Magisterium 5: The Golden Tower by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
Callum Hunt has been a hero and an outcast, a force of good and a portent of evil. While the doors of the Magisterium have been open to him, he has never felt entirely welcome. If anything, he has felt others’ resentment . . . and fear.
Now, as he begins his final year at the magical school, his place is less certain than ever. With one unique exception, he is estranged from most of his friends. A furtive darkness still hounds him. And the greatest challenge he will ever face is right around the corner.
Callum has a big secret as he starts his final year at the Magesterium. Meanwhile, a great evil still looms and a clever plan is formed. The Golden Tower is the final installment in this fantastic middle grade fantasy series. Reading this was bittersweet. I love this series – the engaging characters and the inspired story. And this final book is fast-paced and full of drama, suspense, and magic. With several surprises along the way – both good and heartbreaking, the excitement builds to a climactic ending that doesn’t disappoint. Don’t miss this series.
