The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Magisterium Book 1
Publication Date: September 9, 2014
Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial.
Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail.
All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him.
So he tries his best to do his worst – and fails at failing.
Now the Magisterium awaits him. It’s a place that’s both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future.
The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come . . .
From the remarkable imaginations of bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a heart-stopping, mind-blowing, pulse-pounding plunge into the magical unknown.
So…do I really need to explain why I want to read this book?
1) It is written by not 1 but 2 of the most talented writers on the planet. (Yeah, I said planet. Deal.) Holly Black and Cassie Clare. (Kinda makes it a no brainer.)
2) The main character of the book wants to FAIL! Who the hell ever wants to fail? I must know where this Callum’s marbles have gone and what he can do to retrieve them.
3) The synopsis says “twisty path to his future.” TWISTY PATH PEOPLE!! That’s Black and Clare code for shit is going to go down! And it will be EPIC. And you will never EVER forget it! And you will run out and tell all of your biblio-obsessed friends about it!
To sum it up. This book sounds awesome. Simple as that. 1, 2, minor freak-out 3.
Anywho, THIS is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
