Genre: Young Adult- Paranormal/Fantasy

"After rescuing his brothers from Zacharov's retribution and finding out that Lila, the girl he has loved his whole life, will never, ever be his now that his mother has worked her, Cassel is trying to reestablish some kind of normalcy in his life. That was never going to be easy for someone from a worker family tied to one of the big crime families and a mother whose cons get more reckless by the day. But Cassel is also coming to terms with what it means to be a transformation worker and figuring out how to have friends.

But normal doesn't last very long--soon Cassel is being courted by both sides of the law and is forced to confront his past. A past he remembers only in scattered fragments and one that could destroy his family and his future. Cassel will have to decide whose side he wants to be on because neutrality is not an option. And then he will have to pull off his biggest con ever to survive."

Seriously, Ms. Black I love your writing! Red Glove is a great sequel I really enjoyed. I found myself at the edge of my seat bouncing with joy as I read this book. So many betrayals, secrets, murders that has left me with practically no finger nails!

So this book picked right where it has left off with Cassel trying to fix things from the first book. Now I won't tell what it is, in case you have not read it, but he deals with a lot. Cassel's character has grown up from the first book. Where as he was ignorant, now he knows better and is smarter. Cassel has now become the guy you don't want to mess with. This time Cassel thinks about everything not because he wants to but he has to. He is put into a very hard place and needs to find a way out. 

The plot twists were amazing! As I was reading this book, I kept wondering how Ms. Black would pull it off for Cassel. When I finally got to the end and saw how it fit together, genius.  That's all I thought. The plot came off beautifully. 

I like how well Ms. Black leaves her endings. There not cliff hangers, but not finished as well. They leave you with just enough to know that there is more. The ending definitely left an open door to know that there is going to be much more!

Red Glove is a fantastic sequel that I could not get enough of. Written beautifully, Red Glove takes you on a ride that you won't forget!

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I just bought White Cat and can't wait to read it! I'm so glad this second book seems to live up to the fabulousness that is the first, and that Cassel definitely grows and becomes a force to be reckoned with. And I love plot twists - so excited to find out what they are!

  2. I agree with Jenny. I'm glad Red Glove lives up to White Cat. I thought the plot and twists in the first one were amazing. I cannot wait to read Red Glove.

  3. I liked this one better than the first and the open ending didn't bother me on this one. Great review!

  4. It took me a little while to get into White Cat, but I loved it at the end. I'm excited to read Red Glove! Great review!
