After finishing White Cat, the first book in the Curse Workers series, I knew I immediately wanted to jump into Red Glove, the sequel. Thankfully, I had it on hand as well.

When Cassel Sharpe learns that his curse worker brothers were manipulating his memories, he also learns something else – instead of being useless like he always thought, he finds out that he in fact, is the most dangerous curse worker of all. With one touch of Cassel Sharpe’s ungloved hand, he can turn anything he wants into something else.

This was how Lila, his childhood crush, became a white cat. Cassel’s brothers manipulated his memories making him think that he actually killed her. But now that Lila is human again, Cassel has even more problems. His mother has cursed Lila to love him. He has no idea whether to believe anything Lila does and says or not.

When his older brother is murdered, Cassel finds himself wanted by both the Feds and the mob. He knows that he must use his con abilities in order to stay ahead of the game and stay safe until he can find out exactly what is happening.

I have to say, Red Glove was even better than the first book in the series. It had more action in my opinion and definitely held my attention more. Black has created a world that pulls you in and mesmerizes you with each chapter. I definitely look forward to the third installment in the series, Black Heart which is set to be release some time next year.
