Irina Proffer leaves mundane small-town life behind when she experiences visions inspired by a strange deck of tarot cards. To get answers, she travels from her northern British Columbia home to the province’s coastal capital. She quickly discovers a world of fringe genetic science and supernatural mystery.

Working for Innoviro Industries, Irina is drawn in by a powerful first love and compelling, yet dangerous questions about the nature of the company’s business. Meeting other ‘variants’ brings Irina closer and closer to the dark truth about her origins. She finds herself at the heart of two overlapping love triangles as she scrambles to escape her employer’s grip.

Before she leaves the city, Irina realizes she has merely scratched the surface of a frightening conspiracy on a global scale.

In Irina’s Cards starts with Irina Proffer seeing strange visions, inspired by a deck of tarot cards. To get answers, she travels to Victoria, where she quickly discovers a world dominated by genetic science and supernatural mystery, mixed in one. She starts working for Innoviro Industries, where she meets other ‘variants’, people who are like her – different from everyone else. But not everythign is as it seems, and Irina struggles to figure out who she can trust and who she can’t trust, all the while keeping check on her emotions, as she finds herself at the heart of two overlapping love triangles.

The book starts out slow, but once it finds its pace, it becomes an enjoyable read. The story is complex enough to be entertaining, and it boosts an impressive host of characters, Irina in particular. She’s a brave, intelligent heroine, and I could easily relate to her.

An excellent start to a new series. I would recommend this book to fans of series like Divergent, or just of scifi romance in general, and I look forward to reading the sequel.
