Teaser Thursday: The Fragile Threads Of Power By V.E. Schwab


Please note that I have not yet read The Fragile Threads of Power By V.E. Schwab. That said, this should not be constituted as a review. Instead, this is carefully (no spoilers) pulled quotes from the first chapter (and the second page of the second chapter). First, here is the Goodreads summary of The Fragile Threads of Power by V.E. Schwab (quotes below summary):

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, and set in the world of A Darker Shade of Magic, V. E. Schwab opens a new door into perilous adventure and tangled schemes with The Fragile Threads of Power.

Once, there were four worlds, nestled like pages in a book, each pulsing with fantastical power and connected by a single city: London. Until the magic grew too fast and forced the worlds to seal the doors between them in a desperate gamble to protect their own. The few magicians who could still open the doors grew more rare as time passed, and now, only three Antari are known in recent memory―Kell Maresh of Red London, Delilah Bard of Grey London, and Holland Vosijk of White London.

Summary Review

Thank you to Tor Books for an advance copy of The Threads of Power by V.E. Schwab, which releases on September 26, 2023.


But barely a glimpse of them have been seen in the last seven years―and a new Antari named Kosika has appeared in White London, taking the throne in Holland’s absence. The young queen is willing to feed her city with blood, including her own―but her growing religious fervor has the potential to drown them instead.

And back in Red London, King Rhy Maresh is threatened by a rising rebellion, one determined to correct the balance of power by razing the throne entirely.

Amidst this tapestry of old friends and new enemies, a girl with an unusual magical ability comes into possession of a device that could change the fate of all four worlds.

Her name is Tes, and she’s the only one who can bring them together―or unravel it all.
