The Bronze Key (Magisterium, #3)The Bronze Key by Holly Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Bronze Key is the third book in the Magisterium series by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. The action picks back up in this book shortly after the ending of the second as Call, Aaron and Tamara are beginning their third or bronze year at the Magisterium, a school that teaches a special few magic. This particular book in the series picks up the story with a death among the students and a spy on the loose threatening Call.

The Magisterium series is meant for middle grade readers but as an adult I am still really enjoying the story in these books. The characters always seem a bit older and show more maturity than some young adult characters that you come across too which is nice all the while you do know their age and the actions have been age appropriate as they’ve grown over the series.

Again as with the second book in this series I felt the authors did a great job in reminding readers of what had happened previously in the series rather quickly. It’s been a year since reading the last book in this series so I went in hoping for a refresh and was quite impressed at how quickly within pages I felt they had caught me up enough to know just where it had left off.

Overall, another great action packed installment in the Magisterium series. A few really shocking moments in here that again have me wishing for the next book right away.

    • I think I covered the whole compared to H.P. in my first review. I’m one of the few that has never read that series, I just tend to put off the ones I constantly hear about and search out the hidden gems so Harry Potter is one I’ve ignored. But I don’t mind books that are similar most of the time either if they have their own story to them. I just look at it as if no one ever wrote another book on kids doing magic because of that series then the world would be a boring place. 🙂
