Publisher's Summary

Think you know magic? Think again. The Magisterium awaits ... Most people would do anything to get into the Magisterium and pass the Iron Trial. Not Callum Hunt.

Call has been told his whole life that he should never trust a magician. And so he tries his best to do his worst – but fails at failing. Now he must enter the Magisterium. It's a place that's both sensational and sinister. And Call realises it has dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future. The Iron Trial is just the beginning. Call's biggest test is still to come ...

What the Critics Say

"The Iron Trial is merely a setup and introduction, and promises to take subsequent instalments of the Magisterium series in a more complex and philosophical direction." (Starburst)

"A thrilling coming-of-age story that embraces fantasy tropes while keeping readers guessing." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Kind of a rip off but still not to bad"

    The story is very similar to Harry Potter but I still enjoyed it none the less. Ms Clare and Ms Black do not reach the heights of Ms Rowling but I doubt that no many writers could. I hope the antagonist become a little more fleshed out and fearsome in the coming books because at the moment I do not have any fear of The Enemy of Death the way it was with He Who Must Not Be Named.

    "Good"

    Good but definitely a 'young adult' style of story & lacking in sophistication one would expect as an adult but I enjoyed it non the less
