From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic.

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.

    Yes, I’m talking to you, multiple reviewers who thought it was like a sad version of Harry Potter (so untrue)! Although I must admit it has many similar general aspects, there are many unique twists and turns with the overarching plot between all the books. The characters aren’t as relatable mostly because the authors wanted to move away from the classic fairytale black and white hero and villain stereotypes. The authors were bold and creative in the whole series with a strange and unique look on living up to expectations, vs seeking what you want to do and finding your identity. Being big fans of Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, I loved the much more kid friendly series. Now why are you still here! Go read it!

    I bought the book after seeing the AMAZING cover and enjoyed it very much. The plot is wonderful, in my opinion. I absolutely ADORE the characters and their individual stories. One of the best books I've read. I'm very into the magic thing. QUEEN SLAY! I would recommend this book to many people. I even did my Summer Reading project on it. So excited for the rest of the series. (Oh, and I've bought The Copper Gauntlet too!)
  • 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.

  • Copy of Harry Potter

    Don't bother reading this book. It is such a copy of Harry Potter. Call has a leg injury like Harry's scar, the villain especially wants to kill the main character, and the whole two boys one girl thing? I find it hard to believe that it ever got published. Listen to me and don't waste your time.
