Fans of the Shades of Magic series, get ready. The last chapter of V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic: The Steel Prince graphic novel trilogy hits stores on July 7, 2020.
The third and final chapter, The Rebel Army, once again focuses on Prince Maxim Maresh, the future king of Red London. His foe is Rowan, who was defeated and unmasked by Prince Maxim at the climax of the Night of Knives Tournament. Now, Rowan has taken command of a pirate fleet known as the Rebel Army and has grown it into a force powerful enough to challenge Maxim and destroy his empire. With the fate of the House of Maresh and Red London in his hands, Maxim must win over the people of Verose to convince them to band together against the most powerful magician he has ever faced.

Set in the world of her bestselling fantasy novel series, Schwab’s The Steel Prince explores events that occur prior to her Shades of Magic trilogy. In those books, parallel versions of London exist and each has its own rules and rulers. Grey London is drab, devoid of magic, and ruled by mad King George. Red London pulses with life and magic as it is guided by the Maresh Family, including King Maxim. White London has become so dependent on magic that it has drained the city to its core. And finally, there is Black London, so menacing and dark it may as well be known as the City Which Shall Not Be Named.
The Steel Prince: Rebel Army is illustrated by artist Andrea Olimpieri (Dishonored) and colored by Enrica Angiolini (Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor). It is available for pre-order now and releases on July 7, 2020.
