I have been rereading (or in some cases, reading for the first time), the entire "Wild Cards" series. I'm not sure if I've read this book before or not, and I know I didn't read the next one, so I'm at that point where I'm switching from reread to read.

In this book, we learn of a conspiracy called the "Card Sharks"--a secret cabal of individuals who want to completely eradicate the Takisian virus, no matter what it takes (think Republicans and poor people, or Democrats and fiscal discipline, or

Wild Card's is back with this one. Card Sharks, while filled with interesting characters and places, was a batch of stories to show a history of the conspiracy. while I didn't hate that book it judt didn't have a smooth connection the whole way through. Marked Cards made that conspiracy a compelling story bringing all the past events into the modern light with s focusing on the single target the revealed Card Sharks make. That and I just loved the continuation of the Finn story.

Good book about marked cards, let me know more about the card shake. Good book, worth reading but after finish, you may probably don't want to read it again.
This 'new cycle' is amazing! Not since the first few books of the series have I been so desperate to get to the next page. New facets of old characters, new characters that you care about deeply. Enemies and antagonists that it is a pleasure to loathe. Turtle and Gravemold and Croyd, oh fucking my!!

Finally found copies of the last two books in "The New Cycle" (also called the Card Sharks trilogy) which were published by Baen and are out of print. Had the first one but 14 and 15 took a while to find.
Entertaining. Crap, but entertaining crap.
