THE FIRST BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN
FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.
One woman is in a world of otherworldly trouble—and she’s going to have to bet her life to save humankind.
Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger has put her dreams aside to look after her eccentric mother. Case in point: saving her from a mysterious stranger who’s just stormed the terrified woman’s antique store wearing a rattlesnake tattoo, leveling threats, and brandishing the weirdest deck of cards Ernie’s ever seen.
When Ernie grabs some of the cards and runs, she’s launched into a world she never knew existed—one her mother may know more about than she’s revealing. With a handful of stolen cards, Ernie has just been made an unwilling player in a game of good versus evil. But she’s not even playing with a full deck, and its original owner is more than happy to kill to get his cards back.
Suddenly Ernie’s matching wits and plays with the supernatural Immortal Dealers, who can raise empires, damn souls, and shape the world’s destiny. It’s up to Ernie to defeat the most brutal member of their order. And if her roguish new ally isn’t bluffing, he can help. The mystery is all in the cards, and to save her life—and humanity—Ernie had better learn how to deal.

My Musings :
I haven't read any good urban fantasy and paranormal books in a while. The reason is that I found that the books were kind of repetitive after a while. That doesn't mean that I didn't any gems. I do love some of the series I found but it was rare so I had taken a break from it. What prompted me to pick up this book was the blurb - especially the mention of cards. I didn't know how the author would play it but I was really intrigued after a long time.
Did the author do justice to the premise? Yes, absolutely! I really enjoyed delving into the world she created with her unique look on the way fate is dealt using cards. The pages were packed with non stop fast paced action from the get go. The way Ernie is exposed to the world and the way she reacts to it is very easy to read. I loved that she is a strong female lead. And add in the other characters, I had a fun time exploring the book.
I really wish the romance angle would develop in the future books. Another thing I would love to know more about the world the author has created. It is very interesting! I look forward to continuing the series.
My rating : 4.5/5
