King of Fools Blog Tour

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 Vianca Augustine’s estranged son. Meanwhile, Enne remains trapped by the mafia donna’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.

King of Fools (The Shadow Game #2)
by Amanda Foody
Publisher: Inkyard Press
Release Date: April 30th 2019
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult


King of Fools by Amanda Foody is such an amazing follow up to Ace of Shades. I love how clever Foody is with this book. This book focuses a lot on Enne. We really get to know her in this book. We see how fearless she is. I love her unapologetic attitude. She definitely knows how to work with what she has. I really enjoyed how Enne decides to put together her own girl gang. This girl gang is pretty amazing. They really supported each other.

This book expands the world from Ace of Shades so much more. I feel like all the characters grew even more. We really got to see different sides of them. One of my favorite things in a book is seeing characters evolve and become better characters, and let me tell you...Foody does a great job with this. You will not be disappointed in this book. I liked it way more than the first one.

Then we have Jac. Jac, I love you dearly and I want to make the world so much better for you. Jac deals with a drug abuse problem. He is finally getting better only to be thrown into a world of Chaos that could make him worse again. My love goes out to you Jac.

This was definitely a great sequel and I am really looking forward to book three. Thank you Amanda Foody for writing such an amazing book.
