Tessa Gray should be happy – aren’t all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa’s heart, will do anything to save her.
Yes, I’m almost 30. Yes, I real YA fiction. YA fantasy. No, I don’t care if you think that’s lame or I have a bad taste in books. I really loved this series — more thank Harry Potter, Hunger Games or Clare’s other series, The Mortal Instruments. This book now takes the #1 spot of my favorite YA book. I’m one of those people who reads a book and falls into it — they consume me. But no book has ever over taken me like this one.
I can’t give a review without spoilers. All I can say is read it. Read the entire series, if you haven’t. Enjoy a love triangle unlike any other — all three sides are equal, one would never do something to hurt the others. Pure, selfless love. (Also known as agape…see my tattoo for reference) Above all, enjoy the ending. It may be too “happily ever after” for some. Too easy of a way out, but I like my stories tied in a bow.
A head’s up: I cried the entire last 50 pages. You have been warned.
