This is the best gothic-style Tarot I've seen in terms of art-quality. My main concern is that you can tell the art wasn't designed with Tarot in mind; it seems like the artist just picked already crafted works and stuck them together as a Tarot deck. The art is still beautiful, but there's a definite lack in symbolism caused by the way the deck was constructed. Also, it might be expected, but the readings this gives are definitely gloomy. ( )

Darkly seductive and erotic on a certain level. Those who appreciate vampires and the darker side will LOVE this deck. Not recommended for beginners, as it might be hard to get by without the more traditional RWS symbolism. The symbols are there, they are just not easy to spot. ( )
