Waiting on Black Heart

I put off reading White Cat, the first in Holly Black's Curse Workers series for the longest time, because I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype, but once I'd read the first book, I knew that I didn't want to delay in reading the sequel. I read Red Glove in a flash. Now I've got to wait until April of 2012 for the third book! Torture, I tell you, torture!


Black Heart
by Holly Black
Margaret K. McElderry
April 2012

Cassel Sharpe knows he’s been used as an assassin, but he’s trying to put all that behind him. He’s trying to be good, even though he grew up in a family of con artists and cheating comes as easily as breathing to him. He’s trying to do the right thing, even though the girl he loves is inextricably connected with crime. And he’s trying to convince himself that working for the Feds is smart, even though he’s been raised to believe the government is the enemy.

But with a mother on the lam, the girl he loves about to take her place in the Mob, and new secrets coming to light, the line between what’s right and what’s wrong becomes increasingly blurred. When the Feds ask Cassel to do the one thing he said he would never do again, he needs to sort out what’s a con and what’s truth. In a dangerous game and with his life on the line, Cassel may have to make his biggest gamble yet—this time on love.

  1. Awesome! I just read White Cat a few weeks ago and I really liked it. Haven't gotten to book 2 yet though but I hear it's also good. Great pick!
