One woman is in a world of otherworldly trouble—and she’s going to have to bet her life to save humankind.

Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger has put her dreams aside to look after her eccentric mother. Case in point: saving her from a mysterious stranger who’s just stormed the terrified woman’s antique store wearing a rattlesnake tattoo, leveling threats, and brandishing the weirdest deck of cards Ernie’s ever seen.

When Ernie grabs some of the cards and runs, she’s launched into a world she never knew existed—one her mother may know more about than she’s revealing. With a handful of stolen cards, Ernie has just been made an unwilling player in a game of good versus evil. But she’s not even playing with a full deck, and its original owner is more than happy to kill to get his cards back.

Suddenly Ernie’s matching wits and plays with the supernatural Immortal Dealers, who can raise empires, damn souls, and shape the world’s destiny. It’s up to Ernie to defeat the most brutal member of their order. And if her roguish new ally isn’t bluffing, he can help. The mystery is all in the cards, and to save her life—and humanity—Ernie had better learn how to deal.

Highly original, unexpectedly twisty turny, The Serpent is a great new novel to enjoy!

Fine developed a world where there is no fate but a strategic card game where you and the fate of all man kind hangs in the balance of which cards are played and when. The only problem...the dealers who decide which cards are played are a crazed, unpredictable band of misfits. The battle for who controls the deck of cards is precarious to say the least.

I found The Serpent a fast paced, new and exciting reality break.

I received this ARC copy of The Serpent from 47North. This is my honest and voluntary review. The Serpent is set for publication July 24, 2018.
