In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.
SPOILERS FREE REVIEW:
this book was more character focused than the first one there was definitely some action but mostly it was about the characters we get to know backstories and what will their role will be in the final book.
it was a little bit boring around the first 100 pages though but it definitely picked up afterward. some of the things that aren’t that important were dealt with in this book as well .
overall it’s really a good second book in a trilogy it moved the pieces on how it will be in the final book there was some heartbreaking moments and enjoyable ones .
SPOILERS REVIEW :
ughh will will will and JEM!! these two will break my heart, the whole thing with will’s family and why he ran away from them was reasonable even though i consider it a cassandra’s thing now the broken boy the curse thing but i wasn’t complaining about it plus i really want to know mortmain’s reason behind helping his family.
tessa’s feelings were also understandable i hate love triangles but the one in this book i don’t it only makes my heart break.
i liked how cassandra dealt with the side characters here henry and charlotte i love them both but they’re love live wasn’t that important but it was good thing that it was dealt with in this book also jessamine and nate *ugh i feel sorry for her* and sophie i really like her and i;m glad to see that she found someone other than jem .
” there is nothing more dangerous than a man bent on revenge a man who has been bent on it for nearly three score years who has nurtured it from a tiny poisonous seed to a icing choking flower he will see it through unless you end him first”
” lies and secret tessa they are like a cancer in the soul they eat away what’s good and leave only destruction behind “
” i’ve never minded it “he went on” being lost that is i had always thought one could not be truly lost if one new one’s own heart but i fear i may be lost without knowing yours “
have a nice day….xx
