Sword Catcher by Cassandra Clare digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Two outcasts find themselves caught in a web of dangerous magic and dark secrets that could change the world forever in the start of a riveting epic fantasy series from the author of The Shadowhunter Chronicles.

“Everything I look for in fantasy.”—George R. R. Martin

A POPSUGAR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR


In the vibrant city-state of Castellane, the richest of nobles and the most debauched of criminals have one thing in common: the constant search for wealth, power, and the next hedonistic thrill.

Kel is an orphan, stolen from the life he knew to become the Sword Catcher—the body double of a royal heir, Prince Conor Aurelian. He and Conor are as close as brothers, but his destiny is to die for Conor. No other future is possible.

Lin Caster is a physician from a small community whose members still possess magical abilities. But despite her skills, she cannot heal her best friend without access to forbidden knowledge.

After a failed assassination attempt brings Lin and Kel together, they are drawn into the web of the mysterious Ragpicker King, the ruler of Castellane’s criminal underworld. But as long-kept secrets begin to unravel and forbidden attractions arise, they must ask themselves: Is knowledge worth the price of betrayal? And will their discoveries plunge their nation into war—and the world into chaos?

Thinking Face“I am a huge fan of Cassie's writing. Though I was cautious stepping outside of the Shadowhunters world, I didn't doubt I'd come to like this world too. There is a loooot of world building going on and deep political drama that kind of made my eyeballs spiral, but I wasn't as lost as I thought I'd be. This is definitely a build up for the next books in the series, more than completing a story on it's own. I found myself thinking of Kel and Lin throughout my day, but the book didn't rip my heart like the others. Solid four stars. I suspect I will look back on this fondly as the "happy days" as we continue.”
