Black Heart (Curse Workers #3)
by Holly Black
by Holly Black
Release Date: April 3rd 2012
by Margaret K. McElderry
Hardcover, 320 pages
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.
I love this series! It's one of my favorite YA series ever! I had the chance to read the first two books back-to-back, but the second book ended with a killer cliffhanger and the wait for the next book has been driving me crazy, grrr! I can't wait to see what's going to happen with Cassel and Lila! (oh, Cassel... He really deserves some good things to happen to him for a change...) Ms Black sure knows how and when to throw the twists and turns to keep her fans on the edge of their seat and always craving for more! And since 2011 is almost over, the wait for the last book of the trilogy doesn't seem to be that long anymore... does it?
Also, I know the Curse Workers series is getting a completely new look and I really like it (that purple is cool and everything), but I still prefer the old one, I think it's more appropriate for the series. Oh well...
What are you waiting on today?
P.S. If you haven't started this series yet, I highly recommend it! I think you can still get the first book on audio for free HERE (I listened to the audiobook as well and I loved it! My glowing review)
P.P.S. For my fellow Romanian readers who celebrate their Name Day today (myself included, hehe), Happy Name Day! I hope you're having a wonderful one!
