Every legendary villain has a story of intrigue and a character ultimately more flawed and fascinating than his hero counterpart. These fallen angels are no exception - cast out from heaven, the subversive spirits in this deck have committed at least one of the seven deadly sins to secure their place in the legions of the damned. The cards in Nigel Suckling's oracle are similarly rich with experience, and devilishly direct - Zepar, the angel who makes women love men, reveals the complications of an affair; Gusion, who can discern the past, present and future, calls to let intuition rule; while Shax, who has the appearance of a stork, warns people to protect their wealth. Choose a card for daily insight, or lay them out for a reading. The accompanying book reveals the card's meaning, and explains each angel's history. The illustrations, by artist Sarah Perkins, have been specially commissioned to evoke the dark charm of these fascinating, mysterious creatures, all of whom offer a special message.
