Series: Curse Workers #1
Author: Holly Black
My Rating: B
I read this a while back and am just now reviewing it. I have to say, it still scares me a little bit in White Cat how they can CHANGE people into other things. I think Black did an amazing job with writing this book.
Cassel's character is perfect. For a scam-artist anyway. I mean, he IS a scammer. But, I don't blame him for what he does. Everyone has to live, right? ;)
Lila is a stubborn girl, but I can see why she is the way she is. Her father isn't really a good example for her, but what can she do? You can't pick who your parents are, so you have to do with what you have.
I admit I didn't start this book until the last possible moment, I wasn't all that excited about reading it. I mean, the genre just didn't seem like one I'd really get into. I read paranormal romance, yes, but magic and wizards and stuff, it's not my favorite thing to read about. I do enjoy some of the books though.
I was actually shocked to find out that I couldn't sleep at night because I was wondering what would happen next and who would do what next. It was rather exhausting to go to bed and just THINK about it.
I will definitely read this fast-pacing and truly unique series to the end!
Don't worry, you can always read the next book in this must-read series:
