Katey isn't your typical princess found in historical fiction and fantasy. She is mute. This makes for a uniquely written heroine. I love the fact that author I D Johnson chose to create a heroine with what some may view as an imperfection or disability. Katey's inability to speak serves as more of a gift than one would imagine.
When Katey discovers King Mathew is captive within the castle curiosity and kindness get the better of her and she visits the tortured and imprisoned King. Katey becomes Mathew's "angel" though Mathew truly leads to Katey's ultimate salvation.
"Deck of Cards" is an epic fictional adventure and romance. The story incorporates numerous Kings, Queens, realms and royal battles. Each of the four Kings featured in this story have a significant interest in Katey though some motives are purely political and wicked. This is a substantial novel whose characters, plots and sub-plots kept me fully engrossed in the pages. Historical romance readers will definitely enjoy!
The plot in this book is really complicated and there were a few times I was really surprised at what happened. I thought I had it figured out a couple of times and I was wrong. There was one thing that happens that was kind of predictable but the author did such a good job of telling that part of the story that it didn't detract from the book.
The main character, Princess Katey is mute for most of the book, which I thought might make it kind of hard to read, but it wasn't. In fact, I think I liked her more as a character because she had that major flaw. When she finally does talk, its heart stopping.
I have noticed, having read several of Johnson's books now that her characters are like real people. No one is perfect. You can relate to them. Even though I've never been a medieval princess, I understood where Katey was coming from.
There is no cliffhanger here, but there is room for another book and I hope Johnson writes it.
ID Johnson, I will be watching for more!
