Ever since Khalif Kendrix was little, he has played his cards like a king. Labeled as gifted until he transforms into a rebel while in high school, seventeen-year-old Khalif shuns everything he has ever been taught, drops out of high school, and journeys down a dark path into the unknown.
Now a lost soul wandering through the shadows, Khalif is moving loafs and bringing home a few thousand a week. His mother is gone—brutually murdered during a weekday bible study by a white supremist. His father appears to be clueless about how Khalif is making a living, despite living in the same house with him. But everything changes one day when the feds bust five of his drug buddies. Now as Khalif unfurls a new plan to survive, he has no idea that he is about to be led in a direction he never could have imagined in his wildest dreams.
Sovereignty of Spades is the gripping tale of a street-smart kid on an unforgettable journey into the unknown where he hopes to eventually reach his destiny—and more importantly, his true potential.
