For
all my excitement about Holly Black's new series The Curseworkers, White Cat COMPLETELY disappointed me.
I was let down by everything about this book, like the slow-moving plot
and boring characters. Reading 20 pages felt like reading 100 pages. I
can't even count how many times I yawned and almost fell asleep.

The
beginning was strong, and I thought the book was going to be great. But
then it just got slower and slower, and sloooower. I had only 70 pages
left, but I couldn't put myself through anymore, so I quit reading.

I
love the cover, but that's about the only thing I liked. I would advise
anyone to not spend precious, hard-earned money for this book. You will
regret it!

I loved Holly's book Tithe, wasn't happy with Valiant, and didn't bother picking up Ironside. After trudging through White Cat, I can only think that her
writing is slipping.
