Now we get to see the character Cyan who was easily the best tarot reader the circus (another one, Riley & Batheo’s Circus of Curiosities) has ever had - and for good reason. There's something a little too good about Cyan's ability, which eventually brings her more than she can deal with, both in the form of customers. One is a good kind of 'too much', a sailor, Oliver, who makes her heart tremble just a bit. But then there's another man who make her entire body tremble with fear (would make anyone - he has a blurred face for crying out loud) and so, even though Cyan has her family around her, and even if she truly has certain abilities, she feels utterly powerless to save herself.

This is a gripping story, the longest at 78 pages. Cyan is such a strong and mysterious, excellent character. Getting to know her more and what she's been to makes me want to re-read the series and reassess her entirely! (Not that she's not strong and mysterious in the series also, it's just... mysterious!)
