Magisterium: The Iron Trial - Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

Tags: book
  This Book is the first in a new series and it is a really good introduction to what could become a truly great series of books. I enjoyed Holly Black's Spiderwick Chronicles and also Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angels trilogy so it was also going to be pretty likely that I liked this novel. To be completely honest the book isn't a whole lot like either of those books, it is probably more like The Clockwork Trilogy but that may just be to do with the style of writing and the books setting, obviously influenced heavily by Clare.

  The book is quite typical of a lot of new modern stories with magic, it's about an ordinary boy who one day discovers that he has powers- you get the picture. The book does bring some new things in though, admittedly later on in the novel but it is quite original. After all we have two good authors who have wrote about magic before working together. 

10 / 10 A fresh, new take on magic that I thoroughly enjoyed. Comment your opinions or email them to me at: [email protected]
