Waiting On Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, lets us book hoarding bloggers highlight a book we’re excited for each week. This is my third week participating and I’m already addicted. This week I’m waiting on Black Heart by Holly Black.
GoodReads: I usually list the GoodReads description, but it is a little spoilery for the series, so I will say this. Black Heart is the third (and I believe final) book set in a world where the mob is organized around illegal magic. Cassel is an anti-hero who grew up learning the art of the con and now spends his time trying to walk the fine line between right and wrong, himself and his family, and the law and the mob.
Why I’m Excited: I LOVE THE CURSE WORKER SERIES. I love the characters, I love the plot, I love the cons, and I love the conflict. Black always surprises me, always rivets me, and I fully expect this to be one of the best books I read all year. I recommend this series to everybody and think it will appeal to teenage boys who don’t want to read. That is a WIN!!!!
I will admit my disappointment in the repackaging of the series. I still love the original covers, but if these will get more people to read this series, then once again… win! Black Heart Comes out April 3, 2012!
