can’t wait to read the next in the series!

The second part of the Darker Shades series delivered. An absolutely incredible story to take us into the final part of the trilogy. Leaving us on a cliffhanger that will only lead to me starting the next book the same day I finished this one.

I’m here for it. Go Lila. Go Kell. Can’t wait for part 3.
