Publication:October 10th 2017 by Scholastic Press 

Goodreads Description:
A generation ago, Constantine Madden came close to achieving what no magician had ever achieved: the ability to bring back the dead. He didn't succeed . . . but he did find a way to keep himself alive, inside a young child named Callum Hunt. Now Call is one of the most feared and reviled students in the history of the Magisterium, thought to be responsible for a devastating death and an ever-present threat of war. As a result, Call has been imprisoned and interrogated. Everyone wants to know what Constantine was up to-and how he lives on. But Call has no idea. It is only when he's broken out of prison that the full potential of Constantine's plan is suddenly in his hands . . . and he must decide what to do with his power. In this spellbinding fourth book of Magisterium, bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare take us beyond the realm of the living and into the dangers of the dead.

My Thoughts:

The Silver Mask is my favourite book in the Magisterium series; I absolutely loved it. I had so much fun reading this one. I wasn't a huge fan of the Bronze Key so I was hesitant going it and I was blown away by how much I enjoyed The Silver Mask. I think the characters being 15 in this one made it a lot easier for me to read.

I love how the characters are getting older! It was very amusing seeing them dealing with growing up and dealing with relationships and whatnot.

Call is so funny, I loved how blunt and honest he is in this book; he says exactly what he's thinking and it is hilarious at times. I loved it.

The plot was pretty predictable but it's middle grade so that is to be expected but what I wasn't expecting was how dark it would get. There was also some great action scenes at the end which I loved.

Jasper had a good amount of page time in this book which I liked, he brings a comedic element to the story and I liked how he is slowly becoming friends with the others.

The Silver Mask is by far my favourite book in the series and I can't wait for the next one! My only complaint was it was too short, why are middle grade books always so short?! I wanted more, I cannot believe we have to wait months for the next one.

Thanks for reading,
A :)
