The Mission

Galen, a keeper, and his pupil Raffi live in the fantastical world of Anara which boasts seven moons and a vast city now plunged in eternal darkness. After being discovered by a horseman, Galen and Raffi are delivered to a band of thieves. The head thief, Alberic, steals their only relic—a blue crystal box that Raffi holds dear. He promises to return the relic if they complete a mission for him. They must find a certain Sekoi—a fur-covered creature—who stole their gold, and bring him back to them.

The Crow

As Galen and Raffi travel to the dark city of Tasceron, they find a note which suggests that the Crow is still alive. The Crow is an ancient messenger who flew between the Makers and the Gods. If it is still alive, then Galen and Raffi could restore the Order and save their crumbling world.

The Spy

Meanwhile, a young member of the Watch named Carys is on their trail. Galen is wanted by the Watch and instead of capturing him and the boy, she befriends them, planning to betray them when the time is right. But as they travel to Tasceron, she lets her guard down and realizes that maybe the Watch aren’t the good guys after all.

The Bottom Line

The Dark City is the first of four books in Catherine Fisher’s Relic Master series. Each of the books will be released one month apart, beginning with The Dark City in May. This novel is great for those who like a mix of fantasy and sci-fi, and adventures set in different worlds.

*smiles really big and claps* Yaaaaaaay! I can't believe it! I'm 14 years old now! Also, I watched Yu-gi-oh Dark Side of Dimensions last night and I must say, IT WAS AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER!! Near the end, I had tears going down my face. But I also got combat boots, a phone case, RPG Maker Fes, and a paper saying that I'm going to get some YU-GI-OH PILLOW CASES!!
