The Iron Trial
Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
“Magic runs in families,” Call’s father said. “Not everyone in a family will necessarily have it, but it looks like you might. Unfortunately. I am so sorry, Call.”
—Alastair Hunt, THE IRON TRIAL
A magic school adventure with masters and apprentices, trials and elementals, chaos-ridden creatures and a war against the dreaded “enemy of death.” The storytelling’s as solid as the walls of the Magesterium, with contemporary quirks and a deep sense of history. I care very much what happens next to Callum and his fellow apprentices. So much so, I bought the books for my home shelf. Exellent.
