King of Fools by 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…” ~ Description from Goodreads
This book was AWESOME! I loved it so much more than the first. I loved that it was told from 3 points of view this time (Enne, Levi, and Jac) so I was able to connect with more of the characters. Seeing more sides of the story was great.
There was so much going on this time but the plot was still very engaging and easy to follow. There is never a dull moment in The City of Sin! The players in King of Fools had so much going on individually and together that I was stressed out through this whole read. BUT IN A GOOD WAY I PROMISE. This book had a lot to with the politics in the City of Sin and lets just say politics in a city ran by gangs can get intense.
That ending….. What…. WHY? I got so sucked into this story that the ending of this book left me emotionally slayed. I kind of need book 3 ASAP but I also kind of need time to recover.
I would recommend this book even if you are on the fence about the series after reading the first book. Give it a try! Like I said, I loved this one so much more than the first.
