Review: I loved this book just as much as the first book after the climatic ending to the first book this book carried on where it left off with still so many questions that need to be answered this book adds more and more questions. There are some excellent plot twists from what you though you knew from Clockwork Angel. This book didn't have as fast pace as the previous book but it kept you turning the page. One of the best parts for me about this book was that the love triangle progressed A lot in this book because of what happens between Jem and Tessa. When Will rids himself of his curse it means that they are able to form a more of a relationship that cannot be and now we no that one person is going to get hurt out of this. I found this book to be a very enjoyable second book because some second books don't always contain to much because it is just the bridge between the world building and character introducing to the last book where all the questions are answered and the action happens but this book was A very good book that didn't feel like you were reading a second book at all.
Some of my very few bad points was that the climax was really early in the book it was almost three chapters from the end and Cassandra Clare's chapters are so long that i found the ending drag a little and could have been more condense
the book didn't have as fast a pase this was because the Magister was not in it for most of the book. This book was about him and his past but he was not in the book at all leaving the bad guy role in this book to Nate.
This is one of my favourite books and series and you must read them it has an amazing world and is easy to follow.
