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.
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.
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.
