Magisterium Book Trailer ft. The Silver Mask
He had grown up with the crime shows on television, so he thought he was supposed to have a gruff roommate to show him the ropes and how to get really buff from lifting weights. He was supposed to hate the food and not start anything with anybody, for fear of getting shanked with a cleverly sculpted toothbrush knife. In the mornings, he was awoken when lights all over the Panopticon went from dim to blindingly bright. Blinking and yawning, he watched the other prisoners there seemed to be around fifty as they were let out of their cells. The other looked intimidated. Call, who had grown bored over the last six months, made a face just to see the freaked-out guard get more freaked-out. None of them saw him as a fifteen-year-old, as a kid.
With his secret exposed and others afraid of him, he is surprised by assistance from an unlikely source, and finds his own trust violated by a demand to do the impossible in return for his freedom. Call's guilt over Aaron's death as well as the possibility that Constantine's powers could fall into the wrong hands move him to action, but the horror of success leads to devastation. What does it mean to be a hero, and is Call up to the challenge when he has lost so much already? Black and Clare bring the intensity of this series to an all-time high, with an emotional turn of events involving the dignity of life, the nature of a soul, and the value of true friendship. The budding romance between Call and Tamara feels a little out of place under the circumstances, as readers might expect the two of them to focus on their predicament rather than sharing kisses, but the inevitability and chemistry of their relationship is undeniable. VERDICT A must-purchase for libraries that carry this series; devotees will be thrilled to get their hands on this installment, which ends on a chilling cliff-hanger.
