Read The 1st Chapter of The Copper Gauntlet By Holly Black & Cassandra Clare

Who's anxious to get their hands on Book #2 in the Magisterium Series by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare? We are too! While The Copper Gauntlet by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare won't be out until September 1st, 2016, fans get read the 1st chapter now! Scholastic Press has treated fans of the series to a sneak peak! Right now fans of the middle grade series can read the entire 1st chapter! Head over to here to read it. 


Callum Hunt’s summer break isn’t like other kids’. His closest companion is a Chaos-ridden wolf, Havoc. His father suspects him of being secretly evil. And, of course, most kids aren’t heading back to the magical world of the Magisterium in the fall.

It’s not easy for Call . . . and it gets even harder after he checks out his basement and discovers that his dad might be trying to destroy both him and Havoc.

Call escapes to the Magisterium -- but things only intensify there. The Alkahest -- a copper gauntlet capable of separating certain magicians from their magic -- has been stolen. And in their search to discover the culprit, Call and his friends Aaron and Tamara awaken the attention of some very dangerous foes -- and get closer to an even more dangerous truth.

As the mysteries of the Magisterium deepen and widen, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take readers on an extraordinary journey through one boy’s conflict -- and a whole world’s fate.

  1. I had somehow missed this, but I put it right on my Baker and Taylor order. Will have to fight with students to get a chance to read it. Thanks for reminding me!

    1. You're welcome! Love that your students enjoy it as well!


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.
