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 and a new identity, setting Amaya on a perilous course through the coastal city-state of Moray, where old-world opulence and desperate gamblers collide. Amaya wants one thing: revenge against the man who ruined her family and stole the life she once had. But the more entangled she becomes in this game of deception-and as her path intertwines with the son of the man she's plotting to bring down-the more she uncovers about the truth of her past. And the more she realizes she must trust no one?

"Narrator Maria Liatis immerses listeners in a gender-reversed retelling of the classic COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO. It's a story packed with revenge, desperation, and conflicting loyalties. Amaya has escaped from a prison ship and is now ensconced in the mysterious city-state of Moray. Liatis's portrayal of Amaya allows listeners to feel instead of just hear her lust for retribution. The tone used to reflect Amaya's drive and dedication is seamless, and smooth transitions between male and female characters maintain clarity during the story's periodic shifts in point of view. From beginning to end, Liatis keeps listeners glued to their headphones as this epic story twists and turns. J.O. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
