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.

Why I’m waiting:
Well that’s obvious isn’t it? Holly Black and Cassandra Clare? Magic school? Of course I want!

  1. Is it bad for me to admit that I’m sort of put off by this one just because it’s Middle Grade? I know, that’s so stupid. I mean, I wouldn’t want people to not read a story since it’s Young Adult, so why would I say that for MG? I think maybe I’ll wait to see what everyone else says about it first, and then think about it. Surely there will be 8 million reviews when it’s published, right 😉

  2. I’m really intrigued by this one too Bee! 😀 I’ll admit I’m not the biggest fan of Cassie Clare’s work, and I’ve never read anything by Holly Black, but the concept still sounds intriguing enough to capture my interest and make me want to at least give it a try. Thanks for sharing, and happy reading! <3
