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.

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.

Awesome book!!!

You might wonder from the title why I gave this 4/5. The only reason why is because in my opinion the story moved a little slow at the beginning/middle. The ending was great! Looking forward to #2

It's the next best thing since Harry Potter. Just when you think you have it figured out, they surprise you. Definitely worth reading.

Nice book

I really liked this book. Although a lot of people say that it is a copy of Harry Potter it isn't. Although it does have the whole two boys and one girl thing and the main bad guy would like nothing more than to kill the main character. Every one is using this as an excuse to hate on the book. In my opinion the book is different in its own way and it has its own storyline that is so much more different than most of the other magic books out there.
