Much like Labyrinth, I loved this novel. Full of history and imagery.. ( )

I felt there were a few plot holes with dealing with the demon and the main character not actually being the Debussy she was looking for, but overall I really enjoyed it and it was a really fast-paced read for such a large book. ( )

Another book that had been languishing on my shelves for years, this one turned out to be a proper page-turner. Léonie I liked as a protagonist from the start and Meredith eventually grew on me too. I don't really know anything about tarot, so visualising the cards was quite tricky, even if I liked how the cards and imagery were used in the book. ( )

A historical paranormal thriller with romantic undertones is probably the best way to describe this novel. It’s expertly told in past and present-day sections that interlink and progress steadily side by side. As Meredith Martin investigates her ancestral past the story of Leonie comes to light with threats both old and new, and sometimes unexpected. There’s not much to critique here — the wonderfully plotted book has enough suspense to hold the reader’s interest. The only possible negative and it’s not really a negative at all is that the paranormal influence is subtle at times, maybe too subtle for some who may be more interested in the supernatural aspects of the tale. The conclusion wasn’t as riveting as it may have been owing to that but it all rounds off satisfactorily where many books fail. This may interest those who like classical ghost stories, or historical thrillers, or even historical romances, although it’s not romantic fiction. ( )

Another supernatural/conspiracy thriller in the "DaVinci Code" vein, except this one revolves around....tarot cards? Ho hum. That's not nearly as intriguing a premise as the "DaVinci Code". Still, it was an enjoyable read and although it's 500 pages, it went quickly. ( )

Epigraph
L'âme d'autrui est une forêt obscure où il faut marcher avec précaution.
The soul of another is a dark forest in which one must tread carefully.

Letter, 1891
Claude Debussy
The true Tarot is symbolism; it speaks no other language and offers no other signs.

The Pictorial Key to the Tarot, 1910
Arthur Edward Waite
Dedication
To my wonderful mother, Barbara Mosse,
for that first piano

And, as ever, my beloved Greg —
for all things present, past and yet to come
First words
This story begins in a city of bones. In the alleyways of the dead. In the silent boulevards, promenades and impasses of the Cimetière de Montmartre in Paris, a place inhabited by tombs and stone angels and the loitering ghosts of those forgotten before they are even cold in their graves. [Prelude]
Léonie Vernier stood on the steps of the Palais Garnier, clutching her chatelaine bag and tapping her foot impatiently.
Where is he? [Chapter 1]
