The Golden Tower is here!

 

I am so excited that the final book of the Magisterium series is out. It’s been a long five year journey for me and Cassie, certainly for Call — and probably for you too, dear reader. I am so glad that it worked out the way we hoped back when we first dreamed up this series on a flight to Los Angeles, plotting it out and probably confusing the people sitting near us. It’s been an amazing journey and I have learned so much. I hope you like the way it ends.

For more information about the book, go here.

        I can wait as long as I it takes to begin on the Collegium series. I just have to say, what an amazing series. I read and finished the last two books in one day!

          Omg, that’s so me too. I can’t wait for another book, if there will be one). When I finished the last book, and I was like, my brain just EXPLODED ;p I NEED a collegium series, and I agree, I will wait for as long as it takes.

      I would also love a Collegium series, it would be a perfect add-on to the books you already wrote, kind of like the Heros of Olympus as a add-on to the Percy Jackson. It would be awesome

    Will you ever make a Collegium book series about call going to the mage college with Tamara and Aaron going on all sorts of adventures?

        This is my favorite series of all time! I’ve never been so unable to put a book down! I’ve been reading some of these comments, and I would really love it if there was a collegium series. No matter how long it takes for it to come out! I honestly think that this is my favorite book series of all time, even though I’ve read the Harry Potter series. I love the work you and Cassie are doing, and hope that we get to see more of Call’s adventures in the future!

          Back when i was finishing fourth or fifth grade (I’m going into ninth) i recieved the iron trial from my teacher. I had no idea what the book was, so it sat on my shelf for a couple months until i looked for another book to read, and found it. I cracked it open, read it, but for some reason, I just couldn’t stop! There is only one other series out of the 10-12 series i have finished that i have felt that way about before, being the Jack Blank series. I loved all the characters, and yes, even Jasper (hes just so funny). During the third book, i was so sad to see Alex as a bad character, because I liked him. When Aaron died, i couldn’t believe it and it just reminded me of what Marcus said: “one of you will die, one of you will fail, and one of you is already dead.” I dont know if thats exactly the way he said it… anyhow, when Alastair turned into a devoured, i just felt sad that such a kind and loving character sacrificed himself for the good of his kid, his friend, and the very school he despises. When Aaron got brought back and he and Call and Tamara passed through the Golden Gate, i felt giddy and excited, which again, i only felt on the Jack Blank series. (Read it! It’s amazing!) I was so sad that the series ended, but was satisfied with the ending. I’m sorry to hear your schedules are filled, and am eagerly waiting for another series to arise that captivates me like the Magisterium did. Thanks for the wonderful series and i totally understand if the Collegium is not a series, and will just have to keep myself busy with completing the magisterium series a 5th time.

    This is simply a thank you! I saw this book on the shelves and felt a sense of compltetion and was quite bubbly for the rest of the day. I have been reading the series all five years, and I am so happy to have finally read the “end” of Call’s story (although I am equally sad my time with Call is over) I can’t thank you and Cassandra enough for these amazing books you have supplied me with and am proud to have The Golden Tower as the newest addition to my bookshelf. So once again, thank you! (Although I am rather curious how Aaron clears up the whole “new body that used to belong to someone else” thing)

    I really loved the series it was amazing.
    When you guys have time(which I hope you will) that you make a collegium series with Call, Aaron, and Tamara and even Jasper(and havoc). I would love to see what new adventures and relationships they have

    Hello! I have read some of these comments, and know that you have talked about making a series with the collegium and I understand it won’t happen right away, but I was wondering if it is something you see in the future.

    reply
    • Holly Black

      Right now, Cassie and I have talked about it, but we haven’t come to any conclusion. I think it depends on how we feel once she finishes the pile of books she’s got to write!

      • Aayan

        I really hope that you guys do come out with a collegium series. Does Cassandra Clare have a lot of books to write or just a few?

    I just wanted to say that this is one of the best series I have ever read and you are my absolute favorite author.

    I’m a person who has trouvke reading just one book, but I finished The Iron Trial and finished all the books in rapid succession. I’ve never been so immersed before!

    I’m also very eager to read The Wicked King!

    Thank you so much for making a series that helped fuel my love for writing and helped me excel in school.

    I am your oldest fan. No. Really. I turn 50 in one month 🙂
    I have been riveted to these books after my daughter shoved them at me and told me READ THEM. I loved the ideas you explored about chaos and the choices that people make when they are overwhelmed with no good answer.
    But you left way more questions than answers so please dont leave us hanging. This Maugris idea needs to be more than a plot answer and I fear that Maugris jumped with Aaron but only you can answer that. And you have only scratched the surface of your chaos ideas. I hope you can find time to do it justice. Until then, thank you for an ageless compelling read!

    reply
    • Holly Black

      Hope you had a happy birthday! I am so glad you like the books. They were fun for me to write (and I am only a few years from 50), so I am glad that they’re fun to read too!

    • BigFan

      I really enjoyed reading The Golden Tower, which I finished just five minutes ago. I can’t belive it has been nearly five years since I bought The Iron Trial. When I read it for the first time, I fell in love with the story and couldn’t wait for the upcoming books, but I am so happy I did. Now, I almost regret that The Golden Tower was the last one. I know you both must be very bussy, but I also hope that sometime in the futere you will be able to start and also finish Collegium. If it happens, and I hope so, I will be happy to read it.

    Hello! Do you guys think you will ever make a Collegium series? I have read some of the other comments and I know Cassie is busy and I also know that I and lots of other readers are eager for another series. I wonder that if you decide to write it what will happen to the characters and what is the Collegium like? Thanks!

    Wow just finished book series and can I say something,just wow a beautiful book series by far one of my favorites and after Clare gets done with those books you tell her you both should start the collegium series because who knows the possibilities or creativity you could bring

    Yo leí los libros cuando salieron en español y tengo que decir que los disfruté mucho. La única queja es que son muy cortos. Siempre me quedan ganas de leer un poco más.

    Just finished The Golden Tower, and I fo hope to read more about Call and his friends in the future. You’ve said several times here that both Cassie and you have full schedules, but maybe in a few years you’ll revisit things?

    I was honestly left glad for Call, Aaron, and Tamara, but curious how things will pan out in their futures.

    Keep up the good work!

    Holly, this series is my most favorite series of books or books I have ever read. I am really anticipating a collegium series. I think you are a great writer. Could you ever do a signing north of Chicago? As soon as I got the first book the iron trial, I was astonished by how good of a book it was. I just wan’t more of the series with all the characters. In my opinion, this series would make a great movie.

  16. Ethan Turner

    I know your schedules are busy, But will there be a chance of it ever being written? These books have honestly been my favorite out of all the books I’ve ever read, There’s Action, Jaspers “romance.” There’s heartbreak and heartwarming moments, They even have Havoc, A formerly Chaos-Ridden dog. I think if you wrote the Collegium that you’d get more orders for books than before, And you’d still keep the income from people who are getting into the series as well for people who don’t know what it is yet. Just know that if you do decide to write another Collegium series or something, Just know that it’ll be supported by us. (and I’ll most likely pre-order if so.) I constantly read the series, As I keep re-reading it as it’s just AMAZING, It never gets old.

    After having your schedules cleared, have you considered doing the Collegium series? At least tempted to do more? I just love the relationship between Tamara and Call so much. Anyways, in your own opinion now, would you like to continue?

    I would be really sad if there wasn’t books about calls experience in the collegium I think it would sell well and the first book could be about them trying to get calls dad back to living

    Hi! I wanted to tell you that your book was chosen as a Rebecca Caudill. (Illinois reward) I read it for that reason for my school, and immediately fell in love. I finished the whole series, and now I am wondering if you are ever planning on continuing in the Collegium? Thanks for answering and I hope the answer is yes 😀

      • Tintin

        Not to offend you, great author, I personally think it’s practically a crime to end Call’s series like that without even finishing his story during his time in the collegium, people are begging for a continueing series and I’m sure we(including Rick RIordan, I’ve also read every single of his books) all think it will be such a hit as it’s original series.

    Hi, I have read your series and found that it was like some others, yet better! I thought that the Golden Tower was a bit of a abrupt ending and would love to see more books. (Maybe when that pile of books is finished?)

  28. Nic

    I really enjoyed the whole series and think, when the both of you have the time, should continue the series. This series has to much untapped potential for it to end here. I know your very busy, but when your schedules are cleared up you should really consider it.

    reply
  29. Nic

    I really enjoyed the whole series from book 1 to 5. I understand you both are very busy, but I think it be great for everyone if you co to ur the series. I completely understand that both of you have a ton of things you are doing, but when your schedules clear up please consider it. It would make me and a lot of people happy to see more of these books. Thank you and good luck.

        Hey Holly, I just finished book five and I really enjoyed it! I’ve been reading some of the comments here and a lot of people seem to want more (along with myself). If you do end up writing a Collegium series or add more to the Magisterium series, I was wondering if you could bring Maugris more into the story. He felt like an important character and it was a shocking revelation when he was first mentioned, but he never really came back up. I thought it would be cool if Maugris maybe took over somehow in the Collegium if you didn’t already have any ideas for a main “bad guy”. Anyway, keep up the good writing!

  31. Cole

    Absolutely loved this series. A new series to go along with the first would be perfect and the opportunity for character development would be amazing to see! Would be similar to how Percy Jackson goes into Heroes of Olympus, in which all the characters mature from series to series. Hope once Cassie’s schedule frees up that a Collegium series will become a reality!

    Hi Mrs. black I was wondering if you could make another series at the collegium. You have a lot of fans including me that have read the other books starting with the iron trails and read it over and over and over. I had the idea that Call using chaos can cure a devoured of sorts and does go to the collegium has interesting life story including marrying Tamara. You have a lot of fans waiting. I have had so much fun reading your books, write back soon!

    Thank you so much for writing such amazing and original stories. My son and I are huge fans and look forward to reading more in the future. Like many others we’d love to see Callum and the crew at the Collegium if you and Cassie ever have time. Thanks for all the adventures!

    I’d like to add my request to the many already here, and beg for a return of Call and friends in a Collegium series. Once you described the Collegium in book 3, I knew it would be a wonderful place for their adventures to continue as they grow up and start to mature – as individuals AND as mages!

    I’m also an older fan: going on 58 years of being a voracious reader. Plus, my name is also Holly! So thanks for all the fabulous, magical stories, please keep them coming!!!!

    Please, please, please make another series about the collegium!! I loved these book so much I stayed up all night to read The Golden Tower! I am getting now, what people call a book hangover. I read this great series and I don’t know where to go after this… If you have any suggestions of books that are like this series, or a confirmation that a collegium series is coming out, I would love either one. Probably the new series would be better, but I’m okay with just a suggestion!
