Melissa's Review:

Sara Wilde returns in book two of the Immortal Vegas series. This installment revolves around Sara and her latest mission from the Arcana Council. The Arcana Council is composed of members with strong magic dedicated to keeping the balance. They are represented as some of the Major Arcana, some of the key players in the book are the Fool, Magician, Devil, and a few others.

Sara excels as a magical artifacts hunter with her trusty tarot deck by her side. A local event, the Rarity, is in Vegas for the first time in forever and it's drawing some major players in Sara's field. She's tasked with finding some ancient scroll cases before they get to The Rarity and determine if their rumored powers are legit. Something is also drawing in the local Connected, people with abilities. Sara's task seems to be fairly easy, but unforseen complications gives us a more interesting read.

I was happy to see more of the Aracana Council in this installment. While we don't find everything out about them, we're slowly unraveling information on them and I can't wait to find out more. I'm also intrigued by Sara's powers, she really just uses her tarot deck and some psychic ability but you can tell there will be more to come. All in all Wilde Card was a solid sequel and I can't wait to see what happens next. I recommend this book if you like Urban Fantasy with an Indiana Jane main character.

    1. There seems to be a spike in that type of female lead lately. Treasure hunters always seem to be on the go, which leads to an entertaining read :D

    1. Oh yes, the covers caught my attention too. I think the novella prequel to the series is a freebie btw :)
