The Dark Sisters are part of a group that includes mundanes and Downworlders called the Pandemonium Club.
Out of the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction
Members are not only involved in drinking, gambling and prostitution, but they delve into the world of magic and the occult.
Charlotte and Henry pay a visit to a mundane named Mortmain, for whom Nate Tessa's missing brother once worked. Mortmain admits to being a member of the Pandemonium Club and to having introduced Nate to it as well. Mortmain's company makes cogs, the type Will found in the Dark Sisters' home. He admits that a powerful Downworlder came to him looking for cheap machinery. Hesitantly, he names de Quincey, a vampire who has supposedly been an ally to the Shadowhunters.
More evidence is found that the Magister has already begun creating an army of automatons to destroy them. From The Codex: They are descended from an archangel named Raziel. The black runic marks cut into their skin with a stylus-like tool are written in the language of heaven.
The marks provide different kinds of protection including healing and concealing. Raziel gave the Shadowhunters powerful magic objects called the Mortal Instruments, including a tiny piece of land that humans couldn't enter called Idris.
The Codex says vampires and werewolves are humans infected with demon disease. Warlocks are the offspring of humans and demons. It tells how vampires employ subjugates, mundanes who swear themselves to the service of and provide blood to their vampire masters. Tessa reads about the Accords, a historic treaty between the Shadowhunters and Downworlders in which they agree to fight demons as their common foe.
Groups such as Night Children vampires , Lilith's children warlocks , Fairies and Moon's Children were all present at the signing. Will likes a London street filled with gambling halls, opium dens and brothels. Many such establishments are run or frequented by Downworlders. Downworlders often draw humans into their card games and trick them so the mundanes will be forced into servitude to pay their debts. The Pandemonium Club is one such establishment with an emphasis on occult activities.
Members use demon drugs and summon demons and spirits. The Magister invents an army of mechanical creatures to fight the Shadowhunters. One such creature warns the Nephilim to beware; it says their angel cannot protect them against that which neither God nor the Devil has made, an army born of neither heaven nor hell. The creatures are covered in skin that has been harvested from dead human bodies like those found in the Dark Sisters' house.
It was rumored the Dark Sisters would pay handsomely for bodies of dead mundanes. The Magister plans to animate the automatons using a binding spell to infuse them with demonic energy.
Mortmain is surprised by the physical appearance of the Shadowhunters, because he says the Nephilim in the Bible were hideous monsters. He tells them he is a long-time student of the occult.
She lives almost all her life in books, dreaming of having the kind of adventures the heroines she reads about do—until she is forced to travel from New York to London when her Aunt dies, to her brother.
She is left in the hands of only a pair of mysterious—and sinister—women called the Dark Sisters, who seem to have been 'hired' by him.
The Shadowhunters of the London Institute may be Tessa's only hope of finding Nate, but their mysterious world of demons and and her newfound talent holds many dangers for her—especially when she realizes she might be more a part of it than she'd thought. Tessa is a shape-shifter, which means, if you give her any item, then she can transform into that person which is very painful for Tessa , and the person could also speak through her.
She finds herself trapped within the queer world of the Nephilim, with no family, no knowledge of where she really comes from, and no idea of what to do.
She soon befriends the Shadowhunters, and is stuck within a love triangle with two remarkable young lads: William Herondale and James Carstairs.
She feels guilty over her brother, who is still incredibly evil and using someone close to her to spy on them. This book is as full of danger and excitement as the first. Tessa is trying to stay away from brooding Will and she continues to grow closer to Jem. Jem is perfection. In Tessa's words he is so good and kind and beautiful. I could talk about him forever. I so hope for once the good guy wins because if anyone deserves it, Jem does. He is the greatest friend to everyone and I so hope Tessa really continues to see what a perfect match he is for her.
Every line he said had my stomach in butterflies and me swooning all over the place. I literally wore out pages Don't forget to read the scene from Jem's POV here http: We finally learn Will's big secret. Although it wasn't that big of a reveal for me. I was honestly hoping for something a little more dramatic. I felt a little bad for Will but then again I didn't. Yes he was young when it first happened but he could of talked to Jem about it or looked into it himself.
I was highly disappointed with this plot line. I enjoyed Sophie getting more of a story and a love interest. I also loved getting to know Charlotte and Henry more and seeing them support each other. Gideon and Gabriel were interesting and I loved the bickering between them and the other characters. While I am looking forward to Clockwork Princess, I fear heartbreak. So I will continue to ride this perfect high of happiness while I can.
This book left me full of joy and swooning. View all 86 comments. Sep 04, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: You serve a greater cause.
Your life is not yours to throw away. This is easily my favorite Cassie Clare book yet, and I truly had such a wonderful time reading. This is the second installment in this history prequel s 1. This is the second installment in this history prequel series that stars a young girl named Tessa, who has traveled to London from America, who was trying to find her brother in Clockwork Angel! Well, she found him, and this book is dealing with the ramifications of what she found out.
Yet, this book is also about Tessa trying to carve out a place for herself in a world that is unfamiliar to her in so many ways, while also trying to learn about her true past and who she wants to be in the future. Okay, my review is going to touch on a couple key things that happened in this book and things that have happened in previous books, so please use caution reading the rest of this review if you have not read this book and its predecessors!
And she is truly believing that her father was a demon, which could completely be true and really intrigues me. He's biracial, Chinese and British, living with a terminal illness, and just the sweetest character in all of literature! But you know that. You must know. We learned so much about him and we finally get to see what happened to him five years ago. If only I could feel the same about Jace! Lord, help me! I honestly love how determined she is for herself, but also how proud and supportive she is of her found family.
I love this house mom, forever. I really loved her in Clockwork Angel , and that love only grew in this one. I really hope she keeps remembering her worth, regardless of what happens with boys in higher stations.
Seriously, such a fantastic character. And such a caring character, who just makes this world so much brighter. Like, friends, I was laughing out loud. For real? Like I said above, this is my favorite Cassie Clare to date!
I just feel like this book took on a much darker and more mature theme, while also blending in some amazing adventure and all that good angst! I just never wanted to put this book down, and I was always smiling or crying while reading it. This was nothing short of a treat to read. The romance in this book was actually incredible. Friends, this is one of my favorite love triangles of all time. I will say that I can completely understand how people can see issue with Tessa maybe feeling obligated to start something with Jem because he is dying.
Even if I also believe with my entire heart that those feelings are stronger for Will. Thoughts of the two of them swirled together in her head until she fell asleep finally, not sure if she was dreaming of kissing one of them, or the other. From just friendships and wanting to support and love them unconditionally, and how magical it is when we find our own found family.
And to all that messy love in-between. Could you split your heart in half? These three individuals love each other so much that it just feels right, maybe even obvious, that they should be a triad or a vee. I mean, it could be, but it also means being there emotionally for your two partners, too. Cassie Clare, hear my prayers. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.
That you were the center of everything I did and felt and thought. Overall, I loved this book. Easily my favorite Cassie Clare book, yet! Again, I just want to say a big thank you to all for motivating me to pick this up, and for not spoiling me for anything.

The "team Gale' 'team Peeta' thing already came close to ruining the Hunger Games for me and after reading this and the MI trilogy I think these might be my favorite books now.

If they go down like the twilight books did, with everybody either loving them and being obnoxious and choosing retarded "sides" then sensible people who think this side nonsense is a bunch of BS and that teenagers only like the books because they want to bang the characters will hate the books without reading them.
Please don't ruin these books with the 'side' nonsense! A character can be much nicer, sweeter and cuter than another Jem but to say that you are on their side and therefore against the other is retarded and the reason that most people 'hate' the Twilight Saga.
They don't hate the books which they haven't read but rather the over-excited fans who only care about one boy over the other. This is real literature, don't ruin it for the true bookies View all 51 comments. Oct 27, Katerina rated it it was amazing Shelves: Jul 01, Bangadybangz rated it it was amazing.
Good God, this book has created quite the set-up for Clockwork Princess! I don't even care that the main villain didn't even make an appearance, this love triangle has me so enthralled XD Bring on the feels!!!

I have no regrets, and I love this book. I managed to love and hate Clockwork Prince at the same time, simply because the love triangle continues to rip out out my heart and splatter it all over the floor.
I'm going to try to not, you know, fangirl over Jem. It's so hard for me, bu 4. It's so hard for me, but - haha. I can't do it. I'm still going to fangirl. Plot Clockwork Prince continues Tessa's search for the Magister, and the stakes are higher than ever now - if Charlotte is replaced as head of the Institute, who gets kicked to the streets and made a valuable victim?
Tessa, darlings. Then, of course, there's that crushing love triangle and action, action, and more action. Alright, that's actually a lie just one, okay? I mean, take Twilight, for example. Who thought that she would actually end up with Jacob? Even Jacob's fangirls knew that Bella wouldn't choose Jacob.
By the way Look at the way he puckers his lips. Is he constipated? The homeless man sleeping under the bridge knew Bella would end up with Edward! It was no surprise - it was a useless, angsty, infuriating shape get it? Wait, holy crap, does he have abs?! Now, I think that Clockwork Prince owns the damn thing. Sure - most of us believe it'll be Will, because he was Tessa's first flame, he 'understands her', he's the badboy, and, like.
But, my dilemma? Too bad. Actually, just have threesome! Problem solved. Why doesn't anyone think of that? Kid Cudi did. I love Will. Really, I do. He loves to read, and he loves poetry, and he's actually very thoughtful and wise. He grew up to fast, and yes - he's horrible to Tessa sometimes. But he has his reasons , and he'd gladly give up his life for her. Like Jem. I am completely and utterly in love with Jem.
But Jem is 1 on my list. Both are in love with Tessa, and I just want Jem to be happy. Characters Clare manages to make amazing, funny, and heartfelt characters in her stories. The girl was okay enough. I honestly remain baffled at how she attracted the attention of the two most amazing guys in the universe, but I love how she has a smartass response to Will's douchy comments. There are no words to describe how loving this guy is. He'd never say a harmful word to anyone unless he really needs to , and he's just ugh so bloody hot.
Thank you for ruining my chances of ever having a boyfriend, Ms. You must be so proud. Will is hysterical and swoon-worthy. You know how a lot of YA authors read: The more minor characters are mostly are intriguing, and I liked most of them well enough.
But, wait, there's Magnus. MagnusMagnusMagnus, my love. I could read a whole book about this witty, hot, uproarious warlock. Writing I'm rather 'meh' about Clare's writing - I like it, I really do, but it's just so purple and metaphor-filled.
You could slim down half the book if you just cut out all the similes in that brick. Such writing makes the story hard to follow and rather confusing. I cracked up several times during Clockwork Prince, and this is why: Magnus made a slip-second decision.
Dear Ms. Clare, Please don't kill of Jem, or many us us Jem lovers are going to die as well. There will be an outbreak of teen deaths bitch please, we died of a cracked heart around the world if he does die, or if Tessa dumps his poor sexy ass. Actually, it would be better if he stays with Tessa. Because it's time the good guy gets the girl. It's always the first guy who meets the girl who ends up with her.
Give him a chance? We don't want Jem to end up with some random female character, or dead. We just want him and Will happy. Also, if you do hurt Jem, sorry, but. We'll cut you.

Apr 21, Sana rated it did not like it Shelves: Cassandra Clare's books just aren't for me. View all 89 comments. This series makes me want to cry because of how absolutely fantastic it is. I was worried that Clockwork Prince wouldn't live up to the greatness that Clockwork Angel was but it turned out to be just as great, or even better than the first book.
This series really never fails to amaze me! I can't even begin to count how many times my heart broke and put itself back together again while reading Clockwork Prince. Especially for Will. Poor, William Herondale.
All those wasted years, and what it' This series makes me want to cry because of how absolutely fantastic it is. All those wasted years, and what it's caused And Jessamine too! She may be ungrateful and a sorry excuse of a Shadowhunter, but deep down she's still just a young girl just like Tessa, that yearns for love and a family. I really hope Jessamine redeems herself in Clockwork Princess and finally puts those Shadowhunter abilities to good use like she was born to do.
As for the love triangle, I am still firmly a Wessa shipper. I appreciate the development between Jem and Tessa, but it's definitely not the same as Will and Tessa's relationship. Will and Tessa's interactions, although scarce, still had more meaning to it than that of Jem and Tessa's moments. Maybe that's just my Wessa heart talking but that's just my opinion on that matter. Jem and Tessa's relationship is sweet, but I feel like Tessa is only settling for Jem in order to forget about Will.
Still, I was a little underwhelmed with the lack of Will and Tessa compared to the first book but I'm hoping now with Will's curse out of the way, we'll be seeing a lot of a Wessa in Clockwork Princess. Pretty please, Cassandra Clare! I still honestly do believe that Will and Tessa are endgame even after the ending of this book. With Jem's condition I feel like I already know what's coming in Clockwork Princess.
Especially for Will, if it does happen, because I can't wait to start off the new year to the final conclusion to The Infernal Devices! View all 10 comments. About halfway through this book I started liking it considerably more than the first one.
I'm excited for the finale and all the angst. Video to come on my channel, as always. View all 7 comments. Nov 17, Mariama marked it as abandoned. I simply can't wait! I don't understand why everyone is taking sides. She's so obviously going to choose Will. Anyone with a half a brain would choose Jem. Sweet, funny beautiful Jem. I know I would. But hey what can you do? Jan 12, kari rated it it was ok Shelves: Five hundred pages in which very little occurs other than say it with me the love triangle.
This whole book is a love triangle in search of a story. Do they find Mortmain? Do they even find out where he might be? Do they find out why Mortmain wants Tessa? Do they find out what exactly Tessa is? Do Tessa and Jem get up close and personal? Do Tessa and Will get up close and personal? Do you get my point? I hope so. I don't like this. There is nothing that happens here that moves Five hundred pages in which very little occurs other than say it with me the love triangle.
There is nothing that happens here that moves the plot along. Not one thing, unless you believe that the book isn't about the actual automaton army or the evil plot of its creator and is, in fact, only supposed to be about the triangle, in which case, you will be very happy.
I was so angry that she didn't even take a day to think things over view spoiler [ and the idea that you would marry someone to make them happy even if it breaks your own heart is plainly stupid, not to mention that we've been down a similar road before with Jace and Clary. Also, what about Will's heart? Who cares if his is broken because Gem, I mean Jem, is so perfect and delicate that he mustn't be upset.
They had been engaged at that time for what, a few hours? Who does Tessa think she is? Does she think Jem would want to marry her if he knew he wasn't the first choice? Puh-leez hide spoiler ] Honestly, Ms. Clare, please think up something else for tension in your books. Most of the book is everyone sitting around the dining table or in the drawing room or various bedrooms Tessa and talking, plotting what they will do, where they will go, etc.
And most of the action seems only to be situations in which Tessa can be alone with either of her boys or both. They travel to Yorkshire, both boys. They search out Will in Whitechapel, Jem and then a cuddle up with Will. A fancy ball at Lightwood's estate, Will. And that is pretty much all that actually happens.
I've said this before about other books, but I do think it bears repeating. If Tessa was a guy messing this way with two hot girls, would readers think it is perfectly fine? I really don't think they would. And, honestly Tessa's behavior isn't okay. I don't mean that in the Victorian sense, but almost having sex with this boy one night and the next night being all over the other one, it is questionable behavior, to say the least.
I read over that scene several times to see where I might have missed it and those words or that inference simply isn't there. Never said it.
Jem also says he is getting better and getting stronger and Will and Tessa seem to believe this even thought Jem is lying, knowingly lying because his symptoms have worsened. Are we as readers not supposed to know this? It's either lying or poor editing, not sure which. And I keep thinking of one more thing. Tessa's balcony snogging with Will is thought to be the result of demon-spiked drink.
Okay, if you want to tell yourself that, Tessa, you air-headed, addle-pated twit, then go right ahead. But let's take a little peek at your other indiscretion, shall we? You almost got naked with Jem and could taste the drugs on his lips , etc. So maybe you were also under the influence of drugs there. Ever stop to think about that one? Will and Jem are parabatai , closer than brothers, finish each other's sentences, no that's wrong, they actually finish each other's thoughts.
All of that, they are so close, they are each other's rock, each other's steadfast friend when they have no friends left. And neither one of them, not at all, not even a tiny little teeny weeny hint, neither one has any idea that the other one is in love with the girl he loves.
I find that impossible to believe. Neither one would notice that the other acts differently around this girl. Neither one would say, "hey, dude" what's up with that? Seriously, wouldn't they? I know gentlemen of this time were very circumspect in their conversation and all that, but come the heck on. Even Fitzwilliam Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, the paragon of manners and proper behavior hey, if Clare can use those references then so can I discusses matters of the heart with his friend, Bingley so you can't say that men don't do that.
I will finish off this series. There had best be only one more book as planned. Unfortunately, there is nothing original here and unless Clare can come up with a new plot that isn't merely romantic angst for no real reason masquerading as whatever this is supposed to be, I will think more than twice about starting any new series she might write. View all 32 comments. I'm not sure why I've taken to them more precisely; maybe it's that I really enjoy the historical setting, the darker, more oppressive atmosphere, and I think my dislike of Jace and indifference to Clary in TMI makes it that much easier to love Tessa, Jem, and even Will.
A lot happened in this book, and just in case I am in fact not the last person on earth to read this, I won't give away any spoilers, but I was particularly pleased to know that my suspicions of a certain character were indeed valid. I know better than to get my hopes up for my ship to take sail, but I just can't help being a little happy that my precious pumpkin is on top for the moment. View all 17 comments. Apr 11, Cait rated it really liked it Shelves: Real rating is 3. So, basically, what I'm trying to say is take this review with a grain of salt; unless you're a total Will fan like me you will probably love this book to Real rating is 3.
Like I said I'm totally in the minority with this book the average is 4. Honestly, didn't think that I liked Will enough to be that devastated by what Clare does in this book, but I was. And it affected how I viewed the whole rest of the book. I'll just come right out and say it: I hated the last twenty-five percent of that book. I said it with a smile so I'm still calm. Jem really is a great character and I love him a lot, but just not as Tessa's "main squeeze. Not only did I find the whole drama between Will, Jem, and Tessa really kind of unnecessary because it seems to me and many other people that Tessa is still somehow going to be with Will, and now this really forces Clare to kill off either Jem or Will in the next book as my friend in the comment section of this book quite rightly said, "I want to see some legit pain, you know?
She's gotta top the heartache of this book. I don't know how, but she has to unless she wants the entire climax to be lame and anti-climactic.
See a Problem?
I mean what the hell, Clare?! I know that there is going to be the next book of her other series in-between these two, but I honestly like the Infernal Devices series a lot more than Mortal Instruments, and having her have us wait so long for this book just really bothers me.
I know it builds up excitement and all that shit stuff, but for me I just find it to be, like I said, bothersome. I just want to know what happens, dammit! Clare's really got me wrapped around her little finger, doesn't she? Damn her Really, the rest of this book is great, for the most part. The only thing about this book that I really didn't enjoy was how Clare handled of the mystery of Tessa's birth and who her father is.
We get a couple of really vague ideas about who she is and some other random facts, but for how important and a driving force it was for this book and the other book, I feel like we should have found out more about her past than what we get. Overall, though, this is a great book, unless you're like me and totally can't get past the devastating horribleness that is the tragicalosity yes I just made up that word, and I'm totally awesome that is my sexy little Willy-bear.
I'll just be in my bed, crying about Will, until the next book comes out. View all 72 comments. Sep 08, Marcy Jo rated it it was amazing Shelves: Readers have come to expect certain things from any book written by Cassandra Clare: Characters that we wish to be, or to have fall in love with us.
Characters that we love, and hate, and love to hate who make us reevaluate our own world views along the way. Characters that are each their very own complete creation, and so fleshed out that they come fully to life for the reader.
Characters with personalities and quirks and preferences and histories, characters that are never stereotypes or caricatures or tokens.
I suspect hunger. At least one scene so heartbreaking that it makes you cry. At least one scene so ninja-out-of-the-blue hilarious that you burst into surprised laughter no matter where you are.
She maintains her humanity despite her am I a warlock? Am I NOT a warlock? But I will say that right from the very first page I was completely engaged in the story. She did NOT. A book that demands our own honesty in return. It is a book that does exactly what the very best books are supposed to do.

I kind of wish I had read these books before TMI because they're way more interesting. I absolutely love this time period! I was a little annoyed in Clockwork Angel because Jessamine irritated me and Will reminded me so much of Jace, but all of that was pretty much cleared up here. BUT Will still did that whole "I love you but I have to act like a jerk and push you away because of reasons" thing that gets super old.
I'm not the biggest fan of the writing, though, and thought the book d 3. I'm not the biggest fan of the writing, though, and thought the book dragged I've found with all of Cassandra Clare's books that you can skip an entire page or two and not miss anything. There's just a lot of filler. But oh my goodness I cannot stand the way this particular love triangle is being carried out right now.
I took off a full star just out of sheer annoyance at that. It was ok and emotional at first, but when Tessa kept stringing these guys along and kissing the other one every other scene I just got exasperated. I know this love triangle is wildly popular, but I'm not into it. Maybe if Tessa would actually take action instead of letting everything happen to her, I'd like her more. This book reminded me a lot of The Dark Days Club, so I'm throwing that out there as a recommendation!
Dear Sweet Book! I am so loving this trilogy. I am only hoping good things happen in the last book. Dear God, I will have to Hulk Smash many things if it doesn't!
That enemy would be Mortmain. He makes automatons and makes them kill people and he gets the werewolves hooked on a drug that kills them. He's just a really cheerful villain.
He is trying to g Dear Sweet Book! He is trying to gain control over the Institute by getting one of the shadowhunter's to side with him and try to take Charlotte out of the game. He is trying to get them all kicked out of the institute by showing that she doesn't do her job well.
I'm not saying who the evil shadowhunter is but he is older and he has kids and he eventually gets his, so there! I don't know if I even mentioned in my first review that James Carstairs Jem and the love of my clockwork life, has been slowly dying since he was a little boy.
But they have a way to keep him from dying too quickly and I hope to hell they find a cure in the last book or I will throw things. And there is this little love triangle going on with Tessa, Will and Jem. I hate it. There are reasons for it, but I don't want to give too much information out about that. Tessa fell in love with Will first and he pushed her away because of this secret that I can't tell you.
She then goes over to Jem's side because he is awesome and she realizes she loves him too. Anyway, things happen in that area and I'm telling you right now if she hurts Jem I'm going to crawl into the book and beat her arse! Moving on I also love Magnus Bane in the book. I loved him when I read some of the Mortal Instruments books that I have to go back and read all of now.
He's a warlock and he's bad to the bone and funny and actually nice. This one's blue. This one's more. I will tear it from your body while you scream. The voice is different. And the number of eyes. It's part of some deal that the brothers, Gabriel and Gideon have to do.
But we like Gideon, he's a good guy and does the right thing. There are a few more people brought into the house, they find a spy among them, more creepy automatons, some fight outs, drugs, craziness, and revelations galore. Oh and that ending!!!

Because I loved the characters, the writing style and this world has really grown on me. The writing style 5,0 stars The writing style is a solid five stars! The humor in these books is amazing! The way these characters interact with each other, tell jokes, make a fool out of each other, but also the way some things are brought to the writer Will sprinting through the garden after the blue demon and being so happy and proud of himself after he got the tooth flashes through mind.
There are so many things explained so well in this one. Like the Shadowhunter marriage, engagements or being Parabatai. Main Character 5,0 stars Okay I love Tessa. I love her kindness, her girlyness , her sweetness, her sassiness.. I love that whatever situation she is put in she saves herself. Other characters 5,0 stars!!!! I liked Henry in the previous book but he just evolved in this book to become one of my favorites.
I absolutely love him being like this crazy scientist and his inventions are so cool! I also liked that he popped up a bit more and got protective of Charlotte because my problem with him in Clockwork Angel was that he was a bit of a wimp. Charlotte was just as amazing as in the previous book! I loved how strong she was, and how she held everything together in the hard times.
And I loved how she proved herself in this book to the counsel and I loved the scene where she went to Benedict Lightwoods! Jem was just absolutely perfect.
I love every interaction between him and Tessa or him and Will. I feel so much for his situation. Will… Oh Will Does that say enough? And can we please talk about this curse. Wow it broke my heart into tiny little pieces. How could he life like that for five years! And that continues in this book. I mean she has this beautiful family of Shadowhunters who would die for her and she just betrays them to the first guy she sees. And even though I hate her character, Cassandra still made me feel bad for her when she got send to the Silent City.
I still really like Sophie, and I hope she is going to be happy with Gideon. Will and Jem are goalsss. Like literally! I love them both so much. And Cassandra can write such great romantic scenes. And can we just talk about the other relationships that are formed in this wonderful book! They are so cute. But also Gideon and Sophie. Yeah I did love it because of the characters and I understood that some small things needed to happen. So I really appreciated that Cassandra took the time to really show the growth in this characters.
I for example loved that Tessa and Sophie also got training and the fun scenes this brought us and the character growth. But in the beginning I really found this book suffering of second book syndrome. Just a bridge pun intended to the next installment to make some extra money.
But a little over half way in this book I truly started to enjoy this one like I did with Clockwork Angel. Favorite scenes: Jem—" Jem, rising to his feet, clapped his hands over Will's mouth.
Will nodded, blue eyes blazing. Tessa was staring at him in amazement; they all were. She had seen Will many things—amused, bitter, condescending, angry, pitying—but never giddy before. Jem let him go. And why the freaking heck did I have to cry the scene Nate died!
I hated the guy?! I just could not imagine what this boy has been through in his life, so awful.Poor, William Herondale.
There is a certain mood and style that is decidedly steeped in the foundations of this research, and the dexterous language and witty dialogue feel pretty nearly perfect and true to the time—with allowances for fantasy and magic, of course.
I hated the guy?! About Cassandra Clare. The writing was difficult for me, but I've never really jived well with Clare's style.
I don't know how many times my heart was just so close to breaking. View all comments. Please don't ruin these books with the 'side' nonsense! I loved how it brought in more characters, and you could see alliances emerging. That sounds fairly interesting, right?
