King of Fools
King of Fools | Amanda Foody
Indulge your vices in the City of Sin, where a sinister street war is brewing and fame is the deadliest killer of them all... On the quest to find her missing mother, prim and proper Enne Salta became reluctant allies with Levi Glaisyer, the city’s most famous con man. Saving his life in the Shadow Game forced Enne to assume the identity of Seance, a mysterious underworld figure. Now, with the Chancellor of the Republic dead and bounties on both their heads, she and Levi must play a dangerous game of crime and politics…with the very fate of New Reynes at stake. Thirsting for his freedom and the chance to build an empire, Levi enters an unlikely partnership with the estranged son of mafia donna Vianca Augustine. Meanwhile, Enne remains trapped by Vianca’s binding oath, playing the roles of both darling lady and cunning street lord, unsure which side of herself reflects the truth. As Enne and Levi walk a path of unimaginable wealth and opportunity, new relationships and deadly secrets could quickly lead them into ruin. And when unforeseen players enter the game, they must each make an impossible choice: To sacrifice everything they’ve earned in order to survive... Or die as legends.

A stunning sequel. A bit too long and I hope the third isn't longer. Unique, explosive world with complex and daring characters.

If you ask me again in 5 minutes, I guarantee you some of these books will be different. 😂😂 I had a hard time picking my #Top6Reads I actually read a lot of pretty good books so far this year! I've obviously focused a lot on fantasy on the first half but I've got a bunch of non-fiction and thrillers coming up so my end of year should be interesting.
@Cinfhen

Cinfhen Are any of these stand alone??? 2mo
FantasyChick @Cinfhen Ummmm Heroine is! It's a bit of a difficult read as it deal with addiction but soooo good if you can handle the content. The rest are all first or second in a series 2mo

Book mail!! I can‘t wait to get into King of Fools during @JourneyAThon 😁😁 And my hardcover for Aurora Rising has finally came! I do have the paperback, which I‘m currently reading. But I wanted the Hardcover too. I probably would of originally just ordered the Hardcover but the Paperback is signed. So I had to get both!! 😍

Rating-5/5 Stars
When I read Ace of Shades, I liked it, but didn‘t love it and I did not know if I wanted to continue with the series. But, man I am so glad that I stuck with this series.
King of Fools starts right off just a few weeks after the events of Ace of Shades and spans over several months. There is blood spilled, drama, politics, betrayal, guilt, love, and heartache sprinkled deliciously throughout this book. #netgalley #bookstagram

Incredible! An emotional rollercoaster...

I adored the girl power in this! Lola, Enne and Grace FTW.

I got frustrated with Levi in this because of his selfishness and ambition, but the character growth in this is insane.

And can I say... Grace is so damn cool.

I did get a little confused with everyone‘s motives and assignments but I think it‘s because I listened to this on audible and I really shouldn‘t for complex, political stories :‘)

Oh my gosh! This book is making me want to cry in frustration because the next one isn't out. I loved the atmosphere, the politics, the kick ass girl gang. It was fabulous!!! Anyone who loves intrigue and a kick ass gang of girls needs to read this book and Ace of Shades pronto.
Go to my Goodreads for my full review!

I cannot begin to express how much I love this main character!
First, she kills a man with her shoe and puts it back on, applies her lipstick and goes to gamble.
Next, she wears pearls when she's killing or making deals.
It is such a relief to find a character that takes pride in the ruffles, pearls, and lace.

Have you ever read a book that reminded you of another book...in a good way? Ace of Shades did a little, but it really sunk in with King of Fools how it reminds me of Six of Crows. The characters, the heists, the style of magic, Levi reminds me of Kaz and Enne reminds me of Inej. These were all good reminders of another book I love, but this series is fully its own. I liked the first book but I love the second and am looking forward to the next.

I'm reading this way too slowly (Netgalley granted me a copy at the end of March), but it's just so twisty and good...

I planned on finishing this book last night but I got caught up in the Santa Clarita Diet and lost track of time 🤷‍♀️ So....I put together an easy supper, told everyone to leave me alone and I'm hibernating on my couch for the night and digging in! Shouldn't be hard to finish because it's soooo good!

BookHoarder32 I'm reading this one from netgalley right now and really enjoying it 😁 4mo
wanderinglynn The cover looks very 1980s to me. But not in that cool retro way. (edited) 4mo
LibrarianRyan @BookHoarder32 I knew it was up there. I need to read book one first. Goody is hit or miss with me. Sometimes I love her and sometimes not. (edited) 4mo

I'm always trying to figure this out - e-arc pages versus published pages. This one's a pdf so it should match the pages of the finished copy, right?

Goodreads has it as 384 pages and my pdf from Netgalley says it's 602... where do the extra pages go? 🤔

Birdsong28 It might be to do with the file size and how you are reading i.e tablet or phone app. As on my Kindle app on my phone it always shows a longer time as it's a smaller file as apposed to my Kindle tablet which shows a longer time as it is a bigger file size on my tablet. Also as it's an ARC things might get edited out and Goodreads are expecting a shorter book. Also Goodreads aren't always correct in their page numbers as I have to sometimes change 4mo
Birdsong28 editions as then it will show the correct pages. 😘📚📖 4mo
