THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING
A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.
Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Will and Jem, will do anything to save her. As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?
The tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.
5 out of 5 stars
This book was beautiful, and everything I had hoped it would be. I loved every second of this book, and I wish that I could read this trilogy again for the first time. Tessa and Jem were great together, but Tessa and Will were absolutely perfect. I have loved every part of this entire trilogy, and I can’t wait to read her future books. The premise behind this story revolved around Mortmain and his Clockwork Creatures. Mortmain was obsessed with Tessa in an odd way that was protective, but very obsessive. Will confessed his love to Tessa, but she couldn’t act on her feelings because she was engaged to Jem. The love story in this series was perfect for it’s imperfections, and the writing was gorgeous. Cassandra Clare is one of my favorite authors of all time, and her writing style is unlike anything I’ve read before. It felt like I was actually there with the family living through them; it’s hard to find something that special.
The relationships between Will, Tessa, and Jem was perfectly intertwined. After reading this, I do think it is possible to love more than one person at the same time for different reasons. Tessa wanted to protect Jem, but she wanted the fire that burned inside Will. Every single one of the characters was completely original and uniquely their own, and that is one of my favorite things about Cassandra Clare’s writing. Magnus is still my favorite from Cassie’s books, though. He’s perfect. *heart*
I would love to be Tessa, because she got the privilege to love and be loved by the true loves of her life. There isn’t a single thing I would have changed about this whole series.
