A shout went out behind him, and the clatter of hooves as a carriage reared. The man clutching the reins spat at him in a language he’d never heard, but the words were threaded together just like spells, and the letters unraveled and rewove in Osaron’s head, taking on a shape he knew.

“Get out of the way, you fool!”

Osaron narrowed his eyes, reaching for the horse’s reins.

I’m not a fool,” he said, “I am a god.”

His grip tightened on the leather straps.

And gods should be worshiped.”

V.E. Schwab’s A Conjuring of Light is one of the best series conclusions I’ve read. If you like magic and phenomenal world-building, be sure to pick up the Shades of Magic series. Read my full review hereCover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      The precarious equilibrium among four Londons has reached its breaking point. Once brimming with the red vivacity of magic, darkness casts a shadow over the Maresh Empire, leaving a space for another London to rise.
      Kell – once assumed to be the last surviving Antari – begins to waver under the pressure of competing loyalties. And in the wake of tragedy, can Arnes survive?
      Lila Bard, once a commonplace – but never common – thief, has survived and flourished through a series of magical trials. But now she must learn to control the magic, before it bleeds her dry. Meanwhile, the disgraced Captain Alucard Emery of the Night Spire collects his crew, attempting a race against time to acquire the impossible.
      And an ancient enemy returns to claim a crown while a fallen hero tries to save a world in decay.

  1. I got this book when it first came out and I still haven’t read it! I’m worried it’ll take as long as Gathering of Shadows did but at the same time I really do want to find out what happened!

    ‘Best series conclusion’ is high praise though and I’ll have to move it up my TBR!
