Title: The Iron Trial

Authors:  Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

Publication Date: September 9th 2014

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.

These are two of my favorite authors! Words cannot explain how excited I am for this book! So many people have compared it to Harry Potter, but some think that's bad. Not me! Maybe it will fill the hole that the seventh book left! So excited! Can't wait!

And lets all take a moment to appreciate this cover! It is gorgeous! So EXCITED!

  6. I'm looking forward to this one too and I did actually get an earc from netgalley but I just haven't gotten around to starting it yet. Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog :)

  7. I absolutely love Holly Black but I'm not that impressed by Cassandra Clare, anyways I'm glad she's writing something other than her shadowhunter books. I guess I'll just read some reviews and then decide if I'm interested or not. Hope you'll enjoy it though.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  8. I really enjoyed this book. I got an ARC at BEA. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance.

  10. This book seems really good! I'm definitely putting it on my tbr. I'm not the biggest fan of Cassandra Clare, but I haven't read anything by Holly Black…so hopefully it will be good! I'll be watching for your review. Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet:)

    Happy Reading

  11. I enjoy Holly Black, but I haven't read anything by Cassandra Clare yet. I hope you enjoy reading this series. Thanks for stopping by My WoW.

    BTW - I can barely read the comments.... maybe it's just me and my old eyes, but it's nearly impossible to see the words.

  12. I have seen this one around. I am not into MG much but I'd probably recommend this to my younger cousins.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  13. CUTE BLOG! And YES to this book! I love Holly Black. :)
