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.
