Life of a vampire called Eve through a deck of cards. (Yep that's my summary and I'm sticking with it)
Couple pictures of the cards:
I love this concept for a book. Sure it's artsy, and I'm not that big on artsy. But, it's just novel enough for me to enjoy it although I wouldn't say that there's much depth to the story. Also, the pictures are pretty nice although perhaps a bit clip-arty.
There is a companion book that gives you the full story as well as some explanation of each card. Some of the cards don't actually have story components on it; instead, they have other pictures. The author suggests that you could use the deck much like tarot cards and/or come up with your own ideas.
Essentially, this is something that I want to touch and play with.
