I absolutely love this series. Tessa is an amazing example of a strong-willed, capable woman in her culture. Even though she has feelings for Will, she does not become a slobbering, self-pitying idiot when he seemingly rejects her at the end of the first novel. She moves on with her life, finding love elsewhere and focusing on the real mystery of her life: what she really is. Tessa also has a great capacity for mercy that I really connect with, a selflessness that is sometimes missing in the culture of today.

Will of course is rife with secrets, and his sharpedged personailty is completely intriguing. Why does he hurt the people he obviously cares for? What drives his dark side? The answer to this question was compelling and original. I was shocked and moved to pity this beautiful shadowhunter.

*SPOILERS* The only thing I really didn't like was the outcome of Will's curse. I was hoping for something with explosive magic,not a trick.
