So my name is Rashika and I am weird. I read a lot (duh) and I watch a lot of TV. I also like to review. Check out my blog (where I co-blog with awesome people).
I haven't read a lot of books that are written in a Male Pov and the "some" I've read usually consist of dual POV's and The Maze Runner which was written by a male author so I didn't think there could be much that would go wrong.
I usually avoid male POV's written by females because after reading the extra's some authors provide in male pov. The authors made some of the guys sound so "girly" for the lack of a better term. I was annoyed because well you know I am pretty sure that's not all what guys think about they are as messed up as girls and they tend to have a lot of things on their mind other than their possible significant other.
But after reading reviews and seeing that people said that Holly did a good job with the male POV I decided to read it.
I wasn't disappointed.
It really was an amazing book. The whole concept of "curse workers" is great but the best part of the book was Cassel. The author nailed it. I was so happy while reading the book because you could see how well Cassel's character was written. He has become one of my all time favorite characters. Now I cannot go on and on about how well the author did with his character but you must know that he is a criminal (of sorts) and he acts like it. He doesn't assume himself to be the good guy but you can see how much he cares for him family and friends.
I love all the layers behind something and how every time Cassel discovers something there is more to the story. I also think he is rather realistic. You can feel how much he wants to be normal and how much he hates what his family does but he doesn't hate them for it. They are his family and he does love them no matter what. Even when his brothers aren't the best that they can be he loves them.
I also find the mystery aspect of the book intriguing. It's interesting how Cassel pieces the clues. I mean he is a professional criminal. He is good at that stuff but I love him for it.
I hope everyone reads this book and loves it as much as I did.
