The Infernal Devices Series
Synopsis from Clockwork Angel:
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.
This Series totally gutted me. I had an idea of what would happen because I had read the Mortal Instruments before I started this series– but I had no idea it would hit me so hard.
The story revolves around the mystery of Tessa and her heritage and why does everyone want her special gifts? But it’s the love triangle that brought on the tears. Is it possible to be in love with two people at once? What do you in that case? The epitome of the best (& most emotional) love triangle I would’ve ever hoped to have read/imagined.
The way Cassandra ended this series– perfection. I laughed, I cried and in the end I sobbed like a baby. The quotes in this book are too awesome for words. I can’t even express in words what this series did to me, it’s something you have to experience for yourself. Everything I read from Cassandra is just awesome, at this point I think I would read her grocery lists.
