I went through this book like I was falling down a gravity well. Part fairy-tale, part X-Men-style superhero story, part the Sopranos! Dark, suspenseful, full of plot twists in a detailed universe just next door to our own. Cassel is a teen boy with a painful past. Moreover, he’s the only member of his family without the talent to ‘work’, to put curses on people through the touch of a bare hand. As criminal clans maneuver for power by using the gifts of the curse workers, Cassel finds himself at the center of a storm of ruthless conspiracy and revenge– but in a world where both memory and emotions can be manipulated, can he be sure of anything he thinks he knows? First in the Curse Workers series, but this volume resolves strongly and can stand alone. (submitted by library patron DF)
