NYT Bestselling author Cassandra Clare is releasing a brand new novel later this year. Wooooooot! Titled Sword Catcher, it’s the first in a brand new fantasy series from the mind that brought us The Shadowhunter Chronicles. In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a snippet from the blurb:
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 has been raised alongside the prince, trained in every aspect of combat and statecraft. He and Conor are close as brothers, but Kel knows he has one destiny: to die for Conor. No other future is possible.
There have been some incredible announcements this week both about the book itself and some launch events. Here’s the latest wrap.
