Review
Following Ace of Shades (2018), Enne and Levi delve deeply into the politics of New Reynes. The brush with the Phoenix Club leaves Enne vowing to avenge her mother and Levi determined to rebuild himself into legend—but first, they both must contend with the Augustine crime Family. Vianca Augustine orders Enne to help secure the election of the monarchist candidate in the senate election and to embrace her new street lord notoriety as Séance in starting her own street gang. Rookie Enne insists on doing it her way, maintaining her prim decorum and recruiting fellow girls (like gothic-styled Grace), which results in female friendship and not-terribly-subtle empowerment themes. Levi’s been offered a way out from under Vianca’s thumb and secretly works to support her estranged son’s candidacy—at the price of keeping his distance from Enne (so that Vianca can’t use them against each other—though it frees him up for a dalliance with handsome Narinder), sending third narrator Jac, a recovering addict, into drug dens owned by the Torren Family. The dizzying number of moving plot parts results in a cascade of alliances, betrayals, and reversals as the sprawling cast has romances of various sexual orientations but also friendships and other bonds—and not all bonds survive. Enne, Jac, Grace, and the crime Families are White; Levi and Narinder are brown-skinned; the supporting cast has a range of skin tones. Enthralling magic-and-crime escapism.
