Cassandra Clare's New Fantasy Series!

 December’s Top Book Pick!


New York Times Best-selling Author Cassandra Clare launches a new epic fantasy series with Sword Catcher, Book One, The Chronicles of Castellane.


“It began with a crime. The theft of a boy.


So begins the tale of Kel, a boy stolen from an orphanage to become the secret Sword Catcher—the body double for the sole royal heir, Prince Conor of Aurelian. All the trappings of royal life, including abundance and hedonistic thrills, and Kel’s growing closeness to Conor, are countered by the weight of living a lie and knowing his destiny is to die for Conor.


 Like Kel, Lin Caster is an outcast. A rare female doctor, Lin is      forced to live behind walls within the city because she is an Ashkar. After the Sundering, only the Ashkar possessed the last vestiges of magic, and all magical creatures disappeared overnight. But neither charmed talismans nor Lin’s extensive medical skill have succeeded in healing her best friend.


 After an assassination attempt, Kel, Conor, and Lin’s lives become entwined in a dangerous web of forbidden love, secrets, conspiracies, and betrayal.


Clare employs enviable writing to breathe life into disparate characters and factions. Her complex world building may send the spatially challenged (like me) puzzling over the included map. But once the pieces come together, readers will find this hefty book difficult to put down and eager for the sequel.

Wishing you all a wondrous holiday season. Be sure to take some time for yourself to snuggle up with a good book!
