"Readers will be happy to slip back into Black's elaborate,
fascinating world of workers, curses, and the seeming ease with
which everyone has learned to live in a world where no one, not
even family, can be truly trusted, and this sequel offers
satisfying additional glimpses into this nearly familiar but
ultimately shockingly different world."--"Bulletin of the Center
for Children's Books"
"The Curse Workers series continues to offer a sleek and stylish blend of urban fantasy and crime noir."--"Booklist"
"Dark, disturbing fare, crafted by a master; readers of the trilogy's first will be supremely satisfied."--"Kirkus Reviews"
* "Black again delivers complex characters and a nicely developed alternate universe where magic workers are social pariahs. This powerful, edgy dark fantasy won't disappoint Black's fans."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review
