Better than the first, this book was an absolute joy to read! Delilah Bard is an incredible character and I adored everything about her arc in 'A Gathering of Shadows'. I'm glad that I put off reading this series so that I don't have to wait after that brutal cliffhanger at the end.
I think Delilah shone brilliantly in this book, her chapters held some of my favourite moments throughout the story, but Kell and Rhy are close behind her in terms of their development, both together and separately.
Just a wonderful character-driven story, with one of my favourite (more urban) fantasy settings!
