Tessa Gray - I thought Tessa was just going to be a Shadowhunter, so when this book started, and we found out her power? However, they find out too late that they had fallen into a trap: Mortmain and Nate, who are working together, lured most of the Shadowhunters away from the Institute so they can get their hands on Tessa, and Mortmain, and not de Quincey, is the real identity of the Magister. Only that in TID series those recycled characters got different colors of eyes and hair, they were dressed in 19th century British outfits and they were living in a supposed Victorian era. Read all the sensational books in The Shadowhunter Chronicles: The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, The Bane Chronicles, The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours and The Shadowhunter's Codex.

If you have made it through this entire semi-review without nodding off, and happen to be a Shadowhunter fan, perhaps leave a comment down below telling me something you love about these books. Camille also says that her lover, the warlock Magnus Bane will attend the party with them for assistance. I knew about The Mortal Instruments series, but mistakenly believed that I wouldn't like it and since this one is set in Victorian London, a setting I adore, I figured I would start here; skipping TMI altogether. He also tells Tessa that the drug is killing him, but when Tessa asks him why he does not simply give up his dangerous profession, he declares that "there are more things to life than not dying". The rest of the book is based around her discovering the Shadow world and making a life with the new people she encounters.

I mean, let’s face it, if the only good things I can say about this book are that she’s made slight improvements so that I no longer feel the urge to commit seppuku by diving head first into a meat grinder, then it’s not high praise. This is my personal opinion and there is not a single problem in this book with vampires,they are well described and everything ,but I don't like these creatures so much. Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Tehran, Iran and spent much of her childhood travelling the world with her family, including one trek through the Himalayas as a toddler where she spent a month living in her father’s backpack. And then Tessa and Will went undercover and sneaked into a vampire party, but when the two of them were surrounded by a roomful a vampires, Tessa just had to lose all control and screamed her head off when she first caught sight of her brother Nate being held captive by the vampires.

His entire personality was a husky, arrogant voice and leaning against all the doorways he can find. Then we meet William Herondale, who's supposed to be a great warrior but who's also extremely handsome, cocky and filled with smartass remarks up his sleeves, who is rude to everyone else for no good reason.The next morning, Tessa encounters Jessamine taking care of Nate and Tessa instantly recognizes the fact that Jessamine wished to run away with Nate as he was a mundane. Charlotte Branwell - I wasn’t sure how I felt about Charlotte at first, but she really grew on me over the course of this book. For more info, find my review of City of Bones here – suitably titled Clary Fray Is Not My Bae (I was so proud of that). She's recycling storylines, conversations, personalities, plot-points, ideas and concepts from all around her and she recycles her own stuff (what little there is of it) just as frequently.

Dark is about to perform a spell to animate hundreds of automatons de Quincey possesses in Highgate. Six weeks later, Tessa is rescued by a pair of Shadowhunters—the older one named Henry Branwell and the younger named Will Herondale - who decapitate Mrs. For me, it felt like a similar recipe to the Mortal Instruments (don’t know if you noticed) but the new characters were. Her books have more than fifty million copies in print worldwide and have been translated into more than thirty-five languages.

After a confusing first introduction, including Will cursing at her, quoting poetry, and comparing himself to the fictional character, Sir Galahad, Will declares that he will help Tessa escape. I’m the first one to admit that this book has a very slow pacing and that there isn’t an awful lot of action, let alone an intriguing plot. They are the main point of view in the books you read, you get into their heads, which is why it's hard to like them - you just know so much about them, and sometimes it's too much.

The Shadowhunter Chronicles have been adapted as both a major motion picture and a television series. Oh, and it has to be super obvious who's going to win (it's usually the cocky jerk, not the nice guy). Yet, this trilogy is set in 1878 historical London, with heavy steampunk vibes, and murderous machines! Also, I would have respected Tessa more if she really carried out her plan to sacrifice herself so she wouldn't be used by the Magister!Since then I have completed the first three books in that series and before I knew it, it was time to reread Clockwork Angel. Even tho this book has a love triangle, which I truly hate, the relationships in this book are great. Okay, in case I didn’t make my feelings clear on liking Jem more than Will, I figured I would talk a little bit more about it. Will doesn’t hold Jace’s attraction, and whereas his lines sometimes caused me to smile a little, they never made me laugh out loud. But, we have to complete the full cliche, so of course Will has a mysterious past that leads Tessa to wonder how he copes with all of that pent up darkness… however, I’m slightly intrigued what it was all about.
