    1. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.I think Wild Card is a good start to (I'm assuming) a new urban fantasy series. I don't see any other books in the works, but that's never stopped an author before!Cat is an extremely skilled computer tech who lost her soul to Eris in a game of poker.The hows aren't explained till toward the end of the book, but it's not exactly what you thinkSince then, she's been the goddess of Discord's unpaid lackey. [...]


    2. Okay, I need to preface this review by saying I tend to shy away from paranomals. However, the teaser was so intriguing - I had to snap up a copy from NetGalley.Cat Sharp is so utterly familiar to me. Like her, I've always had an affinity for technology. I can't say I'm quite as gifted, but I know how she feels when she manages to bring a server back to life.And Marius. *sigh* Oh Marius. I want to know everything about Marius. Please Ms. Wyman give me more. I beg for many, many, many sequels. Th [...]


    3. I've read so much urban fantasy that I tend to be critical of it. It has to be really good and fresh to grip me. Wild Card did just that. Wyman uses the vivid backdrop of Las Vegas to depict an unusual face-off of the old trickster gods. Cat is a snarky red-head with a knack for computers, but her day job is interrupted by the whims of Eris, who owns her soul. When Cat finds that Eris has thrown Cat's soul into a card game match between trickster gods, all hell breaks loose. Literally. The gods [...]


    4. This was a very interesting book, it took a while for all the major pieces to come together. This is a new author, both to me and to the masses. I really enjoyed her story telling and she had a great concept. Loads of action and intrigue to go around.She lost me a bit in the romance, cause there really wasn't much of anything there. Marius never gave me any love vibes, he was too concerned with his own well-being to ever really think of Cat. I did feel bad for his uh, situation, but not enough t [...]


    5. (In the interest of full disclosure, I should state first that I count author Jamie Wyman as a friend, although geography and time constraints have sadly prevented us from becoming close. I was more than a little apprehensive, therefore, about reading her book; not that I thought her incapable of writing something good, but because I hate having to tell someone I genuinely like and respect that the project they've loved and labored over has serious problems and may well be stillborn. Tl;dr: this [...]


    6. 3 starsCatherine Sharp is a technomancer (she can fix things, anything that connect to technology). She lose her soul to Eris, because a stupid act that she'd commit 8 years ago. When she think she will be free from the bitch goddess, turn that Eris wager her soul in a poker game. Not just an ordinary game, but a game between the gods of trick, mischief and mayhems. Cat, with the help of Marius, a satyr that cursed by Zeus so he can't feel any pleasure, try to collect a chip from gods that wager [...]


    7. WILD CARD makes perfect use of Las Vegas, turning the lights and the glamor of the Strip into a backdrop for battling gods, deadly monsters, and the battered and broken bit players just trying to break even. Both Cat and Marius have quite a bit of baggage, and knowing who you can trust in the city of sin is even more difficult with immortal agendas muddying the waters.Both the strength and weakness of WILD CARD is how many unanticipated twists move the story. Some work beautifully, adding extra [...]


    8. If you are looking for a story that will take you spinning and racing because it is chalkfull of adventure and drama than look no further and try this out for size. This girl really had to stay on her toes or that might have been all she wrote lol. Boy she was in a pickle but that is what happens when you no longer own your soul and someone else does and you are at their beck and call. Cat just might get to make this her last job if it really is legit but seriously I wonder why she thought truth [...]


    9. WILD CARD is about Catherine Sharp, an IT professional in Las Vegas, whose soul belongs to Eris, Goddess of Discord. Cat learns that Eris has bet her soul in an all-deity poker game, and Cat finds herself in a race against the next hand to figure out a way to get her soul back for herself.WILD CARD is one of those rare urban fantasy novels that isn’t about a girl in a love triangle with an angel and a demon, or about a paranormal detective or monster hunterwhich means that in addition to being [...]


    10. Looks like this is going to be a series and a rather good one at that! The book description drew me in but the author by far succeeded my expectation. This was a new twist for me. The Gods playing for a human soul that isn't what it appeared to be. It just goes to show that even the Gods who have all the power want more. This book had me laughing and at times eager to see what the next move is. This book was highly enjoyable with wonderfully descriptive characters and a new twist on a paranormal [...]


    11. This was an enjoyable read and I could not believe how quickly I finished it. It felt that I had no sooner sat down with it then I was finished.The story moved along at a great pace, had loveable characters and a fantastic story as well.I look forward to having the opportunity of reading more by Jamie Wyman in the future.


    12. In Las Vegas, everyone hopes that Lady Luck will be on their side, but for Cat Sharp, luck has been rather elusive. Her soul was won by Eris, the Greek goddess of discord and ever since, Cat has been at her beck and call. She's longed for freedom, and when Cat learns that her soul is at stake in yet another poker game, she decides to take control. Eris tells her that if she can collect the poker chip that belongs to each of the four other gods who are playing the game, she might be able to win h [...]


    13. What’s better than a Las Vegas setting? Hitting Sin City with this gal by your side! In an unusual (but eventually explained circumstance), Catherine is allowed into the world of the immortals. It seems she bargained with Eris, the goddess of strife, and lost her soul in the negotiations. Wild Card by Jamie Wyman bets on Cat (couldn’t resist!) to attend a huge bash at Caesar’s Palace summoned by the deity herself. If Cat cooperates, her servitude may be terminated. How can she pass it up? [...]


    14. Spunky N Sassy Rating: 4.0~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~Catherine Sharp's life has not been hers for ten years since Eris, the Greek Goddess of Discord. What she thinks is a normal day but turns into one she will never forget. She finds out Eris is betting her soul away during a poker game with five Gods. Some of which test Cat over the next day. With the help of a Satyr, who is also in debt to Eris "helps" Cat along her journey but he wants something in return. This was a fun s [...]


    15. I really enjoyed this read. That characters were vivid and engaging and the pacing was lovely. I especially enjoyed how real everyone and plot was (even though it involved gods). The depictions of the different pantheons were also entertaining and witty. Highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys stories of mortals being tormented by fickle gods.


    16. Mon avis en FrançaisMy English review I was quite intrigued by the synopsis and the cover when I saw them. An urban fantasy book? Check. Gods? Check. An original story with a great heroine? Double Check! Yes, as you can see, this book is a real surprise for me and I took great pleasure in reading something original.Cat is a young woman like any other if not a detail, she no longer has her soul. Because of an unfortunate event, her soul was deposed and played so she became a pawn in the service [...]


    17. In the interests of full disclosure, Ms. Wyman and I share an agent. But trust me: if I hadn't enjoyed the bajeezus out of this book, I wouldn't have been moved to write this review.I cracked open (so to speak) my copy of Wild Card on a flight from LA to Chicago, and it was a perfect traveling companion. Perhaps the only shortcoming it had was that I read it so quickly that there was still a solid hour and a half left in my flight by the time I hit "The End."Urban fantasy is my pet genre, and th [...]


    18. Review posted on my blog, Becky on Books.Wow--I absolutely loved this book! Originally I wanted to read it because of the mythology angle--as a junior high social studies and English teacher, I get to teach all kinds of mythology, and I love to read modern takes on the ancient legends. What originally sold me, though, was the fact that Eris, the goddess of discord was in it--how many novels can make that claim? There just isn't enough fiction out there with any kind of role in it for the deity w [...]


    19. I received an ARC through NetGalley.Wild Card was such a fun surprise! I loved the mix of all kinds of mythology (Greek, Norse, Hawaiian, etc), combined with the fae, along with humans with special abilities! And it's set in Las Vegas! Our heroine is Catherine Sharpe, a technician for the casinos on the Strip. She's also bound to the goddess of discord, and it's not a pleasant fact. But Eris has bet Cat's soul in a high stakes poker game. Cat wants to be free from the goddess, but when the other [...]


    20. Wild Card by Jamie Wyman* I received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review*Catherine Sharp has had a run of bad luck and love which has led to her soul belonging to Eris, the Goddess of Discord. She may have a life but she is expected to be at Eris beck and call. When the Goddess offers her a chance to get her soul back, how can she refuse? She just never expected to be tested by all the players in the game. Along with Marius she sets out to retrieve poke [...]


    21. This book… wow. Seriously, folks. This book is a spectacular, sexy, snarky spree through sleaze and skill. Or some other equally nifty alliteration, because Ms. Wyman has managed to grab my by my wrists, spin me around, and let go so my brain starts rattling around in my head like a pinball machine.I have always been a fan of multi-deity pantheon fiction. This amazing book takes that to a whole new level, introducing multiple pantheons who not only exist, but interact with each other and own s [...]


    22. This review and more can be seen at gothicmoms/Truly one of the best non-vampire books ever!!! There's nothing like a good poker game to get the blood flowing, especially when what's at stake is your very own soul.Catherine "Cat" Sharp is just your average run of the mill tech geek, or so it seems even to herself. What she never knew was that she is actually a technomage, able to communicate and control all electronics and machinery, a very powerful one. But, since her powers have been bound unb [...]

    24. How would you like to have your soul used as a poker chip - a very expensive one - but still a poker chip. Catherine has managed to have her soul traded not once, but it looks like twice now, in a high stakes poker game of the gods. Now, it's not just Greek gods we're talking about here, although Eris does play a very large roll, but gods from across the pantheons. It was really cool watching the different dieties interact with Cat, Marius, and each other. Of course no one, except the gods, is r [...]


    25. Cat just wants her soul back from Eris the goddess of Discord. Between working her tech support job and doing jobs for Eris she has no life. Now she finds just when she may be free her soul is on a gambling table with five gods. If she can get the chips they carry she may get free. However with Gods and Goddesses you never know what they will throw at you. So with the help of Marius a satyr indebted to Eris she has to find the chips before time runs out. They don't get along and each has a secre [...]


    26. It was bad enough that gods gambled with human souls, but Catherine Sharp’s soul just had to be won by the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris. As if working a dead-end tech support job didn’t suck the life out of her as it was. Now, Cat finds herself performing random tasks for the goddess in her free time.But when Coyote, the Native American trickster himself, claims to have won her own soul in Mayhem’s weekly poker game, Cat wants in on the action. With five sneaky gods upping the ante, Cat [...]


    27. This debut urban fantasy novel is a refreshing and unique take on magic and mythology, that involves gods in the in the glittering lights of Las Vegas.Catherine Sharp’s life sucks, not only is she working at a dead end job, she’s stuck performing random task to the Greek goddess of Discord, Eris, who just happens to own her soul. When her soul is anted up in a poker game with five sneaky gods, Catherine must find a way to collect the winning chips that could save her life. She’s joined by [...]


    28. This book was a roller coaster for me - not only because of the story but especially because I started not very enthusiastic, was swept away, was angry and not very excited, and loved the ende story is about Cat - a specialist for computers and Tech, who lost her soul to the goddess Eris and is now working for her release. Eris promise her freedom for one last task she has to fulfil together with Marius, a satyr, who is also working for Eris. the story spans two to three days and there is so muc [...]

    30. I'm hooked! I thought this book was gonna be boring because to tell you the truth the beginning was kinda humdrum and the satyr half man half goat well that kinda sounded yucky! Bahhh! Was I wrong! Catherine is a tech with a gift for connecting with all geeky stuff and that's a commodity that comes in handy when you live in Vegas. Poor Cat has had no luck since she declared her love,body and soul to her lover that in return sold Cats soul to a goddes for a debt racked up, now that same goddess h [...]
