The Fragile Threads of Power

We rated this book:


Bestselling author V.E. Schwab enters the world of the multiverse with this new novel exploring different, but similar, worlds all facing a threat to their very existence. Magic and witches are very much part of the worlds. Each world used to be connected to each other, sharing magic and power, through London. That is, until the magic became too much and the worlds decided to shut the doorway or else risk annihilation.

As time passes, those with the ability to open the door have become rare, and when one of those disappears, a new one appears. Kosika is the new magic user to open the door and has taken the throne; she wants to feed her city with blood. In another London, Rhy Maresh is threatened with rebellion from his subjects. As these two monarchs search for ways to keep their heads and crowns, a young magic user Tes may hold the key to survival.

This book reads very much like a V.E. Schwab book. If you are a fan of her work and the way she uses magic to guide her characters, then you will enjoy this book.
