#BookReview for King of Fools (The Shadow Game, #2) by Amanda Foody


Synopsis: 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.

This title will be released on April 30, 2019.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟
My Review: So this one what can I say about this title?  I ended up reading this one since Jessica didn't like book one and I did.  I loved Ace of Shades but I have to say that this one just didn't cut it.  I felt like the feels for this one could have been better and that I just didn't feel as connected with the characters as I did in book one.  I think that this series would have been better done as a stand alone vs. a series.  It could have been tied up in book one if things would have been cleaner cut.  So for me I think this is the end of my journey with The Shadow Game series.  Because in the end this just was not as good as book one. 











"The relationship between Enne and Levi simmers, and dangers pile up to an exciting climax. Readers will eagerly wish for a sequel that will allow them to revisit New Reynes." -Kirkus Reviews

"Foody's novel is a magical tale of introspection, romance, and self-determination." -Publishers Weekly

"Thieves, rogues, and shady characters have always fascinated me, and so I enjoyed my dive into the morally ambiguous world of New Reynes." -New York Times bestselling author Cinda Williams Chima on Ace of Shades

"Ace of Shades has it all-incredible worldbuilding, cinematic set-pieces, heart-pounding pacing and unpredictable, deliciously messy characters. Foody's impressive and ambitious vision for the City of Sin will linger in my senses for a long time. An utter delight." -New York Times bestselling author Claire Legrand on Ace of Shades
