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 Shaodwhunters 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. (Goodreads)
This is another one of those last-book-in-a-series-I-don't-want-to-end novels that I avoided picking up for a little while because I knew I was going to be super sad when it was over. (I need to get over this aversion, but I can't help it!) Anyhow, needless to say, the other two books in the Infernal Devices really won me over, and the last book did nothing less. Tons of action, lots of lovable characters, and a twist that I guessed at but was happy to see played the way it was. Plus, Jem. To be honest, I'm rather tired of the "hurt and wounded boy with a heart of gold" kind of thing, and even though Will was awesome, Jem really stole the show for me. And, well, without spoilers, the Epilogue had me in a sobbing/laughing/depressed/overjoyed state for a good long while. Perfectly done, imho.
Okay, have you read this one? Any of the series? Thoughts? Did you like how it ended?
