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 is the first book in a while that made me cry, cry and then cry some more. Cry because it’s so bloody good. Cry because Tessa is the luckiest girl this side of the planet. Cry because OMG Will. OMG Jem. The only love triangle in history that made it impossible to choose. Will is everything a girl could dream of in a boyfriend on the bad boy end of the spectrum. But he’s not just “bad boy”. He’s so much more. He’s compassionate and caring and willing to put his own feelings aside for Jem and that makes him a bloody hero.

But then there’s Jem. And silver hair and violins and romance and awesomeness all combined in one package. God, I love Jem. And Will. And I can’t bloody choose so why the heck would Tessa have to?

But romance isn’t everything. There’s still Mortmain and his evil army, the automatons, the counsul working against the clave, Tessa’s own heritage shred in doubt and mystery and danger lurking around every corner. In this fascinating, breathtaking world filled with warlocks and shadowhunters and things a dozen times worse, everything can happen. Cassandra Clare’s imagination knows no boundaries in this final installment, and she wraps the story up with such an interesting storyline that even thinking about it makes me cry again.

This book was awesome. Give me more about the shadowhunters. MORE.
