Top Customer Reviews
It's not a bad deck, and for some folks, i think it might make a beautiful and novel addition to ones collection. It's very unconventional, and uses Fire related themes in each of its cards. The result is interesting, but at times it doesnt really feel like a true tarot.
So i'll lay out some pros and cons.
* The imagery in this deck borrows from a host of multicultural themes, and as such makes a great vehicle for learning about beliefs and ideas from communities outside of ones own orbit, and outside of accepted tarot conventions.
*The artwork is very skillfully rendered.
*The author expands the ideas in each card in some very novel ways.
*Being such an unconventional deck, I find it hard to see a strong relationship between Pips and their meanings. The pips are portrayed in purely narrative form, with little or no suite imagery.
Sometimes those narratives really seem to fall far away from the accepted meanings in each card. They seem more like cards in which a narrative in taking place, but one only tenuously applicable to the tarot.
So, as much as I hate to do it, i would have to give this deck a very mediocre 3.
