This is an intriguing story of revenge delivered in wonderful prose. Although this may not be in my usual reading genre, I very much enjoyed the story. I kept coming back to it, interested to see what happened next, what would become of our villain, and how it all came together. How all the major players fit in together kept me reading as the plot was revealed gradually as the story went on. Mix all of that in with the use of tarot, a hint of romance and unexpected twists and you have a fantasy that is different in a good way.
In a society that could be ours, or not, in a time that was, or not, there hunkers a stone castle. Inside is Bronwyn, a woman ruined, a woman with a wooden leg. Before her lays a tarot deck able to manipulate destiny.
Somewhere in the cold dark halls another stalks in stealth, stripped of life, a man who waves crystals over a scarred table. Zanderin is a rogue, a cad, and a supreme sorcerer. He loves the ruthless witch, at least he did.
The cards are dealt, the conflict begins, karma rides toward them in a swift carriage.
This is Tinsal, and this is cosmic vengeance.
