I cried when I finished this book and I’m not even the crying type. I might tear up but that’s as far as I usually go. Until this book… It’s not just out of sadness but also every other type of emotion possible. Reading this book was completely overwhelming- an emotional roller coaster. Honestly, there were quite a few times I’d considered stopping because this book is the darkest book I’ve ever read and will read, but I literally COULDN’T. I read all 476 pages in just two days (which is a lot for me).

So I haven’t been blogging for long. It hasn’t even been a month for me. I started on July 30th this year so I had plenty of time to accumulate books into my never-ending TBR list. Since there are so many, I’m going to narrow it down into Top Ten Standalones That Have Been on My TBR Before I Started Blogging.
A Gathering of Shadows starts off four months from where the first book stopped. The Danes have really messed things up in Red London and now all the blame is on poor Kell. The king and the queen are ever wary of him as are the people and things are a bit difficult for him, especially considering the bond that now ties his life to Rhy’s. The bond is also taking its toll on Rhy, despite his attempt at distraction with organizing the Elemental game that is to be hosted in Red London….
So this books starts off in Wallachia where Lada is born to Vlad Dracul and his weak young wife, Vailissa. He is immediately dismayed that his wife bore him a girl and hatefully names her Ladislav….
