Cassandra Clare (Mortal Instruments) and Holly Black (Spiderwick Chronicles) are teaming up for a five-book young adult fantasy series. The first book will be titled The Iron Trial. It will be published by Scholastic in 2014.

The press release gives an overview of the plot, “In this exciting new series, twelve-year-old Callum Hunt has grown up knowing three rules by heart. Never trust a magician. Never pass a test a magician gives you. And never let a magician take you to the Magisterium. Callum is about to break all the rules. And when he does, his life will change in ways he can’t possibly imagine.”

Constantin Film, who is producing the movie adaptation of The Mortal Instruments, has already snapped up the film rights for this series.
