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 street—and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s 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 move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
My Thoughts

The hunt for the Magister continues. Although he never shows up in this book. Which i have to say does bug me a bit.  Tessa still tries to help in the hunt for Mortmain by using her power to Change. 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 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.

We finally learn Will's big secret. Although it wasn't that dramatic to be honest. Though I did feel a little bad for Will but then again I didn't. He had FIVE YEARS to look into it.
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.Which is a story within itself. Gideon and Gabriel were interesting. Two brothers always at each other over something. I would recommend this book (series) to anyone looking for a little romance and some mild demon fighting.

My Rating
