Ace of Shades | Amanda Foody
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streetsand secrets hide in every shadow Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing schooland her reputationbehind to follow her mothers trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted. Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expectedhes a street lord and con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesnt have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Ennes offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems. Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless Mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levis enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city And shell need to play.

A fantastic, bold, original story. Foody has created strong characters and an unparalleled world of corruption. Close to being 5 stars, I'm giving it 4. It took me longer than anticipated to finish because of all the details and it seemed to drag on a tad. What an entertaining ride!

JanuarieTimewalker13 This one and My Brilliant Death intrigue me!! I wonder how the second in this duology is? 3mo
IheartYA @JanuarieTimewalker13 I started the second one but it's 600 pages. I'm going to read it while reading other books. I think I'll get bored reading a book that long. 3mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 Sounds good!! 3mo

Already up for hours. #audiowalk with my daughter, I cast my vote in the EU elections then we got fresh rolls.

Pictures show my daughter's school, where the ballot room is, and our "bread" tote (Books turn Muggles into Wizards).

#audioexercise this morning. Kids are still asleep and the #ShadowCat woke me at 5.20am by throwing flower pots from the windowsill. 😬

julesG @GingerAntics I fear I've become an all day person. Night owl and lark. 4mo
BookwormAHN Nice kitty. Good start for the day 👏🏻 4mo
julesG @BookwormAHN Nice? Naughty, more like. He's destroyed 2 bottles holding sticky liquid, 3 cups/mugs, 4 flower pots, a large glass and a glass candle holder. By throwing all of the cups off the shelf above my birchwood kitchen table, the table now has several scars. Similar with a wooden bench in the sitting room. 4mo
BookwormAHN Okay, that was sarcasm. My cat is also naughty and does not allow me to keep plants in my windows. She either eats them or knocks them out trying to get at the geckos on the outside. 4mo
julesG @BookwormAHN Swallow, pigeons and insects are our problem. So far it was mainly my fault when a flower pot fell. Truly. I put some in spots where they were precariously perched. The plants I keep, succulents mainly, are not poisonous for cats, but don't taste well. So chewing is not a problem. Anyway, the sirup bottles and cups he threw off the shelf and his timing are more of a problem. 😶 4mo
julesG I might be using this book for #SFFTBRChallenge @Schnoebs - still thinking about which prompt 4mo
Andrew65 #ShadowCat obviously is wanting you to maximise your reading time! 😳 4mo
Clwojick Cats! Mine decided he was going to sleep on the kitchen counter the other night, and knocked a bunch of pots off the counter when he was trying to get past the drying rack. He knows she not allowed up there, so I guess he only tries it when I‘m sleeping😅 4mo
wanderinglynn Way to go! 🙌🏻 My Cat also decided I didn‘t need to sleep in today. He started loudly meowing about 5:05 (I normally get up at 5.) and didn‘t stop until I got up. The he laid down and went back to sleep. 😹 4mo
julesG @wanderinglynn That's just so typical. Mine are exactly the same, as soon as I am fully awake they go back to sleep. 4mo
OrangeMooseReads The second my alarm goes off my cat is there wanting love. She doesn‘t care if I get up but she wants her head scratched. Great job getting the workout in! 4mo

Took an #audiowalk around the former granary buildings while my daughter was at dance class. First outing of the year for my red converse. Rain and a thunderstorm coming up.

The granary buildings have been repurposed and now offer office space, a boulder centre, art studios,...

Such a fabulous read! There were a few overused tropes, but I loved the magic system and the Vegas inspired world. And it is so refreshing to see a girl who isn't afraid to be feminine! Enne is the beautiful badass we all know and love! Puts on her lipstick, her heels, and is ready to attack! #aceofshades #amandafoody #goodreads

Fantasy. Romance. Mystery. An EPIC surname. What more could you want?

This kept me engrossed the whole time! I‘m infatuated with these characters and I ship the main romance SO HARD.

I was blushing, smiling, laughing, squealing in anxiety, and stressing out the whole time. Yet, I‘m not kidding when I say it was an enjoyable experience.

Can‘t wait for King of Fools on the 30th!!

I absolutely love the world that Amanda Foody creates in Ace of Shades. When I saw that this was marketed as Six of Crows meets Caraval, I knew that I was going to have to read it. I will admit that I didn‘t think Levi was as well written as Kaz, and the diversity felt a little bit forced to me, but the concept of blood and split talents saves the book. Not to mention the history with the Mizers and the Shadow Game and that mysterious guide book?

Bailedbailed

I‘m bailing. This book is by no means poorly written; it just isn‘t for me. It‘s really similar to Six of Crows (which I didn‘t love). And I did something I NEVER do with this book. I felt it building toward a story arc I‘ve seen before, so I flipped to the end and read the last two chapters. Yup. Predictable. It builds toward a sequel that I really don‘t want to read, so I‘m calling it. Ace of Shades is well written, just not for me! #DNF

Cailey_Mac I‘m reading this currently; I‘m trying so hard to get into it but at page 72 it STILL hasn‘t happened yet 9mo
ravenlee I do that every so often, and it usually works the way it did for you. Except that one time in high school I had no hope of finishing the assigned book in time so I skipped to the end...that one didn‘t help. 9mo

Cailey_Mac Still on my tbr 🙈 but I‘ve heard great things about it! 10mo
hermyknee @Cailey_Mac I‘m so behind on my Owl Crate books! This one is starting out strong though and I‘m enjoying it so far. It has been compared so Six of Crows, but so far I like it better - I hope it keeps up the pace! 10mo
Cailey_Mac @hermyknee Me too! I‘m STILL working on the 2017 books as well as the 2018 books 🙈💀 at least when I do read them, I like most of them! And oooo; I think I‘ll have to read Ace of Shades next! I hope you like it 😊 10mo

Finished my first book of #8intwo ! (I was 2/3 of the way done when the readathon started; it's not actually impressive 😂) I really enjoyed this book about a girl who travels to a city known for its ability to corrupt in order to find her missing mother. She teams up with a street lord and together they attempt to survive the city's deadly games. 3.5⭐️

Saw this over on Instagram--any motivation to get more reading done before the end of the month! I've read a lot less in June than I thought I would, probably because I've been travelling. Would be great to finish a few books this weekend. First up will be Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody; I'm about 2/3 done. #8intwo

CSeydel Eight books or eight hours? 1y
Beachesnbooks @CSeydel 8 hours! No way I could do 8 books 😂 1y
CSeydel Same! Eight hours, maybe. But I had just seen someone post that they‘ve read 194 arcs so far this year, so sometimes I think I‘m the slowest reader on the entire site. (edited) 1y
Beachesnbooks @CSeydel Whoa that's intense. I'm very impressed with people who read that much but I'm nowhere near that! You're definitely not the slowest reading Litten! My goal this weekend is to try to finish 2 books I'm already partway through (and one is a super short book of poetry 😂) 1y

This was a really solid start to a series! Dynamic characters with strong arcs, a really strong setting, and some great descriptions. At the same time, I wasn‘t necessarily entranced by any of this, and the pacing of the plot felt both too much and dragged out at the same time. Not a favorite, but I‘m interested to see where it will go next! ★★★☆☆.

Intriguing concept, very evocative writing, and some fascinating characters, but I still didn‘t love this. The background politics are so complicated and not explained enough, and it‘s clear that they‘re going to be very important in the next book. Don‘t know if I‘ll go on with this series or not.
