I loved getting to dive into this copy! I'm so glad I got an email from the publisher!
So this is one of those that you need to consider the title when you look t the cover. The feel of the cover is a take on a tarot card. So for me, it worked really well and didn't deter me from reading. I know it feels a bit thrown together, but it is very worth diving into. I was so much more from The Fool and The Magician!
This author took and idea and went for it. She took the idea of Tarot and brought it to life.
Anna has lived her life in a tower. It is all she knows. When she is set to leave the tower a series of events lead to the King wanting her death. The man she thought was her father is not and from that moment on her life spirals in way we don't see coming.
See your favorite tarot cards come to life in an adventure that you will thoroughly enjoy. I hope we get more in this world. I would love to know more about some of the others in this world!
Anna was never supposed to exist. Born of a forbidden union between the Queen and the tyrannical King’s archnemesis, Anna is forced to live out her days isolated in the Tower, with only her mentors and friends the Hermit, the Fool, and the Magician to keep her company. To pass the time, Anna imagines unique worlds populated by creatives and dreamers—the exact opposite of the King’s land of fixed fates and rigid rules—and weaves them into four glorious tapestries.
But on the eve of her sixteenth birthday and her promised release from the Tower, Anna discovers her true lineage: She’s the daughter of Marco, a powerful magician, and the King is worried that his magical gifts are starting to surface in Anna. Fearing for her life, Anna flees the Tower and finds herself in Cups, a lush, tropical land full of all the adventure, free-spiritedness, and creativity she imagined while weaving.
Anna thinks she’s found paradise in this world of beachside parties, endless food and drink, and exhilarating romance. But when the fabric of Cups begins to unravel, Anna discovers that her tapestries are more than just decoration. They’re the foundation for a new world that she is destined to create—as long as the terrors from the old world don’t catch up with her first.
