Daily Review: The Lady Tarot by Juli D. Revezzo
April 10, 2019
What the cards foretell may be real, after all.
1793: Having escaped the Reign of Terror, Emilie Maigny took refuge in England, trying to come to grips with the life and loss she left behind. When her brother, Sinjon, returns, a terrifying evil swoops down upon her. Nightmares plague her now, providing strange clues … but to what?
Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards’ hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be–to his life and Emilie’s survival when terrible evil strikes.
A Cypher is all Emilie needs, but what is it? Is Linton the key? He may charm her heart–and he may be her only salvation.

By Katherina Gerlach
A wonderfully poetic read.
I liked the way the author managed to make the characters come to life.
The magical elements were woven in so effortlessly that I wished they were real.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes emotional reads.

LADY OF THE TAROT, Juli D. Revezzo’s Gothic isn’t just your ordinary, run of the mill, traditional Gothic. It’s so much more. I had the pleasure of reading an Advance copy of this book.
Set in the time of the Reign of Terror, France in 1793 was the last place the aristocracy wanted to be. Emilie Maigny and most of her family find a way, through the aid of a mysterious British naval captain, out of Paris and to the safe shores of London, England, and her grandmother’s home there. Life should have been more peaceful away from the blood and guillotines of Paris.
But not all goes as planned. It wouldn’t be a Gothic if it did. Dark forces are at work against Emilie and her family.
Nightmares haunt Emilie’s dreams, leaving her shaken and afraid. The dreams are connected to tarot card imagery. Did they mean something? And why tarot cards?
And then her brother, Sinjon shows up. But he isn’t the same brother she’d last seen before coming to London. He’d grown sullen and withdrawn. What had happened? What was he hiding?
Linton Morrison is a well to do young man, set to take over the parliamentary office of his Uncle Samuel. But it isn’t what he wants.
Linton is a card reader…a tarot card reader. Filled with unrest and undecided about his future, he didn’t see the cards leading him to Emilie Maigny.
When they meet, destiny plays its own tarot card…The Lovers. Was it the tarot that brought them together? Or was it the supernatural evil that threatened to destroy all who stood in its way?
Yes, LADY OF THE TAROT is much more than just a Gothic. Revezzo has added a terrifying mix, creating a tale that grabs you from page one, skillfully weaving a nightmarish finish where love and tarot cards are the only things left standing.
Let’s hope there are more books featuring Emilie Maigny and Linton Morrison coming our way soon.
Add this one to your permanent library. You’ll want to read it again.
