I finally got around the reading Erin Morgenstern's 'The Night Circus' this year, and loved it. Afterwards, I was looking for another book to fill that magical-realism / fantasy void. Enter 'A Darker Shade of Magic'. This is parallel worlds story, taking place across 4 different 'versions' of London. My only gripe is that at the time of reading, I didn't know that this is the first book in a trilogy. The good thing is that the next book is slated to be out in February 2016, which is not too long of a wait. Yes, it's good, and I can't wait to delve more into it.
