Magic can save you. Magic can kill you.
Students at the Magisterium are supposed to be safe. Under the watchful eyes of the mages, they are taught to use magic to bring order to a chaotic world.
But now the chaos is fighting back. Call, Tamara, and Aaron should be worrying about things like pop quizzes and magic contests. Instead, after the shocking death of one of their classmates, they must track down a sinister killer...and risk their own lives in the process.
As Call, Tamara, and Aaron discover, magic can only be as good as the person who wields it. In evil hands it has the capacity to do immeasurable harm - unless it is stopped in time.
In this striking third book of Magisterium, best-selling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare present us with a school where anything - good or evil - can happen, and the only way to unlock the truth is to risk everything to find it.

Book 3 in The Magestirium series, The Bronze Key, holds a lot of surprises. The story is moved forward a great deal. Each novel answers some questions, but brings many questions forward. This one really does that with vigour. I hope the next one comes along sooner than later. If you enjoy fantasy books filled with magic and coming of age with a lot of mystery and intrigue, this series is for you. The first book is the Iron Trials.
It's like a cross between Harry Potter and Magic Teacher's Son. Lots of interesting plot twists (one of which I guessed correctly this time). It ended on a cliffhanger, so I'm eagerly awaiting the 4th book in the series. My only criticism is that there are too many similarities to Harry Potter, e.g. Callum (the protagonist) AGAIN passes out after a conflict and wakes up in the infirmary, something which happens so often in this series that it keeos reminding me of Harry Potter repeatedly waking up in the "hospital wing" at Hogwarts!
I really love Paul Boehmer as a narrator, and I like this series. I find the series to be very visual with some great magic, and the character development is excellent. At times I feel like I am a tag-a-long part of the group. It's not serious, but it's entertaining.
I liked Call a lot, and Tamara. Call is so conflicted at times, but Tamara is just the best at always trying to do the right thing.
The narrator is easy to understand and clear. I had no trouble telling which character was talking It was very well read at a good rate. In fact, I have been looking for other titles with him as a narrator.
It was very funny in places. It never got too terribly deep or sad, it was good company and helped me pass the time as I did chores.
I liked this series enough that I got all the books. I enjoyed them all.
Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.
No, no spoilers. I will tell ya us that at the beginning of this book I was really feeling like this was a Harry Potter Rip Off , just a little more kid friendly. But as it pressed on, I began to remember why I like this book series. AGAIN SLOW at yhe beginning, better around chapter 9. great in the end.
