Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
“Now, as she held her breath and desperately searched the faces of strangers around her, she felt that she was more broken than not. One exhale, one sob, and all her pieces would shatter.”

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
“She was the girl who’d come afraid to the city that could smell your fear. She’d faced the witch. She’d poisoned the wolf. She’d strolled into the land of death with her head held high and left it a lord. She was an impossible player in a fixed game, the only person not playing to win.”
