Ah Cassandra Clare, I love you so much, but this, this was eh.
The Infernal Devices trilogy is supposed to take place BEFORE the Mortal Instruments series. This follows Tessa who can shape shift into other people and can help the Clave. Meanwhile, she is taken into the world of the Shadowhunters and it goes from there.
I loved the Mortal Instruments series. Truly. This, I’m not sure. I know a lot of people say that this is kind of better than the MI series but I’m not sure. As I am typing this, I am currently reading the second book to this and so far it is a little bit confusing but I think I’m getting it.
I like how Magnus is back in this and I love the characters in this a little bit more than the MI (but nothing can replace Clary, just saying). I liked how it takes place in London because that is one of my favorite cities and I feel like not a lot of books that I personally read take place in historical London.
Overall rating is 4/5
