Eserkaln’s imperfect protagonist (Thomas) remains likeable enough to compel the reader onward in a tale familiar enough to generate suspense and keep us turning pages, but just as we’re given points that feel familiar and are certain of our bearing, Eserkaln presents us instead with alternative outcomes that are equal parts original and entertaining.
Thomas’ journey, sans the Devil, isn’t that different from the one many of us find ourselves traveling. As one character points out, Thomas has “spent more time fretting than living,” taking much of his “gift” for granted. Like the best speculative fiction, “Cards with the Devil” begs many philosophical questions, but to its credit never seeks to answer those questions in a way detrimental to the narrative.
All in all, “Cards with the Devil” is a novel that might have found a home on Rod Serling’s bookshelf. Fans of speculative fiction the likes of Joe Hill will feel at home with “Cards with the Devil.”
