Are you ready to see the cover of The Iron Trial from Cassandra Clare and Holly Black’s new middle grade series Magisterium?
USA Today hasn’t only shared the cover but there’s also an exclusive excerpt.
The five-book series, aimed at readers 8-12, features students at the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. Clare says she had “a certain trepidation that I wouldn’t be able to capture a middle-grade voice, since I’ve only written for older teens. Working with Holly helped iron that out because she’s a middle-grade expert.”
Cassie added on her tumblr:
Aaron is in the center. Callum is on his left, and Tamara on his right.
The Iron Trial will be released September 9.
How cool is the cover/the excerpt and did you notice the sweet dedication to Holly Black’s son Sebastian?
