Schwab’s First Kill to hit our screens, and to gear ourselves up, we’ve created this list of things to read to prepare for this incredible new series. Add these books to your must read list and don’t forget to check out First Kill on June 10!


A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell—one of the final remaining magicians with the power to travel between alternate Londons—and Delilah—a cut-purse from a world without magic—first need to stay alive.

To experience the thrill adventure is to risk danger, and there’s danger aplenty in one London, let alone four! Let alone deadly magic. Let alone bloody regime changes and the legacy of empire.

But Kell and Delilah do not alone, and instead live dangerously. Check it out 😎

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

Addie LaRue made a deal with a devil and gained eternal life. Now she travels the world where no one can ever remember her, an immortal ghost.

After 300 years of wandering, this will change. A young man in a hidden bookstore will remember her name.

Burn the Dark by S. A. Hunt

Her ultimate goal is to seek revenge against the coven of witches who wronged her mother long ago. Her witch-hunting YouTube series is massively popular. Her fans don’t know that the reason her content is so good is because it’s real.

Now, when Robin returns to her old home to rural Blackfield, she encounters new friends and new enemies: a mysterious entity known as the Red Lord.

Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Vampires, humans, cops, and criminals collide in the dark streets of Mexico City.

She’s a vampire on the run from a rival narco-vampire clan and he’s just trying to survive the city’s heavily policed streets. He’s also entirely smitten. As the trail of corpses stretches behind them, do Atl and Domingo stand a chance of making it out alive?

The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean

Out on the Yorkshire Moors lives a secret line of people for whom books are food, and who retain all of a book’s content after eating it.

The members of these hidden families adhere to a diet of stories curated for the roles their gender would have them play: stories of valor for men, and cautionary tales for women.

But Devon’s son is born with a darker hunger. Not for books, but for human minds.
