THE BRONZE KEY by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare is a
little bit of a
different read for me because it's a Young Adult novel.
I've read books by
both authors before so I'm quite familiar with their
writing style. The Magisterium series,
however, isn't targeted to teens but to middle graders so
the language is
slightly different than I'm used to. Nevertheless, I really
enjoyed this book.
Sweet and exciting, these characters are just bursting with
adventures that they get themselves into are really quite
goes to show that with fiction, anything can happen.
There's a great fantasy
element to this series that I think will appeal to a lot of
readers, both young
and old alike. I would suggest reading The Magisterium series in order
to get the
fullest, richest experience out of the books.
THE BRONZE KEY is a little bit on the shorter side but it
still offers a full-bodied story. I
love that these two authors have come together to
collaborate on The Magisterium series
because I imagine it's something different for them as
well. Co-authoring a
series must have its difficulties, but the end result is
fantastic. I look forward
to reading what else these two authors write together!
Students at the Magisterium are supposed to be safe. Under
the watchful eyes of the mages, they are taught to use magic
to bring order to a chaotic world.
But now the chaos is fighting back.
Call, Tamara, and Aaron should be worrying about things like
pop quizzes and magic contests. Instead, after the shocking
death of one of their classmates, they must track down a
sinister killer . . . and risk their own lives in the process.
As Call, Tamara, and Aaron discover, magic can only be as
good as the person who wields it. In evil hands, it has the
capacity to do immeasurable harm — unless it is stopped in time.
In this striking third book of Magisterium, bestselling
authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare present us with a
school where anything — good or evil — can happen, and the
only way to unlock the truth is to risk everything to find it.
