I fell in love with this book, the minute I started reading. The old age, historical setting drew me in, but the supernatural story line kept me interested. I love how the main character Tessa held her own, and refused to be pushed around by anyone. The author, Cassandra Clare, also wove an intricate, subtle romance between Tessa and her newfound ally, Will, that kept me rooting for them the whole way. This book was definitely packed with acion, mystery, suspense, and romance. I LOVED this book.
