Have you ever picked up a book and thought, “What in the hell have I gotten myself into?” Only to finish said book and think, “How can I ever forget this book?” That’s what happened here. 

Victoria Schwab is a magical genius, weaving this multidimensional world where magic can mean life or death. I loved her world building, turning a city we know into a world we wouldn’t recognize. The characters are clever and sneaky and scary and charming. I loved the prose, the rhythm, the jumping from one POV to the other. I loved the dankness I felt. I loved it all. 

Everything about this book works. I implore you to read ADSoM and wait with me for the sequel to be released. Misery loves company and all that. But seriously, you’ll love this book. We all tend to like the same books, usually. Sometimes.
