Description

Diamond City is an action-packed young adult fantasy by debut author Francesca Flores about a girl who perseveres through poverty|violence|and loss to achieve a future for herself. Good things don't happen to girls who come from nothing. . . unless they risk everything. At twelve years old|Aina Solís was pulled off of the streets she slept on and trained to be one of the most feared assassins in Sumerand|a kingdom founded by immigrants and built by magic—and in recent years transformed by an industrial revolution. When Aina is given the most lucrative and dangerous job of her career—killing a wealthy industrialist named Kouta—she knows its a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to leave her impoverished roots in her past once-and-for-all: the payout is enough to free her from under her boss Kohls thumb. But when the job goes wrong and Kouta escapes|she is left without a penny to her name and in the crosshairs of Kohl|who is eager to show the world what happens to those that fail him. With Kohl on her heels|Aina is running out of time to find Kouta and finish what she started. But the closer she gets to killing him|the more she begins to ask the questions assassins are never meant to ask: who wants Kouta dead? And why? In a city full of half-constructed subway tunnels|hidden magical dens|secret markets|and wolf-sized spiders|Aina discovers a conspiracy that could rewrite her citys history and—if it isnt stopped—sink her country into a catastrophic war.
