From Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes the second installment in the New York Times bestselling series that defies what you think you know about the worlds of good and evil. Callum Hunt’s summer break isn’t like other kids’. His closest companion is a Chaos-ridden wolf, Havoc. His father suspects him of being secretly evil. And, of course, most kids aren’t heading back to the magical world of the Magisterium in the fall. It’s not easy for Call . . . and it gets even harder after he checks out his basement and discovers that his dad might be trying to destroy both him and Havoc. Call escapes to the Magisterium -- but things only intensify there. The Alkahest -- a copper gauntlet capable of separating certain magicians from their magic -- has been stolen. And in their search to discover the culprit, Call and his friends Aaron and Tamara awaken the attention of some very dangerous foes -- and get closer to an even more dangerous truth. As the mysteries of the Magisterium deepen and widen, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take readers on an extraordinary journey through one boy’s conflict -- and a whole world’s fate. Praise for Magisterium Book One: The Iron Trial: * “A thrilling coming-of-age story that embraces fantasy tropes while keeping readers guessing.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review “A promising beginning to a complex exploration of good and evil, as well as friendship’s loyalty.” — Kirkus Reviews “The Iron Trial is a fun, heroic narrative. . . . A delicious must-read.” — The Globe & Mail “This is an incredible book. . . . Once you’ve started reading, it’s hard to put the book down.” — The Guardian
