Tarnished City by Vic James is the second book in the young adult fantasy Dark Gifts series From the title of the series to the intense book cover one should guess that this series is not all rainbows and sunshine but one that is incredibly dark and sometimes disturbing If at all possible I think Tarnished City got a little darker than Gilded Cage if that was possibleThe series takes place in a society in which the world is ruled by Euals who are aristocrats with magical gifts Everyone else are known as commoners and at some point during their lifetimes they have to serve the Euals for a period of ten years as their slaves Commoners can choose to serve at any point in their lives from 10 to 80 years oldIn Gilded Cage we met a family that when the youngest child turned ten the parents decided to sign the whole family up for their slave days to be completed together Luke s older sister Abi has arranged for the family to work together at a plantation owned by England s most powerful family of Euals But upon arrival the paperwork had been messed up and Luke is shipped off to a slave town separate from the rest of his familyNow this is a series that definitely needs to be read from the beginning of the first book as the story only continues on from where that book ended and probably wouldn t make much sense jumping into the middle Tarnished City however does have subtle reminders of what had been happening to remind readers where they had left off as the story picks up againFrom the very moment the series began a part of me is just so darn angry at the whole idea of forcing kidsteens into signing up for their slavery days without actually letting them voice their own choice Of course it would have to be done but the parents were able to put it off until they had built their life together so why take that choice away from their kidsOf course the whole society and the way it s set up comes into play in the overall plot to the series The point of view changes in the series between several different key characters mainly from the commoner family that had signed up and the Euals with the powers that they are involved with but now there have been added as the story has expanded even furtherWhile this one does have a bit of that middle book feel as it picked up from the first and left a bit of a cliffhanger at the end to lead into the second so I d rate it at 35 stars myself but it was still a solid addition moving the story forward I would definitely suggest too that this one is definitely for the mature readers as I mentioned earlier it is a extremely dark read and I m sure will only get intense in the next installmentI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

Summary Tarnished City Vic James å 4 Download Free download ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook å Vic James They know And as Silyen Jardine hungers for the forgotten Skill of the legendary Wonder King the country’s darkest hour approaches Freedom and knowledge both come at a cost So who will pay the price. 455 TARNISHED CITY is an amazing follow up to last year s GILDED CAGE In fact I think I liked this one just a little bit Even though I see this listed and shelved as YA it s much darker than most YA I ve tried which admittedly is not a lot because it s usually too angst y for me In this case however the author nixes a lot of the extraneous stuff and focuses on the characters and the intricately plotted story It took me a little while to get back into the flow it s been just over a year since I ve visited this world but once I did I was so happy to be there There s no real re cap which I appreciated I feel that if an author s characters are strong enough they should come back without my having to be reminded and these certainly did There s a big cast here and the characters refer to other characters using the names by which they know them sometimes resulting in 2 or 3 different names for a person depending upon the point of view at the timeI noted that a lot of what is going on in this book is going on in the real world right now Perhaps not slavery exactly those with no Skill must serve 10 years as a slave but classism against those born with no Skill and the increasingly outspoken attitudes and acceptance of those with racist views It comes all the way up to the sanction of violence against those who disagree or who dare to stand up against those in power I guess I m trying to say that it s obvious to me that the author knows what she s talking about as far as how the story relates to the world today and it s downright scary I feel like I needed to make these points but now that I have I want to say how much I loved this tale I loved the characters they re well drawn and oh so human They aren t perfect in fact many of them are downright horrible people but they re fun to read about The machinations and the conniving going on rival that in any adult fantasy that I ve read with the added bonus of not having to wait 5 years for the next book I say BRAVO Vic James You ve created a compelling fun and interesting world populated with deep complicated characters and I can t wait to come back to it once again Highly recommended Thanks to the publisher and to NetGalley for the e ARC of this book in exchange for my honest feedback This is it

I burn not shineActual rating 45 starsIn my review of the first book of this series I stated it had an uniue magic system a compelling narrative structure enthralling writing and an unguessable plot After such highly heaped praise I was hesitant to see how this would follow in its predecessor s strong footsteps It has also been a full year since I read the original and with such a complex plot worried I would be overwhelmed when returning to this world Within just a few pages I realised I need not have fearedThis provided the reader with a subtle refresher to world without the need of a dreaded info dump and continued to be as action orientated yet as intense in plot line as the initial book in this series This also followed on from the multitude of narratives of the former book with its large cast of characters and perspectives and introducing which furthered the reader s understanding of the rules governing this alternate realityWhilst still centrally focusing on just two families this gave a wider knowledge of the world at large and brought up interesting discussions of hierarchical class power and privilege These debates proved timeless and further fused the reader s interest to it Whilst still an interesting and uniuely created world this brought a degree of empathy to those suffering in it and also some subtle links to our own worldThis added density furthered my adoration for this series The depth of topic broached and the exciting direction the plot was taken leads me to expect even greater things from the next instalmentI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author Vic James and the publisher Pan Macmillan for this opportunity
