My fellow Dove Min from Min & Her Books has made an original book tag for Ace of Shades releasing in April. It is now my turn to take part in the fiasco so let us begin.
1. Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of its own!
The Londons in the Shades of Magic Trilogy. You have Grey London with no magic. Red London thriving with magic. White London on the balance of too much and no magic. And black London completely devoid of people because magic overwhelmed the people and took over.
2. The City of Sin is home to three ruthless gangs: the Irons, the Scarhands, and the Doves. Tell us about your favorite fictional criminal character/family/group!
The Dregs from the Six of Crows duology. They operate in Ketterdam. It was run by Per Haskell until Kaz Brekker, one of his lieutenants, took over. Members bear the gang’s crow-and-cup tattoo on the forearm.
3. 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.
Caraval and The Hunger Games. I like how Caraval is a twisted game where nothing is as it seems. You never know what is real or fake and the game can become deadly. The Hunger Games is a literal fight to the death.
4. The Doves are a gang of assassins… What book you’d kill to have in your hands right now?
I am excited about getting Daughter of the Siren Queen, Batman, Labyrinth Lost, Vengeance Road, Retribution Rails, The Wicker King, Cloaked in Shadow, and Ace of Shades.
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 did like the Beautiful Creatures series but as more book started coming out in went to the back of my mind. I sold the first book and never got the rest I just didn’t care for it.
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!
Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn, Okami from The Flame in the Mist, Four from Divergent, Odessa from Reign of the Fallen, Dara from The City of Brass and Kaz Brekker from Six of Crows.
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?
One of the greatest villains I ever read about was Osaron from A Conjuring of Light. He was so evil but so good at being evil lol.
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?
Tessa, Will, and Jem from Infernal Devices. I think I am pretty solid to be honest.
Please do this tag if you want and let me know you did it. I want to see your answers 🙂 That is to for this post 🙂 see you all next time. Oh, and pre-order or I will have to come find you! You can pre-order it here.
