A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber. I received this book from Netgalley recently and I honestly don’t remember requesting it. I wasn’t fond of Caraval so, to say the least, I wasn’t enthusiastic about picking this book up. But, if I don’t review it my Netgalley review percentage will drop and I’m obsessive about keeping it high. So, I opened this one up last night and read the first couple chapters. So far I like Tella’s POV in this one more than Scarlett’s in Caraval. We’ll see how it goes. Open mind.

Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.

Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1) by Amanda Foody. When I got this eARC I was pretty excited to get started on it. I loved Foody’s debut, Daughter of the Burning City, so I was expecting great things from this, her second book. Admittedly, it was a bit of a let down. The plot is fascinating and magical but the characters fall completely flat. Throughout the entire book I never felt a thing for any of them. They were just…there. An okay read but nothing like what I had anticipated.

What do you think you’ll read next?

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world–and of each other.

Furyborn (Empirium #1) by Claire Legrand. I had planned on reading this one last week but never got around to it. Then my Netgalley queue jumped and this one got pushed further back. It is getting a lot of great early press but I just haven’t felt that tingle to crack it open yet, you know? I do need to get to it soon so hopefully after I’m done with Legendary.

  1. Interesting you got Legendary. I’m curious if you like it since I feel the same about Caraval. I won’t read Furyborn anymore; there’s some content in it that I’m not comfortable with but as readers are, we’re always curious of what other people think 🙂

    1. I have to admit, I read a little more of Legendary last night before bed and it already seems far better than Caraval. Caraval was Scarlett’s point of view and she annoyed the ever loving heck out of me. This one is from Tella’s POV and she at least has a little spunk to her personality. I mean, she is an idiot, but she is a high spirited idiot.

  2. Gah, you have so many ARCs of books I want to read. I liked (not loved) Caraval so I have been keeping an eye out for Legendary but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be on UK Netgalley. Ace of Shades is the same, it’s not on UK NetGalley so I can’t get my mitts on it, although I have to admit I was a bit more mixed in my views of Daughter of the Burning City.

    1. I still can’t figure out how I got Legendary. I wouldn’t have requested it and I looked and it is wish for only in the US right now, too, it seems. Really weird.
      I hate that they changed that most any books outside of the US are wishes now. Not fair to folks at all. And maybe you will like Ace of Shades since you weren’t thrilled with Daughter of the Burning City. You can’t even tell they are by the same writer. The styles just feel completely different.
