The Golden Tower (Book 5 - Magisterium series)
The Golden Tower - Holly Black,Cassandra Clare

Audience: Middle Grade

 

For the first time in Call's life, the house he had grown up in looked small.

- first sentence

 

I've missed the Magisterium; I didn't realize how much until I started reading this book. It has been a while, so I went to the Book Series Recaps website and read the summaries of the first four books. Call and his friends have been through a lot in the past 4 years, and the final year of magic school isn't any easier, in fact, it may be the toughest year yet.

 

Call is full of doubt and flaws; he wants to be good, but he has reason to doubt who he is at his very core. He questions his actions and decisions constantly, but his intentions are always good. He wants to protect his friends and the school, he wants the girl to like him, he wants to please his father and impress his teachers. He insists he isn't a hero, he is just left with no choice. But he never runs from danger, in fact, he seems to find it more than most.

 

In this final year at school, Call isn't the only one who doubts his intentions. Most of the other students fear and resent him and his connection to the Enemy of Death. Many of his friends aren't exactly his friends anymore. He feels alone, except for the voice in his head that is (I won't explain this because I don't want to spoil it).

 

This book is fantastic. My only complaint is that this is the final book in the series. I keep hoping the story might continue when Call and his friends go to the Collegium, but the summary refers to this as "the monumental conclusion to the Magisterium series," so it seems like I'm out of luck.

 

I highly recommend this book especially to grades 4-8.

Complication
Complication - Elle Thorne
This was an enjoyable novella. Well paced, enjoyable characters, and enough of a background/story to believe the romance. I liked the concept of the shifters having their own court (shifter supreme court or SSC).

Hell for the Holidays
Hell for the Holidays - Celia Kyle
They don't celebrate Christmas in hell. But this year Daman wants to do something special for the "kids." That includes decorating and kidnapping Holly, one of the best window decorators. 
I liked the writing and thought there were many funny moments. Like any time death, die, kill was mentioned, Samael would show up (the demon of death). There are multiple demons names "Daman." However, the relationship moved too fast to be believable. Insta-lust yes. Insta-love nope! Then this major issue (kidnapping). But this kept me interested and entertained last evening.
