From the imaginations of bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a heart-stopping plunge into the magical unknown.
Think you know magic?
The Magisterium awaits . . .
Most people would do anything to get into the Magisterium and pass the Iron Trial.
Not Callum Hunt.
Call has been told his whole life that he should never trust a magician. And so he tries his best to do his worst – but fails at failing.
Now he must enter the Magisterium.
It's a place that's both sensational and sinister. And Call realizes it has dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future.
The Iron Trial is just the beginning. Call’s biggest test is still to come . . .
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Two bestselling authors (and longtime friends) come together to launch a new teen fantasy series that echoes Harry Potter but still feels fresh. Twelve-year-old Callum Hunt is a well-known troublemaker in the leafy Southern U.S. town of Asheville. Call’s widower father—an eccentric antique store owner—has revealed almost nothing about the family’s tragic past. However, he’s taught his only son to fear magic and, above all, the Magisterium: the underground school where young magicians are sent to apprentice with master mages. Authors Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments) and Holly Black (Doll Bones) create a vivid, mysterious world for their charming and relatable characters. If The Iron Trial is indicative of the rest of the Magisterium series, we’re in for a wonderfully entertaining ride.

Loved it but I am very upset that the next book comes out in September! I need more!
It was alright but I thought it could have been way better and I don’t really like the surprise twist
Honestly, it took me awhile to get into this book as the main character isn't what I normally perceive as 'likeable' but I am definitely hooked now! Love it ☺️
