RED GLOVE is the perfect second book. What I love about this book and this series is that we learn more about Cassel as he learns more about himself. We're not told everything about him and we follow his journey through his discovery of not only who he is, but who he wants to be. I love the twists and the turns this book takes. I love Zacharov, his menacing character is the drive behind Cassel's self discovery. Holly Black's world is a world where I would love to put myself in and become a curse worker. Magic, mobs and cons? Count me in.
