  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 November #1
    When Amaya saves Boon from drowning, she thinks his shiny gold coat buttons will pay her way out of servitude, but instead she escapes on her own and is drawn into his plans for revenge. They seem to be after the same people; however, Amaya soon realizes that one of the marks, a young lord named Cayo, may have more in common with her than expected. Sim, author of the Timekeeper series, creates a rough-and-tumble world of wealth, gambling, slavery, and family and power struggles that's populated by diverse, flawed characters caught in schemes largely inherited from their parents. Lower-middle-class Amaya, aka Silverfish, and upper-class Cayo collide as the result of a revenge plot, unearthing troubling discoveries about their families. Each chapter is introduced by quotes from the literature or mythology of various geopolitical entities and foreshadows what follows. The plot of this Count of Monte Cristo remix, first in a planned duology, hints at political unrest, but its main focus is on character introductions, world building, and adventure involving family ties, loyalty, and revenge. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
