Review quote

"Readers will be happy to slip back into Black's elaborate, fascinating world of workers, curses, and the seeming ease with which everyone has learned to live in a world where no one, not even family, can be truly trusted, and this sequel offers satisfying additional glimpses into this nearly familiar but ultimately shockingly different world."--"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" "Dark, disturbing fare, crafted by a master; readers of the trilogy's first will be supremely satisfied."--"Kirkus Reviews" * "Black again delivers complex characters and a nicely developed alternate universe where magic workers are social pariahs. This powerful, edgy dark fantasy won't disappoint Black's fans."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review "The Curse Workers series continues to offer a sleek and stylish blend of urban fantasy and crime noir."--"Booklist"show more
