Staff Pick: The Iron Trial

Staff Pick: The Iron Trial

Magisterium The Iron Trial

Warned away from magic all of his life, Callum endeavors to fail the trials that would admit him to the Magisterium only to be drawn into its ranks against his will and forced to confront dark elements from his past.

Mocked and bullied , Callum Hunt reacted to others with sarcasm and a withering scowl turning away even those who tried to be nice to him.  Yet, he  never stopped hoping that he could belong somewhere and have friends.

Lately, excitement is about invitations to take an exam for entrance into the Magisterium, a prestigious school where only the best students are chosen to attend. To his surprise, Call receives an invitation. His dad’s reaction is even more stunning, a warning that he must not go there. The Magisterium is about magic and would put Call in terrible danger and he must fail the exam. Together they practice how Call can bomb the test, but he succeeds..in spite of receiving the worst scores. Call is still chosen and that very day is forcibly torn from his father’s arms to begin classes at the Magisterium.

Surprisingly, Cal finds the Magisterium isn’t as scary as expected and in spite of long and grueling classes, it is sort of fun to learn that he can actually levitate things. Although some classmates are as mean as those at home, he learns to trust a few. 

Then the dangers begin. Students return from outside with terrible injuries and another student runs away and is in grave danger. Cal begins to see that things are not as they seem….  Would he survive the Iron Trials?
