This short story was a great read.... Deeper meanings abound. So while you read this twisted tale, learn the lesson it tries to teach. And not just the one about avoiding graveyards after dark. ~Melissa Chelsey--Writings, Musings & Other Such Nonsense...

As far as short stories goes, this one has it all.
(I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.)
The story's strongest point is probably its imagery. I was able to easily make a mental picture of the creepy demons and scenery, but there wasn't so much description that it bogged down the story. The actual plot felt like something you would see in a classical myth, where the hero has to face riddles and challenges from demons using nothing but what he knows. I thought it gave the story sort of a timelessness, like it could be much older than it actually is, which I liked.
The story moves along quickly, which could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you prefer in a story. On one hand, there's no point where the story starts to drag, so it's easy to get through and it feels like a quick read all the way through. On the other hand, I thought that it could have benefited from slowing down a bit to build more suspense. The new events and revelations come so fast that there isn't much time to wonder about what's going on or what something means before you find out. Still, House of Cards was a quick, fun, and creepy read. I recommend it.

Revezzo has a great imagination that takes readers on a twisted ride. House of Cards if filled with imagery, great characters, and wonderful description. There was never once while reading this short story that I felt the details were lacking.
House of Cards is set during the French Revolution. Fearing for their son's life, Sinjon's parents urge him to run. Being wealthy in France isn't a pleasure when facing down execution because of your rich bloodline. Sinjon tries fleeing from France, but finds himself facing a bigger threat. Sinjon must use his wit to weave his way through this new world he has been subjected to in order to survive.
House of Cards is a must read for those who like action, suspense, and a true thrill.
However this story also had some special meaning hidden within, in the form of Tarot cards. How you read the Tarot depends entirely on you and your knowledge of the craft. Not everyone listens to their instincts when it comes to reading Tarot. You simply cannot just glance at the image and judge the card by that image. Deeper meanings abound. So while you read this twisted tale, learn the lesson it tries to teach. And not just the one about avoiding graveyards after dark.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story; a nice offering to whet your whistle while awaiting her next book release. The story is a tad on the dark side -- and better for it. I've missed stories in which demons are scary and to be dreaded. I'm glad to see them coming back into the light -- er, so to speak.
Although it felt a little too fast paced (I find this with most short stories), I still felt in tune with the story from start to finish.
I really wished there was more to this book, and I mean that in a good way. I would love to see this develope into a full length novel, with even more twists and turns, and even more ghastly creatures of the underworld.
All in all, it was a superb, quick read that sent a shiver down my spine.
