La plupart des jeunes feraient tout en leur pouvoir pour réussir l'épreuve de fer, mais pas Callum Hunt. Callum veut échouer. Son père lui a appris que la magie n'augurait rien de bon et qu'il valait mieux s'en éloigner. Or Callum ne réussira pas à rater le test et se retrouvera au Magisterium, un endroit à la fois sinistre et sensationnel, où le passé et l'avenir s'entremêlent d'une étrange façon. L'épreuve de fer n'est que la première d'une série d'épreuves beaucoup plus intenses.
Twelve-year-old Callum Hunt has grown up knowing three rules by heart. Never trust a magician. Never pass a test a magician gives you. And never let a magician take you to the Magisterium.
Call is about to break all the rules. And when he does, his life will change in ways he can't possibly imagine. Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial.
Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail. All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. So he tries his best to do his worst - and fails at failing. Now the Magisterium awaits him. It's a place that's both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future. The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come... From the remarkable imaginations of bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a heartstopping, mind-blowing, pulse-pounding plunge into the magical unknown.
Original title: Magisterium: The Iron Trial
