This is the final book of the Tarot trilogy, and is no standalone. Like say, Lord of the Rings, the three books are really one novel, not three novels with the same world and characters, so you should really read God of Tarot and Vision of Tarot first. Brother Paul of the Holy Order of Vision is a monk on a future Earth that has expanded to the stars. He's sent by the head of his order to investigate reports that God has appeared on the planet Tarot. The first book was framed by the 9 trump card ...more

In the concluding part Paul, having failed to find the god of Tarot through religion, now decides to look for him in Hell. He's sent to visit the past and finds out what he wanted to know about the origin of the Tarot cards. After plenty more visions he returns to the colonists with an answer, but they won't like it. Meanwhile he stitches the book nicely into his Cluster series.

Again a pleasant read, but nothing really exciting.

Love, love, love the 3rd in this trilogy! Paul journeys to hell to discover God, and the true nature of the Tarot. I love the self-reflective nature of this whole book, and the twists (multiple) at the end.
