“Changing is what people do when they have no options left.”
― Holly Black, Red Glove
The plot wasn't as tight and concise as the first one. This novel reads less like a con job and more like a murder mystery While this series is a fantasy, White Cat felt more realistic than Red Glove. That isn't to say it's awful, it just doesn't flow as well as it did in the first book.
All of your favorite characters are back and you get to learn more about them and even some surprises revelations along the way. Cassel's mom is quite a character. In the first book she is someone in the background and in this book we actually meet her. She came to life the most for me and I can't wait to see what she is up to in the next book.
This is still an enjoyable read. I figured out the ending pretty early on and I still enjoyed the book. You can never quite predict what Cassel is going to do next.
I highly suggest the audiobooks for this series. They are narrated by Academy Award nominated actor Jesse Eisenberg and he really brings the story to life. Go to a library or get a free trial at audible. I promise this one won't dissapoint.
I am really excited for the final Curse Workers novel, Black Heart to come out in April. I think I will actually read this one instead of listening to it. The new covers are just so pretty.
