Audiobook Review: House of Cards (The Chronicles of Kerrigan, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

House of Cards by W.J. May

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rae Kerrigan is three months away from graduating from Guilder Boarding school. She is now moonlighting as an operative for the Privy Council, a black ops division for British Intelligence. She’s given a mentor, Jennifer, who fights like a demon –fast, tough, and incredibly strong-willed. Rae finds a strange maternal bond with her. At the same time, she finds a new friend when Devon disappoints her once again. 

Childhood memories surface and evoke hidden secrets she is determined to solve. When the Privy Council ask for her help, she finds a friend, and a link, to the Xavier Knights – another agency similar to the Privy Council. Through the mystery and secrets, she begins to question what the PC represents and where she stands. 

Will she lose herself in the confusions of the past and present? What will it mean for her future?

The heroine: Rae Kerrigan – Rae becomes an agent for the Privy Council. She trains with a woman who knew her mother.

The Hero(es): Devon – Works for the Privy Council still. Devon has always been a rule follower and puts the Privy Council ahead of everything, even Rae. He often does things or keeps things from Rae.
Luke New guy that Rae meets. He doesn’t have a Tatù.

The Story: Rae seems a bit odd to me. For someone who has been attacked and betrayed as much as her, she has always seemed a bit to laissez faire about the fact that she wasn’t sure whether or not she could trust Devon. I kept thinking she was Scarlett O’Hara “I’ll think about that tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day”, every time she wondered if she could trust him, but decided to not think about it now.

I liked this book. There have been times that I have liked Devon and times that I have thought he was not good enough for Rae. This book solidifies that fact. I don’t know who the Hero is. I like the fact that in this series, it is always up in the air whether someone is a good guy or a bad guy. This book opens up the fact that what you think is bad might not be all bad and what you think is good may not be all good.
