Technically I didn’t read this one, but listened to it in audio book format. I think that may have tainted my view on it a little as the narrator’s voice just wasn’t incredibly pleasant and at times made the characters sound rather whiny. But that just proves how good the writing was because despite that I really enjoyed the story. I love period dramas, and this was one with a magical YA twist. We follow Tessa Grey who has arrived in London to find her brother missing. She is kidnapped by some magical hags but escapes them only to be caught up in Shadowhunter business, for those who don’t know Shadowhunters are like the police of this magical world and Tessa helps them in turn for their help finding her brother. This book was long, but was well paced and worth a read, I’m looking forward to reading the next installment.
