March 2016 Book Club Selection: A Gathering of Shadows

Apologies, but we had to skip our October selection (Locke & Key, Vol. 1). We will revisit it later in the year. The holidays proved to be extremely busy and once they were over, Project Fandom fell into one of our busiest TV seasons.

We are continuing the Book Club Podcast in March with our selection, A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. It’s the sequel to our September 2015 selection, A Darker Shade of Magic.

A Gathering of Shadows

From Amazon:

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 extravagent 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.

We’ll be reading this book throughout the month of March and recording our podcast discussion during the last weekend in March. We’ll put a post in our Book Club Podcast group on Facebook and our Facebook wall for feedback. We hope you’ll read along with us!
