Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game, #1)

Ace of Shades

(The Shadow Game #1)

by

Amanda Foody (Goodreads Author)
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, Enne has only one lead: the 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.

KING OF FOOLS BOOK #2 is now available!

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…

My descent into a life as a bookaholic

I have become a serious bookaholic lately.

I keep getting arcs and not reading them.

 

I need some help being accountable.

I will list the ARCs I can reasonably get to this month and the approximate order I will read them in.

one direction scroll GIF

I need you guys to cheer me, boo me, yell at me if I don’t get them done! I need serious help. I have over 150-ish arcs!!! With only like 30 sent in!

cheer GIFspongebob squarepants thumbs down GIFenough scream GIF by Originals

So the reasonable amount of ARC is about 8 I can read about 10-15 books a month so about a 1/2 should be ARCS.

Priority ARCS:

Corpse & Crown (Cadaver & Queen Book 2)Stolen Time (Dark Stars, #1)The AntidoteCourting Darkness (Courting Darkness duology)A Danger to Herself and OthersThe Warrior Maiden (Hagenheim, #9)Diamond Heart (Cherrywood Grove #2)The Everlasting Rose (The Belles, #2)

Weird thing just happened

I was declined for an ARC of a book on Edelweiss. I’m always sad when that happens but it was something I’m familiar with at least…. I’m sure many of your review bloggers are as well. But now I just got an email from them saying I was accepted? What?! How did this happen? Why deny me then accept me? Was it an error? Was it a change of mind. What do you guys think?

Here is the notifications thing btw. Just in case none of you believe me. lol.

Really weird but so happy.

Emily’s sister disappeared without a trace. When authorities refused to search for her, Emily was forced to accept that she was on her own if she ever wanted to learn the truth. That’s how she ended up stumbling into a den of werewolves under the full moon. But even in the darkness of this terrifying new world, hope can come in unexpected forms. For Emily, it came as the most feared among all immortals: the Executioner himself. Now, he’s all that stands between her and being someone’s next meal. But his protection has a price…
Oh and this is not the pretty cover I was attracted too! 😦
Sadly that one was not on Goodreads and I don’t know if Edelweiss would like me to copy it. Hope it goes up on Goodreads soon. It’s pretty. 🙂

State of the ARC: 2018

I joined my first ARC site (Netgalley) in Feb of this year and while it has not been a great success one of my goals in 2019 is to improve my percentage.

Goal ARCs for 2019

 

I would like to get the first two ‘rows’ done. So:

  • 80% ratio badge – submit feedback for at least 80% of the titles for which they’re approved
  • Top Reviewer badge – 3+ reviews have been chosen by publishers to be featured on a book’s Title Details page
  • Auto-Approvals badge – have been auto-approved by four or more publishers on NetGalley
  • 10+ Reviews – have posted ten or more reviews on NetGalley
  • 25+ Reviews – have posted 25 or more reviews on NetGalley

Since I’m already at 18 for this year I’m also aiming for some of the third row but that is more of an optional goal.

  • 50+ Reviews – have posted 50 or more reviews on NetGalley
  • 100+ Reviews – have posted 100 or more reviews on NetGalley
  • 200+ Reviews – have posted 200 or more reviews on NetGalley

 

Now on to Edelweiss. I currently have 30 ARCs for Edelweiss which is really good considering I only joined in the past couple of months. (Thank you Edelweiss for being so generous). My goal here is to get to 100% rating.

 

Now on to the pie chart. I thankfully found a pie chart maker. Let’s see how it will copy.

 

chart

As you can see I own 100 ARCS right now.

I’ve read 20 this year.

I currently have 65 from Netgalley and 30 from Edelweiss and 5 from other arc sites.

I think that’s all I need to add. I will update again if anyone has any suggestions.

 

Oh, wait recs of ARC’s I read!

For 2019 I recommend the quiet and the-cerulean
