Wednesday on Wednesday: The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:

The Iron Trial (Magisterium, #1)
The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Expected release date: September 9th, 2014
from Doubleday Children's Books

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.

While I've heard amazing things about Holly Black, I've never actually read one of her books-I'm reading White Cat next, leave me alone-so really I was only interested in this once Cassandra Clare started talking about it. Not only will I read anything Cassie puts her name on, I'm also excited to see how these two author besties writing styles come together. Oh, and the plot sounds pretty cool, too.

That's what I'm waiting on this week, what about you? We can wait together :)
