white cat

Book 95/100 - White Cat by Holly Black

For some reason, Holly Black has never been a writer that appealed to me. Her Spiderwick books seemed boring and I think her association with Cassandra Clare bugs me. Even the blurb for this book didn't excite me but I tried it based on some positive reviews.

It turned out to be really enjoyable. It's not particularly innovative or anything, but it is a fun, easy read. It didn't bug me at all.
There are a few places where it was, imo, under-written. Black could have amped up the tension and made the ~reveal parts more exciting. I also found it hard to like Cassel in places. His propensity towards cons and dishonestly just don't sit well with me.

The family dynamic and plotting and friends were interesting enough to get me to read all in one sitting and the little sting in the tail was delicious. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series. 7/10.
