So I should be studying for my advanced Calculus midterm, but the Irons only have a few days left to earn points for this round, so I have to do this now. This tag was originally created by Min from Min and Her Books for the Doves, and question 4 was modified for the Irons by Amber from The Literary Pheonix, who also tagged me. Well without further ado, let’s get on with the tag!
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!
Weep from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. A city that had its name stolen previously plagued by gods certainly has quite the 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!
I never know what I’m supposed to call them, but the main six from Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. I love them all so much and still think of them often despite having read Six of Crows a year ago.
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.
This is kind of cheating, since they’re playing for a wish rather than their lives, but I’m going to go with A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi.
The Irons are a gang of cheats… What is your favorite character that tricks and sneaks around in order to get what they need?
Nahri from The City of the Brass by S. A. Chakraborty starts the book as a con woman.
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.
Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey. I tried to re-read it last year and it really wasn’t as good as grade 8 me remembered.
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!
Eelyn from Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. That’s all I’ll say, since the book isn’t out for a few months.
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?
I hated Mehmed in Now I Rise by Kiersten White.
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?
By a single day, Sorina from Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody is the main character looking for me rather than Eelyn from Sky in the Deep. Sorina doesn’t seem to be very good at uncovering mysteries, so I’m not sure how I’ll fair.
That’s it for the Irons version of the Ace of Shades book tag. I don’t know which Irons haven’t been tagged yet, so I’m not explicitly tagging anyone. Feel free to do this tag if it interests you, whether or not you’re an Iron. Also, click over to the Irons Blog to see the other Irons’ answer.
