Never play the game without an Ace up your sleeve.
During her years of finding and selling artifacts on the arcane black market, Tarot reader Sara Wilde has made a bona fide killing. Now, as the recently appointed head of an ancient Connected syndicate, she's forced to take a truly deadly role in the war on magic.
Within the House of Swords, every blade cuts deep. Usurpers and claimants attack from all sides, while the Magician's insidious pull on Sara becomes ever more twisted and beguiling. As she struggles to strengthen her position and manage her new, unwieldy abilities, Sara discovers her greatest challenge yet: a master warrior determined to deliver the syndicate and everyone it protects to its mortal enemy.
Bolstered by an unexpected Ace and a mystical sword, and faced with a round-the-world race to outmaneuver friends and foes alike, Sara's future balances on a merciless edge.
The cards can cut both ways when you play ACES WILDE.

Buckle Your Seatbelt, Bumpy Ride.
Sara inherits leadership of ancient syndicate House of Swords with ursurpers challenging her with said leadership position in traditional battle with death declared winner. Not only is Sara scrambling to learn all she can about the House of Swords, she is gaining new powers rotted in magic she has little time to learn limits and management of these powers. Additionally, she must balance her emotions from her experience in Hell (Book 4.) Wait till you read how Sara faces these challenges 1 by 1 in this new book. I am now addicited to this series after reading Books 1 thru 5. I cannot wait to read Book 6.
Very interesting and excellent book! Sara has a new role to play involving houses and swords. Her trip to hell to get the Magician has her hiding something from the Magician and not accepting the results of it herself. Nigel has an interesting role with the houses. Sara must accept her role as head of the house and fight for it as well. A past nemesis will affect many of her decisions. The book ends with a very interesting twist. Read and enjoy as I am off to read the next in the series!
