I finished this book a while ago and I did not want to let go of it- especially considering it was the last part of a brilliant series. V. E. Schwab is a literal genius for writing this book. The slight ways in which character development is shown is marvellous. The characters are absolutely lovable, and the writing techniques and language used is also very well done.

This one is definitely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Dying doesn‘t help the dead. It doesn‘t find the lost. A lot of people have fallen. But some of us are still standing. So if you want to give up, walk out that curtain. I won‘t stop you. I won‘t save you again. But if you want to put your second chance to better use, come with me.

Today I ventured to the mall for the first time since covid hit! 😱 There are no bookstores in this one, sadly, but I did get to eat chicken teriyaki at the food court while reading the book I brought! 😋💕📚 Does anyone else enjoy reading in public places like this? I found it very calming somehow!

jen_the_scribe I love a food court meal and a good book! 2mo
Dragon I like to eat at the local mall and read my book- especially in the summer as I don‘t have air conditioning 💚🐉 2mo
Branwen @jen_the_scribe @Dragon I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! 😄💕 2mo

Sometimes you just come across a passage while reading that stops you in your tracks, emotionally. This one hits hard, but in such a beautiful way! ???

“Scars are not shameful,“ said Ojka, ““not unless you let them be.“ The knight straightened. “If you do not wear them, they will wear you.“ And with that, she'd walked away.

2✨ I was having trouble focusing. There was a lot of death and magic. I feel this had more of a reflection on trying to listen to it. There was too much going on in the book and my life as I was trying to finish this series. Maybe I‘ll try this series again one day since I think my dislike for this book was more related to circumstances of the end of the school year.

I loved this thrilling ending to a wonderful series. The writing was absolutely stunning and had me tearing up more than once. I loved the characters and finishing this series is somewhat bittersweet since it feels like I‘m saying goodbye to them. “Anoshe,” as they would say, “until another day.” Seriously though, I loved this entire series and there couldn‘t have been a better ending!

Lila Bard was a force to be reckoned with. Wether her hands were filled with knives or fire, her voice low and coaxing or lined with steel, she seemed to hold the world in her hands.
Maybe she did.
After all, she‘d already taken two Londons as her own.
She was a thief, a runaway, a pirate, a magician.
She was fierce, and powerful, and terrifying.
She was still a mystery.
And he loved her.

“Welcome to the Night Spire,” she said, flashing a smile like a knife. “You can call me Captain Bard.”

“What do I do?” he asked, the question so much bigger than the words.
Tieren smiled a soft, inward smile and shrugged in his usual way. “Leave it be. The blossom will crumble, the stem and leaves, too. That‘s what they‘re for. Acina strengthen the soil, so that other things can grow.”

In myths, the hero survives.
The evil is vanquished.
The world is set right.
Sometimes there are celebrations, and sometimes there are funerals.
The dead are buried. The living move on.
Nothing changes.
Everything changes.
This is a myth.
This is not a myth.

He‘s spent a year trying to free the barb from his chest before he realized he didn‘t want to. Or maybe, he couldn‘t. Another year before he realized she was injured, too.

People spoke of love as if it were an arrow. A thing that flew quick, and always found it‘s mark. They spoke of it as if it were a pleasant thing, but Maxim had taken an arrow once, and knew it for what it was: excruciating.
He had never wanted to fall in love, never wanted to welcome that pain, would have happily faked an arrow‘s bite.
And then he met Emira.

Myths do not happen all at once.
They do not spring forth whole into the world. They form slowly, rolled between the hands of time until their edges smooth, until the saying of the story gives enough weight to the words-to the memories-to keep them rolling on their own.

Every time she took a life, she saw Lenos.
Lenos, who‘d feared her.
Lenos, who‘d been kind despite that.
Lenos, who‘d called her a portent, a sign of change.
Lenos, who‘d seen her, before she knew to recognize herself.

“Life is chaos. Time is order.”

“Life,” he said, since he didn‘t believe in luck-it was the absence of design, and if Lenos believed one thing, it was that everything had an order, a reason. Sometimes you were too close to see it, sometimes too far away, but it was there.

Her heart was beating hard against her ribs, some primal part of her saying run, and she was running, just not away. She was tired of running away. So she was running to Kell.
And he caught her.

quote
Lovelylottereader
A Conjuring of Light | Victoria Schwab

Then his arms were folding around her, and in that small gesture, she understood, felt it down in her bones, that draw, not the electric pulse of power but the thing beneath it, the weight she'd never understood. In a world where everything rocked and swayed and fell away, this was solid ground.
Safe.

“I have never known what to make of you. Not since the day we met. And it terrifies me. You terrify me.“ He cupped her face in both hands. “And the idea of you walking away again, vanishing from my life, that terrifies me most of all.“

“I don't suppose you'd believe me if I said I was distracted by your charm?“
Lila let out a low, sharp laugh. “My knives, perhaps. My quick fingers But not my charm.“
“Wit, then. Power.“
She flashed a wicked smile. “Go on.“
“I was distracted by everything about you, Lila. I still am. You're maddening, infuriating, incredible.“

“You think this is a bad idea,“ he said. It wasn't a question. But it sparked something in Lila, rekindled the fire in her eyes and ignited a grin.
“Without a doubt.“
“Then why are you smiling?“
“Because,“ she said, “bad ideas are my favorite kind.“
