Falling in love and saving the world are not in the cards, or are they?

Devorah Rosten received a pack of tarot cards for her Bat Mitzvah, hid them away, and forgot about them.

Kristin Marra is a puzzle master. I have to admit that as she began laying out the pieces, I reached a point where I felt totally lost and was considering starting the first couple of chapters over to see what I missed ... because I'm a fast reader and often read a book over immediately to see what I've missed by reading to fast. Then two pieces clicked together, then another, then I caught myself guessing which one fit with the next ... not always correctly. I was so sucked into this story, ...more

Oy. 78 Keys is a mechaieh, a joy indeed. Marra's reluctant heroine, a charming, hypochondriacal tarot reader, is fated to try and save the world from evil. Not a bad fate as apparently the battle for good and evil is waged between stunningly attractive women.

Though I was initially put off by back to back redundancies on the first page ("plastic rubber plants", "straight white capped teeth") and the immediate jerky switches between future, present, and past, Marra's premise of a fortune teller t

78 Keys is an interesting mixture of tarot, adventure, love, and action. Devorah has been tapped by a higher power to bring balance by fighting the force of The Malignity, which looks to create chaos in the world. The Malignity is looking to strike a big blow against humanity and Dev is the warrior that the 'other side' has chosen to fight it. Caught up in all of this is Laura Stratton, a former client of Dev's, and now the main target of The Malignity's focus.

I highly enjoyed 78 Keys - Ms. Marr

I only initially bought this for the tarot aspect of the novel and thought 'oh I'll just put up with the love story'. But. I would have liked the book to be longer and to have really delved a lot more deeply into the personal relationships between people. It sort of glosses over it all and then the book ends rather abruptly (just my opinion). Other than that I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would based on the reviews. I'll be reading it again, something I don't do too often with a novel ...more

Okay Story

Was real slow I found myself skipping pages and couldn't wait for it to end. Maybe I will give it another chance in the future.

Kristin Marra spent the first thirty-five years of her life in Montana where she never learned to love snow. Conceding defeat, she moved to the Pacific Northwest and freely admits she adores the clouds and gloom. Overcast days encourage delightfully obscene hours of reading and more hours for writing. Besides books, cooking, and movies, Kristin enjoys sharing adventures with her partner Judith, ...more
