Red Glove (Curse Workers)

Red Glove - Holly Black The fast paced con world, unlike any other, that Holly Black has created will definitely keep you on your toes. The stakes are higher, the love is more strangled, and you will be guessing until the very end.Red Glove picks up where White Cat left off. Cassel is trying to spend time with his recently-jailed released mother, cope with the fact that the girl he loves has been worked to love him, and come to terms with knowing he's a tranformation worker. Returning to school and his old ways seems easy enough until someone close to him is murdered. Cassel will do whatever must to figure out what happened and People start to come at him from every angle, including the feds and Zacharov himself. Cassel must start to trust people as he tries to solve a murder and pull off a whole new con.I have to say, unfortunately, Red Glove didn't impress me as much as White Cat did. Don't get me wrong, I loved so many aspects of this book and I still really enjoy this series. I really loved watching the emotional roller coaster that Cassel goes through with Lila in this installment. At the end of this book, with their situation, I was just like WHAT?! Other than that, I really adore this world that Holly Black so cleverly created. It's so unique, awesome, and dark.There are definitely some twists in this book I did not see coming, and I was pleasantly surprised. The reason Red Glove fell short for me is because I just felt like the action was rising and rising and I thought there was going to be some huge twist, but there wasn't. Does that mean the book was bad? Heck no! The book was still a fantastic read. Does it mean everyone will feel the same way as me? No, of course not. Maybe I set my expectations too high; I don't know.Overall Red Glove was a good read and I am defintely looking forward to the conclusion in BLACK HEART.PS. There's a JACE reference. Loved it :)
