    Once again, Luffman drew me in with rising tension and an absorbing, different plot I love how he connected the main character s nervous tick and the ending Fans of Stephen King will enjoy this, but it s also fun if you ve ever played with Tarot cards.

    Some of you might think this story is predictable Not so for me Brandon threw in some curve balls that distracted me long enough to forget a few hints Jason is the moderator for the three Even close friends get into it now and then Brian s ticked off He s adamant he didn t do it Freddie s furious He s sure Brian slipped the card into his deck They get in each others faces, causing Jason to step in and try to diffuse them Freddie designs his tarot decks himself, and he s positive the ca Some of you might think this story is predictable Not so for me Brandon threw in some curve balls that distracted me long enough to forget a few hints Jason is the moderator for the three Even close friends get into it now and then Brian s ticked off He s adamant he didn t do it Freddie s furious He s sure Brian slipped the card into his deck They get in each others faces, causing Jason to step in and try to diffuse them Freddie designs his tarot decks himself, and he s positive the card was slipped into his deck by Brian Even though the back has the same design, there s no way he created the picture of the creepy old man in the hooded cape The figure is surrounded by fog, and the raised hand holding up three fingers, what s up with that No way does this card belong in his deck Brian s tired of hearing about it He didn t put the card in the deck and doesn t get why it s such a big deal It s just a card Freddie storms out When Jason suggests to Brian that he apologize, Brian storms out too Great He ll just let the two cool off for the weekend and see them next week when they ve had time to cool down Monday comes and Freddie doesn t show up for work After his shift, Jason heads to his mobile home to see what s up The minute he steps up to the door, his radar starts warning him somethings wrong He has a sick feeling, but continues inside OhGodOhGodOhGod What he discovers sends him to his knees Before everything fades to black he sees it lying there That card I love short stories I get something similar to tunnel vision when I read them There s nothing like them So much is revealed in so little words I let myself go and just become engrossed in the story, knowing I ll only be allowed to be there for a short while Brandon is great at getting you to connect with his characters quickly They become familiar and you grow to care about them At least the good ones Then comes the twists You have to have some good ones and know where to place them Brandon does this very well, drawing my attention this way and that, my mind trying to visual each scene I didn t get the ending I expected and that was a nice surprise I m usually close when I guess the ending and thought this story would go another way But, nope I got a different ending and thank Brandon for that The Card gets Four Stars from me

    Quick and enjoyable read Definitely unnerving I don t feel like I can saywithout it being spoilers, so spoiler tag it is view spoiler I feel like I want to knowabout this card Maybe a longer novella is in order Or a prequel story Maybe about how the card was created Is someone trapped in there Why is he trapped in there How is he just now managing to suck the life force out of people hide spoiler Also, the reason I left off a star was because view spoiler of the end I Quick and enjoyable read Definitely unnerving I don t feel like I can saywithout it being spoilers, so spoiler tag it is view spoiler I feel like I want to knowabout this card Maybe a longer novella is in order Or a prequel story Maybe about how the card was created Is someone trapped in there Why is he trapped in there How is he just now managing to suck the life force out of people hide spoiler Also, the reason I left off a star was because view spoiler of the end I mean, I totally get why it was ended there, but it bothers me that it leaves you with the assumption that, oh, now that the card is burnt up, everything s fine But everything s not fine His friends were murdered, evidence he touched is now missing, and he s going to be hounded if not brought to trial somehow hide spoiler I guess I m just picky like that Still, at some point I ll be grabbing Brandon s other stories to read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this short story It was a can t put down kind of read that pulled me in and moved quickly Like another of his short stories, Out After Dark, this story seemed like it could easly be fleshed out into a full novel This author does have a novel out, Frostwalker, but I also hope to seeshort stories from him soon


  8. Paulette Paulette says:

    Tarot cards have always held me in awe This short story shows exactly why they should be held in awe The title short story actually takes something away from this because this is a full story in a smaller format Excellent read and I look forward tofrom this amazing writer.
