All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic, and he has listened. He doesn’t really want to go to magic school based on the warnings from his father but he fails at failing and is admitted into the Magisterium school and the journey begins, however, everything isn’t as it seems.
So to everyone out there thinking this was going to be yet another Harry Potter rip-off it isn’t. Before I started the series I saw a lot of comments comparing it to Harry Potter but the story kind of took off differently.
Yes, it was similar to Harry Potter but it can be its own story without being needed to be compared to Harry Potter, the similarities end at a point. Yes, they are both at magic school, there’s the chosen one story but it isn’t a Harry Potter rip off. Does this book remind me of Harry Potter? Absolutely yes.
But it is unique in its own ways and the writers did absolutely well in the writing you stop thinking about Harry Potter at a point. I’m going to stop on that issue here.
The Magisterium series is a magical book and filled with amazing characters, a magic world, friendship themes, and plot twists. Yes, plot twists one that makes you question your morality depending on how you perceive the plot twists.
If you’re here you are probably wondering what that ending was about or totally gobsmacked about all the revelations and plot twists. If you haven’t read the books or completed the series turn around now. Simply cannot have this discussion without spoilers.
“Fire wants to burn
Water wants to flow
Air wants to rise
Earth wants to bind
Chaos wants to devour
Cal wants to live”
There are five books in this series and the titles are based on the classes they are in and things happening.

Now if you’ve read it, gather around let’s talk about the Magisterium series.
Does it make you question your morality? And how did you feel reading the book especially at the end knowing all that we knew and probably supported?
Let’s talk in the comment section.
This discussion is majorly on the last book The golden tower. In the final novel from the Magisterium series by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, Callum Hunt is faced with the task of destroying Alex Strike and the chaos that followed in the wake of the events of the penultimate novel The Silver Mask.
Callum Hunt is now entering his Gold Year, the final year of his magical training at the Magisterium. With Aaron now closer to Callum than ever before, Callum and his friends take on the challenge on scavenging for elementals that will finally be able to bring Alex down from his heights as a Makar and wielder of chaos magic.
With the stakes being higher than ever, Callum has to band together with friends old and new to save the magical world as he knows it from indefinite destruction.
Callum is in his final year has to destroy Alex who now seems to be the villain as he intends to raise an army using chaos.
This is the final book so the final battle is here too only that Callum is the bad guy MIND BLOWN.
He is the real bad guy who has been jumping bodies into chaos benders defying death. At the last battle, he jumps into Callumn and loses his memories in the process and grows up as Callum.
Now Callum has grown up as a good boy with friends and a family that loves him regardless but is he the bad guy or not? That’s the question.
I want to believe he’s a good guy but the real Callum is dead he was killed and his body taken over.
Do we want Callum to live or we want him to atone for his past actions? Regardless of the fact that he is kindf not bad.
Also on Alex and Aaron now Aaron is Alex too???? I feel we are on the good side of wrong for liking this. And through the course of the book, we suspected a lot of people to be the bad guy and it just ended up it was Alex he didn’t live up to the Villan status most of the time his actions were silly and judgement was poor. He seemed comical and childish sometimes.
Also, the ending was it just me that felt it was rushed. I hate when there’s a build-up or a couple of books and the resolution is on the last few pages.
Throughout the novels, we have been lead to believe that no-one should be overlooked for the role of villain–we have gone from Alastair to Rufus, from Anastasia to Call himself, but Alex has, by far, been my least favourite of all. Without a solid villain, any battle between good and evil will completely fall flat. I’m sorry to say this, but Magisterium certainly lacked depth in response to its weak villainous delivery.
