King of Fools – Amanda Foody


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.

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

Gaaahhhh I have been DYING to get my hands on this book. After the epic ending of Ace of Shades I needed book two, and I have been waiting a YEAR to get it. Thankfully, this book was well worth the wait. I really enjoyed Ace of Shades, but King of Fools was a whole new level of awesome.

I think that the most unique thing about Amanda Foody’s books is her writing style. Even in scenes that are mostly political and not action packed, her writing holds you completely captive. I don’t know how else to describe it, honestly. From the moment I picked up this book, I wanted to nothing other than read it.

I LOVED that we got three POV’s in King of Fools. Jac was a character that I really loved in book one so it was amazing to get so much more of him in the sequel. Things from book one that I didn’t think would come back around tied in wonderfully, and the romance kept me on edge for the entirety of the book.

If you want a series that is fast paced, full of mystery, gangs, action, romance and intrigue then you’re absolutely going to want to pick this series up. Book three needs to be in my hands NOW – I’m already dying for another book from Foody.
