This book starts out with Tessa Gray making her way to London to meet up with her brother Nate. Who moved there for reasons. Well technically, It starts out with James Carstair and William Herondale find a dead girl in a alley,but whatever. Emma, get back on track here.
Overall, I love this book. I love the characters and everything about it. I love the Steampunkiness about it and it made me love Cassandra Clare's writing. I will say there is a ATTIC SCENE. It is much like the GREENHOUSE SCENE from The Mortal Instrument: The City of Bones and THE BEACH SCENE from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I like action, but it has to have a little romance. I'm not going to tell you who it is with,but here is a quote.... "She had never imagined that the kiss would be so brief and desperate and wild. Or that it would taste of holy water. Holy water and blood."
Jem is amazing, and I honestly don't give him enough credit. I mean come on. His parabatai is Will.... He must have nerves of steel. I would definitely take Jem if he showed up at my door, but Will is my favorite. Madison and I actually have different opinions on the whole Will and Jem thing. Madison loves Jem and I love Will. If they ever come to life, I won't have to fight her over Will and she won't have to fight me over Jem. Then we would both team up to take out Tessa.
I rate this book.....
5 out of 5 stars
5 out of 5 Seraph Blades for Violence
4 out of 5 ATTIC SCENES for Romance
Recommended for ages 13 and up. (A lot of violence, but not a lot of mushy stuff)
