    WIN The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare!

    06.09.14 | Permalink | 5 Comments

    Book cover courtesy of SyndeticsWe have TWO copies of the not-yet-released book The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare to give away!

    All you need to do to enter is tell us, if you could have one magical power, what would it be? Comment on this blog post to enter the draw, or tweet us @wcl_library using the hashtag #wclirontrial with your answer. You must be a Wellington City Libraries member to enter. Make sure to enter your email address when you submit your comment so that we can contact you if you win! Winners will be drawn at 5pm on Friday 19th September. Good luck!

    “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!
