I really enjoyed this book because it has a lot of humour. this is probably one of my books because it has a bully like Malfoy in Harry Potter. it also kind of teaches you how friends usually stick together.

In my opinion it's one of the best series I ever read. A lot similar to Harry Potter (which I also read) this book I found fascinating. If you're a Harry Potter fan, then I very sure that you will enjoy this book. Cal, Aaron, and Tamara makes a great group that always keeps the story interesting and makes me want to keep reading. When I finished the last book, (The Golden Tower) I was sure there had to be more books about Magisterium, but It was the last book, and no more series. If you're reading this, highly recommend you this book.

This is probably in my top five favorite series, along with the Inheritance Cycle, The Keeper of the Lost Cities, The Last Dragon Series, and the Trials of Apollo. It's not my favorite, but it's up there. Call is as hilarious as Holly and Cassandra's trouble with finding a good cover artist.

Seriously, though, you'd think that there would be someone out there who could do some decent cover art for this series, the best cover art is on the fifth book, and Call's face is messed up in that one! I think the best face for Call is on the third book's cover, the Bronze Key.

In The Iron Trial, Callum Hunt heads to the Magisterium, a school of witchcraft and wizardry. But his father tells Callum to try his best to FLUNK out of the school. Cal is confused at this request but his father convinces him to do so. But unfortunately, Cal fails at his attempts and is accepted to the Magisterium as an Apprentice to Master Rufus. But there is an even deeper reason why his father wanted to make him flunk other than how bad magic is. An even deeper reason that will question the reliability of his own soul.

Two of my favorite authors, Holly Black and Cassandra Clare, have teamed up to write one of my favorite Juvenile Fiction series. This is such a fun series, I highly recommend it.

Iron Trial is a book that is full of 2 amazing authors and they really brought all the things that I want in a book and make it into a pressured juicy book of adventures and magic. Thanks to them I have a book to read whenever I am bored to death.

"They all yelled in excitement. Tamara yelled because she was happy. Aaron yelled because he liked it when other people were happy, and Call yelled because he was sure they were going to die".

In this book Call was always told to avoid magic and to fail the test when it was time to see if he could join the Magisterium. And when he tries to fail, he fails at failing.
He goes through many adventures at the Magesterium, and, according to him,makes the first friends in his life. In the ned there is a special twist. I recommend this to anyone and everyone.
