Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1) Reviews
This is one of the most interesting books I've read in my life. Its has the feel of Caraval and Six of Crows all mixed together with a hint of fantasy. AMAZING and maybe even going on my favorites list. I'm in shock I can't get over how great this book is. The whole concept is fascinating and kept my interest peaked at all times.

tl;dr: let’s find out just how much it pales in comparison. 🙃

Thank you to Harlequin Teen for sending me a digital copy to review! In no way does this sway my opinions.

- everything is explained really well and there's no info dumping
- the world building was really amazing
- Amanda Foody's writing is simplistic yet brilliant and flowy
- there was a dual POV which I liked!
- The magic system was so unique and original
- There's diversity! There’s a gender fluid character. Levi is a POC and bisexual, and this al ...more
New Reynes is the City of Sin with lots of casinos and shady activity…
So Las Vegas? ACE OF SHADES is not as original as it thinks it is.
