First of all I want to say that I haven't read the TMI series yet, so the reincarnation of TMI's main characters to Tessa and Will is not a problem for me.
I picked this book knowing that it's better than CoB as many readers say, yes I enjoy reading this book, I really do, but after reading this book and Clockwork Prince I am now in doubt if I will still enjoy the TMI series, and if I will continue to finish this series.
I love the world of Shodowhunters, it's something unique that a paranormal world could offer, and it all takes place on Victorian London, so hurray! I finally lived in London. The story was very compelling despite of it being slow paced. I love Cassandra Clare's writing it is very descriptive and detailed, sad to say that this is the main reason why I struggled to finish it, feels like it ruined the good parts of the book. The characters development are well written, I love how complicated their story is, how they sacrificed, their struggles, how they protect one another. I don't like Tessa though, I'm really not into a fictional girl with a severe I-can't-move-on I-can't-get-him-out-off-my-head syndrome.
Overall a lovable book.
