One day I'll be in the media field working to change gender stereotypes or I'll be writing about strong female characters. Preferably both. At the same time. This girl has dreams.

So, a lot of people shelve this a young adult, however, Victoria has said that the books published under V.E. Schwab were her adult books and those published under Victoria Schwab were young adult. Just so there's no confusion.
I'd rather die on an adventure than live standing still.
I'm not used to reading adult fantasy. You can tell that this isn't written for a young adult audience, not because of it's content but because of the writing. I can't pinpoint what it is exactly but the flow to the writing is different. (It's not better, it's not a higher quality, don't even go there, it's just different.) It's like that saying when a 20-something realizes they're an adult in a situation so they look around for an adultier adult. This book is that adultier adult. It has its shit together.
This book left off on a note that left me aching for the next adventure but at the same time, I was pretty content if this had been a standalone novel. Thankfully, A Gathering of Shadows comes out soon so I can find out what trouble Lila got into and so I could drool over Kell's coat some more.
Have you read books by V.E. Schwab? Do you love her like I do? Also, if you're not following her on Twitter, you should.
