This review is from: Circus Tarot (Kindle Edition)
Yes, this is a book for horror/fantasy fans. Also, as the description labels, one can see the influences of Alice in Wonderland, but also of Stephen King's "It," and Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes." Someone else suggested, don't read it before bed. All of the above.

Darrin and Mary inherit a pack of tarot cards from an old women in the shop where Mary works. They play around with it and find themselves in an alternate world, an alternate reality. They have to figure out not only how to get home, but how to survive the many characters that inhabit the tarot cards. They find that in normal circumstances, each card has a good purpose, but when "flipped" their purpose becomes bizarre, dangerous and what's worse, they never see it coming.

This would be a great YA novel, if it weren't for some graphic sex and violence scenes. Exciting as the story is, I've found many grammatical errors and editing problems, and many instances of characters floating into scenes where they do not belong. However that may be, it's still a scary read and well-worth the time.
