In a world where magic is illegal, Cassel Sharpe has the most deadly ability of all. With one touch, he can transform any object—including a person—into something else entirely. And that makes him a wanted man. The Feds are willing to forgive all his past crimes if he’ll only leave his con artist family behind and go straight. But why does going straight feel so crooked?

For one thing, it means being on the opposite side of the law from Lila, the girl he loves. She’s the daughter of a mob boss and though Cassel is pretty sure she can never love him back, he can’t stop obsessing over her. Which would be bad enough, even if her father wasn’t keeping Cassel’s mother prisoner until she returns the priceless diamond she scammed off him years ago. Too bad she can’t remember where she put it.

The Feds say they need Cassel to get rid of a powerful man who is spinning dangerously out of control. But if they want Cassel to use his unique talent to hurt people, what separates the good guys from the bad ones? With no easy answers and no one he can trust, love might be the most dangerous gamble of all. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zandra | 2/18/2014

    " I found this one to be the weakest of the Curse Workers trilogy. While reading it, I couldn't wait for it to be over so that I could move on to another book. This time, I couldn't care less about Cassel and his family. I think the story got lost in all of the other things going on and was on the verge of being confusing. However, I still recommend this series to teen and adults who crave suspence and a unique story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/14/2014

    " Not quite as complex as the previous books in the series, but still enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/6/2014

    " It starts off slow, but by the end this book establishes itself as the best in the trilogy. If you liked the first two books, you should definitely give this one a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 11/27/2013

    " A great ending to this series! I loved Cassel's struggle of wanting to be "good" but trying to figure out exactly what that meant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 11/26/2013

    " it was an awesome mob and criminal events "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karina | 5/11/2013

    " It was very slow toward the beginning but then around page 230 began to get interesting but then quickly faded back. Some events were great but this was a very slow book. I still recommend that you read the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hallie | 10/14/2012

    " I thought this was a solid, well-done trilogy. The ending - despite many surprises along the way - seemed as if it was the only one there could have been. And it was inevitable in a way which was 'happy' for Cassel and yet really not any kind of happiness I could feel satisfied with. "
