While you’re waiting for Eclipse: White Cat by Holly Black

For the entire month of June, we’re counting down to the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse with 30 Days of Eclipse. But we’re getting in on the countdown at our sister site, Novel Novice, with a look at some books that you can sink your teeth into while waiting for the release of Eclipse — and even beyond, as you look forward to Breaking Dawn.

Oh, and we’re not just telling you about some cool books … we’re giving you the chance to win them! That’s right. The fine folks at Simon & Schuster have given us a great collection of books to share with you all month-long.

We begin today with White Cat by Holly Black and we’re giving away 3 copies of the book over at Novel Novice. Just click HERE to enter the contest. Meanwhile, here’s more about White Cat:

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 mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn’t got the magic touch, 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.

Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts 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, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.

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.

We loved White Cat, and you can check out our extensive review of the book here, plus watch this awesome book trailer:
