Call has had awkward summer with his dad, who thinks Call knows more than he is letting on. After he finds out that his dad may be trying to kill him and his pet wolf, Havoc, Call runs away to his friend's house until he can go back to the Magisterium (which he believes is safe). But after the Alkahest - a copper gauntlet that can take magic away from a magician - is mysteriously stolen. Call, Tamara, Aaron, and Jasper embark on a perilous journey to get it back. Which means coming closer to the Enemy of Death.

From the best-selling authors, Holly Black and Cassandra Clare, The Copper Gauntlet (the second book in the Magisterium series) is greatly written for ages 10 to 13 who love an exceptional fantasy novel. I think my favorite character is Tamara because she is very brave and is a wonderful friend but sometimes is mysterious as well. This book tells you that there is no direct path to your future and that you can always change even when it seems impossible. Most of it is set on the character’s journey with lots of dead end and risky paths. My favorite part of the book is when they discover the tomb because it is sort of creepy and cool at the same time. If you are into magic and creepy things this is the book for you. After I read this book I immediately started looking up books by Holly and Cassandra and I found around 30 new books that I now need to read (I really badly want to read Doll Bones by Holly Black).
