Ace of Shades Book Tag

I was lucky enough to read Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody and I can definitely tell you it was AMAZING. Anyways, I found this awesome book tag over at Min and Her Books so be sure to check her out! Without further ado…

1. Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own!

I can’t help myself! I have to say Ketterdam because it just stays in your head. It’s impossible to forget with all its gangs, violence, and casinos.

2. The City of Sin is home to three ruthless gangs: the Irons, the Scarhands and the Doves. Tell us about your favourite fictional criminal family/gang!

Oh this one is so easy! It’s obviously the Dregs from Six of Crows (hard not to use this book more than once)! Kaz Brekker and his team pull off the ultimate heist and it’s hard not to admire the genius behind it all.

3. Enne and Levi are about to be thrown into a deadly game… Name your favourite book in which the characters must play with, and for, their lives.

OOOH! The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith! The characters are literally sucked into a game and play with their lives. She’s still one of my favourite authors after all these years and I discovered her when I was going through my crazy Twilight phase (total cliche, I know) and it was all vampires, all the time.

4. The Doves are a gang of assassins… What book would you kill to have in your hands right now?

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyami! It sounds SO good and I wish I’d heard about it earlier. It has all the makings of an epic fantasy and I can’t wait until March! Would totally sell my soul for it.

5. The City of Sin is full of people with dark and complicated pasts. Name one book or book series you used to like, but don’t anymore.

I used to really love the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast, but after a while it just became extremely overdone and repetitive. I think it has something like 11 or 12 books in it? I got so bored of reading them, but I still finished the series because I hate leaving things unfinished.

6. With complicated pasts abound, we can find many… burnt cinnamon rolls, so to speak. Name a character that has prickly and tough exterior, but is actually a sweetheart deep down!

Probably Cal from Red Queen because he comes off as so intimidating to everyone else due to his Silver status and royal heritage. He could brush you off one second and sweep you off your feet the next. Poor Cal is just so misunderstood and I feel bad because everyone kind of shuns him.

7. Not only anti-heroes live in the Ace of Shades world! In New Reynes, one can find plenty of villains as well. Which bookish character do you just love to hate?

Oh most definitely the Darkling. He takes the cake because he can be deceptively sweet, but he will literally haunt your dreams and kill you in the next second.

8. You, much like our main character Enne’s mother, went missing in the City of Sin. The main character from the last book you read is the one looking for you… How screwed are you?

I’m like the least screwed person out there probably. I just finished Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Simon Spier is a pretty harmless guy. If anything, he might try to stuff my face with oreos, but it wouldn’t be a bad way to go out.
