Nightrunner - Seregil and Alec

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab takes place in 4 parallel Londons, each with more or less magic.

Book 2 was my favourite. I know that some people don't like when the characters take a bit of a break from the general action in the middle of a trilogy, but it works well for me. On the other hand, Book 3 felt very long and I couldn't wait to be done with it, even though it was objectively good.

There's a minor m/m pairing with some great scenes. <3 Collapse ) Also, I would have liked more page time for them. It reminded me of how little Malec there turned out to be in The Mortal Instruments initial trilogy (I didn't read past it, so I'm not sure how that progressed).
