Ace of Shades

Foody, A. (2018). Ace of Shades. Toronto: Harlequin Teen.

Enne’s mother, Lourdes, told her that if she wasn’t home in two months, then to count her as dead. So naturally, after four months of waiting, Enne leaves her peaceful town of30238163 Bellamy and travels to New Reynes, the so called City of Sin, in search of her mother. Her mother told her to visit Mr. Levi Glaisyer if she was ever in New Reynes, so Enne’s first mission is to find Levi. But when she does find Levi, she figures out that he’s an Iron Lord, the leader of a gang in New Reynes, and a con man. Confused as to why her mother told her to see him, but being dragged deeper and further into the trouble surrounding her mother and Levi, Enne is forced to work with Levi to figure out where her mother is. Levi has his own bucket of problems as well, as he has to find 10,000 volts (the currency of New Reynes) in ten days in order to stay alive, and the promise of volts from Enne if they find Lourdes is a last ditch attempt to stay alive by Levi. As Enne and Levi grow closer and as the plot gets deeper and much more dangerous, Enne and Levi must learn to work together and fight to stay alive in a city that only wants them dead.

To be frank, reader, you’d be better off not visiting the city at all. – The City of Sin, a Guidebook: Where to Go and Where Not To
