Cassel comes from a family of Curse Workers: people with the ability to change your emotions, your luck, your memories, and even change you into something else with just one touch. And, since performing Curse Work is illegal, all Curse Workers are criminals. But Cal has no magic. He is the only normal person in a family of conmen.
Lately, Cal has been waking up to find that he was sleepwalking. Haunted by a vision of a white cat, he begins to notice disturbing things happening around him, especially his brothers, who may be using him for their own purposes.
I really love all the books by Holly Black, and have read most, if not all, of her books at the library. This series was a great work of art, and I was hooked right from the start.
