The first in a steamy science fiction adventure series featuring a Brazilian tarot card reader and a Russian crime lord.
Year 2950. Humanity has survived devastating climate shifts and four world wars, coming out stronger and smarter than ever. Advanced technology is available to all, and enhancements to appearance, intelligence, and physical ability are commonplace.
In this future, Felicia Sevigny has built her fame reading the futures of others.
Alexei Petriv, the most dangerous man in the TriSystem, will trust only Felicia to read his cards. But the future she sees is darker than either of them could ever have imagined. A future that pits them against an all-knowing government, almost superhuman criminals, and something from Felicia's past that she could never have predicted, but that could be the key to saving or destroying them all.
"Cerveny's debut blends steamy sci-fi-fi with breathless intrigue and action, all set on a far-future Earth that's equal parts fascinating and terrifying."
-Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger and Breath of Earth
"Imaginative. Fans of romance in science fiction are going to love this!"

Stunted characters and weird pacing. For such a short story it lagged in several places. Intruiging concept though.
While the world-building in this story was certainly fascinating, I felt the plot was overwhelmed by the numerous mundane and cliched romance tropes, particularly the possessive alpha male hero and the female protagonist who has no practically no agency. I felt the story would have been much stronger if it had struck a better balance between the science fiction elements and the romance elements. Unfortunately, the cliched romance made it pretty difficult to focus on much else, and the rest of the plot fell very flat for me. [NOTE: I received an ARC copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley.]
I found the book entertaining and have bought the second one already.
