Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy
Tessa Gray should be happy - aren't all brides happy?
Yet as she prepares for her wedding, a net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute.
A new demon appears, one linked by blood and secrecy to Mortmain, the man who plans to use his army of pitiless automatons, the Infernal Devices, to destroy the Shadowhunters. Mortmain needs only one last item to complete his plan. He needs Tessa. And Jem and Will, the boys who lay equal claim to Tessa's heart, will do anything to save her.
*This review is spoiler free and is just my overall feelings about the book. I do not give away any details on any of the events that occur in the book.
This is one of those books that is so hard to review. I do not want to say anything about the actual events in the book because I know that I avoided any reviews or mentions of this book like the plague until I could finish it myself out of fear of hearing anything about it. I can probably say this is my favorite book of the year so far and it's going to be mighty hard to top!! I have loved this series since the first book and it was bittersweet going into this, but it was so amazing and honestly ended perfectly for me!!
I don't know that I have ever felt so much while reading a book. This book had my emotions on overdrive to the point I would be bawling my eyes out while smiling at the same time. I physically hurt at times reading this and it took me a long time, even for me to get through the book because it was actually too hard to continue at some points. That is all due to how invested in the story and the characters I have become through this series. I knew there would be tears, lots of them. I didn't know how utterly broken and put back together I would be over and over again. I was so nervous about where this book would go and how it would end, and all I will say about that is, it was so amazing what Cassandra Clare has done with this. Even though I was broken to pieces and could feel my heart constricting, I can say this was amazing and beautiful and she has ended the series in such a way that I think it will make everyone happy.
