Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE FRAGILE THREADS OF POWER by V.E. Schwab


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE FRAGILE THREADS OF POWER by V.E. Schwab. Shades of Magic is one of my all time favorite fantasy series so I’m beyond excited that V.E. Schwab is taking us back to that world for another adventure and that we’ll be meeting a new Antari!


by Tor Books



From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, and set in the world of A Darker Shade of Magic, V. E. Schwab opens a new door into perilous adventure and tangled schemes with The Fragile Threads of Power.

Once, there were four worlds, nestled like pages in a book, each pulsing with fantastical power, and connected by a single city: London. Until the magic grew too fast, and forced the worlds to seal the doors between them in a desperate gamble to protect their own. The few magicians who could still open the doors grew more rare as time passed and now, only three Antari are known in recent memory―Kell Maresh of Red London, Delilah Bard of Grey London, and Holland Vosijk, of White London.

But barely a glimpse of them have been seen in the last seven years―and a new Antari named Kosika has appeared in White London, taking the throne in Holland’s absence. The young queen is willing to feed her city with blood, including her own―but her growing religious fervor has the potential to drown them instead.

And back in Red London, King Rhy Maresh is threatened by a rising rebellion, one determined to correct the balance of power by razing the throne entirely.

Amidst this tapestry of old friends and new enemies, a girl with an unusual magical ability comes into possession of a device that could change the fate of all four worlds.

Her name is Tes, and she’s the only one who can bring them together―or unravel it all.

    I’ve only read one book in this series – although I enjoyed the world and thought the premise was original and enjoyable. So I must get hold of more! Thank you for sharing:)).

    I won a copy of this on Goodreads. Going to be stating it as soon as I finish my current read Good Bad Girl 🙂

    I’ve never read Schwab but sounds fun- I played a version of the Bookish Games once that used characters from her series and it was blast.
