Magisterium: The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare & Holly Black; Meet Call & Havoc

Happy Marvelous Middle Grade Monday!
 Check out the cuteness of Call, whom is the main character in Magisterium: The Iron Trial, book 1 from a brand new middle grade series that Holly Black & Cassandra Clare have co-written together.  

Magisterium: The Iron Trial will be hitting stores this September, and I'll be featuring it here on the blog in the coming weeks. 
This weekend Cassie posted this adorable fan art of Call and the wolf pup, Havoc. 

Here's what Cassie said: 
I just finished reading the ARC of your newest series with Holly Black. I gotta say I’m sooooo excited for more! Loved it!! — v-e-r-t-e-b-r-a-t-e
Thanks! I put this up here for Holly to read it. Also I thought I’d start intro-ing some of the character designs that Cassandra Jean did. Meet Call, our grumpy protagonist, and his pet, Havoc, a wolf with a secret.

Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial. Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail. All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. So he tries his best to do his worst – and fails at failing. Now the Magisterium awaits him — a place that’s both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future. The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come… (per Cassie's site)

You can find out more about the series via Cassandra Clare's site and Scholastic.
Be sure to visit Mundie Kids later on in the week, as I'll be hosting a giveaway for The Iron Trial!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
