White Cat Holly Black




White Cat


The Curse Workers 1




Cassel has always known he killed Lila, but now the pieces are starting not to fit.



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 mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, 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.

Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts 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, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.



Holly Black has created a gripping tale of mobsters and dark magic where a single touch can bring love - or death - and your dreams might be more real than your memories.

Como utilizar estes poderes é algo proibido por lei, todos - mesmo aqueles que não os possuem - são obrigados a sempre usarem luvas. Cassel não faz parte destes "amaldiçoados", mas el... leia mais
