True love is shrouded in secrets and lies in the #1 New York Times bestselling second book of the Infernal Devices trilogy.
In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when it becomes clear that the mysterious Magister will stop at nothing to use Tessa?s powers for his own dark ends.
With the help of the handsome, tortured Will and the devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister?s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal and fueled by revenge. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister knows their every move?and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa is drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa answers about who she really is? As their search leads to deadly peril, Tessa learns that secrets and lies can corrupt even the purest heart.
An intense love triangle, compelling steampunk mystery, dark family histories, and vendettas populate the second book in the Infernal Devices series. The Clave has given Charlotte just two weeks before taking the Institute away from her, and as Tessa's advocate, the girl's solace with the Shadowhunters will be short-lived. Tessa sets off on a terrifying quest with Will and Jem to discover more about the Magister and what his craven plans include. Torn between the love of both Jem and Will, Tessa must also contend with unraveling her warlock status and shapeshifting skills. A clockwork demon is just the beginning of the terrible threat that lies before them. The Infernal Devices series is set in the same world as the bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
