I loved the mortal instruments books and these clockwork books are good too except for me it was a little hard getting into it. That being said once I got into it I couldn't stop reading it or thinking about it. Of course I fell in live with Jace's ancestor will. And tessa was endearing as well. Cassandra Clare does an excellent job of transporting you into the 1800's. I do recommend this book to everyone specially my fellow mortal instruments fanatics!

Rory Deveaux has changed in ways she never could have imagined since moving to London and beginning a new life at boarding school.

Now, a new string of inexplicable deaths is threatening London, and Rory has evidence that they are no coincidence. Something sinister is going on, and it is up to her to convince the citys secret ghost-policing squad to listen before its too late.
