I like the fact that Ernie doesn’t become a magical expert overnight as it seems to happen in A LOT of other books where people find themselves having abilities. Also that she learns the rules as she goes. All the characters are interesting as well, along with the world building and plot, which kept my interest. Let’s not forget the Spartan race training is the reason she is so athletic. Didn’t even know that was a thing but I like that she isn’t just randomly athletically inclined. Got left with a lot of questions that I hope get addressed in the next book, which I fully intend to read! * I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Netgalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.*

My Rating: 4.5 Stars Who knew a partial deck of cards would have Ernestine Terwilliger caught up in a battle for her life among supernatural card sharks known as the Immortal Dealers. No, this isn’t a tale of gambling in Vegas because Ernie will be gambling for her life and the lives of those she loves and no one has told her the rules. Sarah Fine’s THE SERPENT is fresh, fast and furious fun as one quirky heroine finds herself caught up in a world where the deck is stacked against her, and her eccentric mother and absent father knew all about it. Can she trust Gabe, another Immortal Dealer to have her back or is it every Dealer for him/herself? Quirky fun, magical cards and a villain who wants his cards back…Ernie must navigate a world where just having a poker face isn’t going to cut it. The cards have power, but first she must make friends with the deck. A completely new take on the supernatural, the groundwork has been laid for what looks to be a fun new series. Sarah Fine’s latest is sure to be another great, light escape-from-reality series. I received a complimentary ARC edition from 47North!

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.

Interesting and unique world! Please don’t let my four-star review scare you off from trying this book. Not only was the world-building unique, it was very well-written, hard to put down and very interesting. I love when I find a new author in urban fantasy which is my favorite genre, and I think this author definitely fits the bill of an author to recommend. My only holdbacks were that I had hard time connecting with a couple of the characters and sometimes had a hard time understanding the mechanics of the cards. However, neither one of these two things were a huge detriment to my enjoyment with the other elements of the book. I always mostly judge what I read on if I would want to read the next book, and I definitely do want to find out what’s going to happen next. And, to see if I can get a handle on the cards! Highly recommend! I was provided a complimentary copy of the e-book which I reviewed voluntarily.
