Publisher's Summary

The last member of a murdered House tries to protect his ward from forced marriage to a monster while uncovering clues to his own tortured past.

The Tarot Sequence imagines a modern-day Atlantis off the coast of Massachusetts, governed by powerful Courts based on the traditional Tarot deck. 

Rune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Throne, is backed into a fight of high court magic and political appetites in a desperate bid to protect his ward, Max, from a forced marital alliance with the Hanged Man.

Rune's resistance will take him to the island's dankest corners, including a red light district made of moored ghost ships; a surreal skyscraper farm; and the floor of the ruling Convocation, where a gathering of Arcana will change Rune's life forever.

Amazing second book

This the second book in the series and is absolutely amazing. A lot of people talk about how this series is dark and I'll admit that there are parts that are dark, especially when they talk of the past. Though its filled with humor and laughter as well. While not going into specifics this book is amazing there is action, mystery and characters that you grow to love. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good book about magic or urban fantasy. Cant wait for the next one.

Great Read

I love the story and character development of the characters. I love reading Rune coming into himself. I loved the slow burn of the Rune and Addam romance. I love the plot intrigue, magical inventiveness and world building behind the story. The amount of tactile details and the narration abilities by Josh Hurley was simply amazing. Every character had distinct voices and I knew who was talking every time.

An excellent sequel

just as good as the first volume of the series. Once again story is great without being overly complicated the characters are well drawn and the narration is first-rate. I especially like that the gay characters are part of the story instead of the story. Looking forward to the next volume

Really liked the first book, Loved the second.

I really liked the first book, I loved the second. I was engaged within the first 10 minutes and found it hard to put down. The fantasy world of magic is complex and flawed enough to feel real. Each of the characters has an interesting if not tortured past that brings them together nicely.

Josh Hurley does an excellent job.

A good series maturing well

This series started off a bit slow in book 1, but it's paying off with the growth of the storyline. The plot is sorta/kinda urban fantasy, but the world is unique and the story is going places I can't entirely predict. The series is unfolding its main characters slowly, revealing more and more of the shadowy corners. I'm pretty excited for the next in the series--this was not a cliff hanger, but the story has an obvious future.

This is a book I wouldn't mind re-reading on paper -- or listening to the audiobook again.
