5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 21 Aug 2001
By wicce_k VINE VOICE
I spotted this deck on the shelf in a bookshop and as soon as i saw it i knew i had to get it. I'm familair with Ms Hertz works (Fantastical Tarot) and so bought it and went straight home.
This deck is not really for the light hearted, so if you only sort of like the vampire myth , or dont like decks that are quite dark i dont recommend this deck. I'm quite a dark/gothic in nature so this deck suits me down the ground.
The deck isn't exactly a Waite clone, but it keeps to the traditional meanings somewhat. The art isn't for everyone tastes, but if you like the Fantastical Tarot or the Londa Tarot, but with a vampiric twist then this is the deck for you. It doesn't run like an Anne Rice novel or Dracula, but if you live in a fantasy world of vampires in general, then stop reading and get buyin!
The booklet contains a descriptive paragraph with divinationary meanings and reversed meanings with the Majors. Hertz refers to the vampires in the cards as "Bat" which is a nice term i've never heard used before. The Minors have some symbolism to them and thus have a quick sentence explainin the symbols with divinationary and reversed meanings.
Since gettin the deck i've had good readings, both for myself and for other people, though you'd better check its their cuppa tea. Blood, fangs, darkness, pale faces are rife in this deck... yummy!
Blessings and Happy readings! Bat ~0~

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarot Chiropterrix 8 Jan 2005
This is not your standard RWS or Swiss tarot, accept that and we shall get along splendidly. The images often bare little of the traditional symolism which seems to upset one reviewer, however I call that an advantage. It gives one cause to look at the pictures, to examine the personal meanings of each card. Using this deck one cannot simply lay a card and recite it's meaning by rote. I am quite the vampirophile and on this fromt I cannot comlain either, the vampires (or 'bats' as the artist calls them, hence the title of my review) are stylish and unique, yes, but that is no bad thing. The Fool and Magician are particularly superb. The pip cards each have their own style, the Swords all show tormented stone statuary danced around my swords whilst the wands show portraites of vampires. All of the major arcana images are splendidly macarbre from 0, a painted harlequin licking blood from a razor to 21, a vampiress at large in a dormitory of sleeping maids. As for the sun, well, use your imagination, I think you know what it is. Personaly, I'd hang the sun image on my wall if it were large enough.
If you expect to get bad nerws from a reading and your Rider-Waite-Smith just doesn't seem man enough for the job, this is the deck you need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Diane's tarot guide 2 Jan 2007
I admit I bought this deck on a whim, not expecting it to be that good. I really bought it for the Vampire image etc as I was presenting a spooky TV show at the time.

What a surprise! Not only are they great fun to use, but amazingly accurate, I have done hundreds of readings with them and people keep coming back for more. I would highly recommend them as they encourage you to 'think outside the box' when it comes to reading tarot. Not for the traditionalist, but great fun for the adventurous.

I waited weeks for this deck, and was terribly disappointed when I finally received it. I am a freak about vampires (you can't name a film I haven't seen about them etc.) and adore Tarot so I was well fired up when I heard about this deck. What I received is a deck with very poor, childlike artwork. For example, the vampire's teeth are often simply drawn over the top of the lips with no effort to make them look as if they are coming out of the mouth! The artwork is also such that the vampires look more like elves with big teeth! As someone steeped in everything vamparic from the old Bela Lugosi classics through to the Hammer Horrors and right up to today's versions such as Blade - I can honestly say I have never seen a vampire that looked like an elf! You get the feel that the author hasn't done their homework on the vampire front at all.
In terms of Tarot itself, it seems the author has put even less effort into making this an authentic Tarot deck with imagery true to the cards' meanings.
The imagery appears to have not been thought out at all as many cards bear almost no relevance to the traditional meaning. In fact, most cards simply have one central character of a large vampire, with perhaps some tiny additional imagery in the very background if you are lucky. What evolves from that, is a deck that offers little in the way of imagery to aid card meaning recall, and a very boring deck where the author simply trys to display a single vampire in 78 interesting ways. This is really more like a collectors card deck about vampires than it is a Tarot deck. In fact, it doesn't even look or feel like a tarot deck and I could hardly see a distinction from one card to the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful deck 23 July 2014
These are very striking cards,the pictures are Gothic and luxurious with alot of depth to them,I especially love the cards 'The lovers' (showing a vampire and mortal couple) and 'The tower'( showing a spookey old castle with bats flying around it),even the backs of the cards are nice;with vibrant red and black swirls.
They're a good deck to work with and mine have been accurate,I would say they're more for intermediate Tarot readers rather than beginners.
The booklet is well-written,giving brief interpretations for the cards and four card spreads (including the very useful 'Drawing of the day' spread).
A great deck to add to your collection
