"The relationship between Enne and Levi simmers, and dangers pile up to an exciting climax. Readers will eagerly wish for a sequel that will allow them to revisit New Reynes." -Kirkus Reviews "Foody's novel is a magical tale of introspection, romance, and self-determination." -Publishers Weekly "Thieves, rogues, and shady characters have always fascinated me, and so I enjoyed my dive into the morally ambiguous world of New Reynes." -New York Times bestselling author Cinda Williams Chima on Ace of Shades "Ace of Shades has it all-incredible worldbuilding, cinematic set-pieces, heart-pounding pacing and unpredictable, deliciously messy characters. Foody's impressive and ambitious vision for the City of Sin will linger in my senses for a long time. An utter delight." -New York Times bestselling author Claire Legrand on Ace of Shades
