Ace of Shades book tag (Irons version)

Hey everyone! As part of Amanda Foody's #Shadowgang, specifically on the #Irons Team, I'm really excited to promote her upcoming book Ace of Shades. This Ace of Shades book tag, Irons version, came from Amber at The Literary Phoenix. Without further ado, here are my answers.

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

Hawkins, Indiana 

I got on the Stranger Things bandwagon very late, but for a small town, Hawkins got a lot of mysterious happenings going on. Wonder what's in store for S3?

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

The Dregs 

Kaz and his crew are still my one of favorite groups - they're cunning, sly, and know all the best ways to steal a man's wallet.

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

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I remember reading this and thinking, bloodydamn, this is a hell of a lot more violent than The Hunger Games. The brutal practices of the Institute and Gold society are something to be feared. 

The Irons are a gang of cheats… What is your favorite character that tricks and sneaks around in order to get what they need?

Lila Bard from the Shades of Magic series by VE Schwab

Super sneaky Lila Bard is super sneaky. 

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.

Of Breakable Things by A. Lynden Rolland

I remember reading this when I first started book blogging and I was a lot less stringent in my ratings. Looking back at this book, it was too complicated and confusing in its world building and characters.

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!

Servo au Barco

MY FAVORITE RED RISING CHARACTER. My favorite Howler. He's so great. His scenes with Darrow in Morning Star were so touching; such a beautiful friendship.

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?

Princess Sophia from The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

This is a really recent read, but Princess Sophia in The Belles. THIS GIRL. I couldn't with her. She frustrated me to no end, but I totally get her Azula-like tendencies?! Given the societal pressures and all. Kudos to Dhonielle Clayton for creating such a complex character.

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 actually fine! I think. Camellia Beauregard from The Belles's got my back... I hope! 

Excited and ready to read Ace of Shades now, right? It's set to release on April 10th 2018!

Goodreads Synopsis: 

Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…and 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 school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s 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 expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn't have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne's 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, Levi's 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 she’ll need to play.
