I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, WHITE CAT and BLACK GLOVE. They’re creative, interesting, and very well-written. So, of course, I’m looking forward to the third installment, BLACK HEART. But what’s up with the cover? I mean, I like it–kind of a 70’s vibe–but it doesn’t go with the other two. Although, the Kindle and Audiobook covers do match the other two. Strange…or maybe it’s just wrong in GoodReads and they’re planning on matching up in printing. Guess we’ll see, huh?
**EDIT: Seems this design IS part of the Curse Workers series. There are new covers for the first two books as well, as revealed on Holly Black’s blog (HERE). Well, alrighty then.
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.
So, what are you waiting on?
