The Iron Trial
Book #30 Read in 2016
The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Two of the hottest paranormal authors in the YA realm team up to write this series, which is scheduled to consist of five books; this is the first one. Call is selected to try out for a magic school which his father definitely does not want him to attend. Call struggles to find out what his magic is and what secrets his father has hidden from him all of these year. This reminds me a bit of Harry Potter though not as well-developed as that series. That being said, it was a good, quick read--perfect for middle schoolers or high schoolers. I will continue this series; #2 is in my TBR pile and #3 comes out in September.
