    2. The description of the book in is pretty shit. Hannah isn’t the main character in this book and she’s not even a reporter. And also what does her being beautiful have to do with anything? Lame. The actual book is the second book in the Card Sharks trilogy and features a variety of the Wild Cards characters introduced throughout the series as well as in the first Card Sharks book. It’s a good book. I read it fast and there were some totally good parts. Spoiler: omg I have seriously been wo [...]

    3. Marked Cards (Wild Cards, #14)Martin, George R.R."The color of his skin" Stephen Leighthe puppet man is gone, and Gregg has been left to pick up the pieces, now when things may have a chance for him to go back in his favor, he is frustrated without his "power" but that is only the beginning, he needs to learn to lie in his own skin, but he's has been jumped, and can he find a way back to the world he believed he could control."Two of a kind" Walton SimonsJay and Jerry have begun to work together [...]

    4. I have been rereading (or in some cases, reading for the first time), the entire "Wild Cards" series. I'm not sure if I've read this book before or not, and I know I didn't read the next one, so I'm at that point where I'm switching from reread to read.In this book, we learn of a conspiracy called the "Card Sharks"--a secret cabal of individuals who want to completely eradicate the Takisian virus, no matter what it takes (think Republicans and poor people, or Democrats and fiscal discipline, or [...]

    5. "Marked Cards" is the 14th book in George R. R. Martin's Wild Card series. It is also the second of the New Cycle trilogy and is an assortment of writers, each contributing a chapter or two to the novel. It is not as seamless as the first of the New Cycle books, but it done very well, especially for this type of challenging story telling. It follows the conspiracy of book 13, and furthers the endeavors of the same characters. Some say that sci-fi is not true literature, and in the academic sense [...]

    6. Wild Card's is back with this one. Card Sharks, while filled with interesting characters and places, was a batch of stories to show a history of the conspiracy. while I didn't hate that book it judt didn't have a smooth connection the whole way through. Marked Cards made that conspiracy a compelling story bringing all the past events into the modern light with s focusing on the single target the revealed Card Sharks make. That and I just loved the continuation of the Finn story.

    7. This was the second Wild Cards book that Baen produced, and was the fourteenth in the series overall. The Barclay Shaw covers were excellent on the Baen editions. The Finn story is good, as is Stephen Leigh's continuing story of Gregg Hartmann, and Victor Milan's piece. The interspersed story lines work quite well in this one, developing the Card Shark menace, and the mosaic novel label rings true better than it had in several previous volumes.

    8. Not as deftly done as the previous book (Card Sharks), Marked Cards continues the story line of the anti-wild cards conspiracy.Revolving mostly around Dr. Bradley Finn and Dr. Clara Van Rensaeller, it's the coming-of-age story of the latter who discovers that her past has blinded her present while she pursues the "cure" to the wild card via selective termination.Although enjoyable, the plot points and character evolution are both somewhat ham handed and one dimensional.

    9. This 'new cycle' is amazing! Not since the first few books of the series have I been so desperate to get to the next page. New facets of old characters, new characters that you care about deeply. Enemies and antagonists that it is a pleasure to loathe. Turtle and Gravemold and Croyd, oh fucking my!!

    10. Finally found copies of the last two books in "The New Cycle" (also called the Card Sharks trilogy) which were published by Baen and are out of print. Had the first one but 14 and 15 took a while to find.

    11. Good book about marked cards, let me know more about the card shake. Good book, worth reading but after finish, you may probably don't want to read it again.
