  • Intriguing Prequel to a new series

    A very fast paced story about Valentina, a witch, takinga test to become a keeper of The Swords (Tarot cards). I found ithe story hard to follow, I will definetly read at least the first book " The Hanged Maiden" hoping everything will get clearer. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Splendid & intriguing

    This prequel is a splendid start to the new reverse harem series “Rise of the Ash Gods” it has an intriguing well-written plot with interesting characters. There is: a young female witch (Valentina) hoping for a guardian position, some twists & turns, intrigue, family issues, friendship, tests, various gods, anger, self-doubt, determination, astral projection, confusion, verbal conflict, warnings, surprises & a tantalizing glimpse of the next book in the series. This prequel was an enjoyable read & I am waiting with great anticipation for the next book in the series.

  • Good

    A good beginning to this series. A very interesting tale and characters. Valentina De Rossi has studied her whole life hoping to one day become the High Keeper and now that the day has arrived she finds herself doubting her ability to past the Keeper test. The wicked little voice in her head that has been slowly tempting her down the wrong path is now coming to light, but will Val be strong enough to force it back. This was an excellent ending to keep us coming back for more. I can't wait to read what happens next.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • No Wonder She Feared the Test !!

    Valentina De Rossi is a witch, at the moment frustrated while studying. She tosses her book to the floor once again, picks it up to return it to her desk, then takes deep breaths to calm down. This test tomorrow was vitally important. If she passed, she would become a Keeper. Valentina came from a long line of witches and Keepers of the Spades, born to protect the mysteries of the Tarot. She could not let her family down. But to a person for whom predictability is essential, the random approach to studying for this test was driving her crazy! As the test began, Val felt as if she floated out of her physical body. She rose, went through the ceiling, and saw mountains which she decided to float to. She had used one of her mother’s prohibited floating spells in secret, so she was familiar with guiding her flight. Only this time, she began to fall downward through the ground and to the center of the Earth. She was out of control. She hovered above what looked like grass, and 3 golden drops fell on her. She grabbed something sharp as she fell but didn’t get cut. It was a sword she had grabbed, and she remembered that the golden drops were ‘yods’. She seemed to be inside the scene shown on the Ace of Swords, but the crown was nowhere to be seen. She couldn’t answer the question of the first card, the Ace. To get to the King, she would have to pass the tests of each of the thirteen cards before it. If she didn’t answer the Ace’s question “Who is she?” then the Head Keeper would remove her from the trance and she would fail the test. The voice in her head gave her the name ‘Ravenna’, she said it, and began to fall again. Each test of the card seemed to bring pain and confusion. But without passing whatever the test was, she could not proceed through to the next one. She would fail. The tests were not necessarily demanding logic – it seemed mostly to be her gut reaction to how she should proceed. And as she went with her feelings, doors and alternatives seemed to open up. Perhaps that was what this test was for? To learn to rely on your instincts and trust them to lead you to safety? She had to make a decision now or she would fall unconscious and perhaps not survive this time and who knows where she will end up or who she might meet! I felt like I was at such a disadvantage not knowing anything about Tarot cards. I had to Google each one to see the pictures on the cards and learn a little more about them. But this was a fascinating prequel, taking us on a journey by means of Val’s test to understand what’s going on. I would definitely recommend reading this prequel before you venture into the actual series. I think it sets some valuable groundwork for the reader. Enjoy!

    Thanks for your feedback!
