Card Secrets Unlocked - My Review

Card Secrets Unlocked is an excellent ebook. There are more than 20 card effects and fully illustrated. Majority of the card effects can be done without the need to special set-up the deck and some required set-up in advance.

There are a few card effects require to use the Faro Shuffle, Himber Wallet, business cards, glass tumbler, etc. All in all, there are many great card effects in this collection.

The ebook also has a section that specifically devoted to stack deck, Orbital Stack & Magnum Stack. For those of you that favourite stack deck routine, perhaps this might interest you.

Below are some of my favourites:

Crystal Clear Transpo
A wonderful little effect and one of my favourites. For those of you card transposition lovers, I am sure you will like this. It's very simple and very eye appealing. There is no duplicate card used in this effect.

Here Lies the Truth
I find that almost every magicians love Lie Detector plot and I am one of them. In this version, believe it or not, there is no heavy card sleights used and it's just self-working. This is one of my favourites.

It's in the Stars
This effect is quite strong and I love this effect. There is no setup and you are able to find two spectators' thought of cards in an amazing manner.

The Problem with Hofzinser
I like Hofzinser's Ace Problem and in this version, it's very easy to perform and this effect is just sounds great.

There is a bonus section and Peter providea his great effect "Miracle Thot" for free which marketed in the 1990's. It's a great effect I would say.

Highly recommended!
