Love. Death. Betrayal.

It’s All in the Cards.

Tarot Cover Art 300

When Kassandra Troy discovers an ancient tarot deck, her life takes a thrilling and frightening turn. She triggers The Magician card, and releases the mysterious and captivating Luke Rykell. He lifts Kassandra out of despair, dispelling the devastation she feels after her father’s death. But Luke has a dark secret. He wants the magical deck for himself. The only way Kassandra can save herself is to journey into the Tarot cards. But once inside, can she ever escape?

Irresistibly compelling and heart-wrenching, Tarot: The Magician is a superb fantasy tale that will haunt you long after you’ve read the last page.


Regrettably the publisher has closed its doors and Tarot is in limbo presently. You can still read a sample of Tarot: The Magician right here. Or click on the fancy schmancy button below.

Tarot Book Trailer

I worked for over two months drawing and coloring the panels you see in this trailer. I wanted it to be as special as the book. However, I was daunted by the music. I’m no musician. However, if it were silent, or had canned music, that would undermine all the hard work I put into the animation. Bradley Coy came to my rescue. For the full story on how the theme for the book trailer was created, read A Theme Song for an ebook.

Book Reviews

Don’t trust me? Here are readers who have read and commented on the book.

“I especially enjoyed Kassandra’s journey through the cards as she tries to solve the problems she’s faced with and find her way out. And the ending gives me hope for a sequel (or a series?)” by Tara at Dividing by Zero

“Exciting and incredibly dramatic and immaginative, the author has demonstrated he’s a master. The imagry is fantastic and the story well told. This one’s a winner.” by A. G. on Amazon

“The idea of entering the cards and traveling from one to another would have been cool enough, but Kane goes even further, making the lesson of each card a pivotal experience for Kassandra.” by Sally on Amazon
“I normally do not enjoy books about paranormal ideas, but this sucked me in and I found myself hoping Tim Kane writes another.” by Nancy on Amazon

Read about the Rykell Brothers and the history of the cards. Is the curse real? What about the origin of the Tarot cards themselves. Discover the sordid history of the cards.

I’ve also created a “dream” soundtrack to the novel. I had to use two separate posts for the beginning of the story and the section where Kassandra is actually in the Tarot deck.

    Sounds awesome! As a tarot reader I love stories that deal with the mystique and pitfalls of dealing with the cards. I’ve had some drama of my own with them. I’ll check it out!
