Summary
When Amaya rescues a mysterious stranger from drowning, she fears her rash actions have earned her a longer sentence on the debtor ship where she's been held captive for years. Instead, the man she saved offers her unimaginable riches and a new identity, setting Amaya on a perilous course through the coastal city-state of Moray, where old-world opulence and desperate gamblers collide. Amaya wants one thing: revenge against the man who ruined her family and stole the life she once had. But the more entangled she becomes in this game of deception-and as her path intertwines with the son of the man she's plotting to bring down-the more she uncovers about the truth of her past. And the more she realizes she must trust no one?
Packed with high-stakes adventure, romance, and dueling identities, this gender-swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo is the first novel in an epic YA fantasy duology, perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Sabaa Tahir, and Leigh Bardugo.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Amaya saves Boon from drowning, she thinks his shiny gold coat buttons will pay her way out of servitude, but instead she escapes on her own and is drawn into his plans for revenge. They seem to be after the same people; however, Amaya soon realizes that one of the marks, a young lord named Cayo, may have more in common with her than expected. Sim, author of the Timekeeper series, creates a rough-and-tumble world of wealth, gambling, slavery, and family and power struggles that's populated by diverse, flawed characters caught in schemes largely inherited from their parents. Lower-middle-class Amaya, aka Silverfish, and upper-class Cayo collide as the result of a revenge plot, unearthing troubling discoveries about their families. Each chapter is introduced by quotes from the literature or mythology of various geopolitical entities and foreshadows what follows. The plot of this Count of Monte Cristo remix, first in a planned duology, hints at political unrest, but its main focus is on character introductions, world building, and adventure involving family ties, loyalty, and revenge.--Cindy Welch Copyright 2019 Booklist"
