One-time professional gambler Scott Crane hasn't returned to Las Vegas, or held a hand of cards, in ten years. But troubling nightmares about a strange poker game he once attended on a houseboat on Lake Mead -- a contest he believed he walked away from a big winner -- are drawing him back to the magical city. Because the mythic game did not end that night in 1969. And the price of his winnings was his soul. And now a pot far more strange and perilous than he ever could imagine depends on the turning of a card.… (mere)

This was one of those rare page-turners... after a certain point I just could not put it down, which is why I started in on the second half of the book around midnight tonight and am just now finishing at 6am. This is a book firing on all cylinders - pitch-perfect characterization, a deep and involving mythology, suspense, thrills, and incredible high stakes. Highly recommended, even to people who don't understand poker (like myself). ( )

I blew right the hell through this one. Not quite as good as I remember it being (hence no five star review), but it's still really, really great. ( )

This book is compelling and, for me, difficult. Neither understanding or liking card games, I have to accept Powers statements at least within the world of this novel, and it is a strange, dangerous, and fascinating world. His characters aren't innately attractive, rather the reverse, but he wields them to collective and individual ends that suit them and the structure of a fantasy quest. ( )

Don't know if I just wasn't in the mood or if the book was really that bad, but I couldn't read more than about 75 pages. Couldn't get involved in the mystical aspect of it that just didn't make sense.... So in the spirit of "there are so many good books", I put this one down and moved on. ( )

Excellent novel incorporating magic, gambling, Las Vegas, "The Wasteland," and tarot cards. Similar and yet so different from Gaiman's American Gods.
