Two of Cassandra Clare’s book series are coming to an end this year: The Dark Artifices and Magisterium, which Cassie co-wrote with author and friend Holly Black. Fans of The Dark Artifices were already treated to a chapter from Queen of Air and Darkness and now it is time for Magisterium fans to rejoice – and maybe start rereading the other four books – because Scholastic has released the first chapter of The Golden Tower!
FOR THE FIRST time in Call’s life, the house he had grown up in looked small.Alastair brought the car to a stop and they piled out alongwith Havoc, who ran along the edge of the grass, barking. Alastair glanced at Call once before locking the car — there was no suitcase to carry out, no duffel bags or luggage to worry about. Call had come home from Master Joseph’s with nothing.
I cannot wait to find out what Call’s final year at school is going to bring for him, Tamara and their friends! 😀
And in case you need a reminder about the book’s synopsis:
The final, thrilling installment in this extraordinary series from bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare.
A generation ago, powerful mage Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn’t succeed . . . but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt.
Facing up to what he is, Callum has battled chaos and evil across four years of magical training at the Magisterium, eventually defeating the armies of chaos in an epic battle.
It came at a cost.
Now, triumphant and heartbroken, Callum Hunt has just about had enough, and is ready to complete his training. But the evil Callum faced has not given up just yet…
The Golden Tower is published on September 11 and there is going to be a launch event with Cassie, Holly, David Levithan and Scott Westerfeld at Odyssey Books in South Hadley, MA at 7pm. You can RSVP here.
