This is the first book in the Magisterium series and tells the story of Callum (or Cal), who's been told his whole life to stay away from magic. When the Iron Trial is held, Cal tries to do his worst so he won't be admitted to the Magisterium, but his worst is still enough to get him admitted. Now that he finds himself at the magical school, he finds that sinister things await. Will he and his new friends know how to protect themselves or who they can trust?
