Description - White Cat by Holly Black

Cassel is cursed. Cursed by the memory of the fourteen year old girl he murdered. Life at school is a constant trial. Life at home even worse. No-one at home is ever going to forget that Cassel is a killer. No-one at home is ever going to forget that he isn't a magic worker.

Cassel's family are one of the big five crime families in America. Ever since magic was prohibited in 1929 magic workers have been driven underground and into crime. And while people still need their touch, their curses, their magical killings, their transformations, times have been hard. His granddad has been driven to drink, his mother is in prison and his brothers detest him as the only one of their family who can't do magic.

But there is a secret at the centre of Cassel's family and he's about to inherit it. It's terrifying and that's the truth.

The White Cat is a stunning novel of a world changed by magic. In this world only 1% of the population can work magic but they have the power of nightmares.

Book Review: White Cat by Holly Black - Reviewed by (06 May 2012)

White Cat sat unfinished on my bed side table for months. So long, in fact, that I can’t remember why I stopped reading in the first place. It was probably something stupid like: For a book about cats and magic, there’s not enough cats and magic. (That is a genuine representation of my thought process.)

When I began reading it again, I was instantly absorbed into the story. I’m a little ashamed that I put this book down. Each scene was expertly written and well-paced. Holly Black sure knows how to write a story. White Cat was deadly addicting once I reached that halfway point (which was where I’d originally stopped reading).

I’m a huge fan of male protagonists, especially when they’re written in first, and let me tell you, I LOVED Cassel. He was so brilliant and entertaining and this story left me holding my breath. I can hear Red Glove calling me!
