I love this new Holly Black series. The book is written from first person point of view which is different because I'm used to reading Holly's stuff in third person. With this series, Holly takes us into the world of curse workers. Some cursers are mobsters that use their magical power as a weapon. Everyone wears gloves because your hands can be deadly. From the beginning, we learn that Cassel is the only member of his family who doesn't have a special power. He wakes up one morning on the roof of his school and has no idea how he got there. We also learn that he killed his best friends a few years prior. The story is a great mystery and every member of his family is a suspect. I don't want to talk too much about it because I don't want to spoil it for anyone. All I will say is that Holly is a great writer and this is a must read for anyone who likes fantasy, suspence, mystery, and a little romance.
