Curse Workers 3

Black Heart by Holly Black, UK edition cover.

Black Heart (Curse Workers #3)
by Holly Black

Published: 19th April 2012

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.

I’m really looking forward to reading the conclusion to Holly Black’s fantastic Curse Workers series. It is a series I have really enjoyed so far, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the book – if I lived in the States I could get my hands on it now, but as it is I have to wait.

What book(s) are you waiting on this week?

    • It’s very frustrating isn’t it, especially when you don’t realise until you go to buy it :S

      I really love this version of the cover. When I manage to get hold of it, I’m hoping it has this cover. Although the US version’s not that bad either.
