Cassandra Clare is known for her The Shadowhunter Chronicles books and two new books set in her Shadowhunters universe are scheduled to be released this year – Lord of Shadows (May 23) and The Lost Book of the White (written with Wesley Chu, tentative release November) – but one mustn’t forget that she is also writing the Magisterium series with her friend and fellow author Holly Black. There are two books left in the series, which are centered around the young magician Callum Hunt, and the cover for The Silver Mask and a snippet were just shared by Cassie and Holly. Spoiler for The Bronze Key:
The cover of Magisterium 4: The Silver Mask! Call and Tamara looking very grown up, and who are you, mysterious hooded figure? Snippet from Silver Mask: "Master Joseph only laughed, though. “I have a proposal for you, how about that? Callum, once you complete the task I set for you, you can leave the island with your friends if that’s what you still want.” “A task?” Call asked. “Is this some kind of trick thing where I have to tame an impossible elemental or separate dirt from sand on an entire beach?” Master Joseph smiled. “Nothing like that.” He flung open the doors at the far end of the room. After a moment, Call and the others joined him at the entryway. Inside was a large, white-painted room. There was nothing in it but a metal table. On top of the table lay a body that was perfectly preserved, covered to the neck by a thin white sheet. “The task,” he said. “Is to raise Aaron Stewart from the dead.”" THE SILVER MASK #magisterium
What a great cover! 15-year-old Call is really cute, Tamara is badass (what’s new?) and Jasper is rocking that pony t-shirt 🙂
And that snippet, OMG! Why does Master Joseph want to raise Aaron from the dead?
We can’t wait to read The Silver Mask later this year!
