The Magician, Virtual Arcana #1 by Karen Amanda Hooper

The Magician 
Virtual Arcana 1

The Magician by Karen Amanda Hooper
Series: Virtual Arcana Book 1
Expected publication: November 15th, 2014

The second book in the VIRTUAL ARCANA series.

The series starts with book 0: The Fool.

Mysterious cards keep appearing in Kelsey’s life, stirring up questions and forcing her to keep secrets from her sister, Keekee.

Triggered by Kelsey’s fear and Keekee's worry, the twins become bright blips on their tyrannical government’s radar.

Xander’s magic seems to be their only chance at escaping a dangerous confrontation, but is Kelsey willing to break multiple laws and finally step into Xander's illegal world of virtual reality?

My thoughts about The Magician ~~

The second book in the Virtual Arcana series picks right up where book one ended. We are thrown back into Kelsey's world where things don't make sense. And figuring out who and what is right or wrong is a tough thing to figure out.

Should Kelsey listen to Xander and go against everything she has been brought up to believe is right? Or should she fight against those same beliefs because they just don't make sense to her?
"No, Kelsey Zellar. I won't change your band back to normal. Because you are not normal. You are extraordinary. And extraordinary people shouldn't be imprioned by a tyrannical government."
Poor Kelsey, it seems that she's damned if she does, and damned if she doesn't. She and her family could be killed no matter what path they choose to take.
"Follow your instincts," Xander reminded me. "They'll never lead you in the wrong direction." 
And then the reader is left with more questions and another card that needs explaining, just when the story ends. I can't wait for the next episode!
This series will be serial style with short episodes (15-20k) releasing frequently. For those who want to wait for a longer, more complete story, a collection of the first 7 episodes, Virtual Arcana, Season 1, will be available once episode 7 has released.
