White Cat Cover & Release Date

The cover of Holly Black’s new novel, White Cat, now officially has a cover. Take a look:

Pretty spesh, huh? Here’s the blurb as it appears on the back of the cover:


Cassel comes from a family of curse workers—people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they’re all criminals. Many become mobsters and con artists. But not Cassel. He hasn’t got magic, so he’s an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail—he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.

Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he finds himself sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He’s noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s part of a huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to out-con the con men.

Holly Black has created a gripping tale of mobsters and dark magic where a single touch can bring love—or death–and your dreams might be more real than your memories.

White Cat is scheduled for release on May 4, 2010.

  • I saw this on SciFiguy.ca last week I think and just as I said there, I hate this cover. It’s very gross! :(

  • I love the cover for White Cat and just read the book last night. It totally rocks! I hope there will be more about Cassel and his family in the future from Holly Black!

  • Who is the name of the fellow on the cover (the model for it?) Does anyone know?
