Cover Reveal: The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

One of the biggest series that I've been keeping my eye out for this year is Holly Black, co-author of The Spiderwick Chronicles, and Cassandra Clare's, author of The Mortal Instruments trilogy, co-written middle grade series, Magisterium. It seems like everything the two of these authors touch turns immediately to gold. Here's a little bit about book one, The Iron Trial.
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.

And finally after months of waiting, there is finally a cover for book one.




Thanks to USA Today for the reveal!
The five-book series, aimed at readers 8-12, features students at the Magisterium, an 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."

Although it doesn't come out until September 9th from Scholastic, you can head over to USA Today to read an exclusive excerpt The Iron Trial: Book One of the Magisterium.

What are your thoughts on the cover? I love it!
