by Cassandra Clare
This is the second book in the Infernal Devices series. This story picks right up from where the last book ended. I didn't get a chance to mention in my review of Clockwork Angel that I really like the artwork on the cover of this series. I can't really explain what I like so much but for some reason they just really grab my attention.
Like that last book, I was completely enthralled by this story and it took my only about a day to finish. I was thankful that I didn't have to wait the entire book to find out what Will's secret was since I had been waiting to find out since that last book. In fact you found out pretty early on in the book, which I thought was great. I think I would have been really annoyed if I had gotten through the entire book and still not know why he acted the way he did.
I could tell from the set up of the last book that there was going to be a love triangle involved in this series and that became very obvious in this book. Sorry for the spoiler but I really think that anyone reading this book would have come to that conclusion early on in the first book. There are definitely more amorous encounters and I was a little worried how far she might take it, but it turned out ok. There was also plenty of action to keep me interested in what was going to happen next.
I thought this was a very entertaining read. I really loved reading more about these characters and I look forward to reading the third book.
