Different suits were known for having different abilities. Hearts could seduce just about everyone, Diamonds had the use of their magic and Spades could shift their appearance at will. Clubs had a little magic, attributable to the magical water supply of their region, and they trained the some of the best warriors. Her family's numbers made up a whole suit, yes that's correct, she had ten brothers and sisters. Being the youngest wasn't conducive to any special treatment, which is why she got lumbered with all the worst jobs.
The land of Vanatus is a magical place full of magical animals and beings. A land divided into four kingdoms originally run by the four greatest mages, who were effectively the aces of each suit. Each differing in main abilities and level of magic they took control of the four major regions of Vanatus. As they aged they chose the four families, one of each suit, that began to take over the main running of the country. Since each region came with different abundance the suits were mostly determined by their regions. What wasn't locally available could be traded for with what ever the differing regions produced in surplus.
The new years celebrations are followed by the yearly meeting of the royal families, where once again relations were attempted to be renewed to keep the country in peace. Other than a few of Rose's snide remarks, for which she seemingly lacked a suitable filter, nothing could be afforded to upset the fragile balance. Which is probably why something would inevitably come about that day. None other than an enormous red dragon which would still three children from the castle whilst the eldest twelve of each suit suppered. Had it not been for Rose's over indulgance in her first attempts with alcohol she'd not have been in a position to witness it. Meaning she was also the only one around with a short enough time to respond before the dragon and the children it carried were lost forever. Its soon apparent however that not all is what it seems, even if Rose doesn't grasp it.
A short read but one with a quick succinct pace and plenty of action. Rose, for her young age, is an enjoyable and complex character, making the story that much more entertaining. A rich cultural diversity and potential should make for excellent additions to the series. Its apparent that being the youngest in such a large family has resulted in Rose growing up with plenty of tenacity, adding moments of humour to the plot. The quick series of events fly by, quite literally at times, which is usually a good sign that readers are intrigued and enjoying their experience. The shortened lengths of each novella should also mean a quicker release calender. The planned change in perspectives will undoubtedly offer a greater diversity to the plot, especially if the differing characters colour the way the same series of events are construed. Looking forward to the next in the series. The suits and faces of the cards which outlines the hierarchy is definitely a unique factor which is strangely intuitive.
