The cons get craftier and the stakes rise ever higher in the riveting sequel to White Cat—now in paperback!

After rescuing his brothers from Zacharov’s retribution and finding out that Lila, the girl he has loved his whole life, will never, ever be his, Cassel is trying to reestablish some kind of normalcy in his life. That was never going to be easy for someone from a worker family that’s tied to one of the big crime families—and whose mother’s cons get more reckless by the day. But Cassel is coming to terms with what it means to be a transformation worker, and he’s figuring out how to have friends.

Except normal doesn’t last very long. Soon Cassel is being courted by both sides of the law and is forced to confront his past—a past he remembers only in scattered fragments, and one that could destroy his family and his future. Cassel will have to decide whose side he wants to be on, because neutrality is not an option. And then he will have to pull off his biggest con ever to survive….

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great continuation of The Curse Workers Red Glove was almost good as White Cat. I loved the mob and con elements of the story – they fit seamlessly because curse work itself is illegal in the captivating world Holly Black has created. There are also so many mysteries threaded throughout, the most prominent one of course being who murdered Cassel’s eldest brother Philip (it’s never who you expect, but someone you should have known). This is a sequel definitely worth reading.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not going to continue the series The first half was more entertaining than the second half which was quite slow. :( The big reveal was quite disappointing as well.
