SPOILER FOR THE IRON TRIAL!

I know this slipped out a little, but here, officially, is the cover for The Copper Gauntlet, Book 2 of the Magisterium series!!! As you can see from the cover, Call has even more problems than he knew about at the end of Book One.

It’s fun to be posting about this right now, because I am in France with Cassie, starting Book 3 of Magisterium. We have it about halfway plotted out and are both rubbing our hands together in evil glee whenever we talk about what’s coming.

And here’s the jacket copy (including definite spoilers for Book 1):

WHAT IF YOUR SOUL WAS NOT YOUR OWN?
WHAT IF YOU KNEW YOU WERE DESTINED FOR EVIL?

Callum Hunt has returned from the Magisterium victorious. He is now a mage in his own right – a Copper Year student. He has friends; he feels at home in the winding tunnels of the mysterious magical school.

But Call hides a terrible secret.

His soul is not his own. His body a vessel for a powerful evil mage, wielder of chaos magic … murderer.

Salvation could lie in the Alkahest, a mysterious copper gauntlet.
But it is dangerous object, with a violent history. It could destroy everything Call knows and loves …

And release the evil within him

THINK YOU KNOW MAGIC? THINK AGAIN.
ENTER THE BREATHTAKING WORLD OF THE MAGISTERIUM

Cassie Clare shares ‘Magisterium’ character description

It’s a year away before The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes out, but Cassie took to Tumblr to share some fan art by Cassandra Jean to talk about one of the characters, Callum Hunt.

Tell us description of characters Magisterium to do fan art? I know that Call has an injured leg, Tamara has black hair, but you can go into details?— helenaandsherry
 I guess I can start with Call? I feel odd going into detail without Holly! Call is average height for his age, but one of his legs is shorter than the other. He has had surgeries on it to correct it since he was a child but none of them worked. He leg hurts often; it’s not why he’s a cranky boy, but he is one. He has dark hair and gray eyes. He hates people commenting on his limp, he rides a skateboard sometimes, he once kidnapped a naked mole rat. Here’s Cassandra JP’s interpretation of him: I did realize recently that it’s fall 2013 which means The Iron Trial comes out in one year. Eeek!
