White Cat (Curse Workers, Book 1)

White Cat - Holly Black I love how seamlessly Holly Black has woven organized crime and magic together. The world in Curse Workers is so real and well-thought out that it is easy to imagine how something like this would play out in real life.The story itself was a bit twisty turny and it was fabulous. Cassel was an intriguing mixture of both good and bad, and so very fascinating when he is on the con. When he starts to unravel the mystery, just... wow. As Alissa said, it's intense.This was a solid start to the series. I will definitely pick up Red Glove, though I will likely not seek out the audiobook.Audiobook specific: Meh. Not my favorite narrator, and often hard to distinguish between characters.
