Tessa reached to brush the damp hair from his forehead. He leaned into her touch, his eyes closing. Like my parents before me. It does not mean I hate my father. But I honor the gift they gave me, the blood of the Angel, the trust placed in me, the vows I have taken. Nor, I think, would I make a very good vampire. No, Tessa. I would rather die and be reborn and see the sun again, than live to the end of the world without daylight. His eyes softened slightly.
For a moment, they were in perfect understanding. Charlotte and Henry pay a visit to a mundane named Mortmain, for whom Nate Tessa's missing brother once worked. Mortmain admits to being a member of the Pandemonium Club and to having introduced Nate to it as well. Mortmain's company makes cogs, the type Will found in the Dark Sisters' home. He admits that a powerful Downworlder came to him looking for cheap machinery. Hesitantly, he names de Quincey, a vampire who has supposedly been an ally to the Shadowhunters.
More evidence is found that the Magister has already begun creating an army of automatons to destroy them. From The Codex: They are descended from an archangel named Raziel. The black runic marks cut into their skin with a stylus-like tool are written in the language of heaven. The marks provide different kinds of protection including healing and concealing. Raziel gave the Shadowhunters powerful magic objects called the Mortal Instruments, including a tiny piece of land that humans couldn't enter called Idris.
The Codex says vampires and werewolves are humans infected with demon disease. Warlocks are the offspring of humans and demons. It tells how vampires employ subjugates, mundanes who swear themselves to the service of and provide blood to their vampire masters. Tessa reads about the Accords, a historic treaty between the Shadowhunters and Downworlders in which they agree to fight demons as their common foe. Groups such as Night Children vampires , Lilith's children warlocks , Fairies and Moon's Children were all present at the signing.
Will likes a London street filled with gambling halls, opium dens and brothels. Many such establishments are run or frequented by Downworlders.
Downworlders often draw humans into their card games and trick them so the mundanes will be forced into servitude to pay their debts. The Pandemonium Club is one such establishment with an emphasis on occult activities. Members use demon drugs and summon demons and spirits. The Magister invents an army of mechanical creatures to fight the Shadowhunters.
One such creature warns the Nephilim to beware; it says their angel cannot protect them against that which neither God nor the Devil has made, an army born of neither heaven nor hell. The creatures are covered in skin that has been harvested from dead human bodies like those found in the Dark Sisters' house. I cried when he said that he wanted Tessa to grow to love Will. I cried when he said he wanted to see Charlotte's baby.
I cried when he said silent brotherhood was his only choice. Then I really seriously balled my eyes out when Jem said goodbye to Tessa and Will. They had to live without him?!?!!? Then I as so happy during the epilogue that I cried some more.
Finally years later he gets to have a happy life with Tessa!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if we will get to see him and Tessa together in The Mortal Instruments?! Or The Dark Artifices?!?!?! I'm still kind of confused by the timelines of all this?! I believe Mortal Instruments is and the epilogue was so maybe a chance for Dark Artifices?! So things that did piss me off. And then at least after that they took time but I thought it was because Will was giving Tessa time to grieve and himself time to grieve but really he was just scared that Tessa wouldn't love him like she did Jem?!
Well of course not because Jem is so much better than you! But whatever Will died and now Tessa is with Jem!!!!! Over all her lifetime with Will and 71 years after his death she still never stopped loving Jem or wearing his necklace!!!!!!!!!!! He looked at her with a light in his thin face that made it more beautiful.
But we already are engaged. I do not thing on can get engaged twice. A time when you are well and everything is perfect. She understood it. In all the world, you are what I love the most. That no one else would hear or own. And I am not good with words, so I wrote how I felt about you in music.
And it was beautiful. I have loved you. I always have, and I always will. Tessa reached to brush the damp hair from his forehead. He leaned into her touch, his eyes closing. Like my parents before me. It does not mean I hate my father. But I honor the gift they gave me, the blood of the Angel, the trust placed in me, the vows I have taken. Nor, I think, would I make a very good vampire. No, Tessa. I would rather die and be reborn and see the sun again, than live to the end of the world without daylight.
His eyes softened slightly. For a moment, they were in perfect understanding. Jem was what they could still look each other straight in the eye about. On the topic of Jem, they were both fierce and unyielding. Tessa fought to keep the look of shock from her face. His pupils were blown out, his irises a thin ring of silver around the black. He had told her many violinists used a shoulder rest, but he did not: Not for their own sakes.
I can make inquiries. Track down some of the more unusual shipping routes. He will die anyway. Swoon for Jem http: I am freaking out over the one little teaser from this book And the gold of her ruined wedding dress. They better get married! View all comments. Team Will? Team Jem?
Who cares. This book was undeniably flawed, but you will definitely get what you came for: There's so much love that sometimes you're like: It ends the same way it began. What I didn't like: By the way, here's my pre-review: Wouldn't you pay a thousand JEMS to know. That awful pun was almost as groan-inducing as the love triangle itself.
See below! I mean c'mon lady-- could you make it any more predictable? Part of the problem is that everyone read: But dare I ask the question; Why is Jem the inferior love interest? Freaky isn't it? How she can turn people into little slimy things? Who knows, maybe one day she'll turn all twilight fans to mush right before my eyes OR take away Bella's voice so that she can't whine anymore? Ahhh the possibilities are endless Where was I? Oh right. Will's "curse". It isn't fair. YA isn't fair. LIFE isn't fair.
I love these books. I just hate love triangles on principle. My poor heart has never felt this way after finishing a series; I had no idea it was possible to feel such tempered happiness as well as such overwhelming grief for everyone involved. Many of the things I thought might happen, did--and yet it doesn't change my fierce love and admiration for the way everything unfolded.
THIS is how a love triangle should be written, in a way that preserves the honor of everyone involved. There isn't another series out there that has ever managed to handle one wit My poor heart has never felt this way after finishing a series; I had no idea it was possible to feel such tempered happiness as well as such overwhelming grief for everyone involved.
There isn't another series out there that has ever managed to handle one with such love and kindness and respect. Ugh, that epilogue. Still sobbing uncontrollably. I don't know how to stop! My puny human heart wasn't meant to process such epic love stories.
If you're considering reading the Infernal Devices series, I wrote a real review for Clockwork Prince here , which is book 2. It contains no spoilers, even if you haven't read the first book. Feb 02, Jesse JesseTheReader rated it it was amazing.
I could've never possibly predicted that ending. Even when I thought I knew what might happen, I had no idea.
I'm so overly impressed by this trilogy. View all 45 comments. To be continued when I can read in one sitting. Sep 12, Nick rated it it was amazing Shelves: You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog! Clockwork Prince Review! I have been so caught up You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog! That is all. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside. I do not want to sit by while tragedy comes for us.
I would turn it aside, only I struggle to discover how that might be done. For you to be my eyes when I do not have them. For you to be my hands when I cannot use my own. For you to be my heart when mine is done beating.
You have found two. Not to be loved or not to be able to love: The words of the poem had never seemed so fitting: Forever and ever, my brother, hail and farewell. For this I would have given up everything. Will Will has also all the great qualities a man should have,but what I liked about him was that he doesn't play the perfect innocent person. James Jem,as Will contains the best qualities a person could contain,and also because of that and the fact that he is dying and he perfectly handles that makes you idol this character.
Cecily I was introduced to this character in the third book,but I truly like her. View all 97 comments. Jan 30, Beth rated it it was amazing Shelves: You are lucky enough to have found two. I will never ever stop loving this series. My poor heart. That epilogue, just everything. I remember this book being good. BUT the second time it was just wonderful.
I can honestly say a book has never ever made me feel like this has. Another 5 Stars! Completely spoiler free! For the final book i "Most people never find one great love in their life. For the final book in The Infernal Devices series, I have never been so happy. Everything about this was perfect. I laughed, I cried, I cried some more, I had goosebumps, it just overall made me feel something! Will, Jem and Tessa I just love these three so much, I feel like we've been on such a journey, so many ups and downs but we finally made it!
How could three people who cared for one anther so much cause one another so much pain?
Okay firstly, I love the friendship between all three of them. The fact that Jem is always there for Will whether he is wrong or right. That Will is always there for his Parabatai if he is ill. There is so much love between them both that just makes something so special. I enjoyed that there was no jealousy between the three and that they all loved each other equally.
On my first read I was always Will, I still am. However I can now say I do have a soft spot in the shape of Jem.
I realised how much he cares for Tessa and Will. I loved how he treated Tessa and always tried to do something special for her. Whereas Will he loves her fiercely and I wish we'd had the chance to see it a lot more! I need more of all three of them please. Charlotte and Henry once again, such lovable characters, I'm still laughing about the middle name!
Charlotte is the mother type, and I think a role needed to be set in this! I love how she is head strong and does what she believes is right. Henry is so supportive and I love his little quirks.
I think the relationship between these two in this book is so much more than what it was. They both know how they truly feel and it is honestly so heartwarming reading about them both together. I can't stop picturing Henry as this man with ginger hair with explosions all around him!
At times I felt so sorry for Charlotte, simply for the fact that it is very much a "mans world" however she is who she is and she stood her ground! Gideon, Gabriel, Sophie and Cecy ahhhhhh.
How do I keep this so I don't go into full on babble mode? Okay firstly I loved the pairings of these. The moment that Sophie realised about them Scones.
I couldn't cope from laughing! I love how Gideon is the calm to the storm and is so reasoning and so gentle. Especially with Sophie. Sophie makes me slightly weak with how much I like her as a character!
Gabriels relationship with Cecy was actually adorable, I couldn't remember whether or not I liked him. But yeah I guess he's not so bad! There were so many funny moments with this group and I can't even begin to name them all.
I don't think I've ever liked so many characters! What I liked? It was always something that amused me throughout even when I was on the verge of tears. Magnus's response to that was just so adorable! I always love to hate someone! I don't know why I do it to myself.
You get a peak into what has happened over the years, I couldn't even explain why. Well I could but you know It honestly broke my heart but in a lovely way What I didn't like?
The Infernal Devices are without pity. The Infernal Devices are without regret. The Infernal Devices are without number. The Infernal Devices will never stop coming I'm sad that it's over until my next re-read, but I have loved every moment! I'm also sorry for my numerous updates, I just can't help myself when it comes to The Infernal Devices! Speaking of letters, I loved all of the letters throughout, we got to see a look in to how the corresponded and different perspectives from other characters.
My Tessa - So many people getting their just desserts: To see her character grow from strength to strength and do what is right even though others thought she couldn't I just loved it - Will reading to Tessa in a time of need - Any mention of worms - I've said it earlier, and I'll say it again.
That epilogue. Destroyed for ever. All Reviews: Clockwork Princess - 5 Stars! The Infernal Devices Manga Reviews: View all 47 comments.
This review is also on Living for the Books I can't believe it's over. This series has been one of my favorites for the past couple years and it's always been in the back of my mind.
So now that it's over I'm not sure what to do with myself. Guess I'll just have to read some more books. I'm going to try to make this as spoiler free as possible. But you are tied to the story as if bring dragged behind a carriage, and you cannot let go or turn the course aside. There was no way this book could have ended without some sort of heartbreak. And believe me the ending was so heartbreaking but also so sweet. The characters were absolutely amazing and so realistic.
I cared about all of them which is very rare since I'm kind of picky about the characters I like. But all of them were unique and had their own story that made them who they were.
After risking so much, I was so glad that most of them got their happy endings. The love triangle in this book is how a love triangle should be written. Many books have love triangles but most of them are nothing like the Will-Tessa-Jem love triangle. Loving both guys is just a recipe for heartbreak.
The relationships between all the characters was also another part of the book that I love. Will and Jem's friendship made them like brothers and it was so heartbreaking when Will or Jem would think of when they were children or the adventures they had. I sobbed whenever Will thought of the first time he met Jem.
Even though Tessa can't fight like the Shadowhunters she's still powerful in her own way. I loved how she was so determined and willing to give anything to protect the people that she loves. I'm definitely going to miss her as a main character. Clockwork Princess was a much darker read than the other two books in the series.
Despite that, the book had me laughing. Not as often as in the other books but the little bits of humor were perfectly timed. The sarcasm in all of Cassandra Clare's books never fails to make me laugh.
The ending was actually very satisfying even though I was crying so much I couldn't even read the page. I totally called who Brother Zachariah was but I never would have guessed the twist at the very end of the book. When you read this book I highly recommend keeping a box of tissues close by just so you're prepared. Now I must say goodbye to one of my favorite series and the characters I have come to love.
Before reading Dear Tessa Choose Will! You obviously love him even if you won't admit it! I do think that you love Jem but not the same way you love Will.
Just remember that Will loves you and you are tearing him apart! I would be happy as long as you don't end up with Jem! View all 85 comments. Sep 15, Melanie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I actually think the epilogue in this book is now my favorite of all time.
All time. Like, that is som 1. Like, that is some praise, friends. This book made me so happy, and so sad, all at the same time. But I think the ending was perfect, absolutely perfect. Love is really the focal point of this entire book. Love can be messy, and complicated, and even cause you hurt and pain, but it is always worth it, and it is never wrong.
Seeing Will, Tessa, and Jem love each other, so unconditionally, is something that moves to me to tears just writing this paragraph. And even though I think they totally should have been in a polyamorous relationship, I think that the depiction of their messy, complicated, and even hurtful and painful love was so expertly done.
I might have been weeping, but I was also swooning, my friends. The only three minor complaints about this book! Josiah Wayland, the dick were just boring to read. I know they were very important, I just never really got enjoyment from reading them.
Lastly, people always complain about this with other YA authors, but Cassie Clare also literally pairs everyone off together in her books. Especially since this series really focuses so much on themes of the importance of found families. But the rest of my review is going to touch on a couple key things that happened in this book and things that have happened in previous books, so please use caution reading the rest of this review if you have not read this book and its predecessors!
Spoilers ahead! Her and Magnus both just tug at every heartstring I have. But I love her character, I loved her growth, and I even loved her struggle to be enough, to be loved, and to be happy. Every year, Tessa, on one day, I will meet you on that bridge. I will come from the Silent City and I will meet you, and we will be together, if only for an hour. But you must tell no one. Music means so much to me, and the power, healing, and love that it creates really does transcend everything.
My sweet, kind, unconditionally loving, boy. Of the girl who had hit over the head with a water jug the boy who had come to rescue her, and how he had fallen in love with her in that instant. And not to make light of the situation, and I do think it is important to see some beloved characters move on, but I would have so gotten bit by a vampire. Like, these shadowhunters are wild.
Her heart is so big, and she always finds even more room to love others. Such a great character. Did it surprise you all? I mean… I knew Henry had red hair. I mean, I should have guessed. But how perfect is that lineage marker?
Easily one of my favorites of this trilogy. Ahhh, my heart. But I really did love the addition of Cecily, even though I see many of my friends did not. Magnus really is my favorite from this entire world, and he proves over and over how selfless he is time and time again.
And it truly makes the perfect connection to everything him and Alec are going through in The Mortal Instruments. But I think he did a good job at showing us how abusive people will do anything to get their way; even lulling you into a false sense of security.
Nothing really else to say. Overall, I loved this book with my entire heart and soul. Yet, I will say that I think she gets better and better as a writer, and everyone promises me more fae in The Dark Artifices so we will see!
The Full Story forever! Happy reading! View all 68 comments. I officially died and went to heaven when I finally got this book in my hands. And it was freaking amazing.
Everything about this book was perfect, and it ended absolutely perfectly. And it was SO. I couldn't handle the level of sadness. Even so, still perfection. View all 22 comments. So I have read the book. Now, I'd feel really bad if I had to deleted the whole what-the-fuck-is-gonna-happen conjectures I'd written in this 'review' before reading it, so I'll just put everything into spoiler. So if you haven't read the book yet, you can open the spoiler as it's not actually a spoiler but only a list of my thoughts BEFORE reading the book.
We team up with Will!
It kind of looks like Megan Fox, there. Doesn't it? I think it does. A LOT. Anyway, it has a cover. Tessa, this song is for you, darling.
From the bottom of my heart. Sort of. I only use "fucking" to underline the concept. This one's easy. That's Tessa. This one is much more fucking difficult and has got me pulling my hair out trying to decipher it. Brother Zachariah seems to be more open to talk than the other Silent Brothers. He tells Maryse he had a life, and he would have risked it for the people he loved. It's either Will or Jem. There's no real explanation, because there could've been hundreds of other Shadowhunters who corresponded to that description, but here Cassandra Clare is clearly sending us a message so we're taking it.
Maryse mentions the fact that his eyes are covered, so she can't see them. Well duh. I didn't even expect to be able to. By now I know Cassandra Clare better. But anyway: His eyes are blue, a blue so dark that it's almost black, and I figured they would attract attention. So I was like, if Maryse can't see his eyes, they're probably Will's. Because blue eyes like his are so much rare than Jem's dull brown one.
I figured Jem would've found a way to get back to normal. Otherwise he wouldn't have been able to survive that long, would he? Not to mention that his pale skin would be noticeable. But then I slapped myself for being such an idiot. They're fucking Asian eyes. I'm still on brother Zachariah. Despite my earlier suspicions that we was indeed Will, I'm starting to think that maybe it's Jem.
At nearly the end of the book, when I-can't-remember-who asked him if there had been people he really cared about in his life, he replies that he would have risked his life for TWO PEOPLE. And here you're saying, "well, so what? I would've risked it for Tessa and Jem. But wait. Unless he's a total monster, he also has a sister to care about.
Or maybe his sister dies. And that is a maybe. Because after that there would only be two people to protect. But still. If he really is Brother Zachariah, then Jem would've been long dead before that.
So what? Oh and by the way, they said Brother Zachariah has a chiseled cheekbone. Didn't Will have a chiseled cheekbone? Or was it Jem? If Jace had come from Cecily's line, then he wouldn't have the Herondale name. She's a woman, so he would assume the father's name. Otherwise it could be Will's. But if he was, then Will couldn't be Brother Zachariah.
But maybe Will and Tessa ended up together, and had children because maybe Tessa was some kind of special warlock , and Jem became a Silent Brother? That's a possibility. Though there still is something unclear about it: Why do the Lightwoods have Will's features black hair blue eyes , and Jace does not? I would say that maybe Cecily ends up with Gabriel or something.
That way, hte Lightwoods would inherit her features, which are also Will's.
