The Iron Trial By: Holly Black & Cassandra Clare
Are you looking for a magical book with a twist ending you won't expect? Well look no further!
This is The Iron Trial by: Holly Black and Cassandra Clare!
Callum Hunt is a 12 year old boy with a lame leg. All his life his father has told him that magic is pure evil, since it killed his mother in a war. When Callum tries to fail at a test to get into Magisterium, an underground magic school, he does the opposite and now is forced to attend this "evil school". During the year, he makes new friends and a new foe. Call starts to love the school, even though his father thinks differently and wants to bind his magic. When 2 students go missing, Call and someone will have to find them. It will reveal something from Call's past that will change Call's life for the worse. See, I told you there was a plot twist!
What I liked about the book was Call's friends. They are super supportive and would do anything for him, even the crazy stuff!
What I don't like about the book is Call's lame leg. Near the end of the book, the leg made him risk his life twice! If only he didn't have a lame leg, he would be unstoppable.
This book fits in the Fantasy genre and is recommended if you have read Harry Potter. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
