In case you wanted more books from Cassandra Clare (of course you do) mark your calendars in 2014 for Magisterium.
Magisterium, a five-book middle-grade series with “one book for each year of Call’s life between twelve and seventeen,” is co-written by Clare and Holly Black. The Iron Trial, the first installment, will be published by Scholastic Books in 2014.
New teaser art for the Magisterium series can be found on Clare’s website.
Here is the synopsis for The Iron Trial:
Twelve-year-old Callum Hunt has grown up knowing three rules by heart. Never trust a magician. Never pass a test a magician gives you. And never let a magician take you to the Magisterium.
Call is about to break all the rules. And when he does, his life will change in ways he can’t possibly imagine.
The film rights for The Iron Trial were immediately snatched up by Constantin Film, the studio that owns the film rights to The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. Clare and Black will pen the screenplay and serve as executive producers.
The year 2014 is shaping up to be quite a busy one for Clare fans. Apart from The Iron Trial’s release, City of Heavenly Fire, the final installment of the international bestselling The Mortal Instruments, is set to be released in March-April.
