The Infernal Devices By Cassandra Clare

Infernal Devices

 

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.


 

My Review: 

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. 

♥♥♥♥♥- I have no words other than it’s a Must Read!

The Mortal Instruments Series By Cassandra Clare

Mortal Instruments

 

The Mortal Instruments

Synopsis from City of Bones: 

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.


 

My Review:

Okay, I have to admit I’m slightly obsessed with this series. You are fully emerged and invested in this new shadowhunter lifestyle. The whole love triangle thing definitely was what kept me going through the first three books, I had to prove that this wasn’t true. I love the sarcastic humor and banter between all the characters. It was everything one is looking for in a book —  hilarious dialogue, hint of mystery, some romance, and action packed.

The last three books is when the story really evolved. I love the way it just tied everything up in the end yet left it open for more to develop– it was just perfection.

I found it beautifully written, but I have to say sometimes the description got too much for me. I found myself skipping paragraphs of description to get to the dialogue. But the way that Cassandra hooks us in will make me read all of her other books. I wish I could un-read them so that I could read them all over again!

♥♥♥♥♥- 5 Amazing stars! Must Read Series!
