    Finn Voy is a professional thief and faceshifter: she can look at another person's face and take on their exact features, assuming different identities in a matter of moments. With no family or ties, she roams freely from one city to the next, using her magic to keep herself fed and safe. Prince Alfehr is the reluctant heir to the Castallan throne after his beloved brother is murdered. Finn and Alfie meet at a deadly magical card game and find they can help each other. When Alfie learns there's a chance to bring his brother back to life using forbidden magic, he takes it—and disastrously releases an ancient power that can easily destroy the world. What makes Motayne's debut title singular and special is that her kingdom is Latinx, with brown-skinned, curly-haired people and Spanish sprinkled throughout. It's refreshing and wonderful to see a diverse fantasy world reflecting Latinx cultures. Cinematic, plentiful action as well as intriguing protagonists will pull in many a fantasy reader, and the richly detailed world will keep them reading. Grades 8-11. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
