It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time to focus on an upcoming new release that I’m excited for in the weekly Waiting on Wednesday.
While scouring the interwebs for upcoming titles, I was surprised to come across The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare! It seems that the two awesome authors are combining their powers to create a new middle grades series!
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.
I just recently finished reading Doll Bones by Holly Black, which made me a fan and I already loved Clare’s books, so I’m pretty interested to see this project! The Iron Trial, first in the Magisterium series, is scheduled for release in early September of this year.
