For those who deal in the fate of the world, salvation and destruction are not games of chance.
Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger never intended to live among the Immortal Dealers, much less to be party to an ongoing battle where the fate of humanity is in the draw of a card. And the stakes have gotten only higher now that a shady new Forger has been crowned.
Virginia may be in charge of creating the chaos that makes the universe tick, but her assignments have been noble—each one in the aid of strangers. But when Ernie discovers Virginia’s true purpose, she realizes it’s going to take an entirely new kind of play to stop her.
The game changer lies within a mysterious artifact dredged from the ocean. To unlock its powers, Ernie and her partner, Gabe, must traverse dangerous new realms and uncover the history of Forgers past. Joined in a tenuous alliance with a former enemy and stalked by old friends turned lethal foes, Ernie had better play her cards right—because this time, the whole universe could be destroyed in the shuffle
The Warrior by Sarah Fine is the final book in the Immortal Dealers series and I was excited to dive in. Grab your cards and prepare to battle!*
Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger and her Immortal Dealer friends must go up against the Forger, now that they have discovered Virginia’s true purpose. A card that lies at the sea might be the salvation they need.
The Warrior was action-packed with plenty of battles, setbacks and discoveries as the story moves towards the final battle with the Forger.
Dimensions, artifacts and allies all made for some intense action in this unique urban fantasy. The use of Tarot like cards and creatures has a Pokemon and Yugioh type vibe that gamers will enjoy.
From relationship development and interesting discoveries in alternate dimensions I was seriously enjoying the build-up, teamwork and significant battles. However, the ending felt rushed.
When the book ended, the first thing I felt was that this final book should have been two books. The first book dealing with Phoebe and the fallout from their first confrontation with Virginia. The second book dealing with their new skill sets and the final battle. Anyhow, that’s my opinion and I am not sure if others will agree.
Carly Robins narrated the series and made listening enjoyable. She gave voice to all the individual characters and enhanced the action scenes though tone and pacing. I would listen to her again.
Overall I enjoyed the Immortal Dealers series and had a blast with these characters. The Warrior while rushed did give us closure and tied up relationship woes.
