Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming anticipated releases!
This week I am excited for…
Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
Release: April 10, 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Synopsis via Goodreads: Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.
Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
Not only does this novel sound so mysterious, but it’s also something that i’ve never really seen in YA. It’s super grunge (which makes for really pleasing aesthetics) and seems like it will be full of adventure amidst an interesting new world.
I’m on the street team for this book and getting to see Amanda’s excitement for her story makes me 10x more thrilled for it’s release. I’m also hyped to read about my gang, the Scarhands! They are the smugglers who seem so bad ass and, besides them, there are two more gangs in the novel: the Doves and the Irons. We’ve all been having a blast making playlists online and even roasting each other on twitter which has definitely brought out all of our savage sides…
That’s all for today’s post! Feel free to let me know if you’ve heard of Ace of Shades and/or which book(s) you’re anticipating. Until next time,
Happy Reading! ♡
