Author: Amanda Foody
Publisher: Inkyard Press
Publication Date: April 30, 2019
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…
Or die as legends.
Why am I excited?
I absolutely loved Ace of Shades. It has been one of my top books of the year and I love the world of New Reynes that Amanda Foody has created. Also Enne is my favourite because she turned into such an amazing character! I’ve heard that there is a girl gang in the sequel, so I’m super pumped for that because it’s going to be hilarious and completely badass. The ending to the first book was an insane cliffhanger as well and I NEED to know what happens so badly.
Have you read Ace of Shades? Are you excited for the sequel? Let me know in the comments!
