    to wait until the last pages and eat my feelings up, chew them like the fucker you are and spit them the fuck out because you wanted to show how fucking badass you were.

    Fucking congratulations.

    I can't. I just fucking can't.

    I don't even know what I'm feeling and I kinda cried and I'm probably still crying internally and JESUS CHRIST I HATE YOU, YOU STUPID BOOK. I love you, though.

    I can't believe you're over. Please let me be delirious. Please let me high and when the effect of it blows over I'll still have more of you to read.

    I just...

    Fuck you, you shitfaced asshole of a book. Just, fuck you ok?

    I can't.

    Awwwwwwww!! I cannot belie

    Awwwwwwww!! I cannot believe how perfectly perfect that ended. I really wanted to write this super long review and make it an absolutely amazing ending to my reading spree of this series but...I dunno. It kind of feels right to just put down a few quotes and call it a day. After all, I don't want to beat a dead horse, right?

    -

    Loyal, in love, terrified to make the wrong decision....and utterly hopeless. I would follow his story anywhere-he's adorable.

    -

    WOW. I did NOT expect that. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't move, I was

    because of how scared I was for Cassel. I couldn't see any possible positive outcomes for my favorite little liar at the end of this one.

    -

    But wait! His heroic actions were amazing and they made me fall in love with him even more. I'm utterly obsessed with him, the unreliable little shit.

    -

    Ahhhh not much to say, but can I just express my undying shipping of Lila and Cassel?? 'Cuz

    Hmmmm....anyway....

    I love love LOVED this installment and I am so sad it's all over. It's beyond depressing that I will never read about Cassel and his fucked up life again. I put my Ipad down last night and felt a pang of sadness after I finished this story because I was smiling so big and so overwhelmed with happiness and it was just

    But it ended where it should have and all is right in the world. I won't mess with that. I am so glad I picked up this random series, because it was amazing and so unlike anything I've ever read. I will never forget it and I hope you give it a chance, too. :)

    Loved this last book so hard. I was fully invested in this fantasy world of trickery and mobs. The story went full circle on this last book and loved every moment of it. Definitely recommend to any young adult lovers.

    This series was seriously addicting, and I love, love, love Cassel! He's a character that will forever stick with me, and my favorite character by Holly Black thus far!

    We start this book out with Lila hating Cassel after book 2, and all the moments between the two of them were spectacular. I got mad, I said aww, I said aww again! They are so cute! Then there are twists and turns which kept me on my toes. Cassel's friend, Sam, was a lovable idiot! Cassel's brother seriously needs his own book!

    I like that things aren't black and white, and Cassel as well as the other characters all live in the gray area of life but still have good hearts! If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend it! So freaking good!

    WHY IS IT OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR???????????????????????

    4.5 stars

    Publishers need to stop with this cover-changing behavior. It's messing up my bookshelf and littering the world with mix-matching series.

    Cassel's journey to find his place in a world, where his value as a transformation worker is unprecedented, continues, and it seems he just can't catch a break. Everyone (Feds, mafia, his family) wants to use him one way or another, through threats, blackmail or shiny promises. But what is the right thing for him to do? Who to join? And what to take a stand against?

    I keep repeating myself talking about these books, how much like I like the cons and how entertaining it is to watch Cassel outsmart his much more powerful enemies. And although there is a certain slackness about a couple of story lines in this finale (for instance, the subplot about Cassel's classmate needing help in a blackmail scheme required a little more development)

    is still sufficiently mysterious and twisty. And the conclusion to Cassel's and Lila's story is both tied up and open-ended, just the way I like my endings to be.

    Basically, what I'm trying to say is that I stand by this series from the beginning to end. Holly Black created a unique world with unique magic and the characters I'd love to meet again.

    And the last thing. I can't finish reviewing this series without mentioning Jesse Eeisenberg who narrated the audio versions of the novels.

    For me, he was a major factor in getting me wildly attached to Cassel Sharpe. He added a layer of nerdy vulnerability and puppy charm to Cassel's character. What can I say? I have a bit of a thing for Jesse.

    The more I consider it, the more I wonder if I was just having a bad day when I read

    and found myself mostly underwhelmed by it. I still think that

    was this series' highest point and the other two installments never quite achieved what the opening book did, I just thought that

    had so much going on but Ms Black somehow managed to juggle it superbly so the plot never felt too much or overcrowded. And there was just a touch too much relationship drama going on in

    and

    for my tastes.

    However, I didn't have the same problems with this as I did with the second book, despite the relationship dramas. I still remained hooked throughout and enjoyed revisiting Cassel and his family. Though the main mystery occasionally got lost behind various subplots involving blackmail and Sam and Daneca's tumultuous relationship, I enjoyed these mini-stories enough this time around that I wasn't bored.

    My final conclusions on the curse workers series is that it is most definitely worth reading. It stands out so much from all the other YA urban fantasy novels that are available today, as of yet I haven't found anything quite like it - which is a huge plus! It's a unique world with an array of interesting characters - some of which you can both love and hate equally - and excellent mystery stories. I don't know if it's because I'm extremely dense or because Ms Black is such a talented writer, but she always manages to surprise me.

    As a reader who has had some not so great experiences with Black's other work, I can say that this is the kind of series you should still read if you hated

    , and I am awaiting the publication of

    with a mixture of excitement and apprehension.

    I listened to this book as an unabridged audio. It's read by Jesse Eisenberg who does a decent but not awesome job. All of his characters pretty much sound the same. It was a good end to the series but for some reason it seemed to lag in places and get a wee bit boring. Who knows, maybe it was just my mood. It couldn't seem to grab and keep my attention for long like the previous two installments. There was a lot of stuff going on; mob jobs, double crosses, romantic entanglements and small doses

There was a lot of stuff going on; mob jobs, double crosses, romantic entanglements and small doses of dark humor. I'd recommend reading the first two books and if you must know how it all ends, pick this one up when you're through. I'm giving it a 3.5 but will round up to a 4 because I'm such a sweet person ;)

    I was very indifferent about

    – I didn’t hate it and I didn’t love it. But I am happy to say that with this third book in the series my original enthusiasm has returned. (Is it a trilogy? The door is left open just a crack at the end and I have to say that now I’m hoping for more!)

    Everything that bothered me about

    seems to be explained and/or remedied in this book. Cassel’s constant fretting over his Wallingford Academy performance, which I originally suffered through just waiting to get to the good stuff (ie, cons, crimes, and double-crosses), now seems to make a lot more sense. This book delves more into Cassel’s guilt and his struggle to make the “right” choices. Now his desire to maintain good grades and adhere to Wallingford’s policies seems like a simple extension of his desire to be “good” and “normal,”which I must say I didn’t fully comprehend before.

    I also felt that Cassel was a lot clueless in

    , ignoring obvious hints and making foolish decisions. But, I couldn’t be happier to report that he seems craftier than ever in this volume. The Cassel that I glimpsed at the end of

    – one step ahead of everyone – is back for the entire book. And he’s

    . I don’t remember laughing so much in either one of the other books.

    I was also really impressed by the depth given in this book to the curse-worker plight – something that was touched on in the previous books but not fully explored. Here we get to see the full extent of this world and all the dangers it holds for new curse-workers. The parallels to real-world bigotry, hate crimes, and human trafficking are evident and make that aspect of the book even more heartbreaking.

    The romance stays safely away from dramatic angst territory and is very nicely done; although I must say that I didn’t feel

    invested in it. It’s light and enjoyable and I did feel some small emotion for them, but I never felt gripped by it.

    But in the end, that’s just not what this book is. It's not a dark, serious read. It’s a funny, twisty adventure with a great male lead and little hints of darkness. The ending of this book is absolutely perfect; it’s everything that I wished for. So if you love this series, rest assured that it ends on a high note. If you’re new to this series – it’s good all the way through. Time to get started!

    The Dears –

    This is definitely one of my favorites from this album, about exclusion and unjust treatment. But the ending seems to be defiant and hopeful:
