I am part of the Ace of Shades Street Team (Irons), so I thought I would give this tag a try. I found it on the Literary Phoenix blog.
I don’t think I’ll have answers for all of the questions, but can hopefully fill out most of them.
Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own!
I think my go to answer for questions like this have to be the world of Harry Potter. The whole city feels alive with magic and different creatures. I can’t think of any other one that has so much personality.
The City of Sin is home to three ruthless gangs: the Irons, the Scarhands and the Doves. Tell us about your favorite fictional criminal family/gang!
This is a tough one for me. I can’t think of any criminal family offhand. Or gang in the traditional sense. There are a lot of fantasy books I haven’t gotten into yet and I’m sure I’ll find one in a future read.
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.
I probably have to go with The Hunger Games for this one. If I was choosing a book just on a game, I would go with Warcross. But the Hunger Games is literally a life or death game.
The Irons are a gang of cheats… What is your favorite character that tricks and sneaks around in order to get what they need?
Another tough one, but I think I might go with Emika Chen in Warcross. I love her hacking skills.
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.
I don’t really have any that I totally dislike, but I don’t have the same love for the Twilight series that I used to have. I still love that it got me reading YA again and there are parts of it that I enjoy. But I also see some major flaws now that I didn’t think about when it came out.
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!
Thomas Cresswell from Stalking Jack The Ripper. He’s super sarcastic and a bit detached most of the time, but his love for Audrey Rose is just so sweet and pure.
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?
Hmm. I’m just not sure on this one. I need to think about it.
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?
The last book I read was Ace of Shades. So I feel pretty good about Enne looking for me. Especially if she has Levi to help her. Hopefully they find me alive, but I doubt I would last long in New Reynes.
Yep, I had a hard time with some of those, but they were fun questions. I’m guessing most of the Irons have already done this tag. But anyone can do it, so you’re tagged if you want. Make sure you let me know so I can read your responses.
And don’t forget to pre-order Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody!
