Series Curse Workers #1

Cassel comes from a family of curse workers —people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail —he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago. Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen. Holly Black has created a gripping tale of mobsters and dark magic where a single touch can bring love —or death —and your dreams might be more real than your memories.

I picked this book up because the cover looked interesting

What I liked the Most? New type of paranormal

What I liked the Least? Sleep walking

Review: Okay I am not usually fond of male driven books but this story rocked. I loved the world building was typical modernish bit the para type was truly unique and interesting. I will totally look for the next book in the series.

Recommended to: Anyone interested in new style para
