The special Collector's First Edition will include a never-before-seen letter from Will to his family

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street--and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move--and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will--the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Tessa Gray has finally found a safe place with the Shadowhunters but that safety is proving to be all too fleeting as rogue forces in the world of the Shadowhunters are trying to get Tessa’s protector, Charlotte, removed as the head of the London Institute. If Charlotte is no longer running the Institute than Tessa will be out on the streets by herself with no way to protect herself from the Magister. The Magister is the person who is determined to use Tessa’s powers for his own dark ends.

With help from both Will, who has a tendency to be self-destructive and the deeply devoted Jem, Tessa find that the Magister’s war against the Shadowhunters is very personal. The Magister blames the Shadowhutners for a tragedy that shattered his life. To find the truth they are going to have to travel to a Yorkshire manor house that has untold horrors. They will also have to go from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa learns the truth of her parentage is a lot more sinister than she had thought.

When a clockwork demon delivers a warning to Will they find that somehow the Magister knows all their moves and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds herself drawn more and more to Jem while she also longs for Will. Though something is changing in Will and the walls he has built around himself are coming down. Will finding the Magister give Tessa the answers she is seeking about herself and will it finally free Will from the secrets he is keeping? The danger increases the more they search for the Magister.


This is another great story in the trilogy. The story pulls the reader into the world of clockwork devises and has so many twists and turns that the reader will want to read this one straight through. The reader will never see some of the twists this one takes and it will leave readers desperately reading just to see what comes next. The plot is well written and will have readers guessing what is going on and just what will happen next. The story will also have readers wanting the last book in the trilogy just to see how it all ends.
