Fantasy | Young Adult Paranormal
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 faÃ§ade of normalcy, blending into the
crowd. But his faÃ§ade 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.
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.
