    Thieves, rogues, and shady characters have always fascinated me, and so I enjoyed my dive into the morally ambiguous world of New Reynes. House of the Rising Sun meets Six of Crows. ...

    ?The City of Sin was a game, but not everyone was a player.? Ace of Shades was for sure not what I was expecting. Some said it was like one of my favorite series of all time, Six of Crows, but I didn?t see that. A lot of people said it had a setting like the city I live ...

    Despite Enne?s flaws - namely that she was mucking annoying - she knew how to weasel in and out of a conversation. You know what else is mucking annoying? Made up curse words like mucking! Fictional profanity almost always has me laughing (and not in a good way) but it was especia...

    This book keeps getting compared to Six of Crows, but honestly ? that?s just going to make the disappointment even more devastating, when everyone realizes it wishes it could even come close to Six of Crows? level of brilliance. (I?m obviously not at all biased.) tl;dr: let?...

    to compare this to ?six of crows? has been a disservice to not only the reader, but to both books, as well. it sets an impossibly high standard, one that will only lead to disappointment. having seen a lot of negative reviews in regards to how this book was pitched and the comparis...

    Right. So I've found my new book to be so utterly and absolutely OBSESSED WITH. I need at least four dozen heart eyes and sixty-two stars, is all I'm saying. This book is like an ode to Slytherin schemes and my little heart is just beating so fast. It's twisty and madly addictive and t...

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via Edelweiss for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH this book was such a pleasant surprise!!! I haven't read the author's debut yet so I didn't know what to expect, but now I'm looking...

    When this book?s synopsis first started circulating the YA book community, I was unspeakably excited for it. A book about dangerous gangs and gambling, with a bi young man of color as one of the protagonists? Sign me up! Unfortunately, this book suffered the same problem I have with ...

    I LOOOOOOVED Ace of Shades so much. What an exhilarating, fantastical start to a fantasy series! CW: violence, pedophilia (it?s totally condemned in the story) I adore Amanda Foody?s writing style. It is so descriptive and easy to engage with. The entire time I felt as if I w...

    So if Six of Crows gave birth to a baby, this would be that baby. I thought Ace of Shades was a great start to the series. I really liked these characters. Enne and Levi are no Kaz and Inej, but I still loved them and their distinct personalities, especially Enne's cookie eating fetish...

    Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody is the first book of the young adult fantasy The Shadow Game series. I saw a lot of comparisons to Six of Crows before I began to read this one and my first hope was that it wouldn?t have that same slow pace as Six of Crows but of course, yes, it did. Th...

    2.5 STARS No one is more disappointed than I am that this rating is anything less than 5 STARS. I went in wholly expecting to adore this story; the cover is gorgeous and the comparisons to Six Of Crows had me cautiously fangirling over this book from the moment I knew of it's existe...

    A BR with Lily! Sadly DNF @ page 150 I almost finished day 2 but I can't continue this book, let alone a whole trilogy! I had one thought while reading this: that it sounded like it was written by an accountant. Guess what? It is! I came here to check the author, only to find out ...
