Red Glove (Curse Workers, #2)
I've enjoyed all of Holly Black's novels. She's got a writing style that I really enjoy -- nothing too flowery but not straight-up exposition either, just a great blend of both, plus an ear for excellent dialogue, a touch of snark, and a dab hand at humor. What I enjoy most about her books is that in her capable hands, typical YA fantasy becomes something more. That's the case with the Curse Workers series. It's not like anything that's been done in YA before. It's a great mash-up of boarding schools, curse magic, political commentary, and old-school crime lords. Even better, it's well-written and engaging -- I flew through this one in just a few hours. Can't wait for Book #3 to come out.
