Kell. My greatest fear in life isn't dying. It's being the source of someone else's suffering. I know you feel trapped. I know I'm your cage. And I can't---" His voice broke, and Kell could feel his brother's pain, everything he tried to smother until dark and drown until morning. "You will do this, " said Rhy. "For me. For both of us."You seem to be in trouble,” he called down. He didn’t raise his voice, but it carried nonetheless, his Arnesian accent clipped but clear. Kell is under house arrest by the king for the duration of the tournament so sneaking out is difficult. There are many that would kidnap or kill Kell to overpower their country and now that Kell’s life is Rhy’s the King thinks he must be protected. I finally found Reshad up in Skettis, offering me a quest: "Hidden in Plain Sight" after searching for him for 2 hours, lol - the irony

From the first book, the atmosphere was supposed to be dark, but in this one, it just became darker and heavier. And I think it would’ve figured given the title. But even so, I was expecting a bit more to happen. V.E. Schwab's writing is gorgeous as always. Her talent for describing setting especially stands out here. Usually I can't picture any settings in books, but I have such clear mental images of every moment of this book. And it never feels forced at all! Now that I finished the book, I understand why Victoria Schwab made this choice and the last 40%? Brilliant, exhilarating, and as far as I'm concerned, PERFECTION. There's something to say about a fantasy plot that stays unpredictable, because trust me, when you read a lot of fantasy, it becomes rarer and rarer. This is why I'm rounding up my rating.It's like, they know Holland's every move was commanded by the White London's rulers and he was tortured continuously for years...and yet they're all like, "mmm...Holland, you are a garbage human." Osaron, the magical being inside of Holland, becomes restless and wants to use their power too often and too much. He is a prisoner in Holland’s body. Holland makes a deal with him that he will find a new body for Osaron. Kell will be the recipient and Osaron will go to Red London and leave White London as it is. If Kell says no, Osaron will keep Holland’s body.
