About this item

True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the #1 New York Times bestselling second book of the Infernal Devices trilogy.

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 streetand easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessas powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magisters 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 moveand that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though 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.

This book is great. It completely met my expectations. When I started reading it, I could not put it down, and when I finished it I wish it kept going. If you are a fan of The Mortal Instruments Series, you will love The Infernal Devices (Clockwork Angel, which is also great, and Clockwork Prince).

If you have not read The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, then I suggest buying those and reading them before starting these books. These are a "prequel" to those, but are not NEEDED to understand this series....though I suggest it since you will find a lot of hinted references in this one to characters from Mortal Instruments. With that said.... It took me a while to pick up this book (and the first one in the series) because Im not a big fan of books placed in history. I prefer present time (or near it) and dystopian/post-apocalyptic books. Boy was I missing out in waiting though! This story revolves around the London Institute for Shadowhunters in the late 1800's and its inhabitants as well as a few of the Downworlders from the Mortal Instruments series. Magnus Bane as well as Camille Belcourt grace this book with their parts, and you will notice a few surnames that match up with Mortal Instruments characters as well. They elaborate a bit more in this series about some of the things you hear about in Mortal Instruments, I have no specific examples, but if you have read the other ones then you will see the parts I am referring to in these ones. The story itself was very well written (like I have found Cassandra Clare's other work to be) and never has a dull moment! There is always something going on, and then there is a bit of love thrown in there to keep it interesting too. There are 3 main characters to this series (though I can only speak for this book and the second one. The third has not come out yet as of 8/13/12), Jem and Will who are shadowhunters who reside at the London Institute, and Tessa who has come to London from New York after her Aunt's passing to live with her brother Nate. The relationships between the characters are wonderful, complicated, and sometimes heartbreaking. I am in love with this series, as much as I was of all of the Mortal Instruments books. I am dreading the long wait for Clockwork Princess to be released but am extremely excited for it. I HIGHLY suggest these books! This is the second in the Infernal Devices series, the first book is called Clockwork Angel. The third is titled Clockwork Princess, though, as I mentioned before, it has not been released yet.
