Download a Free Ebook of A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab Before June 16, 2018!

Each month, the eBook Club gives away a free sci-fi/fantasy ebook to club subscribers. We’re happy to announce that the pick for June 2018 is A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC by New York Times bestselling author V.E. Schwab, the first installment of her world-hopping “Shades of Magic” trilogy!

Kell is one of the last Antari—magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel Londons; Red, Grey, White, and, once upon a time, Black.

Kell was raised in Arnes—Red London—and officially serves the Maresh Empire as an ambassador, traveling between the frequent bloody regime changes in White London and the court of George III in the dullest of Londons, the one without any magic left to see. Grey London. Our London.

That’s where Kell runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations.

She robs him.

Then she saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.
