Still reeling from her terrifying confrontation with the Magister and her brother's betrayal, Tessa Gray is drawn ever deeper into the Shadowhunter's dark underworld of demons and danger. In a desperate attempt to help her friends, Tessa tries to uncover the truth about the Magister and learns that he blames the Shadowhunters for the murder of his parents nearly a half century ago. But who were his parents, and why did the Shadowhunters kill them? Determined to unravel the secrets of his past, Tessa, Will and Jem journey to mist-shrouded Yorkshire, only to encounter corrupt Shadowhunters more intent on burying the past than finding the Magister - a past that holds the key not only to the enemy's motivations and weakness, but to the secret of what Tessa really is and what she was born to do. Meanwhile, Tessa's feelings for Jem and Will are growing more complicated, and soon she is forced to acknowledge that any choice she makes will either save the Shadowhunters of London - or end them for ever.

I bought this volume for one of my Granddaughters. She is overjoyed with it, although I must admit it is not my type of book. Still, she is happy so I am happy.

As much as I enjoyed The Mortal Instruments series (and I really liked them), I think The Infernal Devices series (only two books so far) is even better. Not that I'm an expert in Victorian England, but I thought the prose/dialogue was accurate, as well as the descriptions of London of that era. I can't wait for the third book.
