Bloodtaking 15 Dec. 2009
By Hayward H. Siegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well, this is a deck about vampires. I have to say bloodtaking, because I want to say "breathtaking", but vampires don't take your breath. The illustrations in this deck are absolutely stunning, appearing to be photographs of the scenes. The scenes are dark and Gothic. Of cause there is blood shown in several of the scenes, but maybe only 1 or 2 cards might appear to be gory to some. Very few actual people are pictured; what appears to be humans, in the vast majority of cards, are actually vampires. The younger men and women pictured are attractive and sexually alluring. The older vampires shown are not as attractive as the younger ones, but can also be sexually alluring. The authors of this set present the idea that vampires are created creatures, who were once human, are no longer so, but have retained some aspects of their humanity, and there is a constant struggle between the monstrous and human sides of their existence, with no happy conclusion. Besides vampires, many of the cards picture other creatures of the night. I won't speak further about the illustrations, because I don't want to affect your initial viewing of these cards, but on several of the cards you will be surprised at what is pictured; a bit different than what is pictured in most tarot decks. The set contains a 158 page, soft covered book. It opens with a discussion of the relationship between vampire lore and ourselves, both as individuals and as members of society. Next is a brief, but good discussion, of the structure of a tarot deck. This is followed by a discussion of each of the cards of the deck. There is a full color picture of each of the cards, which is unusual in a companion book. There are core aspect words given for each card, which I found very helpful for interpreting cards in this deck, as well as those in other decks. The Majors are discussed using key words, traditional meaning, vampire story, dark approach, human approach, light approach, and divinatory meaning. The Minors lack key words and traditional meaning in their discussions. The discussion of the cards is followed by section on how to perform a reading of the cards, followed by examples of spreads. The book closes with a section on how to throw a vampire party; this is something I will pass upon. For lovers of vampire and Gothic themed tarot decks, this set is a special treat.

I love this deck!! 7 Feb. 2011
By Michele Rathbun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I thought this deck would be cool based on seeing the pics of the cards online, but the reality is even better. I have been collecting tarot decks for years, and used my first deck, the Rider-Waite, exclusively for the first ten years or so. I discovered the Robin Wood Tarot and started using that, again for several years, occasionally going back to my original when I felt like it. Since then I've purchased or been given about five more decks, but haven't been tempted again to switch the one I actively use until recieving this deck. Since I got it, every reading I've done has been with the Vampires Tarot... I love it that much! The case it comes in and the book that comes with it are both high quality, and I love how the book has pics of each card on the page with the card's interpretations. The fact that the major arcana doesn't have the names on the cards, only the numbers, takes a little getting used to, but once I'd just glanced through the deck a time or two, I found I could locate enough of the usual symbology used on those cards in most decks to figure out at a glance which one the card is without looking it up, even before I used them enough to recognize them in their own right. That is another thing I consider an asset to this deck. Though the artwork is unique, they don't neglect the deeper symbology of the tarot.

Your Twihard Clients will LOVE it! 30 Mar. 2012
By Hope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Let me preface this review by stating that I'm not a Twilight fan; but having done tarot parties in the homes of grown women with Twilight movie posters on their walls I knew it was time to get a Vampire themed tarot deck if I wanted to truly please the "Twihards" among us.

After much review of Vampire themed decks I decided upon The Vampires Tarot of the Eternal Night which was published in 2009 by LoScarabeo and showcases the dark art work of Davide Corsi.
Unlike most LoSarabeo decks there is no printed language on any of the cards. The deck itself is for the most part a Rider-Waite-Smith style deck with 78 cards consisting of 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. The Court cards consist of Knaves, Knights, Queens and Kings and the pip cards are fully illustrated in images that per the LWB are supposed to "transport the observer to distant times in fantastic and mysterious places, where darkness becomes the essential element."

The artwork on the back of the deck is an interesting gothic design on a blood red background with a red jewel at its center and is fully reversible.

The Minor Arcana suits are divided into Chalices, Pentacles, Wands, and Swords. As previously stated there are no words printed on the cards so you must look for colors and symbols to know which suit a card belongs to. Chalice cards have a golden cup centered on a blue jewel tone oval on the bottom frame with the number of the card also in gold centered in a blue oval at the top of the card. The suit of Pentacles is differentiated by the use of the color green and a golden demon embossed Pentacle. The suit of Wands uses the color red and a Wand with a bat handle that reminds me more of a walking stick. The suit of Swords uses the color yellow with a Sword that looks a lot like the Wand as the hilt of the Sword tends to blend into the background. The Major Arcana uses a marbled black color and Roman numerals.
Ok did you catch that? The Major Arcana cards do not have words on them and uses only roman numerals which means that you must know the numbers of your Major Arcana cards or be well versed in what the pictures "should" look like to identify them. Although your LWB should be able to assist you in this the LWB has an error in it as it identifies the 8 card as Justice and the 11 card as Strength. In all actuality it is the opposite with the 8 card showing a werewolf and the 11 card showing lovely vampire woman holding golden scales!

The court cards are differentiated by the jewel tone color of their suit and the symbol of a bat for Knaves, a wolf head for Knights, a woman's head for the Queens and a man's head for the Kings.

Despite the seemingly somber hues and images there are pops of color and touches of humor and beauty throughout this deck for instance the 7 of Swords depicts a mortal woman sneaking about clutching a holy cross to her bosom, while the 10 of Chalices shows a happy couple posing with the family pets (wolf and werewolf)! Star cards are almost always visions of loveliness and the Star card in this deck is no exception and although nudity is depicted it is done in a tasteful elegant manner. The 8 of Swords card has an interesting twist showing a very irate wolf chained to a wall. I believe my favorite card in the deck is the 6 of Wands which shows a scratched and bleeding werewolf presenting his Wand victoriously to the full moon. There is an incredible feeling of personal power and courage in this card that draws me in and I get a feeling of being privileged to be privy to this intimate moment of personal triumph.

I bought this deck out of a sense of obligation but I find that the more that I use it, the more I truly personally enjoy it. I'm still not a "Twihard" but I do very much take pleasure in this vampire deck.

An excellent gift! 24 Oct. 2010
By Scott W. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the set as a gift for my 16 year old god daughter and she said she loved it!
The cards are based on the look of Bram Stoker's Dracula by the looks of them and they did a fine job. Nothing too graphic or revealing. Her mother told me she read the book in the first two days of having it, so it sounds like a good read.
Thanks to Amazon it was at least $12 cheaper on the end cost than anywhere else on the web.

Thank You

Scott D.
