Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
The only reason the book got 3 stars is because 1- No one can beat Jace!; 2- the begining was sooo dry for some reason to me! I mean, so much happens right off the bat, I didnt get into it that much till half way thrugh. This book though is very fast paced and for any followers of Mrs.Clare , they will completely enjoy it. The victorian scene with such deteiled charaters and suprising events and shocking secrets will entrap anyone in its pages. Plus a love triangle that doesnt know its a love trinagle is just to yummy! Lol! Its got blood, kissing, lies, and robots... How could you not like it? c=
“You know," Gabriel said, "there was a time I thought we could be friends, Will."
"There was a time I thought I was a ferret," Will said, "but that turned out to be the opium haze. Did you know it had that effect? Because I didn't.”
Neat, but not how I picture Will...I wish Jem would have been on the cover x)
Very much ties in with the book which I like
Llisten to "The Section Quartet" radio on pandora; it really tunes you into the book!
