White Cat

by Holly Black

Grade: Good
Story: Cassel is part of a family of criminals. Kind of like The Godfather, except I haven't seen The Godfather, so I'm only guessing. Anyway. He starts having nightmares about a white cat, and soon his whole world starts falling apart.

This has bunches of my favourite things in it: brothers, con men, cool magic systems, high-end schools, and unreliable narrators. I especially like the first and the last of these.

So I really liked it. But somehow...I don't know. It wasn't quite as good as I expected. I think I was expecting more from his brothers, because I do so like book siblings.

But enough on the negative. I really liked it, I read it in one night, and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
