V. E. Schwab


Ms. Schwab is appearing courtesy of Tor Publishing

Nashville resident V. E. Schwab's first adult novel, "Vicious,"debuted to critical praise and reader accolades. Schwab is the author of YA novels, including the acclaimed "The Near Witch," along with writing Middle Grade for Scholastic. The Independent calls Schwab “the natural successor to Diana Wynne Jones” and someone who has “an enviable, almost Gaiman-esque ability to switch between styles, genres, and tones.” "A Conjuring of Light" is the final entry in the Shades of Magic series.

From V.E. Schwab, the critically acclaimed author of Vicious, comes a new universe of daring adventure, thrilling power, and parallel Londons. Beginning with "A Darker Shade of Magic". Kell is one of the last Travelers--magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes--as such, he can choose where he lands. Londons fall and kingdoms rise while darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire, and the fraught balance of magic blossoms into dangerous territory while heroes struggle. The direct sequel to A Gathering of Shadows, and the final book in the Shades of Magic epic fantasy series, A Conjuring of Light sees the newly minted New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab reach a thrilling conclusion concerning the fate of beloved protagonists--and old foes.
