  Library Journal Review

The final volume of Clare's beloved trilogy (Clockwork Angel; Clockwork Prince) opens with the wedding of Tessa Gray and Jem Carstairs, which is promptly interrupted by a thrilling battle. While the demon-fighting Shadowhunters at the London Institute come under attack, Tessa is kidnapped by Axel Mortmain and his sinister automatons, the Infernal Devices. Will Herondale races to save Tessa as Jem suffers life-threatening injuries, and Tessa discovers that she is stronger than she ever realized. This thrilling novel is filled to the brim with romance, action, and adventure. Narrator Daniel Sharman ably conveys danger, drama, and sensitive emotions. VERDICT Listeners will be left dizzy from breathtaking, twisty plot turns as well as the unexpected conclusion to this enchanting series. [The McElderry: S. & S. hc was a New York Times best seller.

Summary
Danger and betrayal, love and loss, secrets and enchantment are woven together in the breathtaking finale to the #1 New York Times bestselling Infernal Devices Trilogy, prequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. THE INFERNAL DEVICES WILL NEVER STOP COMING A net of shadows begins to tighten around the Shadowhunters of the London Institute. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices, an army of pitiless automatons, to destroy the Shadowhunters. He needs only one last item to complete his plan: he needs Tessa Gray. Charlotte Branwell, head of the London Institute, is desperate to find Mortmain before he strikes. But when Mortmain abducts Tessa, the boys who lay equal claim to her heart, Jem and Will, will do anything to save her. For though Tessa and Jem are now engaged, Will is as much in love with her as ever. As those who love Tessa rally to rescue her from Mortmain's clutches, Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. But can a single girl, even one who can command the power of angels, face down an entire army? Danger and betrayal, secrets and enchantment, and the tangled threads of love and loss intertwine as the Shadowhunters are pushed to the very brink of destruction in the breathtaking conclusion to the Infernal Devices trilogy.
