    1. <3I have this weird line in my brain that divides books into genres, above all if Romance is involved. It's not a pretty sight. If you happen to know me, you'll have an inkling of it. UF romance:PNR=SCI-FI romance:Futuristic R or you could say thriller:RSWhen the second part of that formula is invoked, it always means there's something wrong. That is the romance totally skews the plot.Here we have a book with tons of possibilities, all talking the wrong turn. :/Most of my nits revolve around [...]


    2. I enjoyed this sci-fi. Has from Book Pushers rec'd it to me. It's set in the future, the heroine can read tarot cards and has a "luck" gene - where she kinda knows when trouble is coming.The hero is a wealthy russian guy - bad guy rep, but not really. He hires the heroine for a job - and then the book takes off. There are some big twists I enjoyed. Really nice voice

    4. TW: CHEATING, CHILD ABUSEFinally, an urban fantasy series that I can turn to, now that I've become disenchanted with Kate Daniels!Felicia Sevigny is a tarot reader - actually the best tarot reader.It seems luck follows her, whether it's good or bad luck, now that's another matterIn a future where the government controls your fertility, Felicia finds herself blacklisted from being allowed to have a child. And she'll go to whatever lengths she needs to so she can have the future she wants.Terroris [...]


    5. The Rule of Luck was an enjoyable urban fantasy/sci-fi tale with some interesting elements and a little romance thrown in for good measure. Felicia Sevigny is a tarot reader who makes her living giving readings in her own shop. She meets an interesting-slash-shady customer who wants a reading in a hurry and is willing to pay handsomely, which Felicia is most willing to take since her funds have been depleted dealing with other.es. A simple reading should be just that - simple, yet she finds hers [...]


    6. While the world-building in this story was certainly fascinating, I felt the plot was overwhelmed by the numerous mundane and cliched romance tropes, particularly the possessive alpha male hero and the female protagonist who has no practically no agency. I felt the story would have been much stronger if it had struck a better balance between the science fiction elements and the romance elements. Unfortunately, the cliched romance made it pretty difficult to focus on much else, and the rest of th [...]


    7. I was in a bit of a reading slump before I picked this book up but now I'm cured :) This is a romance heavy sci-fi. It's a fun and easy read but it still has enough drama and depth to keep your interest.The sci-fi aspect was done in a very refreshing way. I don't think I've seen a story like this before. Felicia is a fortune teller from a large clan of tech averse Romanis. She has a business, she's building up her life, and her dream is to have a baby which is something you dont ever see with he [...]




    8. 3.7This took me a bit to get into but once I was in, I was hooked. However, there are a few things that bugged me.Not enough Tarot. There were some really good scenes with tarot but for a professional and hereditary tarot reader, Felicia would be consulting them or thinking about them a lot more.While the world building gets 3 stars (even though it's a bit too much for me to wrap my head around because I've never been good with time/space travel and things of that nature (view spoiler)[ Alexei t [...]


    9. The Rule of Luck is Catherine Cerveny's debut novel. You can tell that Cerveny has spent a lot of time thinking about and creating her future Earth. The wordlbuilding is exceptional and is not bogged down by minutiae. Cerveny gives you everything you need to understand why this future Earth is the way it is and it's fascinating.I truly enjoyed the two main characters Felicia Sevigny and Alexei Petriv. The are both interesting and flawed. They make a wonderful, if not expected, couple. Felicia is [...]


    10. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/There are authors who blend romance and sci fi perfectly - Linna Sinclair, for example always strikes the perfect balance. Here, with Catherine Cerveny's Rule of Luck, we have the opposite: the science fiction is simplistic window dressing for a cliche alpha male lust story. Our heroine exhibits the usual TSTL (Too Stupid To Live) syndrome and the lead male spends most of the book manipulating or saving our Penelope-in-distress. Add [...]


    11. I received a free copy of Rule of Luck through Giveaways. There’s no obligation for me to leave a review, but I am choosing to do so. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I received my copy of Rule of Luck. I knew from the description that it was more along the lines of science fiction, being set in the future with gene modifications being the norm. I also knew that the cover was absolutely stunning – though it still doesn’t quite read as a science fiction cover to me. Whatever exp [...]


    12. Generally enjoyable, I liked how much Felicia stood up for herself and showed anger for her mistreatments at Alexei's hand. And there were a lot of them. So many in fact that, even by the end, I had a hard time letting go and rooting for them as a pair. This was exasperated by the fact that the sort of love/lust developing is based on something other than who they are as people. (Think fated mates, but not.) This always annoys me, because it makes them interchangeable with anyone else who fills [...]



    13. full review to be posted at The Book Pushers.I must be in a sci fi kick at the moment. I was intrigued with the premise of the series in a highly technological sophisticated world and a fortune telling heroine who is genetically gifted with luck. The world building was really well thought out with different factions vying for control in the solar system that has managed to terraformed Venus, Mars and the outer planets. The heroine was engaging and likeable and I thought her abilities contrasted [...]


    14. This was exactly what a needed, an easy, fun read! Overall I really enjoyed the slightly dystopian, mostly sci-fi setting, the strong, totally capable heroine, and the world building. Felicia Sevigny is a tarot card reader, living in Nairobi, Kenya, one of the last few cities on Earth following the melting of the ice caps. In this new world there is a single goverenment who control everything - population, calories consumption, resources - and humans are spread throughout colonies on Mars and Ve [...]


    15. Enjoyed it! A really good mix of sci-fi and romance - with just enough tech to give a sense of what this future is (or is not - hope Elon Musk doesn't make these kinds of mistakes with his hyperloop!) - but not so much to be a distraction. And a projection of a globally-governed society that is well drawn and believable. The first-person narrative by Felicia is engaging. She is capable, and we get to go along with her on her adventure, as she learns more about herself. Refreshing to have a tough [...]


    16. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.In RULE OF LUCK, there’s tarot readings, love, and questionable science. Professional tarot card reader Felicia Sevigny is recruited by the Russian mob. She’s going to help them take down the evil government, in return she’ll be given more control over her destiny. The plot quickly becomes uneven, as the sci-fi elements turn what could have been serviceable contemporary urban fantasy, into a silly future world that has you asking, “why are peop [...]


    17. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because it seemed interesting and it was on sale for $1.99. My personal review of the book is as follows:I really like the main character and I was totally into the storyline until around the plot twist that happens around page 124 (in my Nook edition) in my personal opinion it was way too convenient on a lot of different ways(I can't really explain why without giving away really important plot points).As the romantic plotline began to play ou [...]


    18. Entertaining, I was able to read it in one day. Being a sci-fi book, I hadn’t anticipated the romance intertwined the way it was but I think in this case it added a layer to the characters and how they moved in the world the author created. The world building was interesting and the implied future science was compelling, a good quality in any science fiction novel. I will probably read more of this series in the near future.


    19. This was incredibly steamy and all entertaining. That being said, there were also aspects I found really interesting, which I can't really explain here for spoiler reasons, but one example I can use is the whole concept of luck. So this hit all the right places for me - intellect, steam, and wonderful characters. Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.


    20. I am pleased to announce I really liked this scifi/romance mashup. I enjoyed the sexy love relationship ,the hot headed arguments, the exciting new worlds, the old timey tarot cards and all the lush trappings of the rich and influential in 2950. I really enjoyed the characters and the dynamics between the characters. I look forward to the chaos of luck too.


    21. Unexpected This was a great book. I loved the characters and could not put it down. I immediately read the second one and am looking for other like this series!





    22. What if luck has nothing to do with, well, luck. Some people seem to have all the luck while others have none. What if there is a reason for that? In Catherine Cerveny’s The Rule of Luck, that theory is explored with interesting results.Felicia Sevigny loves her job as a Tarot card reader. She is very good at it, able to see into people’s lives with uncanny accuracy. Or is she just lucky? When Russian Consortium heir apparent Alexei Petriv seeks a reading from Felicia, she senses a connectio [...]



    23. The Rule of Luck, A Science Fiction Romance,  Catherine CervenyReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre:  Sci-fi and FantasyTarot cards: something always makes me wonder about them. I’d love to learn more about them – in fact after reading this I’ve downloaded a book on KU about them. Just need the time to read it now ;-) So, this sounded an interesting read, with off-grid-as-far-as-she-can-be Felicia earning her way with the Tarot cards, and Alexei being what seems like her total op [...]
