Check Out The Cover & Excerpt Of The Iron Trial By Authors Cassandra Clare And Holly Black

The most unlikely pairing of authors Cassandra Clare and Holly Black has lead to the creation of the projected five-book series called Magisterium. The first book in the series called The Iron Trial is almost up fro grabs. And thanks to USA Today we have got the first glimpse of its official cover, topped with an exciting read of an excerpt.

Magisterium is so named after the "academy for those with a propensity toward magic." Clare says she had "a certain trepidation that I wouldn't be able to capture a middle-grade voice, since I've only written for older teens. Working with Holly helped iron that out because she's a middle-grade expert."

From New York Times bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic.

From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will -- is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It's a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.

The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black will be released on September 9, 2014.
