Magisterium: The Iron Trial
First of the new Magisterium series, The Iron Trial is the latest in the long line of attempts by authors to depict young wizardry, yet takes a refreshingly interesting angle with its subject matter.
Many among the latest generation of children dream of possessing the natural affinity for sorcery which will get them selected during the Iron Trial, but not Callum Hunt. With his family shattered by the effects of a magical conflict, Callum has been taught since birth to never tap into his potential. However, when he is selected, despite failing every test, he must now seek to survive within the Magisterium.
