dear LORD! That is a horrendously poorly designed cover. It hurts my eyes! *interest kinda declines*
I don't think I've ever rooted for a mid-series cover change before the first book is even out.
A little strange, but not bad. It gave me Alice in Wonderland vibes, except with Tarot card characters, which I thought made it a fun and unique story. I've never read anything with that theme before. I liked the relationships Anna had with The Fool, The Magician, The Hermit, and everyone she met along the way. The only thing that I wasn't sold on was the romance, but that's my own romance-levels-in-books preference, and not really something that takes away from the story.
Synopsis sounds great, cover is an utter let down. Honestly, publishers can just start paying me and I'll make better ones lol
I really thought I was going to like this because the plot is very intriguing but sadly this book wasn’t for me. The story felt kinda of rushed.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book.I went into it not expecting much, but don't let the cover fool you. This is a fast, fluffy, fun, and very imaginative book that I greatly enjoyed! I would say my rating is more towards the 3.5 range, and I really wish there were half star options here.
The author takes us on a tour through the world of Tarot. The tarot deck has literally been turned into four different lands. The MC escapes Pentacles to get away from her stepfather, a weak king who is fri ...more
A fantastic read and a very clever idea. Turning the Tarot into different worlds is a brilliant idea. (Let's hope it helps me remember when I'm trying to learn them...)
I liked Anna, although I thought she recovered remarkable quickly from her sixteen years locked in a tower and showed very few after effects; a good sleep and a nice meal seemed to take care of everything. I'll accept 'magic' as the excuse there, though.
A brilliant read, and I'll be looking forward to reading more in the series.
This book was a delight which is saying something because fantasy is not usually my genre. I've always been intrigued by tarot cards though, so was thrilled when I got an advanced copy of this baby. I'll definitely be recommending it for purchase for my library. Full review to come!
