True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the enchanting second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.

A book to read!
Wow! An incredibly wonderful book! Cassie clare knows how to torture her readers! She's one of my favourite authors!
This book is a must read for everyone from the romance lover to the thrill seeker. This sequel to "Clockwork Angel" surpassed my expectations. The plot was well thought out and there were so many surprises. There is not one character that did not undergo a transformation in this book. The love stories in it are so well done and very enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone.
I read the hardcover book not the ebook.
Definitely a must-read
