Ace of Shades Reviews

  • Korrina  (OwlCrate)

    Very interesting story, quite unlike anything else I've read before. Really enjoyed my time reading this one.

  • Cinda

    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.

    I can see that this book is likely going to get a lot of buzz in the next coming months.

    While there were some things that could have been stronger,

    The story follows a young woman, Enne Salta, as she journeys to a place known as the “City of Sin” in search of her mother. Enne teams up with our other POV character, Levi, and meets many others along the way while figuring out who she can trust.

    It’s well developed and the worldbuilding is presented in a mostly digestible way.

    The plot is interesting and fast paced, sure to keep the reader flipping pages. It definitely heated up during the last quarter of the book, and I liked how the story almost felt like a full arc.

    I don’t have a lot to say about the writing. It’s a pretty average third person perspective. I wasn’t particularly impressed by it, but it was effective enough to carry the story.

    I wasn’t too sure about the characters in the first half, but a lot of them go in interesting directions. By the end, I was caring for them significantly more.

    In some ways, I found Enne to be a refreshing face compared to common young adult heroines. She’s badass but still allowed to be feminine. However, she could also be annoying and bratty, even borderline TSTL.

    Enne’s character development was surprisingly good, if a bit overdramatic at times.

    The “street lord and con man”, as the blurb calls him. Mostly, I just saw him as a wannabe Kaz Brekker. I had trouble taking him seriously as a seventeen year old street lord, but I liked him as a character.

    I went back and forth between being on board, as some romantic moments felt deserved, and kind of rolling my eyes at the cheesier bits, especially in the first half.

    : This book has been getting a ton of comparisons to

    . There are a lot of glaring similarities - our two main characters are an acrobat and a teenage street lord for crying out loud. And this book was trying really hard to sell the group of antiheroes thing.

    Constant repetition of the phrase “the missy”. Bleh.

    Cursing substitutes are my pet peeve. Don’t tell me a world would have every other word in the English language other than swear words.

    Okay, here’s a challenge: try to read these sentences without laughing.

    These lines were supposed to be serious and I was cracking up. Authors: please stop doing this if you want your books to be taken seriously.

    I enjoyed this read for the most part -

    Damn this cover is just so much of

    and I need it in my life so bad.

    Amanda keeps tweeting A:TLA references while discussing writing and I mean, do I really need anything more than a book that was written with my all-time favorite television show in mind??

    What a cover.
