Description:

A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. 

He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray.

Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever.

As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain’s clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army?

Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.

My Thoughts: 

Wow there is so much about this book the good the bad the sad and so on and so on. Probably be the first review that won't due it justice so much happens.

As Tessa gets ready to marry James Carstairs she finds out that Mortmain wants her to finish his army.  To do what no one knows.  Meanwhile Jem is dying has been dying but the medicine is running out and Will and Tessa are running out of time to save him.  Mortmain kidnaps Tessa to complete his army and it's up to Will to save her.

Jem sends Will to find Tessa and bring her home, knowing that Will is also in love with Tessa.  Jem makes one last decision that will impact everyone and then Will feels their bond die.  Which to Will means Jem has died.

This book had everything you could hope for love, anguish, rage, horror, action, adventure.  Cassandra Clare is always great at delivering such great books and this trilogy gave you that.  And at the end was bittersweet as we know that Tessa is immortal and will continue on like Magnus Bane.  Which unfortunately means she outlives everyone in the Infernal Devices. It's a great emotional journey!
