Tessa travels to London from America in search of her older brother Nate, and with his slight addiction to alcohol it was no mystery he vanished. When her boat docks, she is greeted by “The Dark Sisters” – at least, that’s what Tessa calls them. Ms. Dark and Ms. Black lure her in with a promise that Nate sent them to get her. They lied. The Dark Sisters imprisoned Nate and are using Tessa and her ‘gift’ as they call it to please a notorious man called “The Magister.” When a mysterious boy named Will enters her life, Tessa must learn to get along with him, control her newfound gift, and find her brother.
This book takes place in the 16th century and is a prequel to The Mortal Instruments series. I was immediately taken in when Will’s character entered the story. His constant use of sarcasm and witty personality keep the book alive with humor. You should give this book a look. [NeonREADer101]
