New Book Showcase
 Sword Catcher
 by Cassandra Clare

 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. Lin Caster is one of the Ashkar, a small community who possess magical abilities. After a failed assassination attempt brings Lin and Kel together, they are drawn into the web of the mysterious Ragpicker King, the criminal ruler of Castellane’s underworld. He offers them each what they want most; but as they descend into his world, they discover a conspiracy of corruption that reaches from the darkest gutters of Castellane to the highest tower of its palaces.
