BOOK REVIEW: THE HANDS OF TAROT by S.M. Blooding


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. SM will be awarding a Tarot Doll of their choice to a randomly drawn commenter (US/Canada Only) during the tour More information: http://www.smblooding.com/ht1-order-tarot-doll-autographed-book/.


She killed his father.

She imprisoned and beat him.

And now she thinks he’s her trophy.

Synn El’Asim will do almost anything to prove her wrong. But he’s only proving her right.

Queen Nix awakened his Mark of power and inducted him into the House of Wands. She knew what she was doing. The son of the two most powerful Families standing against her is the ultimate prize.

What she didn’t take into consideration was that maybe he was too strong for her. Maybe.

The Families aren’t. They’ve been weakened, and it’ll take a lot more than one young man with a powerful Mark to take on the Hands of Tarot.

SM Blooding is a new author to me, but this is definitely not the last book I'll read by her. Synn El'Asim is a powerful character--the reader sees him grow from a young man who has not yet come into his power to a strong man who is courageous enough to fight for what he believes in--his family and his people.

The world building Ms. Blooding does is nothing short of remarkable. A world composed of flying ships, ice worlds, danger, and intrigue.

I look forward to reading the next installment in the series to see how Ms. Blooding plans to get Synn out of the predicament she leaves him in. Nice cliffhanger!
