A little background: A curse worker is someone who has a supernatural ability he / she can use through skin to skin touch. A dream worker can invade dreams, a memory worker can steal memories, a physical worker can break bones, a luck worker can give luck. The rarest curse worker is a transformation worker who can transform a person into an animal or an object through a touchWhile I was reading this book I kept thinking of that old Cher song, Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves. Cassel comes from a family of curse workers and con artists. But he is looked down on by his brothers because he isn't able to work curses. After a mysterious white cat appears in his dreams his world starts to come apart at the seams and he discovers his brothers have been hiding things from him. This book is saturated with information and occasionally I went into detail overload but it was such an interesting premise that I couldn't help but love it. The minute I finished it I jumped right into book two. That said, I don't know if I can deal with the level of detail in this series for long. It's a bit like looking at a Where's Waldo picture. It's interesting and all that but look at it for too long and you're going to get a head-ache.
