The Dark City #1 (Relic Master) - Catherine Fisher This review was completed by Amanda Harbin, staff reviewer with the YA Fantasy Guide.Relic Master is a fun and easy to read adventure story. The main characters are reminiscent of the Harry Potter series in the sense that the story follows a boy and his older mentor. Like the Harry Potter series this book is accessible to both boys and girls! Don’t be misled the similarities to the Harry Potter series do not go much further. The story is simple and easy to follow, but also very engaging. The characters are likeable, fun and understandable. I enjoyed this book very much. The author created a beautiful but dangerous world in which many different species interact with the world and with each other in a way that creates and propels the reader through their exciting adventure. Relic Master is one of the most unique fantasy/steampunk stories I have read in quite sometime. I not only enjoyed the adventure and pace of the story I also enjoyed the moral of the story. The author did an excellent job of moralizing the story without shoving her beliefs down the readers throat. The ideas within the story are well executed within the structure of the storyline so that the reader learns something, and has a good time as well. I have already picked up the second book in the series from the library as well as another book by this author. I highly recommend picking this book up for a surprising and fun adventure!
