I still can’t believe this is the last book. I was sad when I started reading it because I knew that this was the end of the series. Well, lets see what happens.
In this one Tessa really comes into her own and finds out what it means to be a Shadowhunter and it seems like she really likes what she’s becoming apart of and loves her new family. There’s also some sounds of wedding bells in the air, but who are the ones getting married?! Will also has an unexpected guest into the Institute as well, but I don’t want to give that away quite yet. Tessa, Will, and Jem think they have found out exactly where the magister is hiding, and how to get rid of him.
In my opinion Jem is the strongest one of them all and has decided how long he wants to live, and what he wants to live for. What I also loved about this particular book was how much love was in the air even with all of the dark times going on in the Institute. Even the Lightwoods with all of their troubles have managed to find love in unexpected places. I’ve already said multiple times how much I love this series. Trying to summarize it without giving everything is the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to write. I’m sad that this series is over, and I hope that Cassandra Clare has more coming for us. If she doesn’t I hope that more and more people read these miraculous series both The Mortal Instruments, and Infernal Devices. I know that she will with the move coming out soon. Until next time,

Cassandra Clare just loves to make me have to keep reading her books. Tessa, Will, and Jem are at it again and now there is so much more going on in London. There are unanswered questions about The Magister, of who he is, where he is, and why is he doing the things that he’s doing. Tessa is falling more and more in love with Will and Jem, and Will is doing what he can to push her away. The fate of the Institute and how it is run is put into question and more details about Will’s past is put into the forefront. Also The Lightwoods’ with all of their pure bred breeding turn out not to be so pure as well.
I honestly don’t want to give more of it away! It is amazing as usual and it captivated me from beginning to end, so much so that as soon as I was done with it I used my meager college money and bought the next one, Clockwork Princess, almost immediately when I was done. There are so many unexpected journeys in this book, and surprises that you want to know what happens next all the time making it impossible to put down. I highly recommend this book and all of the others as well. Until Next Time,

If you thought Cassandra Clare was done after the stories of Jace and Clary, you were wrong. She decided to show us the beginning of their stories with a little trip back in time to London, to start at the stories of Tessa, Will, and Jem. Their story starts off a little different, with Will rescuing an unknown damsel in distress, Tessa. Tessa finds herself in the hands of two great Shadowhunters, Will and Jem, but she also finds out that she has powers that she never knew she had. It turns out Tessa is a shape shifter, and somehow part demon though she has no idea how that happened. Life at the Institute is changed forever after Tessa has come to be apart of their family and home.
What I do really like about this series is that if you read Mortal Instruments first, you will see a lot of names in this book that you saw before like Wayland, Lightwood, and Magnus Bane. It is those little details that help bring both books together and allows you to see where some of the characters got the personality that we see from Mortal Instruments in Infernal Devices.
There are a lot cool twists and turns to this book, which I would expect from Clare, but at the same time I felt like I was still readying The Mortal Instruments series. There was a really attractive male with a hot head attitude, and a girl who had more powers than she actually new about who is in love with the hot headed boy, and that same boy doesn’t know how to act around her. Another female who think she’s too good for most, and another male who is the lesser, but still amazing version of the boy.
Until Next Time
