Cassel comes from a family of Curse Workers, people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they’re all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists. But not Cassel. He hasn’t got magic, so he’s an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail, he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Cassel has carefully built up a facade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his facade starts to crumble when he finds himself sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He’s noticing other disturbing things too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s part of a huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by L.a. Smith | 12/24/2013

    " Great YA urban fantasy with an interesting twist: the central character is male, if you can believe it. Author Holly black creates and interesting alternative reality in which magic workers live among normal humans facing prejudice and criminalization of their natural talents. Twists and turns of magic and memory weave a dark and disturbing tale around a genuinely likable (if not always admirable) central character. "
