“Changing is what people do when they have no options left.”
― Holly Black, Red Glove
In the second book in the Curse Workers Series, our coffee addled protagonist Cassel Sharpe is still clever as the devil and twice as pretty. Red Glove expands the world we were introduced into in White Cat, something I think every good sequel needs to do. In this novel, we meet new characters, get to see more into Wallingford and learn more about curse worker politics
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.
