King of Fools by Amanda Foody

King of Fools by Amanda Foody

In Ace Of Shades, Erienne Salta liked dresses and devoured cookies like they were oxygen.  She was naive and interesting and determined and had grit. I miss that Enne.  Because in King Of Fools, our protagonists seem like entirely different people.  Levi is all over the place, and the charm that made me enjoy him in the first book seems to be lost now because Levi’s just a hot mess.  The darling bite of his personality seem to have shifted to Jac.  And Lola, so full of promise? She faded to the background.  We have a lot of new faces […]

10 Book Bloggerish Things I am Grateful for this Year

10 Book Bloggerish Things I am Grateful for this Year

Bonjour, mes chers. American Thanksgiving is this Thursday and while it had some grisly, mortifying beginnings, it has become a day for family and gratitude and reflection.  And, frankly, for food.  Big focus on food.  But it’s still a good time to look back and reflect on the previous year and find things that have brought us joy and to be grateful for them. I didn’t do one of these last year, so I really wanted to remedy that this year. I a grateful for… a consistent readership base. We bloggers but a lot of work into our content for […]

Villains We Love to Hate

Villains We Love to Hate

You can love the protagonist, love the romantic relationships… you can even fall head over heels with the world building, but what’s a fantasy without a proper villain?  Whether you’re the type of person who enjoys the enigmatic Darking from Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, or quivers under Tolkien’s Eye of Sauron, a good villain really makes the story. I’m finding lately in YA that a lot of villains are multi-dimensional… to the point that you’re unsure if they’re doing bad things for a good reason, or if they’re totally 100% evil.  I recently read Children of Blood and Bone where the villain was […]

Some Love for Ace of Shades Minor Characters

Some Love for Ace of Shades Minor Characters

As I’ve been writing these posts every week, I can’t help but notice there’s a lot of love for Enne and Levi out there, and there’s a lot of love for the city of New Reynes itself… but there are a few AMAZING characters that I haven’t seen on the internet at all.  These three characters stole my heart the moment they walked into the pages of Ace of Shades, and they deserve a little love on the blogosphere.  So, in honor of these three… I made a few aesthetics. I promise, these are just peeks at three really awesome characters. […]

Get to Know the Gangs of Ace of Shades

In order to survive on the streets of New Reynes, it’s smartest to join a gang.  The city has three major gangs to choose from, each of their own specialty. Before relocating to New Reynes, you may wish to consider which Lord you’ll be pledging your allegiance to…. The Doves The Doves are ruthless mercenaries and assassins.  They die their hair white to stand out.  If you ever find yourself in a dark alley with a Dove, you best say your prayers while running as fast as you can. Aesthetic from The Caffeinated Bookworm The Scarhands The Scarhands are smugglers, […]
