The Magician and the Nightingale

Read the Serial Novel

This serial novel traces the story of Kassandra Blake as she journeys into the world of the Tarot.

This is a literal “Alice in Wonderland” style journey where she steps into the actual Tarot cards.

Kassandra must travel from card to card, searching for a way to defeat the evil Magician, John Rykell.

Only what she discovers along the way is a path to heal her own soul.

Look for a new chapter and illustration every Sunday morning.
