Waiting on Wednesday...Black Heart by Holly Black

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is Black Heart by Holly Black

Here is the Goodreads synopsis

Cassel Sharpe knows he’s been used as an assassin, but he’s trying to put all that behind him. He’s trying to be good, even though he grew up in a family of con artists and cheating comes as easily as breathing to him. He’s trying to do the right thing, even though the girl he loves is inextricably connected with crime. And he’s trying to convince himself that working for the Feds is smart, even though he’s been raised to believe the government is the enemy.

But with a mother on the lam, the girl he loves about to take her place in the Mob, and new secrets coming to light, the line between what’s right and what’s wrong becomes increasingly blurred. When the Feds ask Cassel to do the one thing he said he would never do again, he needs to sort out what’s a con and what’s truth. In a dangerous game and with his life on the line, Cassel may have to make his biggest gamble yet—this time on love.

I love this series, and am really looking forward to this one. I hope Cassel gets his version of "happily ever after" when the series ends.

Expected release date - April 3, 2012 (my birthday!)


  1. I don't know if it's just my browser or not, but the cover art shows up as just a black box with an exclamation mark in it. Thought you might want to know!

    Ahh I really need to get on this series! I've been meaning to start White Cat for ages because there are so many fans of this series already. And what can I say, I love the idea of a con artist family. Ooh and what an awesome birthday present! :)

  2. Brodie - haha, it is an awesome birthday gift. Immortal City (another book I am excited about) also comes out that day! Thanks for letting me know about the picture. It shows up on my computer. I will have my friend look too. Anyone else see the cover?

  3. Kathy, I can see the cover. This series is one of the most original I have ever read and I love it. Can't wait for this one either, great pick!
