PREMIERE EVENT: Cassandra Clare and Holly Black
Friday, September 18, 7:00 p.m.
Come and meet Cassandra Clare, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series and Holly Black, the award-winning #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles (with Tony DiTerlizzi), Doll Bones, The Darkest Part of the Forest, The Curse Workers series, and the Modern Faerie Tale series. They will be discussing the second book in the wonderful Magisterium series that Publishers Weekly in a starred review calls, “A thrilling coming-of-age story that embraces fantasy tropes while keeping readers guessing.” We couldn’t be more excited!
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. He 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.
