What a great short story!
Sinjon has to use his knowledge of the Tarot to escape the clutches of a hag who puts him on trial for things he didn’t do. He needs to answer correctly three riddles to be set free or face his fate. When you find out why he is on trial and what his fate is if he fails, it is a shocker. You can’t help but cheer him on as he faces each challenge.
House of cards is the perfect read if you only have a little spare time and need to read, (like a break at work) That’s when I read it. It had me thinking about it all afternoon. It is so well detailed, that you can almost feel, see, and smell what Sinjon does.
There is a lesson to be learned, can you figure it out?
