The Copper Gauntlet Review


Callum Hunt’s summer break isn’t like other kids’. His closest companion is a Chaos-ridden wolf, Havoc. His father suspects him of being secretly evil. And, of course, most kids aren’t heading back to the magical world of the Magisterium in the fall.

It’s not easy for Call . . . and it gets even harder after he checks out his basement and discovers that his dad might be trying to destroy both him and Havoc.

Call escapes to the Magisterium -- but things only intensify there. The Alkahest -- a copper gauntlet capable of separating certain magicians from their magic -- has been stolen. And in their search to discover the culprit, Call and his friends Aaron and Tamara awaken the attention of some very dangerous foes -- and get closer to an even more dangerous truth.

As the mysteries of the Magisterium deepen and widen, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take readers on an extraordinary journey through one boy’s conflict -- and a whole world’s fate.

My Thoughts:

So this was an amazing continuation of this series. We revisited ideas and events, with everything that is happening within the first book and expanded it to make complete chaos. The characters really did go all the way.

Call really went into the fact that he has the soul of The Enemy inside of him. He was thinking more of the lines, of what would the people who he really doesn't want to hate him, like Tamara and Aaron and it was more of an understanding for when they find out. He really isn't very honest, and the whole mission that they went on.

Tamara is a badass, and I am pretty sure that I said that in my review for the last book. I would link it, but it seems like too much work. Anyways, she really did get dragged through the mud by Call, during the book, and yet, she still helped him in what he was trying to do. We really got to see more about her home life, and what she was trying to do.

Aaron, I have to say, I don't know why but I don't really know if I like him or not. He seems to do anything that people tell him to do, without really thinking about what others will think about what he is doing. Aaron wasn't exactly someone who does anything for himself, and I can feel like it is going to turn against him eventually.


4.5 out of 5 stars
