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.
Review- That last book in the series was beautiful I cried so much in this book Tessa is engaged to Jem now I knew this book was going to tear out my heart and stomp on it and it did in many ways . When Gabriel comes and tells everyone his father is a worm the demon pox took over they go to fight and Tessa is still wearing her wedding dress Cecily is such a bad ass she jumps on the worm and Gabriel ends up killing it . The counsel goes to Gabriel and Gideon and asks them to spy on Charlotte what an asshole they don't do it . Mortimain ends up buying all the yin fein so this could kill Jem and he doesn't want anyone looking for a cure again he ends up throwing the rest of what he has away . oh the scene where Jem and will first met was so adorable . Will tells Tessa he loves her and she ends up being taken and jessie was killed . So will goes to find Tessa and Henry is working on a portal so he created the portal which is really cool and we find out what tessa is she is part shadowhunter part demon and she was taken and Mortimain is going to make more of the clockwork people but we find out that there is a angel living in tessa's necklace . When Jem dies and Will can feel it I was sobbing . But Will finds Tessa and he tells her he loves her and then they have sexy time and will has a tattoo ;) . Sophie is going to be a shadowhunter and Gideon proposes to her eeek so cute so they get the portal working and they go to find Tessa and will and the only others that join them are silent brothers . And Magnus is the one to find Tessa and Will haha I love Magnus so the fight as they are fighting and I thought Henry was dead from these clockwork people which made me cry . And the Counsel was killed by them . one of the silent brothers is JEM OMG how did this happen and Tessa saves the day with her Angel but she has a long time waking up and Jem says goodbye to Tessa and Will . Sophie becomes a shadowhunter Gabriel and Cecily kiss and Will proposes to tessa eeek so romantic so cute when it goes to the epilogue and when will died I was done for I was sobbing and Tessa and Jem meet to talk and he's not a silent brother anymore oh my god this end of this trilogy killed me I loved it .
You don't think I can fight." Tessa said, drawing back and matching his silvery gaze with her own. "Because I'm a girl."
"I don't think you can fight because you're wearing a wedding dress", said Jem. "For what it's worth, I don't think Will could fight in that dress either."
"Perhaps not," said Will, who had ears like a bat. "But I would make a radiant bride.”
Life is a book, and there are a thousand pages I have not read. I would read them together with you, as many as I can, before I die -"
She put her hand against his chest, just over his heart, and felt its beat against her palm, a unique time signature that was all its own. "I only wish you would not speak of dying," she said. "But even for that, yes, I know how you are with your words, and, Will- I love all of them. Every word you say. The silly ones, the mad ones, the beautiful ones, and the ones that are only for me. I love them, and I love you.”
“They say you cannot love two people equally at once,” she said. “And perhaps for others that is so. But you and Will—you are not like two ordinary people, two people who might have been jealous of each other, or who would have imagined my love for one of them diminished by my love of the other. You merged your souls when you were both children. I could not have loved Will so much if I had not loved you as well. And I could not love you as I do if I had not loved Will as I did.”
Five,' she said. Her lips and cheeks were flushed, but her gaze was steady.
'Five?' Gabriel echoed blankly.
'My rating,' she said, and smiled at him. 'Your skill and technique may, perhaps, require work, but the native talent is certainly there. What you require is practice.'
'And you are willing to be my tutor?'
'I should be very insulted if you chose another,' Cecily said, and leaned up to kiss him again.”
A very magnanimous statement, Gideon,” said Magnus.
Magnus waved a hand. “All Lightwoods look the same to me.”
It's all very romantic , Gabriel said , and then frowned . Or it would be , if my brother could get a word out without sounding like a choking frog . I fear he will go down in history as one the world's great wooers of woman .
So you are dying for Love then , Will said finally his voice sounded constricted to his own ears . Dying a little faster for love . And there are worse things to die for
