How did I get this book: Library rental
Why did I read this book: I picked up The Iron Trial the first book in the series after it came out because it was about a magic school and because it sounded similar to Harry Potter and I loved it so naturally I needed to pick up book two!
Aaron looked over at Call as though he was expecting Call to take back the offer.
“Yeah” Call said. “I mean, if he still wants.”
That made Aaron give him a lopsided grin. “I want.”
“Karate-chopping ninjas in a mudslide?” Tamara gave Aaron and Call a dark look. “Could you guys try to lay low?”
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.
Black and Clare are amazing authors there is no doubt about it! You can see both of their characteristics in the writing style but they both flow so well together it is easy to miss!
Seeing new aspects of the world like different chaos ridden and automotones was neat but I really would have like to see more of the students learning magic. I picked up the series because it was about magic school and about a third of the way in they were leaving the Magisterium but other than that The Copper Gauntlet was great and I am excited to see where Callum goes in the next book!
