Take a card. The price is your soul.

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.

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 con man, but he might just be the only person who can help her.

As their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless society, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city to uncover the truth.

And she'll need to play the game.

Review quote

'Utterly original. Amanda Foody has a wicked imagination. If you enjoy your fantasy on the darker side, then you will love Gomorrah!'
Stephanie Garber, Sunday Times bestselling author of Caraval.

'Wow! A dark and dangerous tale, a world like no other and heroism of the weirdest kind!'
New York Times bestselling author Tamora Pierce.

'Foody's stunning debut is full of velvety language, intricate worldbuilding, and a story that treads the fine line of horror and fantasy. This is the kind of read that makes your spine shiver, and your heart beat faster.'
Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

''House of the Rising Sun' meets Six of Crows in Ace of Shades. 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

'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.'
Claire Legrand, author of Winterspell
