Red Glove (Curse Workers)

Red Glove - Holly Black 3.5Definitely liked the second installment more than the previous. Cassel's life is starting to get messy. And the messier it gets, the more fascinating it gets. I like that Cassel is both good and not good, and that he is brilliant at the con -- for the most part. I like that Cassel actually has friends now, as I think this shows how his character is changing.As with the previous book, I do love how seamlessly curse work has been woven into mob culture. I think this is one aspect about this series that I really, truly enjoy. Will definitely pick up the next in the series, but not the audiobook this time.
