Brilliant, has a few hiccups, but overall new storyline ( )
  ChrisGreenDog | Feb 11, 2024 |
Kel is a 10 year old boy living in an orphanage in the city-state of Castellane when he is plucked out to be the Sword Catcher, the body double of the royal heir, due to his resemblance to the young Prince Conor Aurelian. He and the prince become friends and inseparable. As the prince becomes a young man, he gets into some trouble which Kel must clean up. The twelve families who own the 12 charters for silk, dyes, etc. are very political and ruthless.
Lin Caster is a member of the Ashkar, a community shunned due to their use of magic. She is a healer although cannot access some of the books used by the non-Askar medical community. She desperately wants access in order to try to heal her best friend, Mariam. Then there is the Rag Picker King, head of the criminal element in Castellane. Both end up going to him for help. Prosper Beck, a criminal who controls the MAZE, is another character. The book ends in two cliff-hangers setting up the next volume in this series. There is way too much description in this book. ( )

This book is the first in an epic fantasy series described as two outcasts (Kel and Lin) who find themselves "caught in a web of forbidden love, dangerous magic and dark secrets". The world-building and political system is fantastic (it takes a while to get the myriad of kingdoms and nobles and whatnot straight in your head) and the cast of characters is interesting. I’m particularly intrigued by the Ragpicker King. This was my first Cassandra Clare read - and I will definitely be picking up the next book in this series to see what happens next ( )
