Wayward Children by Seanan McGuire•3•Beneath the Sugar Sky

“There is kindness in the world, if we know how to look for it. If we never start denying it the door.”
― Seanan McGuireBeneath the Sugar Sky

The series was darker than I imagined since all I’d read about it was Home for children who went to magical worlds and then had to came back, but all of them want to return. Turns out there are murders and stuff.

The three books are completely different from each other, I’ll get into more detail for each one but the thing is that they explore different characters and experiences. They can be classified in: The going home, the coming back, and the return.

1·Every Heart a Doorway

2·Down Among the Sticks and Bones

A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab

“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”
V.E. Schwab, A Darker Shade of Magic

Title: A Darker Shade of Magic

Series: Shades of Magic #1

Author: V. E. Schwab

Publisher: Destino

Format: Paperback–Spanish translation

Translator: Julieta Gorlero

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

A Darker Shade final for Irene

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.
Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they’ll never see. It’s a defiant hobby with dangerous consequences, which Kell is now seeing firsthand.
After an exchange goes awry, Kell escapes to Grey London and runs into Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations. She first robs him, then saves him from a deadly enemy, and finally forces Kell to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.
Now perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, they’ll first need to stay alive.

Unboxing Illumicrate: Hidden Talents

I know what you are thinking: Consu, we are in July already. What are you doing unboxing may? Well, turns out I live in a third-world “developing” country and that means that public services are shit, public services like mail… I fought with a security guard, befriended a stressed mom and cheated Customs because I was tired by that point-

So, after waiting for two months, doing most of the paperwork required, and standing in line for over three hours, I GOT IT

It took so much time that you all are getting this thing unboxed right now.

Let’s get to it, then::
