Tessa has discovered a lot about herself, her family and the strangers that are gradually becoming her friends as well as only family. Tessa’s brother Nate has been able to break her heart and stomp all over it. The London Institute is in great turmoil because Benedict Lightwood wants to take he Institute from the Director, Charlotte Branwell. Benedict Lightwood believes that Charlotte is not capable of running the Institute because not only is she a woman but also because there have been many mishaps that have occurred as well. Alexi Mortmain has not given up on his revenge towards the Shadowhunters because he believes that his parents were killed unjustly. Although Tessa is having a constant struggle of the heart because of two different boys, she still manages to help her friends and give them plenty of love as well.
Tessa’s life is very fascinating.l; she continues to figure out more and more about her power, the strength in it, as well as some family history. I also enjoy Jem’s character so much. I love that Jem does not allow his physical condition to destroy his love for others or his duty to protect humanity and the people that he loves. I enjoyed reading about Jem and Tessa because their friendship is very strong, they care for the well-being of others and they are willing to sacrifice their lives for the people that they love. I would recommend this book and series to everyone that would like to read it. The story and history is very interesting, there is plenty of action and excitement, the characters have evolved from the first novel, the characters are full of life and full of love. There is so much love among shadowhunters, a warlock and a servant girl. I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the book as well as the series.
