“From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic. 
From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will — is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It’s a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.”

The Iron Trial is the first in a new series of five books, co-created by the writers of Tithe and The Mortal Instuments series respectively. Get excited!

A big thank you to Random House for supplying us with these great books!

Whano, whano! Haramai te toki! Haumi ē! Hui ē! Tāiki ē!

Ānei te pakiwaitara ……

Kua horoia ngā rīhi, ka paoho mai te pouaka whakaata, “I tēnei wā ka huri ki ngā matapae huarere mō āpōpō, tērā te whakatūpato a Te Ratonga Tirorangi, he āwhā, he hau āwhiwhio …” Kātahi ka weto te pouaka whakaata! Ka weto ngā raiti o te whare! Kua pō uriuri.

Ngaro hirea ana nga tangi o te ao. Matapiko ana te hau awhiowhio i waho, ka tau. PAKO! Keko ana te tiro a Pita i te aro pena o te hitawe. Ka taka te mahana o te whare, kui ana te hau o roto. Pakaru ana tana hamuti i te kitenga o te atarangi a tana Kuia.

E kui, kaua koe e whakapupuni atu i ngā kokonga o te whare, i whakaaro au ko koe tētahi tangata kōhuru, tata au ki te tioro. Ka kata pai te kuia, ānei te rama e Makere, tērā pea mēnā ka kite koe i tētahi tangata kōhuru, karanga mai, mā tāua ia e whakarau!

I roto i te matapihi i kitea i tetahi tangata kohuru pera ki nga korero ta kui, “E KUI, E KUI, HAERE MAI!!” I ohorere te tangata engari i haere tonu ki roto i te matapihi ki te tikina i ahau engari ara a kui e patua ana i te tane me tona peke, ka tangohia ia i tona huna kanohi a ka ki ia “Nau tenei whare?” ka whaka utu a kui “ae haere atu kaore koe ka noho ki konei inaeanei!!” ka tiro te tane ki ahau,a, ka patai ia ” He aha tou ingoa e tama?” Kaore ahau ka taea te whakautu, kaore toku waha ka whakae moku ki te whakaputa toku ingoa ki tenei tane.

“Makere, tiki i taku waea pukoro, waea atu ki te pirihimana. Māku teēnei tangata e wepua… INAIANEI HAERE!”
Ka oma atu a Makere. Ka hikoi taumaha mai tēnei tangata nui, weriweri ki ahau….”Auē e tama, me pēhea koe e taieritanga i ahau”
Ka hikina ia i ahau ma taku korokoro…”HA HA HAAAAA, KUA ROA TE WA I TATARI AHAU MO TENEI WA TONU. KUA MATE KATOA TOKU WHANAU, ATU I A KOE….PITA!
“K – Ko wai koe, p-pehea koe mohio a-ai I ahau?’’ te pakaru haere o toku reo
“E Pita, ko koe taku tama, ko au….to Papa!”
“PITA PITA, KARE TE WAEA E KA ANA, KARE TONA HIKO….”

…….ka aha ināianei?

Anō te pai!

Kua riro i a HAPINA te paraihe angitu a te kaiwhakawā, he rawe tāu tuhituhi īnanahi.
Ākuanei ka tuku imera ki a koe e Hapina .

Kua horoia ngā rīhi, ka paoho mai te pouaka whakaata, “I tēnei wā ka huri ki ngā matapae huarere mō āpōpō, tērā te whakatūpato a Te Ratonga Tirorangi, he āwhā, he hau āwhiwhio …” Kātahi ka weto te pouaka whakaata! Ka weto ngā raiti o te whare! Kua pō uriuri.
