Waiting on Wednesday: The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

The Iron Trial (Magisterium, #1)

The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Doubleday
Publication Date:  September 9, 2014


Goodreads Synopsis: 
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.

From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will -- is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It's a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.

This book has been on my Goodreads To Read list since FOREVER (really 2012...but still!) I want it SO bad! Middle grade, Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, magic, good versus evil ...ahhhh WANT! [end crazy ... sorry about that...] and I am super jealous of everyone that grabbed it at BEA this year!

What are you waiting for?


  1. I love Holly Black's original writing style and even though this is a middle grade, I might consider it because of her. Great choice, Steph! :)

  2. I KNOW! I have been waiting forever CANNOT wait to read it :)
