Recommended for: Anyone who likes to look at the darker side of humanity

One of the most deeply psychological looks at the darker side of human nature, this novel uses fantastic imagery from the tarot and combines it with psychoanalysis to give a deeply profound insight into the aspects of human thought that nobody likes to talk about.

Dark from the onset, this book forces you to question that which we so often take for granted: our sanity.

How many of us can truly say that we've never felt out of sync with the rest of the world? Never looked in the mirror and felt completely alone? Never seen all the power-plays and injustice in the world and thought: 'isn't chaos fairer?'?

This book is great for those who look at society and recognize how laughable the sanctity of rules is in a morally grey world, who acknowledge that even the best of us can never truly be called 'sane' in a life where neuroses and complexes combine to form the entirety of the personality.

A fantastic story to immerse yourself into, just make sure you don't lose yourself along the way!
