3.6/5 Goodreads

When Amaya rescues a mysterious stranger from drowning, she fears her rash actions have earned her a longer sentence on the debtor ship where she's been held captive for years. Instead, the man she saved offers her unimaginable riches, a new identity, and the promise of retribution against Kamon Mercado, the powerful merchant who ruined Amaya's family and stole the life she once had. Cayo Mercado, heir to his father's empire, is well acquainted with the grit beneath the grandeur of Moray. In this opulent coastal city-state, where the corrupt Slum King pockets gold from desperate gamblers and deadly ash fever spreads like rot, Cayo is desperate to shake his disrepu- table past. But when his sister falls ill, Cayo will do anything to save her life—even if it means making a deal with the Slum King. As Amaya and Cayo become entangled in a dangerous game of deception-one of them set on protecting the Mercado family at any cost, and the other set on destroy- ing it—they find themselves unexpectedly drawn to one another. But the more Amaya discovers about her past, the more she realizes she must trust no one. . . The first novel in a sweeping fantasy duology, this gender-swapped retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo is packed with high-stakes adventure, romance, dueling identities, and breathtaking betrayals, all brilliantly woven together by acclaimed author Tara Sim.
