book A Darker Shade of Magic

A Darker Shade of MagicEscapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard a cut purse with lofty aspirations She first robs him then saves him from a deadly enemy and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventureNow perilous magic is afoot and treachery lurks at every turn To save all of the worlds they'll first need to stay aliv An Overhyped Shade of MediocreBefore you jump down my throat I didn’t hate this novel as much as I felt let down by it Let me explain it’s been hyped up everywhere and when that happens expectations tend to run very high Think back to when you were a kid and wanted something for your birthday so much and were so sure that you were going to get it; and even if you got plenty of nice things the fact that you didn’t get the one thing you wanted made you disappointed That’s the same feeling I got from this bookFurther I felt like there was a lot of pandering going on here Currently YA books are trying their darnedest to be inclusive which I personally think is a great step in modern storytelling However I don’t care for having one dimensional characters just for the sake of faux representation Prince Rhy is well a prince but he’s also bipanomnisexual and that’s about it Sure he is our MC’s best friendadopted brother and serves some purpose in the story but he’s mostly a token character since there is nothing to him Our second case of pandering comes from our female MC Lila She’s a tough female protagonist with a dark past because we’ve never seen that before eye roll Okay I get that audiences need strong female characters and are sick of Mary Sues but Lila reads like a stock character She’s tepid and boring just like the writingThis book took me longer to finish than I would have thought simply because the writing is so dry and flat On nearly every page I pendulated from interested to bored and back again like a metronome The story itself is captivating in parts but the actual prose has no life There's no heart in it at all and you don't care about the characters so when they die it's no big deal It sits there listless and says Our main character is Kell and he is oh so original You guys he’s “one of the last travelers—magicians with a rare coveted ability” Are there any protagonists that don’t have rare gifts any Wait though he has a completely black eye and does blood magic and there is only one other blood magician in the story so of course they have to face off Not only that the MacGuffin in this book is a stone split in half and wouldn’t you know it The other half of this stone belongs to the villain I have never heard of a hero and villain having some sort of weird twin connection between their magical foci before sarcasmBack to Lila view spoilerI think it’s pretty clear that Lila is an Antari because she’s missing an eye that probably would have been black like Kell’s and there are strong hints that she has magic inside her plus she can also travel worlds hide spoiler
