King of Fools Reviews

  • ☆High Lady of The Night Court☆

    King of Fools was so much more than I more was expecting from this world. It was so much more complicated and the sheer amount of things that happened in this book is unbelievable. There was not a single moment that wasn't packed with plot and not a single moment which was slow.

    The relationship between all the characters evolves so much and just as new relations and made old ones can be broken

    King of Fools was so much more than I more was expecting from this world. It was so much more complicated and the sheer amount of things that happened in this book is unbelievable. There was not a single moment that wasn't packed with plot and not a single moment which was slow.

    The relationship between all the characters evolves so much and just as new relations and made old ones can be broken. This book was a roller coaster in the sense that the protagonists go through many events of which some are amazing and some that are huge set backs, and events like this happen over and over again. The scale is constantly tipping from one side to another and there is very little distinction between good and evil, of any at all.

    The relationships between the characters are highlighted in this book, more so than the last one, because we see the book in three perspectives and all three characters have very different plans and goals and are in starkly varied situations. In the last book all the character had similar paths and worked together in many things, while they still work together they also work individually in a way that is both personal growth for some of them and destructive for others.We see the book through Enne, Levi, and Jac’s perspective.

    The last book ended with Enne and Levi running after the events of the Shadow Game. Enne discovers that she is a Mizer and Levi kills the chancellor. Now, there is a war brewing between the North Side and the South Side of New Reynes. The leaders of the gangs and their seconds have bounties on their heads and are being hunted and amongst them is Seánce, which is Enne’s secret identity.

    Vianca Augustine is going to run in the elections but now her son, Harrison Augustine, is running and recruits Levi to help him win the election, and in return Harrison will kill Vianca and set Levi free from Vianca’s omerta. Levi must figure out if the risk is worth his freedom and if he chooses to accept the offer he must figure out how to plot Harrison’s rise without disobeying Vianca’s orders.

    The blurb of this book is pretty vague and I didn't understand why before, but after having read the book I completely understand. To mention anything else will confuse the readers and explaining it would reveal major spoilers. So if you liked the last book I would definitely encourage you to read this one.

    Ruthless, painful and unforgiving, it is a book about ambition, vengeance, and loss. It's about gambling, luck, murder, and weighing the risks of opportunities against death. It is extravagant and complicated and heartbreaking. It's about legends and history and superstition. It's about games, fights, manipulation, and staying one step ahead of your opponent. It is about power freedom and safety. It is shocking, revealing, and intricate.

    And it's only getting better.

    Amanda Foody!

    I will never be the same again.

    Respect.

    , is so full of action and political intrigue it left my head spinning!

    We see the return of our favorite characters from the first book, Enne, Levi, Lola and Jac, and get to meet some great new characters as well.

    Welcome, Tock, my sweet little bomber. ((Who I dreamily picture as Michelle Rodriguez. You're welcome.))

    New deals, alliances and deceptions are made, with the final scenes shaking New Reynes to its foundation.

    I was really impressed with the maturation of Foody's writing for this one. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the first book but ultimately ended up having some issues with the magic system and world building. All of those slight criticisms are completely absent with this book.

    The plotting in this is seamless, the world lush and bold; the magic system didn't feel as prevalent in this one and I never felt confused by what was there. I look at this as a fairly evident improvement over the first novel and I hope other people feel the same way.

    In addition to the growth I feel I have witnessed for the author, the growth in these characters was tremendous as well. Enne and Levi both have strong character arcs, Enne most of all. The strategies and ambitions they both show, man, so good.

    If you are a Slytherin like me, this series is not to be missed. Also, if you were just okay with the first book, I really hope you continue on. I do not see how this second book could disappoint!

    Now, the question of how the heck am I going to survive until the third book is released!?

    Thank you so much to the publisher, Harlequin TEEN/Inkyard Press, for providing me with an early copy of this to read and review. You know I will be knocking on your door as soon as I know there are review copies of Book 3!

    Amanda Foody:

    I mean, I've read three of Amanda Foody's book so I think it's safe to say that she's on a quest to emotionally kill me because ???? ???? ????

    But more importantly, this review will probably just be 1,000 words of

    She's fearless and strong and unapologetic and it was so

    to see her out there changing the world in her white gloves and dark lipstick and dress.

    One of the things that I

    appreciated about Enne's narrative was her embrace into her identity as someone who grew up in Bellamy and how she started refusing to take criticism and jokes of "being someone from a finishing school."

    , and I love how smoothly this piece tackled that with Enne's character arc. My favorite thing ever was how Enne got her own group of girl friends who all were strong and willing to fight but also painted toenails and did face masks. (There was also so much casual lgbt+ diversity?? we had an f/f side romance & a character who was so casually mga.)

    Not only this, but

    She was just a morally grey villain who did bad things to get what she wanted and wasn't apologetic about her methods in any way at all. I think that Vianca's discussions with Enne was what really did it for me; Vianca's past struggle to claim power within her family because she was a girl seriously made me emotionally attached to her. I think that Vianca truly had affection for Levi and Enne, but her actions were really messed-up and terrible.

    If you want all of the characters to stay exactly the same as the characters from Ace of Shades,

    Levi goes further than a charming and well-intentioned cheat, Enne goes further than being an innocent prim lady. All of the characters become so much more than what they originally were, and Amanda's characterization of them made them feel like solid, tangible people who make mistakes and sometimes do bad things.

    Honestly, I'm kind of amazed at what Amanda Foody did. She really did...

    The fact that she introduced Jac's perspective really

    With his point of view, we can really see Levi so much more clearly: he's well-meaning and wants to be a positive influence on the world, but he often does more harm than good. His desperate reach for glory isn't shown as something endearing anymore, but rather self-destructive, and I think that that's something unique about this novel.

    Something else I want to mention is the portrayal of drug addiction in this novel. The new perspective, Jac, is a recovering addict from a drug called Lullaby. I've never been addicted to drugs, but Jac's feeling of helplessness towards drug abuse seemed so palpable and realistic to me.

    There was also a specific scene in which Levi's Gift for orb-making had historical weight— in the past, people (and Levi's family) had been killed for being orb-makers— and that was why Levi was personally against creating orbs. I seriously appreciated that this was mentioned and a part of Levi's character, especially in a fantasy world.

    so, to conclude, 🤘

    🤘
