The Silver Mask (Magisterium #4)

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 impri...

  • Nina van der Kooij
    EDIT AFTER READINGThis was short. Why are they all so short? I liked this one and I'm looking forward to the final book. The ending was so weird... What's going on? I liked Call's journey through this book, but the plot kind of hurt. I just liked Aaron so much. Just finished book 3. Give me this one already? This will have spoilers for those who have not read the third book, so beware, you have been warned. EDIT 8/09/2016I don't think Aaron will ...

    BETTER FORMATTING OF THIS REVIEW IS ON MY BLOGThis is simply a mini review for two reasons. One, I got my wisdom teeth out on Thursday and am still getting back on my feet fro it. Two, this is the fourth book in a series and since I enjoy keeping my reviews spoiler free a mini review was the best way to conduct this.To start off; what a disappointment. I’ve been reading this for five days and it was in no way worth this. It was classic middle b...

    I love how Clare just doesn't even care anymore. Blatant HP rip off? Sure, why not!!
  • Lieblingsleseplatz
    Ich habe bereits die anderen 3 Teile der Magisterium Reihe verschlungen. Ich weiß noch genau, dass ich  mir Band aufgrund einer Buchempfehlung bei SWR3 geholt habe… Das war noch vor den Lieblingsleseplatz-Zeiten, aber schon da habe ich die Bücher gern empfohlen.Das Cover fügt sich gut in die Reihe ihrer Vorgänger ein, vor allem den Buchschnitt in rot metallic mag ich sehr.Es ist schwer, über einen vierten Band einer Reihe ohne Spoiler z...

    Enthält Spoiler zu den Vorgängern! ProtagonistenCallum ist nach sechs Monaten Gefängnis Aufenthalt immer noch der gleiche. Er hat sich nicht im geringsten verändert, wie ich es erwartet hätte. Er gibt sich immer noch an allem die Schuld und hat ein sehr geringes Selbstwertgefühl und meint, er würde seine Strafe schon verdienen. Aber er ist auch verzweifelt, denn sein bester Freund ist nicht mehr. Dann sind da noch diese bösen Leute, die i...

    I thought this book was going to heal my broken heart, but alas... nope. It's still very much broken.

    3.5 stars rounded up for a good finish.It's been a few months since we listened to The Bronze Key and waited for The Silver Mask to be released. In that time my kids seemed to have lost a bit of their momentum with the series and their interest in listening to the audiobook in the car waned about halfway through. No matter, I thought, I'll just read the rest on my own.Well as it turns out this book improved for me quite a bit by being read rather...

    I'm not really sure what to even rate this. This by far was my least favorite book in the series. I was surprised and disappointed by some of the choices that the authors decided to make in this book. My final decision on this book will all be decided by how they end the next and final book. Hopefully everything will be better.
  • Gabry
    3.5!Devo dire che come trama penso sia il migliore dopo il primo, finalmente la saga si è un po’ ripresa! Però... il romance. No. Ma proprio no.Ho apprezzato molto l’amicizia fra Callum ed Aaron, come sempre. Ed anche Subbuglio
  • JonathanC_E1
    There are spoilers In this book, I could make a lot of connections with different characters. One example is when Call "successfully" brought back Aaron in one try when he didn't even think of the consequences. He had no idea that it was going to work but he still did it because he was under pressure. He didn't even do a test run. I can connect to this because I also don't think about the consequences when under pressure. For example, when the cl...

    4.5 stars Omg. Omg. Omg. That was a rollercoaster of emotions.I need the next book now.

    Bulgarian review: have so much love for the 'Magisterium' series, for this world, these characters, this storyline... 'The Silver Mask' was for sure the best book so far, although i'm saying this for every new one in the series. They're just so good!!! They don't even feel like middle-grade, the plot is amazing, the twists, the atmosphere... Everything in the fourth book became much more darker than the p...

    this was so fun! But I didn't enjoy it as much as the first three, I'm very excited for the last book! :)

    I really NEED to read this book. I am dying to know what happens to the characters.

    Really disappointed. RTC

    Das Cover ist wieder einmal unglaublich gut gelungen. Ich liebe es einfach total. 😍 Das die silberne Maske abgebildet ist sowie Ketten, Schmetterlinge, Fledermäuse, etc. finde ich richtig cool gemacht. Auch das der Buchschnitt diesmal rot ist passt super zu den anderen Bänden. Ich bin also mit dem Cover mal wieder seeeehr zufrieden. 😄Nachdem alle denken, dass Call Aaron getötet hat, befindet dieser sich im Panoptikum, einem Gefängnis. K...

    Best Magisterium book so far, almost matching Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist. Read detailed review in Bulgarian here:

    Seeing everyone else rate this book so high I'm not sure what to say. Call and gang only visit one location in the entire book which is Joseph's house. I was really expecting some hostility from Call and Tamara towards having to be in the same room as Aaron's murderer. I was expecting some trauma from them having to watch their best friend die right in front of their eyes. I was expecting anger from Call and maybe a punch or two. Instead Alex is ...

    I don't understand all of the negative reviews. The only real issue I had was that it was darker, and I missed the humor. I think if these two books had some how been put together it would've been better but this at least didn't feel like a side quest. Other than Chaos magic, which is mentioned but not actually shown we don't get much of the magical world in this one. From the reviews I expected the romance to dominate the book but there were two...

    The third book ended with a cliff hanger that had me sad for 2 days?Thereare were 3 main characters.One died.On went to jail on the pretense of killing him and being an evil overlord yada Yada yada.The third didn't save the right one.In short:I MUST HAZ DIS!*EDIT*OH MY GAWD I FINALLY HAZ IT.*EDIT*The whole thing was abrupt.The characters didnt have much feel to them.And compared to the preevious books this was really slow paced and very short!The...

    2.5 stars: they did us so wrongwhat was this book? cassie + holly did the fandom so wrong in this. legit no one asked for that forced hetero romance. not to mention, everyone was REALLY ooc (out of character) in this. call wasn't sassy, or angsty, he just fell flat and was shallow. tamara made some very questionable decisions, some she definitely wouldn't have made in the pervious books. (view spoiler)[ aaron was evil-ish and wasn't friendly. AND...

    “Don't take it personally," Call said. "Lots of people find me really annoying. It's not just you.”I know many people don't like these books but for me they're fun and quick reads!And I think The silver mask is one of the best books of the series.I love Call and Aaron's friendship, it's always been my favorite aspect of the series.They love each other and they don't care about each other's flaws. Plus, after that last sentence I have some hop...
