Kathryn from Nose Stuck in a Book did this book tag and I thought it would be a fun tag to do!
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. These worlds have a personality of their own… White London, Grey London, Red London…
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 Six of Crows duology has, in my opinion, some of the best criminal characters. They run their business in Ketterdam and Kaz Brekker is THE criminal mastermind. He is clever, sassy and merciless. Love him!
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.
One of the recent reads where the characters had to play with their lives with potentially deadly consequences is Caraval. You never know what is real and what is not, or where the lines are drawn. Could also think of The Maze Runner as they literally had to run for their lives. Have you seen the latest movie instalment?
4. The Doves are a gang of assassins… What book you’d kill to have in your hands right now?
Right now? Obsidio by Amy Kaufmann and Jay Kristoff. I am not sure how I can pace myself until March!
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.
Can’t really think of anything as I used to read classics in highschool, only recently started reading YA fantasy so quite difficult to say that with passage of time, I stopped liking certain books.
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!
I would go for Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy series. She always acts really tough as tried to be strong for Lissa, but often she is suffering on the inside. Going back to the Six of Crows, I’d add Kaz on this as well, because although he is a criminal mastermind, he does care about his crew!
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?
My favourite villain is and forever will be Harley Quinn from the comic books. Nobody will be on par with her! Ever!
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?
Not screwed as I’ll have have Merry and Leo from The Witch’s Kiss trilogy to kick ass and save the day! They would seriously turn the world upside down to either save me or kill me (depending on why they were looking for me).
I invite you to do this tag if you want. I’d love it if you’d let me know so I can see your answers! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
