Das Spiel Des Schicksals (2011) - Plot & Excerpts

The Game of Triumphs is about a game. But not just any game. The game depicted within the book turns life itself into one. This fantasy book puts a card game in that reflects on real life and fifteen year old Cat is caught up in the middle of it. Admittedly, this book starts off a bit slow as readers try to get used to the rules of the game and how it works but then it accelerates and hits many intense-action spots. This book also uses an immense amount of adventure as the main characters must travel through the alternate reality of the game world. I enjoyed the idea of "life is a game" the book used and I was captivated because of how unique this book was compared to other books I have read. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action, card games, or adventure as this would captivate anyone who enjoys those genres. I would rate this book five stars out of five stars. I was interested in this YA book when I saw on the back inside flap that the author studied classics at Oxford. It’s not particularly classical, though there are some Latin quotes (which are correct, and correctly translated, I was happy to see). We meet Cat, a loner of a teenager who has just moved with her aunt/guardian to London. She initially brushes off her strange encounter with a man on the street as just another crazy person in the city, but it ends up leading her to the Game in which knights seek rewards in the supernatural world of the Arcanum. The tarot-based system is overly complicated, but I was able to enjoy the story without worrying too much about the intricacies of the Cups, Swords, Pentacles, etc.
